Profile:

"The loudest band in history"...."Posh Mans Led Zeppelin"....whatever people say deep purple were one of the founders of rock music and one of the greatest bands to have ever lived. No other band has a legacy like Deep Purple, whether you prefer the early and late material with Gillan on vocals or the late 1970s folk rock of David Coverdale, Deep Purple catered for a wide audience. The bands power peaked with the release of Machine Head which contains their biggest hit "Smoke on the water" but others were firm favourites too like Highway Star and Space Truckin.
They hit a low in the years to follow with Blackmore and Glover going on to play in Rainbow and Gillan having a break, but like birds to the nest they reformed to produce the stunning "Perfect Strangers" in 1984, my favourite album of the 1980s largely because it was the MKII line up.
Their sound was still as fresh as ever and Blackmores guitar tone is so heavenly angels are jealous!! [listen to "wasted sunsets" and youll hear what I mean]. Still touring to this day with Ian Paice the only member to have been in the band throughout its career, you cant beat a bit of Deep Purple!!.... child in time, fireball, stormbringer, burn, soldier of fortune, black night, hush are still all classics...to all the trainspotters ive edited "Blackmore" now, problems with predicted typing I guess, R.I.P. Jon Lord by the way
