    Default Joint statement by Ed, Al, & Dave

    Sorry if this was posted already. I was over at classicrockrevisited.com and saw this. I guess this pretty much confirms that Mike is out if these three are making a joint statement. Not that this is a shock to anyone here. I was just surprised to see that the three of them were supposedly in on this. What a bummer....

    EDDIE & ALEX VAN HALEN & DAVID LEE ROTH COMMENT ON ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION

    (Los Angeles) On Monday, the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame announced that Van Halen are among the artists being inducted in 2007.

    It is an honor and a privilege and we would like to thank the fans and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame committee, Eddie and Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth said in a joint statement.

    The ceremony for 2007 inductees will take place on March 12, 2007 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    I can't even have an opinion on ANYTHING anymore unless it's exactly what everyone else thinks...oh and if I do it means I HATE this album, and hope it fails. Man some of you can fuck off...seriously. - BRETT

    That's the quote that was attributed to Dave solely. If that really is a joint statement, I don't know why they don't fill in a little more.

    Dated Jan 10? Wow, this "joint statement" has received zero publicity and has been out for two days already, if it's even authentic. The individual comments/interviews got much more attention from the media.

    Hmmm... donno about the VH's publicity machine. Their publicist must've worked in porn before, or something.

    Oh that's right, she did...

    Read the second line of the first post.....
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    DAVID LEE ROTH ISSUES LOW-KEY STATEMENT ON VAN HALEN ROCK HALL INDUCTION
    The normally outrageous David Lee Roth is staying decidedly low-key regarding this week's announcement that Van Halen will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Instead of some classic "Diamond Dave" quotes, Roth has issued a very simple statement that reads, "It is an honor and a privilege to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame." The singer did tell us a few years back that the band's musical legacy had earned them a spot in the Hall: "That music is a part of American culture, beyond just a stack of tunes. It represents a whole lot to a lot of people, and I'd be one of the very first to sign up (to appear at the band's Rock Hall induction)."

    There have been a lot of rumors that Roth is back in Van Halen for a summer tour, though nothing's been confirmed yet.

    Van Halen will be joined by R.E.M., Patti Smith, the Ronettes, and Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five at the annual Rock Hall ceremony, which takes place March 12th at New York City's Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

    Why did no one else get this statement, though. I think we shouldn't jump to conclusion that it's legit until we know where CRR got it.

    If this were legit, then this wouldn't be the first time we would have heard about it, it would have made bigger headlines.

    It does seem that the Sisters signed on to the statement that Dave had already released. It is curious that this happens on the same day that $tarks locks up van-halen.com

    As Fernando would say........ ?

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!
