Metallica Star Pushing For Deep Purple Rock Hall Induction

(hennemusic) On the eve of the 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in New York, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich is stepping up to promote his support for Deep Purple's inclusion in the institution.

"I'm not gonna get into the politics or all that stuff, but I got two words to say: 'Deep Purple,'" he tells Rolling Stone. "That's all I have to say: Deep Purple. Seriously, people, 'Deep Purple,' two simple words in the English language.

"But definitely, Nirvana is a no-brainer for the first year and I'm glad that Kiss is getting the long-overdue recognition that they deserved for everything that they pioneered, and then I got two words, 'Deep Purple!' Did I say that already?"

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
