    David Lee Roth Snubs Rock Hall Of Fame

    Van Halen is one of the biggest rock acts of all time, due in no small part to the larger-than-life voice and presence of singer Diamond David Lee Roth. Van Halen is set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 12, but Mr. Roth has concluded that while this is great for his band, itís just not enough about him.

    As NME reports, the failed radio personality has said that he will not attend the induction ceremony because he wasn't permitted to perform his own songs. I guess Weiland and the boys from supergroup Velvet Revolver paying tribute to Van Halen would not suffice?

    Roth attempted to rationalize his stance, saying in a statement: "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." The tool continued, " I have nothing against Velvet Revolver--I'm not familiar with their music--but that was my three minutes and 22 seconds up there."

    Oh David, this was your day to recline and bask in the glow of all your musical accomplishments. Theyíre celebrating you for singing and dancing for your dinner so well through the years, and all you had to do was shut up and eat your dessert.

    Only the band's visionary, guitarist Eddie Van Halen, has an acceptable excuse for truancy: getting better in rehab. As it stands now, bassist Michael Anthony will be the only original member in attendance.

    The Hall's president and CEO, Joel Pressman, said in a message: "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."

    What a snarky old article.

    I guess it was only fitting that the only two guys who showed up weren't even in the band anymore.

    Van Halen, putting the fun in dysfunctional since at least 1985.

    Cmon, Dave, there is NO WAY Alex wouldve shown up without Ed. I wouldn't have either if I was him.

    They did a lot of interviews together back then so it’s possible.

    Yeah, in the early 80s, when they were all young and crazy, Dave and Al were the mouth pieces of the band. But, by 2007, and with the shape Ed had fallen into I dont see any possible scenario where Alex would go to some awards show without his brother.

    The way this all could have been avoided would have been for them to be inducted when they should have been which was the early to mid 90s before Sam was out of the band.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Well, Dave decided not to show up when they insisted that some shit band perform Van Halen songs and not allow him to do Jump.

    Those versions of ATBL and Runaround were fucking horrible. Hell, even brettify could probably play them as well as what was presented that night.

    IIRC, you cant be inducted until your first release is 25 yrs old. So, 2003 wouldve been the first year of eligibility for VH.

    It looked like those asshats had not practiced either of those songs even once. LMAO, "guitar god" Slash couldnt even play the ATBL riff correctly. Runaround sounded more like a crap version of Aerosmith's Round And Round from Toys In The Attic.

    It went the only way it could. In fairness the band screws up a lot but they had no say on the timing of this event. Given the facts ALL unrelated to any former members there was no way it could be different. What leave rehab make some rushed announcement all to make a TV awards ceremony?
    yeah cause we all saw in 04 the result of fuck rehab. The band did the right thing given the facts they can control. It sucks but is what it is

    No, he wasnít.

    He didnít attend because he didnít want to see Sam and Mike. Dave protested strongly, but ultimately decided offending the primadonna by going without Eddie wasnít worth potentially losing his job.

    Agreed. Their presentation speech was also not worthy of VH, it was about as bad as the performance. Sounded like 8th graders made to give a book report on something they didn't care about.

    Shut your pie hole, racist. Follow the mod directives.

    Iíll post whatever I want about Van Halen and you still have to ignore it. Just like I do you. Itís easy for us adults. Maybe not kiddies like you. Learn.
