Rainbow should be in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


Damn right they should be - look at the influence they had on all other [sign in to see URL] define a sub-music genre with Power Metal.

Who gets in?

The core:
Ritchie
Ronnie
Cozy

also consider
Glover
Bonnet
Turner - like it or not he had a big hand on crafting some great rainbow tunes: Death Alley Driver, Stone Cold, No Release, Can't Let You Go, Street of Dreams (which is one of RB's favorite songs of all time)

When the Rainbow legacy is to be honoured, Jimmy Bain, Bob Daisley, David Stone and Toney Carey must be inducted.

That's no reason not to induct him. Jon Lord was inducted posthumous as well.

Dio and Powell (mentioned by the thread opener) are dead as well.

Sorry [sign in to see URL] it was for people still alive. I'd forgotten about Jon.

Doubt Richie's going to get an invite anytime soon having snubbed the Purple induction besides which i'm sure the criteria includes having a nailed on hit in the US which Rainbow never really had (irrespective of how good they were on record and live up to 1978)

Re: Rainbow should be in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


Surely this "Rock n Roll Hall of Fame" is just the biggest load of utter drivel ever. Its totally a subjective thing, based on who's opinion exactly ? Nobody of any significance. A bunch of back-slapping nonsense that is beyond totally meaningless to everyone, including those inducted, those watching on and those not included.

Just about EVERY major 60's/70's band should be there as they ALL contributed greatly to the development of the musical genre.

Blackmore did exactly the right thing by sticking two fingers up to this cr@p an saying "no thanks" to attending.

Why does anyone give a rats sh1t who is "inducted" to this pseudo "institution"?

What it the "Rock n Roll Hall of Fame"?

Answer, a fancy museum and exhibition in Cleveland, a tourist attraction with no significance whatsoever, it's totally meaningless in every way. It's only contribution to anything, is tourists income to the local economy.

Inductees are chosen by a few individuals who are not musicians( big surprise!) and are chosen based on how likely they are to draw a crowd to the museum, in short how much cash$$$ can the tourist attraction get from YOU.............. bet that's a surprise.

So Blackmore said "No Thanks" to being a museum exhibit and very sensible he was too.

PS Rainbow shouldn't be in this fake "institution" and actually neither should anyone else unless they are getting paid to be there. It's just another way to get yet more $$$ out of music fans and has nothing to do with music and everything to do with just more business, somewhat predictably.

Agree 100%. I thought it was ridiculous how after years of slagging off the RRHOF that DP turned up to collect their award.

It was not "ridiculous" to turn up. It was in respect of all the fans around the world that wanted to see them there.
Again you are in a minority here..

That R&R HoF is somewhat of a joke is something else.
