This book delves deep into my archive covering the early tours with Roth in the late ’70s onto the commercial explosion of the early to mid 80’s on through the vastly successful ‘Van Hagar’ era covering every album and tour and even the Gary Cherone fronted VH III era. I always enjoyed shooting Van Halen, from a photographers perspective they always gave you something and the many studio shoots always generated a lot of laughter and good memories.Related: Eddie Van Halen’s Final Concert In 2015 Surfaces Online With Soundboard Audio [Full-Show Video]Scroll down to watch a pair of promotional videos for the forthcoming photobook shared by Rufus Publications.Van Halen By Ross Halfin (The Hagar Edit) Promotional Video[Video: Rufus Stone Limited Editions]Edward Van Halen By Ross Halfin Promotional Video[Video: Rufus Stone Limited Editions]Scroll down to check out some of Halfin’s photos of the late rock guitarist to be included in the book.
