Edward Van Halen is, undisputably, the most influential hard rock guitar player to ever grace the planet, post-Hendrix. Neil Zlozower may very well be Eddie's equal, in the realm of rock photography. In this beautiful, hardcover gem of a book, Zlozower captures the guitar legend during his most influential period: the late 70's/early 80's. Many of these photographs form a visual soundtrack to the raw, uncompromising virtuosity that defined Van Halen. The pictures tell part of the story of this musical genius.

Its okay. Make it seven pages and not two. Read my story at golden girl results two to seven. Skip result five because there is no story there. Ask questions at qu second result and ill answer it in result four at qu. No rude comments. If you didnt like something about my story say what i should do better. Your story is okay. It seems interesting but its way too short. Like i said make it seven pages. You didnt upercase the first letter of names either. It seemed a little rushed though. Overall i think you did a nice job of writing. Please continue and read my story. Ps. Its called The Golden Cat. The auther
