    Default Congratulations Van Halen!

    This topic is soley meant to be for giving props to the band for their HoF induction. The "Hall" might be a joke to many, but its still one of the highest honors bands/musicians have.


    I want to congratulate Edward, Alex, Michael, Dave and Sammy on getting inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
    You guys have brought much enjoyment to my ears for 25+ years and still counting.
    There have many highs and lows, but throughout it all you are still my alltime favorite rock and roll band.

    I hope that all of those attending tonight's ceremony can put aside any differences for just a few hours and act cordial to one another.
    I hope that if he does attend that Dave can just reach out and shake Sammy's hand and congratulate him and likewise for Sam. Without either one of them they might not be there to begin with.
    Sammy kept the Van Halen train rolling after Dave "quit" the band in 1985 and he deserves to be there as much as Dave.
    Nowadays it seems that Sammy is content on being a solo artist and wants the classic/original Van Halen lineup back together again.

    Mike was/is as instrumental to the sound of VH as either lead singer was and was one half of one of the top 5 rythym sections in rock history with Alex.

    We all know what Eddie has done and meant to us as fans in his amazing career, and now more than ever we should support him in his finally realizing the demons he has and the turmoil they have cost the band. Heres hoping that all will be well when he is once again well. Good luck Eddie.

    CHEERS TO VAN HALEN, AND CHEERS TO ALL THE VAN HALEN FANS FOR REALLY MAKING THIS DAY POSSIBLE TOO!

    I'll second the congrats...but it's a SHAME they don't appreciate it...

    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.

    Honestly, I think a sober Ed will appreciate it.

    I hope you're right. I'm STILL holding out hope that he'll be there tonight...

    Congrats boys

    There wont be too many differences at the table tonight though...mainly because Sam and Mike will be the only ones attending.

    It's been long overdue...

    It would be a huge PR move if they all showed up and stood on stage together. Even if all they did was lean into the mic and so thank you. I guess it's understandable if Ed doesn't make it though.

    Congrats boys, you made some of the best music in the history of rock!!!!

    This morning, I thought "This day is all about the music and what the boys have accomplished - so fuck all this soap opera shit!"

    I don't care who's going to be at the induction or not, I don't care who badmouthed whom in the past - tonight's all about the boys. So congrats to Ed, Dave, Sam, Mike & Al and all the best to every single one of you!

    And Ed is the nice red you wash it all down with.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    If anyone of the former or current VH camp reads this CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THEM.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.
