Deep Purple Top Rock Hall Public Poll (A Top Story)
Publisher Jan Wenner serves as the chairman of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation, which oversees all elements of the organization. Rolling Stone says: "You can't blame the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame nominating committee for not bringing Deep Purple in. They've put them on the ballot several times over the past few years. It probably has something to do with the fact that the vast, vast majority of voters are American. If the people of Europe had the chance to vote, Deep Purple would have been in years ago."
Electric Light Orchestra land at No. 2 on the list, with Rolling Stone suggesting "maybe ELO were a little poppy and eclectic for the tastemakers of their day, but we have a feeling they'll make it into the Hall Of Fame in the next few years." See who else made the list - here.
