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.

According to RB Facebook, Bruce Payne doesn't want Ritchie to appear at the RRHOF.

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.

Official statement by Ian Gillan below.

Quote:
With respect to all:
We were faced with a hard decision when we heard about the Hall of Fame inductions. It was shocking to us that Steve Morse and Don Airey – who have been with us for 22 years and 14 years respectively – had been excluded, according to HoF ‘rules’.
Ian G. Ian P. and Roger G. – decided upon the offer of a compromise which has been agreed with the HoF and enables us to turn up on the night.
DP Inductees will accept the awards and then the living breathing Deep Purple will perform. Inevitably, this will mean excluding Ritchie, David and Glen from the live performance, but, given the circumstances, there is no other acceptable option.
It should be stressed that there is no slight intended nor any desire to upset anyone regarding this decision; it is purely a mark of respect to Steve and Don.
I spoke with David Coverdale last week and he expressed complete understanding of the way it was being handled; thanks David you’re a Gent.
Outside of this event there are no circumstances under which a ‘reunion’ could or would take place and so it is unconscionable that our guitarist and keyboard player should be pushed aside after all those years (on the road and six studio albums) of total personal commitment and musical contribution to the band, just to satisfy pressure that has been, in the past, easily resisted.
So, let’s all get up there, shake hands, smile for the cameras and get it done with dignity and respect for all the existing and past members of a very special family.

There is one paragraph missing which Ian posted on his Caramba site in HIS offical statement:

Quote:
It should be stressed that there is no slight intended nor any desire to upset anyone regarding this decision; it is purely a mark of respect to Steve and Don. In fact, we would love to perform with Ritchie, David, Glen et al on Smoke on the Water in the encore jam.

I've seen many sources where this important sentence has been left out and I wonder why. Ian Gillan, the jackass for everything, only because somebody HAS to do the ungrateful job of the spokesman for the band?

I have never heard that Ian spoke ill of Glenn or David. This whole HOF biz makes me sick!

Glenn talks RRHOF induction night hopes...

Quote:
There's a lot of gossip and innuendo about who's saying what. I'd love to play. I'd love to sing. And so would David.

I just hope Blackmore has the balls to (attend), and for God's sake he bloody wrote those songs, he wrote those riffs. He wrote 'Smoke on the Water.' Whatever happened -- the eccentricities, the behavior, the name-calling and all that stuff -- I say let it all go. Blackmore should be there accepting his award. I'd be very upset if he didn't.
