    Why were the VH boys not inducted in the Hall O' Fame?
    Van Halen came out the same year the first Police did.

    "Van Halen" came out in February 1978, they will not eligible until February 2003. BTW, The Police released a single in 1977.

    On top of that, it seems very few artists are inducted in their very first year. Unless they're universally loved and paraded around as legends, of course.

    I wouldn't look for VH to get in next year either.

    Van Halen I is legendary. It changed the way that Rock music was heard and made for over a decade. You can't tell me that Van Halen won't get into the hall their first year when the Sex Pistols did. The Sex Pistols only had one album. VH's first album was just as revolutionary as theirs IMO plus they released so much more great music after that.

    who cares??

    there's only one band that's been inducted into the hall of fame that's actually gone on to have any kind of future beyond a pissy little museum status symbol, bullshit elist tag [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img] hall of fame band...

    What are you on about? Sure the things a bit of a wank, but theres plenty of great bands been inducted. Plenty that haven't too.

    People get far too carried away by this thing. To be inducted would be an honour I guess. Fine. But it's hardly the definitive mark of a bands worth. Get some perspective.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd has been turned down five times now. Black Sabbath too. Pretty much sums up the joke that is the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

    For me the only thing that matters, would be that it might force the VH bros. to make a public appearance. Maybe even a statement about their future plans, maybe.........

    the sex pistols aren't in the rock hall. you might be getting them confused with the ramones. from what i understand ozzy osbourne has asked the people who vote to leave his name off the ballot, cause he isnt a big fan of the rock hall itself (and i cant blame him). as for VH - the curious factor will be this: are they inducted as just the original line-up and then inducted a 2nd time with Hagar? or do they all get in at once? I always assumed it would be VH would enter with both versions acknowledged, but someone on the Radio last night was talking about it and it did make me wonder.

    i personally find it kinda stupid when "The Beatles" are entered and then a few years later John Lennon is entered and Pal McCartney is entered. it's like how much ass kissing does the Hall need to do. They're in the Hall -- once is enough to honor them.

    whatever...

    How could they induct the band with Roth and Hagar separately? They're both the same band.

    I love it how people who have never actually visited the Hall of Fame can call it a joke. By the way, I'm not all that excited about a VH induction. While it is a great honor and all, I honestly don't think Eddie will even show up.

    I agree that Van Halen will get inducted based on the entire body of work over the last 25 years. The bigger questionis whether or not EVH would show up and perform with either of the singers. However, Hall of Fames in general tend to be hard to figure out: how is it that Dusty Springfield is in and Pete Rose is not?

    I'm sure all the members will be there...for instance, when the Yardbirds were inducted Beck, Page, and Clapton were on hand.
