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.

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.

This DVD was a not as advertised. It just contained random interviews with David Lee Roth that you can find on YouTube.

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 way back 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.

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!

This DVD is a complete rip-off, waste of money DO NOT BUY! All it is David Lee Roth interviews (4)after Van Halen
It has NOTHING to do with Van Halen, and Amazon and the makers of the DVD are MIS-LEADING the consumers.That should be illeagal!!!My mistake was not reading the reviews, but still it shouldn't say "Van Halen Years". Unless you want
post DLR interview to waste money on, this is a RIP OFF. AMAZON, you should be ashamed for selling this travisty and mis leading the public!!!

Wish I had waited until there were reviews out on this. I want my money back from XXL Media. There is NO documentary on this disc. Like others have mentioned, nothing but poorly edited interviews post-VH and a laughable biography that is quickly scrolling text. This is a con and Amazon should stop selling it as you clearly do not get what is listed.
