Van Halen was inactive this year but that didn't stop them from landing a story in top 16 of 2016 after biographer Greg Renoff revealed rarities from the band's past to promote his book about the early days of the group and this week he unearthed a four decade old Van Halen Rock Opera.

The live audio clip of what Renoff calls a rock opera was captured during a live performance at Pasadena High School on April 25th, 1975 and features the two-songs "Eyes Of The Night - Forced Entry".

Renoff's new book "Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal" tells the story of the band's rise to fame and was writing over six years with insight from interviews with Van Halen insiders including founding bassist Michael Anthony as well as Pete Angelus, Marshall Berle, Donn Landee, Ted Templeman, and Neil Zlozower. Check out the rock opera clip here.
