Not that it matters, because the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a joke, but Van Halen has been nominated (i.e., the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will pretend for the next few months they may or may not be nominated in order to drum up publicity for itself) with the class of 2007. Eddie Van Halen was a hero, of sorts, when I was a teenager, and I'm happy they are getting this validation. And, perhaps, the world might see them perform with Diamond Dave, once more....Fingers crossed. R.E.M. also "made the cut" (LOL) for 2007, but that's not a surprise (and was never in any doubt), and, that just makes me feel old.
Read about it.
