I just finished this book after reading it on and off for a few days. I'm glad I read it; Crazy from the Heat on the whole was worth a read. It did have a tendency to fluctuate in how interesting it was though--quite interesting at times, at other times just okay. David Lee Roth no doubt has had an experience-filled life and has much to tell. I was most interested when he talked of his career and times with Van Halen; his trips to places around the world was also cool to read about. I noticed how the writing and grammar wasn't quite proper, but it's got to have been written like that on purpose--whether it's informal writing or not, it added to the story. I think that I was always unclear about the circumstances of why he left Van Halen, but this book cleared that mystery up. Diamond Dave unquestionably is a free-spirited person that's not scared to take chances in life and that's great. This wasn't one of the best books I've read, but it wasn't bad either.
