RRHOF ceremony - my overview


1.) RRHOF ceremony got actually better response from band than this ceremonial deserved for years of ignorance, which was shown even during induction... Forgot to mention - Lars Ulrich speech - big success, he is obviously big fan... but still, mixed feeling, I would rather see Deep Purple as bunch of virtuosos to be inducted by other famous virtuoso rather than by most famous drummer who cant play drums. emoticon

2.) I´m actually in mixed feelings - it was relatively fine, but I hoped for some critical statements from Purple camp - they were all way too diplomatic, which slightly disappointed me. For journalist who gave that "controversial" question to IG - I would reply a bit different - maybe that there was one night where all problems should be put aside, but that´s not RRHOF induction (why on that charade?!), but it was Jon Lord´s Celebrating show - and it didnt happen that night.

About speeches:
- it was great to see Vicky there!
- from all the speeches, despite the way too diplomatic attitude, IG´s one seemed the best one. He mentioned everyone in DP career and it was nice to hear applause from crowd given to not inducted members - Nick, Tommy, both Joes, Steve and Don. DC´s speech got out of context when he thanked to Whitesnake members, lawyers etc.... and GH´s speech.... Glenn is Glenn, what else can I say. I still have no idea what he meant by his thanking to Roger, but it seemed really very strange!

3.) DP performance was fine, nice tribute to Ritchie from Steve during guitar solo, but otherwise, that version of Smoke was a bit more dirty than usually, Highway Star and Hush were fine. Setlist wasnt suprising, performance was good.

Re: RRHOF ceremony - my overview


Lars' speech was the highlight for me. Regardless of his abilities, his love for the band shone through.

DC did take it too far when he mentioned his lawyers, producer and WS band members. I actually liked Glenn's speech the best of all the inductees - a tip of the hat to Mk2 (Roger) and some nice words for the rest of the Mk3 lineup.

It was great to see Vicky Lord there.

I thought Ian G looked very uncomfortable when asked about Ritchie's absence and his reply about having invited him sounded very unconvincing to me.

The real shame of the night was that DC and GH had to jam with Cheap Trick on a cover tune rather than with DP. Regardless of who was closing the show, surely a jam with DC/GH could have been accommodated in Purple's set?

There's the rub. Should have happened.

1) which virtuoso did you have on your mind?

Personally I think Lars was the right choice. A real fan, who knows what he is talking about. Not a fan of Lars nor Metallica, but chapeau to him.

2) agree on most points. Stated several times before that I think that Gillan should have been much more critical in his speech.
Before the induction he was very critical, but now...

3) DP perfomance was a disappointment because the DC and GH were left out in the cold. Gillan told that DC was a Gent, but Gillan isn't. DC and GH were supposed to join in during the finale of SOTW, but weren't there. They only were on stage with that terrible jam at the end.

Agree 100 % with Big J's remarks

Only strange that GH didn't mention Tommy. I've been to a lot GH concerts and every time he mentioned Tommy.

[sign in to see URL] still an honour to be inducted into this body and be in their rightful place alongside Sabbath and [sign in to see URL] is a disgrace that it took so long to induct [sign in to see URL] did superbly well with his speech and spoke like a true fan which is what he [sign in to see URL] fact that he's not the best drummer in the world is neither here nor there? he is the drummer in one of the biggest bands on the planet who were hugely influenced by Deep Purple.

[sign in to see URL] is full of !@#$.I have no respect left for that man which is difficult because he's still one of my favourite singers.
Speeches were diplomatic and Gillan typically just bracketed Ritchie in with the other ex members .Rog came across as the most [sign in to see URL], Rog and Paicey were decidedly uncomfortable at the Q&A and rightly [sign in to see URL] watched it again I do think Rog was genuinely embarrassed at the way Blackers had been treated and appeared to genuinely have wanted him there?Gillan and Paicey clearly didn't and were annoyed that he rightly got all the attention .


3. Performance was huge disappointment as NO BLACKMORE,HUGHES and COVERDALE, instead we got the touring [sign in to see URL] touch by SM to play Ritchies solo in tribute to [sign in to see URL] the rest of the band don't share this guys integrity.

You're kidding, right?
Vai? Petrucci?
Wakeman, great keyboardplayer, but no.
Next you say Gene Simmons.
Lars was THE best, always talking highly of DP.

Agreed in most points. And I would like to know the real reason, why DC and GH didn't join. Was is band's decision? Was it their decision? About Glenn's speech: Ok, he is Glenn. But I found it nice to hear that nod to Roger. It made clear, that he and DC would never have been inducted, if MK 2 hadn't existed. About Jon Lord's Celebrating show: They played together there, but sadly Glenn was the only one, who wanted to play with the current members.

DC and Glenn not performing was strange. I thought it was awkward on stage but I think DC thinking members of Whitesnake and his lawyers was probably a small dig at Gillan and the "living, breathing" Deep Purple thing from before the event.

We will never see Gillan and Coverdale on the same stage performing. After the ceremony Coverdale said something about Deep Purple's issues with communicating. Seems accurate.
