More Flippin' Van Halen Drama

David Lee Roth will not be at the Van Halen Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction on Monday because the lead singer was specifically banned from performing at the event. Event organizers hired Velvet Revolver instead of Diamond Dave to rock the VH tunes. The Diamond One is pissed:

“I don’t make speeches for a living; I sing and dance for my dinner.” This “rips my heart out. So it appears this is a television producer’s decision.

“It’s just not an option for me to go and watch some other band — who are only performing because they have some new record coming out — do our music. I have nothing against Velvet Revolver — I’m not familiar with their music — but that was my 3 minutes and 22 seconds up there."

On Eddie Van Halen's rehab journey, Roth says:

“Ed is indisposed and working toward a better future here. If Ed ever dries up, this is going to be a stadium act, man.”
