According to the Van Halen News Desk, Guitar World has just published a new book, "Guitar World Presents Van Halen: Eddie Van Halen In His Own Words", which is in stock and shipping now at Van Halen Store (although the official release date is April 15). The book contains three early never-before-published interviews with Eddie Van Halen which were conducted in 1978, 1979 and 1980.

A description of the book reads as follows: "'Eddie Van Halen In His Own Words': The inside story of the world's greatest guitar hero and his legendary band! Featuring a complete history and in-depth interviews from every phase of his spectacular career.

"No musical entity has been more closely associated with Guitar World magazine over the years than Edward Van Halen — the man who, in the late Seventies and early Eighties, changed the course of guitar history.

"This collection of classic and new interviews with the great Edward tells the real story behind his earth-shaking technique, brilliant songwriting, and relationship with both David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar. This is the authoritative book — revised and updated with new exclusive interviews and information on one of the greatest rock bands of all time and the guitar god at the center of it all."
