Readers of Rolling Stone magazine recently voted Deep Purple as the band most deserving induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. I was happy to see this as I was once a rock keyboardist, and there was no other band that featured that instrument more. The late Jon Lord was a truly brilliant keyboardist. The band’s “Fireball” was my very first album purchase. Deep Purple is followed on the list by the Smiths, KISS, Yes, the Moody Blues and Cheap Trick.
