    Default Time For Velvet Revolver To Step Up And Get Dave or Sammy On Stage

    Weiland and Slash should talk to someone in charge of this ceremony about getting Dave up on stage to perform. In fact, Weiland should refuse to sing the songs and force the Hall's hand to get Dave up on stage and sing with VR.

    Just read this ridiculous quote from R&R Hall Of Fame President Joel Peresman:
    "We had tried for weeks to be able to have a Van Halen performance by any incarnation of Van Halen. But when we were told that could not happen, we turned to the fantastic Velvet Revolver who we felt could best represent the spirit and music of both eras of Van Halen. It would not be fair or appropriate to represent Van Halen by just one of their members performing. We will keep a seat open for David should he change his mind."


    O.K. It's not fair to have all the members performing. But he doesn't think it's even more of an injustice to deny Dave, Sam or Mike to get up and perform? Under the circumstances, with Ed in rehab, I think you can make an exception. Do what's right and let Dave sing the damn song! And Scott Weiland and his band should back that up.

    Unless Dave wants to perform with his own band. If that's the case than he's wrong but I haven't heard or read that. My understanding is he wants to get up and sing a VH song with whoever is behind him.

    I was thinking the same thing yesterday. If VR made a stink, they would gain a lot of respect from everyone, not to mention up their "bad boy" image and make for a great story.

    Typical easy way out from a Chairman.

    All Dave has to do is make a phone call to VR's camp. They would not refuse his request. Personally, I think he comes off like a baby in all of this. "It's my 3 minutes, 22 seconds.....WAAAAAAAAHHHHH."

    You have legitimate point but that's Dave. He's always had a stubborn ego but I still think it's up to VR to do something right now.

    But they could do something if he'd simply show up to the ceremony. It's a LIVE show. If Dave could be humble enough, for two seconds, to ask them to sing and they brought him out onstage, the producers couldn't do much about it. Dave's ego is the problem.

    Think about it. You never hear reports of him jamming with anyone. EGO. Mike and Sam, on the other hand...

    let's say three out of five of an inducted band's members were dead...they'd at least let the survivors sit in with the house band.

    The thing is that Dave was flat out rejected by the Hall for his wanting to perform, without of course Ed and Al.

    I'd be pissed too. Seems like Dave was even willing to sing the song with Velvet Revolver backing him.

    But no, the Hall rejected such an idea because well....they're fucking assholes!

    Its obvious now that Ed is not in any shape to perform---yet, Dave still wanted to, so what was the big deal for him to sing ONE song? ????

    Dave has a right to be pissed off. He may come around and attend, but I don't think he will.

    We don't know any of that, do we? He certainly never said it and i didn't see it reported anywhere. I love Dave, but he's a diva. The RRHoF may have even floated the idea of VR backing him and he turned it down.

    Why should Dave have to ask to perform? Or even Mike or Sammy. If they want to, any of them should be able to go up on stage during whatever song is being played from whatever VH era, and do their thing. They're the ones being honored, not VR.

    The RnRHOF can shove the whole thing up their bureaucratic asses.
