New Van Halen Book Released

.
(hennemusic) A new Van Halen book is on the market. "Van Halen: Exuberant California, Zen Rock 'N' Roll" is written by John Scanlan, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at Manchester Metropolitan University.

A book description states: "I hate the word maturing", singer David Lee Roth once said. "I don't like the word evolving or any of that bullsh*t. The point is to keep it as simplistic, as unassuming, and as stupid as possible."

Examining Roth's sentiment, "Van Halen: Exuberant California, Zen Rock 'N' Roll" follows the band's pursuit of the art of artlessness, and describes how they characterize what historian Kevin Starr terms 'Zen California' a state of mind and way of being that above all celebrates 'the now'. In rock'n' roll terms it stands for the unregulated expenditure of energy; for a youthful exuberance that seems destined to extinguish itself." more on this story
