The 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is this Friday (March 29.) Similar to last year's class, there seems to be something different about the 2019 class: There’s little to no drama surrounding the inductees.
Van Halen’s self-titled debut was released 41 years ago (February 10.) The album contains some of VH’s most-enduring tracks, from “Runnin’ With The Devil” to “Eruption.” However, upon its released, it was torn apart by Rolling Stone.
Fun fact about 1979: A ton of amazing albums came out that year! With 2019 upon us, these 17 albums will be celebrating their 40th anniversary. Honestly, they sound just as fantastic as did when they were released.
As 2018 is coming to a close, it’s looking like one of the potentially biggest stories heading into 2019 could be the reunion of the original Van Halen lineup, which means bassist Michael Anthony would be back in the fold.
