    Default Roth The Problem?

    Rock Hall denies barring David Lee Roth from performing
    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame says they're not to blame for David Lee Roth skipping Monday's (March 12th) induction ceremony for Van Halen. Last week, Roth told the Los Angeles Times that he was barred from singing with Velvet Revolver, who will perform in tribute to Van Halen at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. But that's just not the case, according to Rock Hall President and CEO Joel Peresman.

    In a statement, Peresman said, "The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is sorry that David Lee Roth will not attend this year's induction of Van Halen. We offered him opportunities to play and sing a Van Halen song of his choice with our house band, including his own guitar player, or a song with Velvet Revolver, and he refused those opportunities. We made every effort, and the decision not to come was solely his, not ours."

    The Times confirmed what us originally reported last week -- that Roth wanted to do "Jump" with Velvet Revolver, but was told there wasn't enough time to get the song down. The newspaper added that Roth was given the chance to do "You Really Got Me" with Velvet Revolver, but he refused, partly because he said it's a Kinks song and not a true Van Halen number. And on Friday, Roth was told he could do "Jump" with the house band, which is led by Late Show With David Letterman keyboardist Paul Shaffer, but he said it was too late to make travel and rehearsal arrangements.

    Last week, when Roth announced that he would skip the event, he told the Times, "I don't make speeches for a living. I sing and dance for my dinner... It's just not an option for me to go and watch some other band -- who are only performing because they have some new record coming out -- do our music. I have nothing against Velvet Revolver -- I'm not familiar with their music -- but that was my three minutes and 22 seconds up there."

    Velvet Revolver play "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" and "Runaround" at the ceremony, which will air live on VH1 Classic beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET. The band's Scott Weiland and Slash will also give induction speeches for Van Halen.

    As of now, the only Van Halen alumni who will be on hand to accept the honor are original bassist Michael Anthony, whom Eddie Van Halen fired last year, and former singer Sammy Hagar, who's done two tours of duty with the band. Eddie won't be at the Waldorf because he's in rehab, and Alex Van Halen is sticking close to the family's Southern California home base to be supportive of his brother.

    this has been covered already...

    what i don't understand is, if VR is already learning ATBL, why wouldn't they offer THAT song to dave to do live, rather than a cover of ANOTHER band with YRGM? i'm not entirely trusting the press release that the hall put out on this...

    Typical BS from the Hall.

    Its damage control because of the somewhat bad press they were receiving when news broke that Dave wasn't allowed to perform.

    Because just prior to this latest piece of garbage, Hall president gave a statement saying that they tried to have ANY incarnation of VH to perform, when that wasn't possible they tapped VR to play on VH's behalf. Nowhere did he state offering Dave any alternatives to perform.

    I don't think Roth's the problem, he can't be that stupid. Like he has many options if this half-assed reunion doesn't go thru.

    If they did offer Dave a chance to play, I am sure they made the same offer to Sammy.

    Funny how Dave says he "isn't familiar with VR's music", yet he ragged Sammy at the VMA's in 2002 for not knowing who Linkin Park was.

    Just an observation
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    Dave's smart for not going. Would look dumb with him standing up there with Sam and Mike ("the other half") when Dave is in camp with Ed and Al at this time. And why would he want to go sing a VH song with a house band? Like that would really go over well with the VH bros too. yeahhh

    Dave's in VH. VH is focusing on getting VH in good working order again. Dave's simply averting certain disaster by avoiding the stupid ceremony altogether. I think he's put his priorities in the right place... With VH the band.

    Lousy situation this all is. Dave is going to do it the right way or not at all. I don't know why Sam and Mike don't go up and jam unless they don't want to show up the guys who aren't there.

    All I can say is congrats to VH!

    Dave isn't going because he is a pussy. (afraid of Ed and Al)
    Al and Ed aren't going because they are pussies. (afraid of Mike and Sam)

    That whole letter on the internet was a PR cover-up. Ed is at home drinking the Loon and watching the VH1 Classic. Why else did he wait until right before the RockHall to do it... (low on gynelotrimin)


    I will be at the Rock Hall in a 1/2 hour throwing Brown M&M's at the screen... BTW...congrats to Mike and Sam. The only two with class in this f'n mess.

    Don't listen to him. Hurl those suckers at the screen and/or performers!

    Have a great evening and we'll watch for your review.
