Lars Ulrich Says Deep Purple Belongs in Rock Hall

Deep Purple

Metallica’s Lars Ulrich is pleased that Nirvana and KISS are being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but he’s troubled by the absence of another classic rock band. “I’m not gonna get into the politics or all that stuff, but I got two words to say: Deep Purple,” he said yesterday, speaking to Rolling Stone. “That's all I have to say: Deep Purple. Seriously, people, ‘Deep Purple,’ two simple words in the English language. But definitely, Nirvana is a no-brainer for the first year and I’m glad that KISS is getting the long-overdue recognition that they deserved for everything that they pioneered, and then I got two words, ‘Deep Purple!’ Did I say that already?”

Deep Purple have been eligible for induction since 1993, and have been nominated twice—in 2013, and again in 2014. The much-lauded “Mach II” version of the group featured Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Roger Glover and Ian Paice. Other members over the years have included Steve Morse, Tommy Bolin and Glenn Hughes.
