    RRHOF is equally trashed around here... for everything they do. History is a mystery.

    He cried... on national TV... begging for his inclusion in the induction ceremony... over Mike even. Sam sobbed that Mike did nothing as good as himself!

    There is VCR tape from C-SPAN II.

    Van Halen was getting inducted. Sam and Dave were the singers.

    Sam didn’t whine to be included.

    Gene Simmons might have whined.

    The RRHOF was originally only going to do the original band. Sam made a stink about it and the hall changed their minds. Thought this was common knowledge. I think it has been discussed on here.

    That's exactly what happened and then there was this gracious gem of a quote by Sam.

    "Sammy Hagar had the following to say about whether Gary Cherone should be part of the Hall of Fame induction: "I got nothing against Gary, but I would've voted against him getting in. I think he was really just a moment in Van Halen. Dave [Lee Roth] and I were in the band for so long, and we sold so many records and I don't think you can deny that. As it stands, it seems a little goofy if you let Gary in. Because, there was questions about me getting in, because I've only been in the band 21 years."

    Those "questions" about him getting in were that only the OG would go in but you know Sam...

    Sam was right on this if that's what happened.

    I think Azoff got involved on Sam's behalf too if I recall correctly. Sam alone couldn't change their mind.

    I never knew about Sam complaining but honestly if the RRHOF was only going to put in the original VH, then I really can't blame Sammy for being upset. Like him or not, he sold a lot of records with VH and they a heck of a run with him at the front.

    Can you imagine if it was only going to be classic VH? Was Mike going to be the only one there to accept the honor and give a speech? It was bad enough that only Sammy and Mike were there. That could have been such a cool night and it sucked for so many reasons.

    I'm a DLR guy, but that is crazy, Sam's a RNRHOFer (even though the Hall is a joke), I mean c'mon.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yeah, I think it was Azoff who convinced them in the end.
