Editorial Reviews

Van Halen fans got the best present when the legendary Los Angeles rockers confirmed the long-standing rumor that they will be reuniting for a new album and tour with original madcap lead singer David Lee Roth. This excellent documentary shows you the story of Van Halen, rare interviews and an exclusive biography.

1.0 out of 5 stars WORST VIDEO EVER June 24, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Buyer beware. This is the worst video on the subject of the great Van Halen that has ever been issued any time, any where. The only interviews are with Dave, post Van Halen, with the only reference to Van Halen being in passing. No Ed, no Al, and no Mike. The so called "exclusive biography" is a quick scroll of text that any 10 year old could have put together. The information given is common knowledge that you can find on any website. It even has the gull to mention that poser, Sam. Avoid this video at all costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading & POOR quality June 26, 2012
By kgweb
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is A JOKE! Most of the interviews only discuss Roth's solo work, with barely a mention of Van Halen. There is no visual Van Halen content AT ALL. Also, the picture quality is
poor, and the editing must have been done by a 3 year old. A TOTAL waste of money, AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless!!! January 23, 2013
Format:DVD
I got to see this for free because there were four copies of it on the DVD shelf at my local library, and even though I didn't pay a cent to view it, I still feel ripped off! Yes, it's THAT bad, just as all the other reviewers here have said. It was a complete waste of time to check it out and bring it home. There's no Van Halen here, only post-VH David Lee Roth interviews from TV. Does anyone really want to hear the sound of DLR's voice without the music of Van Halen behind it? Well, this DVD has made me realize that I, for one, don't. This mess is a low budget hack job that doesn't deliver on anything you'd expect from the title or the brief bit of text on the package. Even more unbelievable than XXL Media's nerve in perpetrating a fraud like this is the fact that TWO people actually want to take credit for it on the back cover, which says, "Produced by John Wood for Intermedia," and, "Co-Producer Mike Castain." What, are Mike and John a couple of unpaid interns who just learned how to use a freely downloaded media editor to convert and stitch together old VHS cassettes taped off broadcast TV in the 1980s? Because that's about what the results look like. Or maybe not even that good. Whatever, this thing is an abysmal rip-off that's not even worth watching if you can see it for nothing. For any Van Halen fans who are actually thinking about paying something for this garbage, save your money.
