KFIX Rock News: Eddie Van Halen Biography Due In 2015

KGG-000063A biography of Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen titled “Eruption” is due to be published in 2015.

Paul Brannigan, co-author of the forthcoming two-volume biography of Metallica, “Birth School Metallica Death”, has been picked to helm the project.

An excerpt from a press release reads:

“…the book promises to explore how it was the incendiary playing of the young guitarist which launched the band Van Halen into the consciousness of America in early 1978, and transformed the musical landscape.”

“Offering the first real examination of a true musical icon, it will also turn up the volume on a life lived in popular music’s fast lane.”

Rights to the book have been acquired by Faber & Faber and is expected to be published by Da Capo in the U.S.
