Celebrating all things Hard Rock & Heavy Metal since 1983!
Our very own Eddie Trunk spoke with Stu, Tiff and Jimbo of 98.6’s KCI Rocks about the 2013 Rock n Roll HOF inductees. Listen to the audio below.
Eddie merry Xmas to you and the fellas on that metal show…glad to see that kiss is finally in the rock n roll hall of fame…I hope that deep purple gets in next year..hopefully your strong influence and following can eventually get them in…looking forward to a new season of that metal show..all the best and happy holidays
what about thin lizzy, def leppard, bonjovi,deep purple, styx, journey, cheap trick. tesla, the list goeson and on,kansas,……..pearljam
Great audio. Interesting insight about the voting protocol. Knew the fan vote was inconsequential, but it’s interesting to know that inducted bands get to lobby also.
Great comments on Deep Purple! They should have been in a long time ago! Truly the greatest hard rock band of all time in my opinion. Still going strong with a great new album and one of the best live bands you will ever see. It’s quite obvious to me the people who do the voting really have no clue and should be ashamed of themselves. Maybe next time.
it dont matter!! it’s still a fn joke!!! i hate it .f&^$C the r& r hof!!
I totally agree with bob. If all these bands record sales and overall popularity doesn’t tell the story to you now then trust me placing them in the RnR hall of fame will make no difference.
Now let’s try to get Deep Purple and Ronnie James Dio who need to get in and many other acts who keep getting snubbed! Maybe like what Eddie said with bands like Metallica and G N R now in the HOF they can get some of a say who should get nominated in voted in! Hope next year we will see more Hard Rock acts get nominated and get in!
What we, as metal and rock fans, need is a REAL Hall of Fame for rock and metal bands. One that does NOT include MC Hammer, Hall & Oates or Madonna. Eddie should spearhead this project.
How in the hell does Nirvana get in and someone like Motley Crue doesn’t even get mentioned. i am not sure how they could put GnR in before Motley. Motley’s body of work, should make them a no brainer. Both GnR and Nirvana are getting in because of 1 album a piece. Appetite is an all time great and i love it and think it is probably the greastest album of all time and Nevermind started grunge but how is Motley so overlooked?
While you are certainly entitled to your opinion, I cannot agree with you about Motley Crue, sorry.
As Eddie has stated before, Guns N’ Roses were being inducted into the Hall because they had hoped that there would be a reunion of the original members onstage and that would create a lot of buzz. But, even discounting that, Appetite for Destruction, was a somewhat influential and unique record for its time. While I like Motley Crue, I cannot name one thing that they have ever done that I would consider exceptional and groundbreaking.
Finally, if anyone should be inducted, I think it should be Judas Priest. Of course, the fact that Deep Purple, who was an influence on countless other bands, is not in either, is completely ludicrous.

The Hall is a joke because those who decide are not audiophiles or music listeners. They, at most, “hear” some kind of music and are as unqualified as music fans as a group can be. I quit caring when Rap people were added, the hall “powers that be” can’t even tell the difference between music types. I’m not saying Rap is music since nobody sings or plays an instrument, but for those who like noise of that type, have your own Hall with a shooting gallery.
Having a Website, if I was in a band, I’d have more to care about if Eddie let reads/viewers decide people monthly by poll or on each episode of “That Metal Show.” At least it would be ROCK along with Metal having an equal chance that it doesn’t currently have.
Unbelievable no DP…no disrespect to Kiss but DP needs to be in before…over 150 million albums sold WW, Billboard’s top selling artist in 1973, hard rock masterpieces from 70-74 (In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head, Made In Japan, Burn), major hits with smoke, woman from tokyo, highwaystar, hush…, headlining cal jam, amazing comeback record with Perfect Strangers and the 2nd highest grossing tour in 84/85, releasing Now What in 2013 and charting number 1 in many countries…not to mention the talents of ritchie blackmore, ian paice, jon lord, ian gillan, roger glover, david coverdale, glenn hughes, tommy bolin, steve morse, and don airey. What about all the splinter bands???? Rainbow, Whitesnake, Captain Beyond, Blackmore’s Night, and all the other solo stuff….name one fucking band that comes close to achieving all that…
