Purple pick up Kerrang! award

Deep Purple being inducted into Kerrang Hall of Fame; London, June 12, 2014

Deep Purple were inducted into Kerrang! Hall of Fame this year at the award ceremony held on June 12 in London. There they join previous years inductees of the (mostly) metal oriented publication: Mötley Crüe, Iron Maiden, Slayer and Machine Head (the latter claim their band’s name has no relation to the Purple classic album). The award was presented to Ian & Ian by Taylor Momsen of the Pretty Reckless, who herself picked up the Hottest Female award (apparently, there is one — you always learn something!)

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    A hearty and well deserved congratulations to everyone on board. I cracked up laughing, the award was presented by the “Hottest Female” or should that read, the Hottest looking “Female”well done guys.

    Kerrang lost the plot years ago.
    This is as evidenced by the bands in their hall Of Fame BEFORE Purple. Machine Head??? Really???????

    Kerrang was a great magazine in the days of Whitesnake, Gillan and Rainbow, etc, early 80’s.

    Later on it became more and more a generic metalmagazine.

    I think this is what the band was aiming for when it sat around in Deeves Hall in 1968 ;)
