Would you invite someone who sued you to your own family party? Probably not, why do you expect band would be happy to invite someone who made legal action against them to guest with them? I mean - the problem is mainly on RITCHIE´s side - that he is still acting like "enemy" towards present band - which is proven by his legal action in 2013, his very negative statements towards Jon Lord´s Tribute concert and later by his comments about RRHOF (I find it shocking that after those two previous events he expects to be "welcomed" as good buddy of others or what????).



Everyone in life has times when they argue and fall out with those closest to them ,be it family or close friends .One of the great things in life though is that if were lucky we get the chance to make amends and forgive and forget.I just think that given their advanced years ,lets face it they dont have many good years left on this planet before old age really takes a grip ,that it would have been nice to see the guys who made the legend perform one last time.David Coverdale seems to have reached that stage in his life where he is reaching out to past bandmates and trying to heal the rifts sadly it seems Gillan never will.Who cares really ?



As you go through life you would hope that eventually there is some sort of maturing that happens. My eldest daughter got married and I walked her down the aisle and sat on the top table that included my ex wife. Sometimes you have to think of and do what is best for the occasion, extended family and friends.
IG is well into his 70's but seems unable to move on. It is not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it would have been nice for the fans.
Didn't KISS reunite the original line up for the RRHOF presentation after the problems they had in the past?



You say Ian Gillan is unable to move on, ok sure. What about Ritchie Blackmore, is he "able to move on"?
Honestly? Where was he for the Jon Lord Tribute? Or for the other occations when dp have been honoured? Please tell us.



He seems more willing to move on, but of course I am not 100% sure of this as I am simply a DP fan who looks on from afar. I am not friends with any member of the band and cannot give you "facts". Whether RB actually had any intention of turning up, again that is something I will never know.
I agree that he should have been at the JL Tribute, 100%....edit..but maybe he was made to feel like he wasn't wanted there?
As for other occasions where DP have been honoured, I am unaware of who turned up to any of them as they don't reall mean much to me. I just thought a one off (or one song) performance with everyone involved would have been a nice thing to happen. My honest opinion is that adults in their 70's acting like children over things that happened 30+ years ago isn't a very good look.



He is so much willing to move on after 20 years since his departure from the band, that he attacked them legally…. You still try to ignore this elephant in the house - Ritchie still acts like ENEMY to current band and then you say "maybe he felt not welcomed"??? This is just NUTS.



He was criticised for not attending the JL Tribute. I simply stated maybe he wasn't welcome, or maybe he had no intention of attending, I don't know.
Many other band's have performed one song at the RRHOF after many years of bitterness, I just think it would have been nice. Maybe not good, but a line drawn under everything.
As others have said, maybe RB had no intention of turning up at all.

We don't know who of the musicians is willing to move on how much, but we do know that the debates at this board don't move on at all. It's still the same battle about things which are years ago.

With the exception of River Deep Mountain High I agree.

I don't mind that song once it gets going proper after Rod stops singing about a rag doll. During RB's solo (where he sounds like he's bending his notes to stay in time) Nick's bass really thumps along. To me, The Shield is the stand out track on TBOT.
