Deep Purple Not Bothered By Rock Hall Snub

(hennemusic) Deep Purple were denied entry to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this year, losing out to such artists as American pop singer-songwriter Randy Newman and R&B singer Donna Summer.

The members of Purple, who will release a new album titled "Now What?!" on April 30 in North America, say it is no big loss.

"I don't think the band really care, actually," keyboardist Don Airey tells The Straits Times. "It'd be nice but there's been no 'awwwww', no disappointment."

"The gig's the thing with this band, the next concert," he adds. "That's what it's all about and we're looking forward to Singapore."

The keyboardist would like to see the Rock Hall stay true to its brand name by placing more emphasis on rockers. more on this story
