As a lifelong Van Halen fan and guitar player I dedicated over two years of my life to the 101 project. 101 is the first true bio on Edward and exhaustive does not even begin to describe my research. I literally utilized damn near every article / interview ever done on / by the band. 101 takes an in depth look at the life, career, music, guitars, impact and influence of Edward Van Halen and his band. Furthermore 101 is brimming with commentary from dozens upon dozens of the world's greatest musicians who were kind enough to come together to pay tribute to EVH. Giants such as Wylde, Holdsworth, Levin, May, Hetfield, Dimebag, King, Scruggs and many more share their thoughts and stories about Van Halen. It has never been done before or since and thus makes 101 a very unique book. In turn 101 has been blessed to have received positive reviews from respected publications such as Guitar Player, Guitar World, Australian Guitar, Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles and Classic Rock UK. I poured my blood, sweat 'n tears into this project and sincerely hope everyone continues to enjoy it. Thank you all for the kind words and support. Be safe :)From the Back Cover:
"Without a doubt, Eddie Van Halen is the greatest guitar player who has ever lived." - Zakk Wylde
Van Halen is as American as apple pie, Ford Mustangs and fake breasts. However underneath all the fun and flash is one of the most important and influential, soulful and successful bands in history. With their explosive 1978 debut they changed the face of rock. As of 2005 they have earned a dozen consecutive multi-Platinum albums with sales reaching in excess of 75 million copies worldwide. Pound for pound, they also happen to be one of the most devastating live bands in history. With thirteen tours and more than 1,300 gigs under their belt they consistently packed sheds from L.A. to Tokyo. The cast of characters is legendary. "Diamond" David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar and Gary Cherone - three dynamic but very different frontmen. Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony - one of the most powerful and consistent rhythm sections in rock. Edward Van Halen - the only rock guitarist in history other than the great Jimi Hendrix to reinvent the electric guitar.
