Speech, ceremony,...

So sad Rod and Ritchie didn't make it to the ceremony. Nice to see Ian G., DC, GH gently chating together...

I love them all!

I read the speeches online. IG mentioned all the folks who weren't inducted: Simper, Bolin, JLT, Satriani, and of course, Morse and Airey. They all gave fine speeches.

It´s pity that the speeches are badly transcribed by Rollingstone... emoticon IG mentioned Rod Evans (who is missing in transcription), the one of his closing sentences was about thanking to FANS, not friends (as written in transcription)... and "Hendricks" and "Richie" in Coverdale´s speech are gems itself. I´m not even talking about Roger´s thanks to his daughter Gillian - who was transcribed as Jillian. emoticon

If transcription mistakes are worth mentioning, it must have been quite good speeches. emoticon

It's still a bloody disgrace that Ritchie was not made to feel welcome enough to turn [sign in to see URL] grudged mentions of him by Gillan and Glover barely mask the contempt they clearly still have towards him ,bitter old selfish bastards IMHO emoticon .great to hear DC and Glenn pay proper tribute and honour him properly . emoticon It's all very hollow without Ritchie being there .

Nice, to see them all together on this stage. It's a shame, that Ritchie didn't show up. It seems, he is a really a very bitter person. And Rod Evans? I don't know. It would have been a good chance for him, to get over the past. But still: All members of Deep Purple should have been inducted. And all of them, who are alive, should have been there. I still don't care too much about the RRHoF, but it would have been a nice chance to gather and bury old hatches.

Sorry man, but I´m starting to think you are Ritchie ONLY fan.... not Deep Purple fan. emoticon

"There is an enormous amount of people we should thank, and I'm not going to go through their names. I can't remember them. My friends in Deep Purple – Ian Paice, Ian Gillan, Jon Lord, Ritchie Blackmore – changed my life forever. And I'm deeply indebted to them, as I am to all you people for making this possible."
Really - what a grudged mention of RB! emoticon

About DP speeches - IG/RG/IP´s speeches are fine (but for my taste - a bit too diplomatic to be honest, I hoped for some sort of well-deserved critic towards whole RRHOF circus), Coverdale´s is fine until he speaks about current Whitesnake members (sorry, it has nothing to do with Purple induction!) and about lawyers, managers etc.... On other side, it´s completely fine to thank to family members! Also - I found it really strange how GH started his speech "Hi, I´m Glenn Hughes...." - what a weird start, but what can you expect from guy who talks about himself in 3rd person regularly? emoticon This GH´s sentence sounds a bit strange too "I want to thank Roger Glover, for getting me in the Hall of Fame. I replaced him, and I joined the band as a lead singer/bass player." But it´s probably cultural difference between European based and US based people. emoticon
