Everybody Wants Some, an unauthorized Van Halen bio due out in August, reveals, among other things, precisely how David Lee Roth got some from female groupies. According to an excerpt cited by the New York Post, pre-show Roth would hand out backstage passes marked with individual security guards' initials. Then, during a show, Roth from the stage would single out hotties in the crowd. Depending on whose initialed pass said lass would show up wearing backstage, Roth would pay that guard $100 the next morning at breakfast.

In a statement to fans posted on Van Halen's website, guitarist Eddie Van Halen says that he has decided to enter rehab and seek treatment, for unspecified reasons. "At the moment, I do not feel that I can give you my best," he shares. "That's why I have decided to... work on myself, so that I can deliver the 110 percent that I feel I owe you." It is not known, says the AP, whether Eddie will be on hand Monday for the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
