    In his opinion the biggest stumbling block for the ceremony would be Ed & Dave as opposed to Ed & Sam ! Interesting ....

    You know what, I honestly feel that this will all turn out great. It's a big deal and everyone involved knows it. Backstage will be strained im sure but I don't think we will know anything about it.

    Hopefully everyone can take the same attitude that Sammy has about the whole thing. He seems to have much respect for Dave and Ed and he's supplying Cabo for the show...

    That was a really cool interview. Sam sure does have his head screwed on straight - based on what he said there.

    Thanks for posting that.

    Absolutely! At least Sammy has pretty made it pretty clear about what he would like to see happen.

    Hope that someone gets a few words out of the Van Halen boys to see what their stand on the whole situation is.

    Good stuff.

    I hope there are a lot of interviews between now and the ceremony, but I get the feeling Sam's the only one talking.

    The whole VH soap opera is tough to take on so many levels, but this is a fascinating situation.

    I can't wait to see what happens.

    Sam's being the bigger man here. He's never given so much praise to Dave in an interview. He's basically making all the other guys look like a bunch of 10 year old punks running around the playground.

    The guy understands the moment and is being a stand-up guy about the whole thing. Something we haven't witnessed from these guys in years. Props to Sam!

    That was a good read, Sammy took the high road and hopefully the others will follow. I'm sure that it bothers him that in every story that's come out since yesterday, the soap opera, bad blood angle has almost taken center stage. Do these guys want to be remembered for great music or B.S.?

    Incidentally, I was surprised to hear him say the biggest problem was between Ed and Dave. I always thought scuttlebutt had it that Al hated him most and a few years ago Mike went on record as saying he probably had the biggest beef with Dave. Compared to Dave and Mike, and Dave and Al, I thought Ed and Dave got on ok. Maybe not.

    Good on Sam, Diplomacy,
    I'm not so sure he's seen the Dave some of us has seen since the S & D Tour, better yet, since the radio gig. Since the radio thing, he seems to have been SUBSTANTIALLY "grounded", matured, whatever. I've always dug this band, and forgive my Yogi Berra numbers, but if I had to to "choose sides", Id say "90% percent Dave-era and the other half (no pun) I liked Sam-era". So I'm not a "graver", and I think Sam did a hell of a lot of great things with Van Halen. I also honestly believe that MTV thing on the Sam & Dave tour that's available on Youtube was predominantly "staged", and these guys were at least "somewhat" civil. The jamming with Mike denial with Roth was prolly either Dave's comfort level with his band (which would also explain jamming with Sam or anybody else) or Mike's loyalty to Sam. Who knows; to quote Diedrich Bader in Office Space, "I don't know man, I'm just talkin out of my ass", LMAO...... Any-who, to see all 5 of these guys jam, ONE TIME (besides "one last time") would be CAKE. If it turns into 3/4 CVH after that, ok. Resigned to it. Just don't fail us, let it happen for the masses that made this happen, Ed!!!!

    It might be 44 million worldwide.

    Most stats only have the # sold in the US.

    Funny how to some people Sammy can do no right and Dave can do no wrong and others Sammy can do no wrong and Dave can do no right.

    Sam bein' Sam.

    I hope when after his set is done @ the induction (if it even goes down that way) he sets down the mic, waves in appreciation, and walks out the door never to speak to Edward Van Halen again. Maybe Mikey will follow.

    My wild VH oats are sewed, so i couldn't care less. One last VH video to burn. You can do it Sam, you can do it!!!!
