Exploring Van Halen's Wikipedia Entry

So ... Van Halen's Wikipedia page is way interesting. I've never been a huge fan of the VH, but damn if they don't have an interesting story with all the internal conflict. I was reminded of such a fact, while watching their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week. Due to Eddie's entrance into rehab and some more infighting, only two of the inducted members showed up - ousted original bassist Michael Anthony and twice-ousted frontman Sammy Hagar. That's not awkard ... at all. Anyhow, I found that Anthony is a really classy dude. Why do you ask? Well he was totally kicked out sometime in the past couple years ... and replaced by Eddie's 15-year old son, but was all like, wishing Eddie the best and saying he loved him. Then he like, thanked Gerry Cherone, the forgotten third ousted frontman. Seriously, that's class. Anyways, the story of Van Halen is like a pretty awesome rock and roll soap opera ... lots of drama with the same recurring characters coming back.
