    Default Would "Rockstar VH" hurt HOF chances?

    Do you think that if the reports are true about VH being the next band on "Rockstar" would it hurt their chances of being inducted?

    And on a side note do you think that INXS should be inducted as well at some point? For a few years they were as big as any other band out there.

    i'd like to see INXS get in the HOF. not JD though, he licks sweaty nutsack. he'd just cry like a pussy anyways.

    VH...i dunno. i can see a new project bringing them back into the public eye, but whether that translates into an HOF nomination is a tough call. the critics already dislike VH, can't see that Rock Star would make them change their minds.

    The only recognition VH will have if they make the HOF will be for the Classic Material (1978 - 1984 ?) - ROTH Era.......but since no one has called a Cease Fire, it's unlikely they'll get recognized. This is sad.

    Unless, of course, Buck Picasso auditions for the lead singer on ROCKSTAR ... then it would be HOF fo' sho.

    Dunno if it'd hurt their chances of being nominated, but if they were inducted I can't see the new guy or Cherone being entered.

    It'll be Ed, Al, Mike, Dave & Sam.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    No. Classic VH is what it is and I don't think there is anything that will really change it's position.

    Kinda funny if they do end up on Rockstar. Inxs' singer died, left them with one thing to do, get a new singer. Vh has 3 former singers still breathin and lookin for a fourth? Ah well, I'll be there watchin if it's true. It'll be nice to see'm anywhere again, just kinda wondering if Mikey's gunna be there!

    Exactly. But I voted no, because the Rock Hall is bullshit anyway. If they ever do get voted in, they should tell them to shove the award up their ass and not show up.

    I really hope this Rockstar rumor is not true.

    Eddymon, please ignore the control freaks. Soon enough this entire MAIN section is going to be Rock Star when the show airs (hopefully it will).

    I don't think it will. VH's legacy is well-established through the music. I agree tho, that it will likely be the six-pack that gets the nod (if any). I wish there was the third option that was mentioned earlier b/c I would've picked that one. But who the hell cares at this point??? They've been by-passed so many times it's an eff'n joke. VH deserves to be inducted b/c it's way overdue for them, it shouldn't matter what their status is, it's supposed to be based on the music. Who can honestly say that VH hasn't influenced a genre????? Gimme an eff'n break.

    I sure hope that this frickin RS rumor will go away SOON. It's bs.

    Rumors that are false go away...
    this one seems to stick around...
    one can only hope it happens.

    And if VH isnt in the HOF by now, there's something going on behind the political scene

    Actually, only one rumor that "stuck" turned out to be true, if your keeping count.

    For what it's worth I don't think any of this is true, and I guess in a way I hope it doesn't happen.

    Despite paying top dollar for management etc. nearly every large plan Van Halen has attempted has turned out completely different from what was intended (at least it seems that way). I think that's kinda cool, it goes with there public perosona. But this could turn into a major embarassment, plus there riding INXS's coat tales, Van Halen doesn't do that.

    Default recent trip to the RRHOF

    I was in Cleveland for business a couple months ago and went to the R&R HoF. For a VH fan, it is, as expected, very disappointing. The only VH related item there is Mikey's JD Bass, not even a striped guitar. Next to the guitar is a bio of the band which discuss the success of the 1st 6 yrs then goes on to day how successful the band became with Hagar, only a paragraph or 2. The R&R HoF completely disregards hard rock post Zeppelin. The have a section where they have exhibits by decade. When it comes to the late 70s, everything is about punk, no VH. In the 80s, you wouldn't even know hard rock existed based on their exhibit. Based on what I saw, especially considering some of the weak choices that are in, it is definitely political and VH and their genre is on the wrong side of it.

    The only hard rock act of the past 25 yrs with a mention is Bon Jovi which has an 8 foot long permanent exhibit. They'll be in before VH, no doubt about it.

    Bottom line, if you go to Cleveland for some reason and the Cavs or Indians are in town, go to the game and skip the R&R HoF.
