Praise for Everybody Wants Some: The Van Halen Saga:
One of 2007's Most Intriguing Books, LA Weekly
"Highly recommended for Van Halen completists," Chuck Klosterman, Esquire
"Respect is due to author Ian Christe. His book is perfectly pitched, capturing both the flamboyant excitement and inherent absurdity of the rampant ego collective known as Van Halen," Geoff Barton, Classic Rock
"Good band, even better book...Christe's knowledge, wit, style and passion are perfectly suited...essential reading," Record Collector UK
"Van Halen Reunites--Just in Time for Their Excellent Unauthorized Bio...", The Village Voice NY
"Written in jubilant, elastic prose, Ian Christe's Everybody Wants Some is a sort of Day-Glo fairy tale...savvy, sympathetic, expert, funny ha-ha," The Boston Phoenix
"[Christe's] not fooling around. And his prose is always playful," Los Angeles Times
"A new biography of the band that made metal marketable doesn't disappoint the fans," The American Prospect
"Christe chronicles the sweeping scope of the Van Halen saga," The Chicago Sun-Times
"Christe is back with a shockingly clear view of life behind the iron curtain that is Van Halen. Christe gives his readers a chance to relive the glory days of Sunset Strip glam Metal, while exploring the complex relationships between the brothers Alex and Eddie Van Halen," BringBackGlam.com
"Entertaining and frequently surprising," Cleveland Scene
"Christe has written a book that is stylish, succinct, breathtaking and as dazzling as an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo. If you ever stared in the mirror and attempted to imitate David Lee Roth with leaps and splits from the 'Jump' video, then this book is for you," AntiMusic.com
"Even if you aren't a Van Halen fan, if you ever liked 'Runnin' with the Devil', 'Unchained,' 'Panama,' or even 'Poundcake' you have to have to read this book. I'm recommending it to all my friends, I enjoyed it as much as Motley Crue's The Dirt!", GuitarNoize.com
