Michael Anthony and Van Halen goes in peacefully
Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, neither of whom are in what I guess you could call the "current incarnation" of Van Halen, were the only Van Halen members present for the induction, and they took the high road in their speeches, making sure to thank the absent David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and even the brief-tenured singer Gary Cherone.
Eddie, of course, couldn't be there owing to his recent entrance into rehab. Roth could have, but apparently was unhappy with the opportunity he was presented to perform. Alex, well, I don't know.
But everything went smoothly, and both Michael and Sammy seemed sincere and emotional in their gracious speeches.
