Velvet Revolver To Stand In For Van Halen

LATEST: VELVET REVOLVER will take VAN HALEN's place at the upcoming Rock And Roll Hall of Fame ceremony after the JUMP group decided not to perform at the event. Van Halen will be inducted into the Hall Of Fame later this month (MAR07) but won't be reforming for the honour, despite reports they would. The group's reunion plans have been put on hold after a summer tour with original frontman DAVID LEE ROTH was indefinitely postponed. And so Velvet Revolver frontman SCOTT WEILAND and guitarist SLASH, who will induct the group into Cleveland, Ohio's Hall Of Fame, will also perform a tribute to the supergroup. It is still uncertain whether any member of Van Halen will attend the induction festivities on 12 March (07) in New York City.

This is SO f**ked up. VanHalen cannot be "replaced" by anyone. Period. Velvet Revolver is going to be performing INSTEAD OF Van Halen is what should have been said. As for VH postponing their tour, well whatever. Ya know, I don't look for them to perform again anytime in my lifetime. They keep getting our panties wet about a tour and then they pull out. s**t man, make a f**king decision and stick to it. Don't be a bunch of pussies - **cough, cough** David Lee Roth **cough, cough**

Well, the first person whom wrote the first comment (Missy) hit the hammer on the head, Eddie and Alex get you fired up and then the big let down. If it were up to Michael and Sammy or even David they would do what's right for the long time fans of Van Halen and put on a show!!! Come on ED and Alex! Either get on the pot and do it or just get off and stay off, enough! We Van Halen fans dont deserve this treatment. Sammy said it once, "Eddie is not user friendly". I am begining to believe it's true,what a spoiled Indo.
