It doesn't make sense to me but let's face it, it's a business enterprise which was set up by a record label boss with the editor of Rolling Stone plus some attorney and record exec friends.

Simper and Evans played on the same 3 albums and both had writing credits on various songs.

Also, the inductees are expected to perform. Blackmore wont turn up and Morse isn't invited so Glenn will have to play lead guitar and Roger bass! There's also no-one to play keyboards with Don Airey excluded.

You could argue that Don Airey should be inducted in his own right after his work with other bands - Cozy Powell, Rainbow, Schenker, Ozzy, Gary Moore, Sabbath, Judas Priest plus of course 3 albums with Purple.
