    Default Why is Alex Van Halen not attending?

    I think this deserves its separate thread.
    We know why EVH is not going.
    We know why Dave is not going.

    So why, why in hell is Alex Van Halen not going?

    No one is asking that question, and I think the answer will explain a bit more what's going on in VH land. I mean it's not like Alex can go to rehab WITH Ed, so what is he going to do, watch the ceremony on TV? I don't see how it would help Ed for Alex to NOT go. What good will it do? It's certainly not doing anything positive to the VH legacy. Alex is the first born Van Halen son, doesn't he feel any responsibility to make sure that the band bearing his family name is properly honored?

    I think apart from health issues, there are some deep psychological issues involved here. I don't think Ed's health is the only issue, even he admitted jus that in his open letter.

    I did not see this issue specifically discussed, though. Everyone treats it like something normal, "Oh Ed's not going so Al's not going." I believe Al not attending as well is significant. We must investigate!

    One might assume it's a stance of solidarity between brothers.

    And one might just wait and tune in and find out Monday night.

    All is one with the universe.

    I'm sure they will have some via satellite thing for Alex.
    If he even cares that much...he will play the sympathy card.
    Like he has to be there for eddie... if Al, Mike, Dave and Sammy are there...gee, hmmm that would be enough for a live performance. I think it's like a reverse survivor thing...nobody wants to the only one showing up.

    I hope the best for Eddie but the timing of this should be questioned by anyone who know the pathetic recent history of VH.

    Sammy has talked about his concern and hope that EVH gets help and gets it together.

    DLR has talked about his concern and hope that EVH gets help and gets it together.

    MA was loyal to EVH almost until he was dumped.

    If Alex does not show at the RRHOF it is another sign of the complete bull shit when it comes to the brothers. The fact that he cant stand up there is sad.

    I dont get why Alex wouldnt go.

    It would be super cool if Dave, Mikey, and Alex showed up and picked up the award.

    So let me get this straight.

    Ed is not going...for good reason.
    Dave is not going...because he doesn't want to see other bands play his music...that was in the job description Roth...get used to it...
    Alex is not going...WHY?

    So I guess the only two members going...are the only 2 members that are...no longer in the band anymore.

    lol... ...I'm sorry...that is funny...

    Maybe by Eddie coming out and saying that he is or allready has entered rehab, then Alex will show up on both his and Ed's behalf. That way all the questions as to why Eddie isn't there are allready known and that won't take away from the celebration of the night for Alex.

    I hope that they (Alex, Dave, Mike AND Sam) can go onstage and accept the honor and wish Ed well as a group. I think Ed's admission could make that happen afterall, playing now is totally irrevalent, let VR or whoever do it for them.

    Go Eddie!

    Sammy Dave & Mike should accept if the VH trio is all partied out.

    Has Alex released a statement? What about Wolfgang, anyone seen him either?

    Maybe they had so much fun jamming they all 3 are relaxing in rubber rooms?

    No disrespect guys, but the HOF only happens once, and VH is MIA? prop Ed up on some medication...4 seconds.. wow, thanks!

    ..this is sad, but whatever..
