I am very happy for Rush & Heart and I called it on Public Enemy, but damn it DEEP PURPLE should have gotten in.

wouldn't that be like inducting Pete Best with the Beatles?

Still no Deep Purple, still a joke.

Ritchie Blackmore's comments probably didn't help ...

"Personally, I couldn't care less. I would never go. I'm not really a fan of that stuff. Considering some of the people that are in the Hall of Fame, I'm not sure if it's a good idea, so I don't care one way or the other, actually."

Deep Purple should be in, but they were close. I was happy they were even in the running this year, and doubt they'll drop off the list. It all comes down to how everyone voted this year.

Blackmore will prob. snub the Rock Hall anyway. Just the comments Candice Night was making about Axl snubbing the Rock Hall, but he's one of those weird dudes that'll just go at the last minute, if they're not touring. I could see Blackmore's Night on the road thousands of miles away anyway.

About fucking time for Rush!!!

Again, singer/songwriter should be a separate category, don't agree with Randy Newman's induction as performer.

fame doesnt have anyting to do with it bacardi if that is true why has it taken rush so long to get in? or how about deep purple.

"One of the Foundation’s many functions is to recognize the contributions of those who have had a significant impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of rock and roll by inducting them into the Hall of Fame"

maiden,purple, priest have done that and were doing it before metallica. megadeth and slayer should also get in if metallica gets in

the thing about metallica is, they're probably getting in based mainly on the black album, as it was their most commercially successful album. Megadeth and Slayer (especially) never really did anything like that. I do agree that Maiden, Purple and Priest should be in though.
