Deep Purple makes the list!

Deep Purple formed in Hertford in 1968 and are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and hard rock music. Throughout it's career, Deep Purple have sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

For the first time ever, fans will be able to vote for their favorite performers to get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In the past only artists, historians and music industry insiders of the Rock Hall have been allowed to vote. All the votes from fans will comprise the “fan’s ballot,” which will count as one in the more than 600 ballots counted to determine the Class of 2013. You have until December 5th to cast your vote for Ian Paice and Deep Purple at Rolling Stone.

A performer or group only becomes eligible for a nomination 25 years after of their first release.

The winners will be announced in mid-December and with a ceremony honoring all the inductees on April 18, 2013.

Deep Purple’s legendary drummer designed his Signature Snare Drum to have classic looks and sound with modern components. The 6.5” steel shell will give you a big rock sound, and the locking nuts will help your drum stay in tune all night long.
