Richie Blackmore Could Care Less About Deep Purple Rock Hall Nod

(hennemusic) Deep Purple are among the first-time nominees considered for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame's Class of 2013 and legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore doesn't appear to be excited by the prospect.

"Personally, I couldn't care less," Blackmore 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."

"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." more on this story
