    He's gonna get in next year as a member of VH, or whenever they get in someday. I don't think he's that worthy as a solo artist myself.

    I would tend to agree that he's questionable as a solo artist. But, then again, I'm sure there are less deserving artists who are in. I think he's borderline. He's had hits in, what, 3 different decades? Yes, he's somewhat fading now, but he's been doing it successfully for a long, long time.

    As a solo artist, Sam doesn't have a chance. I'm not slammin him but look at the facts. The Hall is about how influential the artist is or was. Montrose didn't do anything earth shattering nor did Sammy. Sure Sammy had some hits, actually only one really. But it's not about how many albums or tickets you sold. If that were the case, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Spice Girls etc. etc. will all have a shot. Sammy may get in with VH and even if he does, it will be on the coat tails of the original four.

    As solo artists, both Sam & Dave wouldn't make the Hall of Fame.
    But Eddie would. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Yeah...

    I've known about it for some time now. I was going to post it here but decided not to simply because of all the negativity that it would probably stir.

    I chimed in at sig #710. I always figured he deserved to be inducted for three reasons.

    1) Talent.
    Very few people in rock have the "triple threat" of singer, writer, guitarist, as Sammy does.

    2) Earmark.

    Sammy has had three solid landmarks in rock. One with Montrose. His solo career. Most of all, Van Halen.

    3) Longevity.
    Few artist has lasted as long as Sammy. Albeit, his tenure of recnt years has faded, everey year of his career was better that the last.

    I doubt if he actuaslly makes it on his solo career. The RaR HoF is a joke anyway. Anyone who would induct Grand Funk Railroad (among VERY many others)but leave out...GOD so many...is fucked to begin with!

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    Neither Sam nor Dave are ever getting in to the RNRHOF as solo artists.

    Sam will be inducted with Van Halen in 200?. As a solo artist, Sammy is good but I don't think he's hall of fame worthy. He does have longevity as stated earlier but he wasn't a 'solo sensation' like Michael Jackson. His solo work sold millions.
