DEEP PURPLE CO-FOUNDER HAS NO INTEREST IN ROCK HALL OF FAME

10/12/2012

Add Deep Purple co-founder Ritchie Blackmore to the list of rockers who have no interest in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

According to Billboard, the guitarist, who left Deep Purple for the final time back in 1993 and now performs with girlfriend Candice Night in the folk duo, Blackmore's Night, said of the Rock Hall: "Personally, I couldn't care less. I would never go. I'm not really a fan of that stuff. Considering some of the people that are in the Hall of Fame, I'm not sure if it's a good idea, so I don't care one way or the other, actually.. . . I think our fans seem to care more than I do. They're always saying, 'You should be in the Hall of Fame. You should be in this, you should be in that. . .' If I can pay the bills, that's all I care about."
