Runnin with the Devil: A Backstage Pass to the Wild Times, Loud Rock, and the Down and Dirty Truth Behind the Making of Van Halen by Noel E. MonkThe manager who shepherded Van Halen from obscurity to rock stardom goes behind the scenes to tell the complete, unadulterated story of David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, and the legendary band that changed rock music.
Van Halen’s rise in the 1980s was one of the most thrilling the music world had ever seen—their mythos an epic party, a sweaty, sexy, never-ending rock extravaganza. During this unparalleled run of success, debauchery, and drama, no one was closer to the band than Noel Monk. A man who’d worked with some of rock’s biggest and most notorious names, Monk spent seven years with Van Halen, serving first as their tour manger then as their personal manager until 1985, when both he and David Lee Roth exited as controversy, backstabbing, and disappointment consumed the band.
Throughout Van Halen’s meteoric rise and abrupt halt, this confidant, fixer, friend, and promoter saw it all and lived to tell. Now, for the first time, he shares the most outrageous escapades—from their coming of age to their most shocking behavior on the road; from Eddie’s courtship and high profile wedding to Valerie Bertinelli to the incredible drug use which would ultimately lead to everyone’s demise. Sharing never-before-told stories, Monk paints a compelling portrait of Eddie Van Halen, bringing into focus the unique combination of talent, vision, hardship, and naiveté that shaped one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time—and made him and his brother vulnerable to the trappings and failings of fame.
Illustrated with dozens of rare photographs from Monk’s vaults, Runnin’ with the Devil is manna from rock heaven no Van Halen fan can miss.

The EVH brand's High Top is black with a white rubber sole, decorated with a pic of Eddie playing guitar during Van Halen's '78 tour on the outer side. In addition, a circular badge reading " Eddie Van Halen" appears on the inner ankle area, the EVH logo is featured on the tongue and the back of the sole, and a back panel boasts the black-and-white stripe pattern that's seen on Eddie's classic "Eruption" guitar. Van Halen has been idle since its last tour ended in October , although frontman David Lee Roth hinted in an interview with Vulture this past December that the band would be mounting a new trek this year. No official word about the tour has been announced.

The project involved the students going to Sunset Sound studios in Hollywood, where the original album was recorded, and recreating the songs using the original equipment and techniques. While Van Halen was recorded over a three week period in October , the Los Rios students recorded their version of the album in a single day. After locating the original tracking sheets in the Sunset Sound archive, the students recorded their versions by replicating the original positioning of both musicians and microphones as precisely as possible, using the same rooms and mixing desk. To record the car horn, we used an AKG outside, ran a long cable back into the studio, surrounded the mic with several cars, and at the count of 3 everyone blew their horns! It was an amazing way to finish up this project and get a fun insight into what it was like to make the original record. Fans who want to watch more videos of the students completing their version of the album can signup to the Produce Like A Pro newsletter to see another 10 videos documenting the recording. Los Rios Rock School offers private lessons and group rehearsals for aspiring musicians, as well as access to professional gear, live shows, songwriting and recording classes, music theory courses and more.
