The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame beckons, but don’t count on Ritchie Blackmore being there if Deep Purple is chosen to be one of its 2013 inductees.


“Personally, I couldn’t care less,” the guitarist tells Billboard. “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.”

Deep Purple is one of 15 nominees on the Rock Hall’s final ballot, and Blackmore does acknowledge that the nod has been a long time coming.


“I think our fans seem to care more than I do,” he notes. “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.” READ MORE
