Ritchie Blackmore not attending Deep Purple Induction
It’s sad to hear after decades a group of guys who wrote and performed some of the best rock and roll tunes in the 60’s can’t get it together. One night! Just one night is all we ask! After 20 plus years it would be a dream to see Blackmore share the stage with DP for one last hurrah.
Ritchie gets inducted into the Rock and Roll HOF! However…
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.
