    So VH is eligible for next year. we'll see what happens. what i'm trying to figure out, and maybe some of you guys/girls can help....besides artists already eligible (i.e. Black Sabbath) who else has the possibility of entering with VH next year (if they get in):

    I can think of The Cars, Sex Pistols, I think maybe Blondie, too...who else?
    some stuff I drew and/or filmed:

    No, and they probably never will be. They never get the credit they deserve. But,back to the VH topic: when they get inducted, do you think it will be with Dave, Sam, or both? p.s.- if the Police can bury the hatchet and play together so can The mighty Van Halen.
    Man, all I can do is make music and put it out, and if people like it, they like it, and if they don't, they will sooner or later.- EVH

    I respect your opinion but you're flat out wrong.

    I think it will be both Sam and Dave that get in. If Timothy B. Schmidt is in the hall then certainly Sammy will get in.

    I thought the rule was "25 years after the release of the act's first album" for consideration . . . perhaps the Hall committee figured one metal band (AC/DC) was enough for one year.

    Bet if they had had a triumphant reunion with Roth in 1996 they wouldn't have been slighted like this. Pitiful.
    The Clash debuted before 78'. I believe the Police did as well(maybe 77'). And AC/DC formed and debuted back like in 1974.

    You become eligible in your 25th year. VH debuted in early 1978. So they become eligible for induction this year.
    The voting goes down in the fall.

    I dont think VH needed a damn reunion. What they accomplished in their time more than merits induction.
    Simply put- How many bands came out and changed the face of rock music & guitar? There aint many.
    VH did.

    Notice how bands like the Clash & the Police had pretty short careers. Both bands lasted only like 5 or 6 years after debuting! But their impact was important enough. If VH had broken up after just those 7 years with Dave I still believe their impact and talent was more than enough.

    Yeah but it was Sting who decided to disband The Police after an abortive effort at recording a follow up to the classic Synchronicity album in 1986, all they managed was a re-recorded version of Don't Stand So Close To Me for the first greatest hits package. As with EVH and Dave, the tension between Sting and Stewart Copeland just wouldn't allow them to work. What a shame, as good as some of Sting's solo material has been - it doesn't hold candle to The Police. Sting and Stewart, at each others throats - Eddie and Dave - at each others throats, why is it the best music always seems to come from these sorts collaborations?

    Not till 2006/7. 'Boy' was released in Nov 1980. add 25 years to that and your next induction ceremony is in 2006. Maybe 2007 by the time they go through the selection nomination and selection process

    It was a single/EP. Did it have A US release? I don't think it did. Not sure that's enough.
