    Does anyone know if there is some kind of rule about when a band can be elected? If there is, then Van Halen should get voted in the first year they're eligible.

    The minute Eruption ended in 1978, Van Halen should have been eligable for the rock and roll hall of fame.

    Anyone agree????

    Glenn, I hate to say this, but I totally disagree with you.

    They should have entered EVH in the HOF on his DOB!!

    While your math is correct, there is unfortunately a small technicality here. The Hall Of Fame nominations take place in the fall (November, I believe) with the awards ceremony in February. So technically, Van HALEN can't be nominated until 2003, which would put them in the 2004 ceremony.

    Since Van HALEN's impact on music was immediate, I have no doubt that they will be voted in on the first try.

    (Thank God they weren't eligible in the summer of 98 or that might have been a different story)

    Van HALEN is: Dave, Eddie, Mikey, Alex. Any questions?
