Brad Tolinski and Chris Gill have been in the guitar media world for decades. Through that, these fellas have had many, many epic conversations with some of the most influential guitarists to ever walk the planet.

They had the opportunity to interview Eddie Van Halen multiple times, and the resulting 50+ hours of interviews were compiled into an epic tome called Eruption: Conversations With Eddie Van Halen. It is a great read, and I really enjoyed talking with Chris and Brad about their respective histories, how the book came together, Eddie's impact on culture, how guitar media has evolved and a whole lot more.

You can grab the book from one of my favorite independent book stores HERE.
