Great but short new interview with Blackmore here
that made me laugh out loud.
UGO: Ritchie, would you consider playing with Purple one last time if the band was voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
RITCHIE BLACKMORE: I wouldn't consider playing with them although I haven't really thought about it. As far as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame goes there are too many people that have been voted in there that have absolutely nothing to do with Rock and Roll for it to mean anything to me. Besides it's too pretentious.
