    Default Hall of Fame question

    I know only Mike and Sam showed up for the induction, but did Ed and/or Alex ever provide a statement or interview on the Hall of Fame induction?

    Ed was apparently in rehab but what was the reason why Alex never appeared? Same thing?

    You're never going to see Alex anywhere related to VH if Ed's not there. Alex has been sober for decades as far as anyone knows.

    I see Alex as being the quiet one, really.
    Always there with Ed, never alone. Granted Ed was also out pursuing guitar brands and stuff......but Alex seems like the guy that liked to have fun, but wasn't interested in doing it alone.

    Eddie would go to a movie alone. Alex is never going unless someone else goes, too. That kind of thing.

    He's outgoing when he's out...............but that's when he's out.

    The VH brothers are far too chickenshit to face Sam and/or Mike.

    Eddie hiding out in rehab. My ass.

    Well I think it was pretty well confirmed that he was in rehab around then, and his playing before and after that tour break in 2008 clearly reflected that. Having said that, yeah it's hard to imagine that even if they were just now being inducted this year after 11 years of sobriety and Mike and Sammy were there I still can't see the VH brothers attending anyway, so it was likely irrelevant. But maybe I'm wrong.

    Yeah, my feeling was he just did not want the hassle of seeing Sam & Mike.

    Ed avoids stuff that makes him uncomfortable.

    Eddie's Guitar God award from Spike TV more than made up for it, for me. Honestly.
    Seeing those clips from the TWO main eras of the band, and hearing the accolades? Yeah!

    OK thread boy. How about asking all these random questions over in the Random Shit thread. It might flow a little better for you in one area.

    Ed wasn't there so there was no way Alex and Dave (who had just joined the band again) were going to go. The timing sucks, but the fact that Eddie has finally gotten clean (although I don't think he was completely clean at the beginning of the 2007 tour) has saved his life and made his family's life better.

    In the end, no complaints from my end, although I remember being pissed about it at the time. There are bigger things than silly acknowledgements from an organization that was clearly trying to capitalize on the fact they had regrouped with Dave the same year.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Edward was in a facility
    Wolf and Dave were in but not announced
    Not announcing Dave yet eliminated him or another 96
    Ed was not signing out of rehab
    No ed no Alex

    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

    Imagine if 5150 had just come out & did huge sales, and VH were inducted.

    You know Ed, Al, Sam & Mike, would show up, but would Dave?

    I don't think Roth, in 1986, would pass up any opportunity to be seen on the
    big stage.

    But, man, that would be awkward & entertaining.

    I agree to a point, but Alex and DLR could have shown up. Ed being in rehab didn't make them unable to hop on a plane.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    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, it’s 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. They’re 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.
