    The nominations came out today and there is no Van Halen on the ballot.

    Launch.com News Story

    It states in the article, "In order to qualify, an act must have made its recording debut at least 25 years before the 2003 induction year, meaning 1978 or earlier."

    I suspected they'd be passed over the first year and it's probably because (a) they can't keep lead singers, (b) the horrible rock and roll soap opera that surrounds them, and ultimately (c) that they are the laughing stock of the rock industry at this time.

    Oh, well. Maybe next year!!

    I hate to be a downer but I think it'll be quite some time before VH makes it in to the Hall of Fame.

    It's been 4 years, and Kiss (a far less superior band, but a far greater cultural impact) hasn't even been mentioned yet......

    Outside of us, the devoted VH geeks, the rest of the world really doesn't give a shit.

    Sad really.

    I don't give a shit about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's so political and full of bullshit anyway.
    Could this be magic?

    Yeah but it may be the only way we ever see all the guys who wrote this music on the same stage together again.

    At least it would serve one pragmatic purpose!

    Well, besides the Cream reunion. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'll say it with you! And as far as I know, VH is not eligible until next year. And they WILL be nominated next year.

    Maybe they wont be on the ballot until next year ? Technically, FEB of 2003 would be the 25 year anniversary.

    It may just be they are not on the ballot yet.

    They still have time to get in the media spotlight. They really need to if they expect to get any in the hall of rock fame. Not that it is a big deal imo, but they deserve to go in for sure.

    I predicted this a while ago...

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is not about to induct or even nominate a band that is "on hiatus" and in such a questionable state. If they had a singer on board (even if it was a "fourth" guy) it may have worked out...and maybe then they could have made peace for a night and jammed a tune or two with all the members (past and resent) BUT...

    Without a product to push (an album and/or a tour)all invloved have more to gain by waiting. The marketing tie-ins are too great to induct a band that is in the "mysterious" phase that VH is in.

    Had they announced a reunion with Roth or Hagar and had at least the promise of a new album and tour (and obviously a record deal!) the guys would have gotten the nod (IMO) They would have come out and jammed a classic and then the new single...and then Kid Rock or Stephen Jenkins would have jumped on stage...you get the picture.

    The Police's first album "Outlandos D'Amour" came out in 1978. So this means Van Halen is on the ballot but didn't make it.

    Doesn't surprise me one bit. I wouldn't count on VH being elected for quite awhile yet unless Roth returns.

    Well, like I said in my previous post, this is what happens when you alienate yourself. I guess we all knew this was coming.

    Maybe one day the phoenix will arise from the ashes.............. maybe........ hope I am still around to see it !

    If these guys had been kickin ass the last few years I'm sure it would have been a different story. Let's hope they get something together and come back with avengence.
