what your guys take on Nominees for the 2013 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
In what probably amounts to 'a little too late', rock icons DEEP PURPLE and RUSH have finally been nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It's just a shame that it couldn't have happened while former DEEP PURPLE keyboardist Jon Lord was still alive.
From Rolling Stone.com: "This year's nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are one of the most diverse lots yet. In addition to classic rock acts such as RUSH, DEEP PURPLE and PROCOL HARUM, the list also includes two seminal rap groups (Public Enemy and N.W.A.), two definitive disco hitmakers (Chic and Donna Summer) and two great blues acts (Albert King, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band). The nominees are rounded out by Motown's Marvelettes, the sister act HEART, tough-as-nails crew Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, the masterful L.A. songwriter Randy Newman, New Orleans funk architects the Meters and the pioneering German electronic group Kraftwerk."
here the list. as for me DEEP PURPLE, HEART, RUSH, Albert King, Paul Butterfield Blues Band should get in.
