All aspiring guitarists know and always try to emulate the greats: Hendrix, Page, Clapton. Now up and coming axe wielders can get to know the story and technique of Eddie Van Halen better, through an edition of the Fretmaster series focusing on the guitarist.

Released by Backbeat Books on August 29th, Eddie Van Halen: Know The Man, Play The Music, covers Van Halen's life from high school all the way to present day, as well as provides lessons on how to achieve his technique and skills. Written by Malcolm Dome and Rod Fod, Know The Man runs 160 pages in length.

Spending most of their time on the stadium concert circuit, Van Halen still draws huge crowds. The band's last studio album was 1998's Van Halen III, which featured yet another lead singer. Van Halen first appeared on the scene in 1978 with their largely celebrated self-titled debut.
