  • 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." :D

  • how many people think richie blackmoore will attend ?-thats the ony question i have



    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!

  • 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.

    so light a candle in the window.......
    i will be coming home tonite

  • I wish the band had been nominated last year when it became known that Lordy was fighting cancer. He would have been pleased about the honour. Now it's too late! :mad:

    Lioness, 'the hall' has a 'knack' for that......when the Dave Clark Five were 'inducted'....members Denis Payton and Mike Smith had both passed away... :confused:

    Isn't this (partly) the reason why it has achieved the nickname 'Hall of Shame'? :rolleyes: ;)

  • exactly what i thought he would say-now i have to wonder who will be on stage and who will try to exclude who :huh:

    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.

  • maybe Jimmy & Jeff could change his mind about it.

  • I don't think that Glenn has said anything about this publicly yet. We've heard from Mk. VIII, Ritchie and even Coverdale, but I don't remember any tweets or anything at all from Glenn.

    Interesting.
