The discussion of legendary Heavy Metal/Hard Rock acts often begins with Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. However, it really isn’t a stretch to include Deep Purple on that level. Like Sabbath & Zeppelin (who are currently inducted), Deep Purple had the hit records, the signature songs, an excellent reputation as a great live act, and they meet the influence category. Already eligible for fifteen years the only real knock against them is the multiple lineup changes they have had but with a resume like theirs, and with their perceived peers in; their legions of fans hope that they won’t have to wait another fifteen years. We can’t imagine they will.
