This year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees have been announced and what a group it is: Patti Smith, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, R.E.M, the Ronettes and Van Halen (including both Diamond Dave and Sammy Hagar). All we can say is . . . oy. Considering the historical beef amongst the various members of VH, we think the producers ought to abandon the romantic notion of an all-member rendition of “Jump” and go straight for a steel-cage fight. It’ll be the best of both worlds — classic rock nostalgia meets macho WWE-style posturing and (hopefully) some blood. Reunions can be so touching, especially when the touching involves blunt trauma.
The potential smackdown is scheduled for March 12th at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City, and we are S-T-O-K-E-D. With all the warring versions of VH on display, we were kind of wondering which lineup you think is the true Hall of Fame unit. Let us know.
