    Default Who deserves to be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame as "Van Halen"??

    Who should be inducted? The original band? Should the Ched Rocker be included because of "commercial success" regardless of the (lack of) artistic merit? Should Cherone be included just to be nice?

    Where do you stand?

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    Cherone should be included but not to be nice. He was a member of the band and hence should be there.

    If one wants to argue that VH3 had nothing to do with them being there, that's fine. But News Flash, VH would have probably gotten in if the whole band died in 1979 and definately if they stopped recording in 1984. It's with the classic 4 or all of them. I say all 6.

    Hi Ford.

    IMO, Van Halen is the original four. Period.

    Sammy should get inducted for the heaviest songs Van Halen ever recorded, namely "Good Enough," "Get Up" and "Seventh Seal."

    There's not even one drop of cheese in these 3.

    Sammy did more than just "cheese ballads" with Van Halen. He did some decent rockers too.

    Sorry FORD, as much as I prefer the original Van Halen line-up, there is no doubt in my mind that if VH is inducted it should be Ed, Al, Mike, Dave & Sam.

    Gary didn't do enough with VH to warrant being inducted.

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

    Eh, it will end up being Dave, Ed and Al attending the ceremony. Maybe Mike for the one night but if the reunion's in full effect and ready to kick off, Ed ain't gonna want the "little red worm" there to rain on the celebratory parade.

    Max, your posts are always top notch & you speak from the heart where VH is concerned. I truly respect where your coming from, but if the band is inducted I simply can't see how they can leave Sam out. In that case, I think Sam would be there whether Ed likes it or not.
