Deep Purple (all line-ups) have been nominated for induction into the Cleveland, Ohio, USA based Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame for 2013.

Fans also have some input... you can cast your vote for them here:

As I predicted last year, Rush & Deep Purple will win it. So how about this for the concluding jam:

Rush does Tom Sawyer, Subdivisions and Spirit of the Radio, and then they get off. Deep Purple (Mk.VII) come out and do Highway Star, Hush and Lazy, with a slight member change-up for Burn, and maybe Mistreated if we're lucky. (And maybe Glenn and David can announce their "40 Years of Burn" World Tour 2013 at that time )

And then we get Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart, Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, Steve Morse, Roger Glover, Don Airey, Ian Paice, Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale all up on the stage playing "Smoke on the Water."

I can imagine him saying something along the lines of DP being a couple of band's ago in his career and what he's doing now is worthier. But that's just me on a snarky day.

It's about time DP and Heart were nominated. I'd vote for Rush, but only if Geddy Lee promised to never sing in his upper register again. I'll vote for PH.

NWA? Naw!

Well I might have been snarky, but I was also pretty accurate. How nice, I've been right twice this year.

I hope everyone can put aside their insecurities and find a way for everyone to enjoy a celebration of all that DP created, and how it only led to enabling each member to move on to whatever was next for them.

Deep Purple Hall of Fame

DP has been nominated for the first time (what took them so long) for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame enshrinment. could we finally see all surviving members on stage at the same time?, that would surely be something to witness. be sure to vote.

RB said in an interview from a few days ago that he'd spoken to Coverdale 5 days ago. Imagine how cool it would be to have DC and RB join BCC, the band changing its name to Blackmore's Country Communion.

Cool??? How many years is it that Glenn and Ritchie haven't spoken to each other? DC and Ritchie in BCC, maybe with Candice too? Thanks, but NO thanks!

In the Blackmore-Night interview, I believe RB mentioned that he doesn't even have any of the DP recordings from the day (except for the gold plated ones on a plaque). It would be a real shocker if he showed up. He just isn't interested in wasting his time in the past - unless you consider the Renaissance period past.

I'm skeptical about this whole thing with Ritchie and Coverdale talking. I think he made that up on the spot during the interview. The whole reason why the MK. III reunion never happened was because no-one could get through to that guy...and from what I know, the last encounter that these particular two had was in the 80's, which started with a snack backstage and ended with the two of them on the floor, engaged in furious battle

Ian Gillan has officially anounced that he will not accept the induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, because of the fact that Steve and Don are not included in the ceremony. Looks that he is a real friend and a rebel.

More interesting - will he show up?

In case you're on FB, why not ask 'Roderic' personally?

www.facebook.com/roderic.evans

I wonder who hides behind this account.

I would be happier if Nick Simper and Tommy Bolin had been inducted as well. Then at least the first Purple decade MK1-IV would be complete.

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.

I think it's a fault in the press statement. I believe Nick Simper will be inducted as well.

How can they stop him?

This is on his FB page:

Quote:
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame update
Ritchie was honored by the offer of induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was discussing the possibility of attending, until we received correspondence from the President of the Rock Hall of Fame, who said that Bruce Payne, management for the current Deep Purple Touring Band, had said "No"..........!!!!!"
Therefore Ritchie will not be attending the ceremony. He sincerely thanks all the fans that voted for him for their support.
