Joe Lynn Tuner Reacts To Blackmore's Deep Purple Rock Hall Comments (A Top Story)


.
On Thursday Joe Lynn Tuner Reacts To Blackmore's Deep Purple Rock Hall Comments was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Former Deep Purple singer Joe Lynn Tuner has issued a response to comments by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore following the band's induction into the 2016 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at an April 8 ceremony in New York.

"Obviously, as you know from the post here," wrote Blackmore on Facebook. "I have my reason for not attending the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony, although I appreciate the award. However, I do think that they should've given an award to Joe Lynn Turner for when he was in Deep Purple for his singing and writing on 'Slaves And Masters' - a great record, one of my favorites."

Deep Purple were honored at the event alongside fellow inductees Cheap Trick, Steve Miller, Chicago and N.W.A. The Rock Hall chose to induct most of Deep Purple's first three lineups, including Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Rod Evans, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes.

"Congrats to Deep Purple for their long overdue induction," wrote Turner on Facebook. "And I am proud and blessed to be a part of the DP legacy. However, Blackmore's absence at the ceremony was truly noticed. His credo always was and is to know your own truth and walk your own path... follow no one. A true 'outlaw' til the end.

"So I am humbled and touched by the recent Blackmore post concerning my work with the band. His respectful and supportive comments of my efforts on the 'Slaves And Masters' album were better than any 'award' I could receive, especially from an organization that has 'lost the point' many years ago."
