GUITARIST RITCHIE BLACKMORE THINKS THAT SINGER JOE LYNN TURNER SHOULD HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED BY THE ROCK N’ ROLL HALL OF FAME
Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore has posted the following message on his Facebook page:
“Obviously, as you know from the post here, 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 members who were officially admitted into the Rock Hall include: Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore,singer David Coverdale, vocalist Rod Evans, singer Ian Gillan, bassist Roger Glover, vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice.
The Rock N’ Roll of Fame induction ceremony took place on April 8th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn N.Y., it will air April 30th on HBO.
