    Default Edward Van Halen Plaque Unveiled in Pasadena Monday October 11

    https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/ed...led-on-monday/

    Apparently, the family's not coming. And the ceremony is NOT opened to the public. To me, "just" a plaque is totally underwhelming, but I must say I'm not surprised, Pasadena's acknowledgement of VH has been weak for a long time. The rebirth of Pasadena in the late 90s was built around the concept of Pasadena being super clean and safe, with no bars and no nightlife. Practically a dry town. It has changed a bit recently, but without constant pressure from VH fans, the proper tribute won't happen.
    For example, I can't for the life of me understand why Las Lunas has not already been renamed Van Halen street. It's not like the family of Mr Lunas is going to complain. It means "the moons" in Spanish. Likewise, a museum and a statue won't happen if the fans don't demand it.

    Van Halens gonna roll like Van Halens roll....

    The public is not invited to the ceremony due to coronavirus protocols. The musician's family will also not be present due to scheduling conflicts, officials said.

    I'll definitely check this out when I'm out there next. Also want to see that Ed mural at the Guitar Center in Hollywood.

    I can only compare this to if Hamilton, Ontario was putting up a plaque for Neil Peart somewhere.


    I can almost guarantee Geddy and Alex would fuckiní be there.

    The Peart family is involved in the statue project over there.
    Maybe if it was a bigger thing AVH would show up. If the street you grew up on is renamed after you, come on, you gotta show up.
    Statues of Freddie Mercury, Phil Lynott, Bon Scott have already been unveiled, so it would make perfect sense to have an EVH statue.

    It's simply not how the Van Halen's roll.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box
