Finally, the RNRHOF has a good line up this year to induct. Cheap Trick, Deep Purple, The Steve Miller Band and…NWA? Not sure how much “Rock” NWA is but I didn’t vote on it. Article is below this awesome gate fold  of Cheap Trick!




From Rolling Stone:

Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen is rarely speechless, but the news that his band got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame briefly left him unable to find find words. “Usually I’m a man of many words, but this has got me in a tizzy here,” he says on the phone. “I’m verklempt. I don’t know what to say. It’s very exciting.” The moment passed quickly, and soon enough he was chatting about the induction ceremony, a possible reunion with original drummer Bun E. Carlos and why Cheap Trick will never stop touring.

“Deep Purple” on the Today Show!, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Smoke_on_the_WaterFormed in 1968. Deep Purple despite a few key line up changes (mainly Ritchie Blackmore) is still kicking butt! Kids, this is how its done! Think not? You write a song that still gets the people up and moving when it’s 40 plus years old then we can talk. And by the way, listen to those real vocals… Ian Gillian is the man behind the pipes! Here it is. Off their 1972 album titled “Machine Head”. One of the first riffs most guitarists learn…


“Smoke on the Water”
