Dance the Night Away. Somebody Get Me a Doctor. Bottoms Up! Outta Love Again. Light up the Sky. Women in Love. Beautiful Girls. Jul 08, Straw rated it it was ok.
A book that comes across as a vendetta and isn't all that interesting. Unless you a diehard fan, steer clear of wasting your time. Jul 14, Tim Trewartha rated it liked it. Entertaining memoir from the former manager of Van Halen. This book covers the David Lee Roth era of the band, from through to Contains the usual quota of appalling behavior tales from life on the road from a hard drinkin', hard druggin', hard shaggin' hard rock band.
And whilst this is a good read, it's also pretty sad, seeing a bunch of talented naive kids turn into a bunch of selfish, drug affected assholes. Their treatment of bassist Michael Anthony on the tour is just awful. Can't believe he stuck around for another 2 decades.
Runnin' With the Devil
Noel Monk was fired by the band in , not long before singer David Lee Roth quit the band to pursue a career in self-parody. Monk goes the hack on the band a few times, but I think that time is a healer for the ex-manager. If this book came out in the late 80s it would have been way more ruthless. Ultimately i think he feels sorry for them. If you love the Van Halen you'll dig this. Can't believe he thinks 'Fair Warning' is a mediocre album.
It's their best record, easily. Mar 05, Lana Revok rated it really liked it. A highly entertaining look back at the David Lee Roth era of Van Halen written by the band's former manager. While the book offers some hilarious and horrifying insight into why the band imploded during the highest point of their career I still couldn't help but feel like there where a few lingering questions as to why the manager seemed a little passive during some of the fights and bad decision making.
And I would certainly love to hear the band's point of view on all this though I know that A highly entertaining look back at the David Lee Roth era of Van Halen written by the band's former manager. And I would certainly love to hear the band's point of view on all this though I know that will probably never happen. Nov 13, Jon Zelazny rated it really liked it Shelves: rock-n-roll.
Tales of famous bad boy dickhead antics you've read variations of in a hundred other rock bios? Tales of a guy trying to manage these famous bad boy dickheads? Jun 15, Charles rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfic-music. An enjoyable look behind the scenes with Van Halen in the early days, written by their primary manager in their rise to fame.
There are the usual outrageous stories, but a lot more stuff about personalities and about the business side than is usual in such books.

Definitely not a "tell-all" sort of book. Jul 12, Matthew Treya rated it it was ok. Ah me! Nothing new here.
Talented rock band falls prey to drugs, alcohol, excess, and ego. Once again, my fault!
Runnin' With the Devil
What the heck was I expecting? No surprise, either, that Alex is now a man of the cloth. I suppose he came to realize he was lucky to have survived. Aug 26, Mr Breeze rated it it was amazing. This book was awesome. I like the music of Van Halen quite a bit, but would not consider myself a fanatic or disciple of Eddie Van Halen. I like both Van Halen and Van Hagar. This book really pulled the curtain back for me on what happened in Van Halen's early days and rise to superstardom, at least from one point of view.
I was surprised on who the "bad guy" was in the end.
I was not surprised at the characterizations of some of the main characters.
