Lee Roth Pulls Out Of Hall Of Fame Ceremony

Published on March 09, 2007 with No Comments

David Lee RothVan Halen star David Lee Roth will be a no show at the Rock + Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony – because he can’t perform.

The reformed Jump rockers will be added to the Cleveland, Ohio music museum on Monday but guitarist Eddie Van Halen’s upcoming rehab stint, announced yesterday has forced them to pull out of a planned performance.

Instead Velvet Revolver will perform Van Halen hits as part of a tribute at a star-studded banquet in New York.

And bitter Lee Roth reveals he won’t even be there to claim the induction honour – because he can’t perform with his bandmates.

“It rips my heart out (not to be there)… but I don’t make speeches for a living,” he says. “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… That was my three minutes and 22 seconds up there.”

But Lee Roth is still optimistic about plans for a Van Halen reunion tour once Eddie Van Halen completes rehab treatment for a reported alcohol problem: “If Ed ever dries up, this is going to be a stadium act.”
