Do people really give a shit about Deep Purple in the US? I mean, really?

A RNRHOF in this country woulf have them in, for sure. But are they really that big over there?

Anyway, the RNRHOF is irrelevant until Waylon Jennings, Stevie Ray Vaughan, KISS, Rush, Iron Maiden, Frank Marino, Journey, Willie Nelson and Alice Cooper are in it.

I hear Deep Purple songs on the radio all the time, and it's rarely Smoke On The Water.

I 100% agree about Stevie Ray Vaughan, although it's only the third year of eligibility for him. Rush not even getting nominated is a fucking joke; they've been eligible since '99. Maiden has only been eligible since '05 and while I do think they'll get in eventually, it probably won't be for a while. I honestly think Rush, Deep Purple and even Judas Priest will get in before Maiden does.

And Journey should just get a "best band ever" award.

Eddie Trunk certainly does.

Addendum: Holy shit, Willie Nelson actually isn't in the HOF! I mean, I don't give two shits about him but that surprises me.

I would say its between Alice Cooper and The Beastie Boys to get in, for some reason I would be surprised if both got it. Bon Jovi, is going to get in there at some point, as is Neil Diamond. Not that I care, whatever the bands are rated on, its not talent on their instruments or record sales, possibly influence, but again Rush and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

That kind of makes me wonder what the hell makes an artist "worthy" of the almighty Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Rush is third all time in the US with the most consecutive gold/platinum records behind the Beatles and The Rolling Stones and if that alone doesn't get you in I don't know what the fuck does Their last studio album to go gold was Test For Echo but still their album sales are respectable. The Rush In Rio live album went gold and I know Vapor Trails has sold something like 350,000 copies. S&A has sold over 200,000 so it's not like their popularity has completely tanked and they're only selling a few thousand copies each of their albums since they came back in 2002.

I'm very surprised but glad to see Alice Cooper on the list of nominees, a list btw where I only know like four names but still he's a finalists and it's long overdue for both him and Rush. Fuck record sales, just for the influence they've had on the rock and metal genres they both should be in.

Holy shit, I just read this quote from Gene Simmons (emphasis mine):

Quote:
"There's nobody in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- in fact, if you took all of them and put them together -- they couldn't match all the licensing and merchandising we've done and the legacy we've left."
I hope they never get in.

Kiss should definitely be in (anyone who doesn't recognize their worth is a fool), but Gene should be banned from the ceremony as retribution for the stupid shit he's said and done over the years.

It doesn't surprise me. He deserves to be in, but I'd still put Jennings, Vaughan and Marino in first.

You'd put two midcard guitar virtuosos in over a country icon?
