Metallica Star Pushing For Deep Purple Rock Hall Induction

Deep Purple have been eligible for the Rock Hall since 1993; to date, they've been nominated twice for induction - in 2013 and 2014. Ulrich and Metallica entered the Rock Hall 2009, the second year they were eligible and first year they were nominated. more on this story
