My parents went to Ian Gillan's house for his birthday party once (some relation was dating him) and my dad ended up playing darts with him. That's their only celebrity story that I know of, but I think it's a good one.
They were a great band, very enjoyable albums.

Deep Purple is the best classic rock band next to the Stones.

Ritchie Blackmore in my honest opinion is the best classic rock guitarist.

I own all their albums. Not only do I love Deep Purple, I love the other bands connected to them such as Whitesnake, Rainbow, Sabbath and Ozzy

Yeah I love Deep Purple, went to see them last summer with April Wine. They put on a decent show, considering they had Steve Morse instead of Blackmore. Blackmore is quite the guitarist, very underrated. Love Rainbow too, maybe even more than Deep Purple (early Rainbow, with Dio).

Has anyone ever heard Blackmore's Night that he's doing now with his wife? It's weird stuff, I think he should go back to Deep Purple and do a more-or-less reunion tour (as close to a "reunion" as an unstable band such as Deep Purple can get).

Rainbow is crazy. What a damn good band. Blackmore/Dio combination is killer. As for Deep Purple, I have 5 albums, not nearly enough. Soon enough I'm gonna get at least 1 or 2 of the last 4 they've done with Steve Morse. I've heard some songs from this era and love them. Steve Morse is incredibly talented and fits in perfect to DP's sound.

Morse is a great guitarist...just after hearing Blackmore DP, its hard to take Morse DP seriously. His style compliments the band as it stands. I'm not into his style as much as I am with Ritchie b/c he's more of a fluent, clean/pure classicaly influenced guitarist.

The man lays the law down on guitar...hands down.

I like the stuff he's doing as Blackmore's Night. It sounds like Russian folk music a lot of the time but there's still some great guitar work. Check out Wish You Were Here from Shadow of the Moon, I love that song (not a Pink Floyd cover btw). My friend went to one of their gigs and half the audience went in robes, except the guy he ended up next to who just had an old sack on, cheap bastard lol.

Deep Purple rock!! I was inspired to pick the guitar because of Blackmore after hearing Highway Star for the first time. But ya, other stuff is awesome, like speed king, burn and lazy. I like Rainbow alot too and have all the Dio years material, awesome stuff. Blackmore plays with such an aggressive / mean, yet clear sound. He is definately a guitar god.

ive got Machine Head and Who do we Think we Are, and they are both awesome :D i should listen to them again, its been a few months now...


the main thing i love about Deep Purple is how they use organs... while most bands this style used massive guitar solos, they substituted with organ solos... and they are mind-blowing!!

Well to be honest all I have heard from Blackmore's Night is that double live cd. The name of it has escaped me currently. They did a a cover of Soldier of Fortune and I think Sixteenth Century Greensleeves if I am not mistaken. I don't know, I gave it a few listens, found it a little hard to get into. If you heard the live stuff, is it much different from the studio recordings, maybe I will give them another listen, because Blackmore is quite a genius.

I haven't heard them live unfortunatly, Past Times With Good Company I think that album's called. Some of their music is very different from Deep Purple and just because you're a fan of those records doesn't mean you'll like Blackmore's Night. The best way I can describe a lot of it is being like Russian folk music, with Blackmore's guitar coming into the mix at times. I like it, but I would expect a lot of people not to - one of my friends who loves Deep Purple has tried listening to Blackmore's Night and he hates it, but I prefer it. If you don't like them live a doubt they're much different from the studio records.

peko
12-19-2005, 01:49 AM
I only he is one of riff masters(he and Toni Iommi best for riffs-my opinion). Just listen "Smoke On the Water","Black Night","Speed King" and my favorites "Perfect Strangers" and "Burn".On "Burn" live version there is so fine combination of Ritchie's guitar and Jon Lord's Hammonds.How are they connected that's pure magic. Unfortunately, neither Lord neither Blackmore are not with Purple today on their tours.I've heard their concert from "Montreux Jazz Festival" and there was Lord but Morse on guitar.Morse is good too, he gave them some new taste.

So what do you guys think of Steve Morse's influences on the later albums..? (1994 - ... )


I love Blackmore, he is an amazing guitarist IMO, but i also love Morse, i love how he's influenced the 'new direction' as it were of Deep Purple... The Irish influences constanly coming through...

Fav Morse Purple songs:

- Haunted

- Contact Lost

- Walk On

- Picture of Innocence

- The Aviator

- Soon Forgotten

- Silver Tongue



I am loving these tracks in particular... Anyone else with views on the Morse stuff...?

Dio sang in Sabbath after he had sung in Rainbow
Ian Gillan (from Deep Purple) took over as singer in Black Sabbath when Dio left.
However they only recorded one album, Born Again, 1983. Pretty good imo

ian gillan is a great singer even nowadays hes still got it.
ian paice is an amazin drummer
john lord is astounding on keys

Deep Purple is my favorite band! Clapton is my favorite artist but I don't think of band and artist as the same thing.
Favorite Deep Purple Songs:
Smoke on the Water: awesome riff
Child In Time: omg listen to the solo
When A Blind Man Cries: Vocals are amazing on this one
Burn: Fast-paced and Coverdale's and Hughes' vocals complement one another
I have 4.5 gigs of DP on my hard drive but its mostly earlier stuff. I really need to get more Steve Morse stuff. I do have Rapture of the Deep and I think it has some great songs. I like Wrong Man and Rapture of the Deep. If anyone has AOL AIM and can send me the Steve Morse cds, Deep Purple or Dixie Dregs, please IM me at KANAMVAR32.

Deep Purple has a very confusing history. I actually have a list of all the DP lineups and cds they made. I also have a decent memory of Black Sabbath history as well as Rainbow. But it's far too much to share here. But for that guy who mentioned Ozzy. He was never part of DP. Ronnie James Dio, Glenn Hughes, and Ian Gillian were all members of DP and went to Black Sabbath for a short time. Ritchie Blackmore formed the band Rainbow and had Dio and Joe Lynn Turner (later in DP) as lead singers. Former DP singer David Coverdale formed Whitesnake. Glenn Hughes and Tony Iommi also did work together apart from Black Sabbath (Dep Sessions and Fused).

Steve Morse and Ritchie Blackmore are both amazing guitarists who I believe are underappreciated.

And for someone above... I bought a reissue of In Rock with Black Night and a few extra songs on it.

I've followed Deep Purple from the early days shortly after there break into the North American market with Hush. I have every studio album ever released and many others too. Picture discs, colored vinyl, interview albums, bootlegs, one sided LP's, promos, radio station, Japanese and European pressings etc.
I saw them in concert in 1973, 1984 and twice in 2004. Don't miss this show!!!
The new material done in the last 10 years is great. Steve Morse has taken the band where Blackmore couldn't. Blackmore eventually took DP to the edge of disaster. He's much better off on his own.
The most resent peice is "Rapture of the Deep" (2005) and before that was "Bananas" (2003). Check 'em out when you get the chance.

Cheers, LPN.

hmmm, i got this for chrismas, its not that bad but they've done many a better album.

Steve Morse is talented but hes not Ritchie Blackmore. His solos seem kinda empty and expressionless.

Jon Lords replacement, Don Airey (still favouring the hammond) is again an excellent musician but again hes not Jon.

Glad to see that thy're branching out from classic rock though. Ian even wrote a song about it, "MTV". Unfortunately its the worst track on the album.

How does this compare to the rest of the Morse stuff? Also, is the MkII re-union album any good? (perfect strangers i think, at least it has that track on it.)

Best Classic Rock guitarist award goes to Ritchie Blackmore
Best Classic Rock keyboardist goest to Jon Lord
Best Elton John look-alike award goest to Ian Paice (j/k)

They were badass, once the loudest band in the world too according to Guiness Book of World Records.

Am I the only one that likes the quirky "Anyone's Daughter" from Fireball?

Little tid bit factoid:
Fireballs "Strange Kind of Woman" is related to the 1984 Perfect Strangers "Knocking at your Back door". They both talk about one woman by the name of "Nancy".

And did you guys like the song "Knocking at your back door" less or more after you found out what is was about? (Anal sex) Due to my personal experiences since I first heard the song, I like it more now. (thanks babe ;-)

As for Knocking at your Back Door, I always thought it was about anal sex since I first heard it, but I thought that was just me...and now it has been confirmed, so...I still like it the same, I guess. It is a most excellent song

I've heard Gillan saying "Strange Kind of Woman" is a true stroy... for the other song I dont know but if it's about the same person then...

Also, is the MkII re-union album any good? (perfect strangers i think, at least it has that track on it.)

It's called Perfect Strangers ;)
It's quiet good I think although Mk II's (and Mk III's) album in the 70s was better, imo

Wtf are you talking about? You just go ahead and try to listen to songs "Burn" or "Highway Star" while "tripping on acid". Or any of their songs for that matter.

Bands that require you to be tripping on acid to listen to are bands like Iron Butterfly and whatnot. Then maybe you can understand the words at least :p:

By the way, does anyone else like "Burn"? I don't see it mentioned too often and I think it is a really good song that deserves more attention than songs like "Smoke on the Water". Fast-paced rock at it's best, that's "Burn". The damn song is more than 6 minutes long too. I love it :headbang:

But, when you think about it, throughout history, popular music hasn't always been the music that best portrayed the artists ability. If its got a good riff, it can be as simple you want, its still going to be popular.

To musicians like ourselves, we (sometimes) tend to go towards the more technically difficult music by a particular artist, but, the vast majority of music-listeners aren't actually musicians.

^Oh I know that, don't get me wrong. Everything I said was from a musician's point of view, being a guitarist like I am. I always look for the more technical and complex pieces by guitarists :p:

I know that it is obvious that non-musicans are pretty much just looking for a catchy beat. Most catchy beats are simple, thats what makes them so catchy(did I abuse this word yet? :p: ). They're not looking for a complex lick or chop nor are they really interested in one.

Best Keyboard player EVER in the history of the world, Jon Lord inspired me to take up the keyboard But he also made me give up when i realised that he is a million times better than I ever wil be! Ian Gillan has the most superhuman voice ever! Perfect Pitch even when screaming at an amizing high pitch with really cool vibratos.

Burn is one of the best Deep Purple songs. Mk III has some really good songs apart from Burn songs like Stormbringer and Mistreated.

It is based on a true story, but whether or not the prostitute's name is Nancy, I'm not entirely sure.
Gillan tells it during a filmed concert from 1972. The concert is from the time just before recording Machine Head because they play songs from Machine Head and sys it is "the up-coming album".

Exactly. And They're so different they're impossible to compare.

Back on topic: Who thinks that morse and Lord should exchane licks on guitar/keyboard more often. I just got a Deep Purple DVD with the montreux sets from 1996 and 2000, and my favourite part from the whole thing is when Morse plays something, then Lord plays it back and they get really into it and have tons of fun. It sounds really cool to me, and it made me want to get a keyboard player to jam with.

First of all, they're completely uncomparable guitarists, with two very distinct different styles, that, from time to time, do sound similar, but as a whole are not related.

Also, Gilmour is probably as underrated (or overrated) as Ritchie Blackmore is, depending on your light of whether they are underrated or overrated.

Morse is a great guitarist...just after hearing Blackmore DP, its hard to take Morse DP seriously. His style compliments the band as it stands. I'm not into his style as much as I am with Ritchie b/c he's more of a fluent, clean/pure classicaly influenced guitarist.

The man lays the law down on guitar...hands down.

i strongly disagree. i've got purpendicular and i hate it. hsi style is too metal for deep purple imo. plus the singer in it doesn't work. i think it's the guy from saxon.

Blackmore / Morse are 2 very different styles of player from different generations. Ritchies best for me was the blues based stuff (black night / machine head / etc) before he went on the phase of trying to add classical influences into the songs.

I love the mark 2 line up but I'd still say that Morse's playing on the song "Casscades" (check out live at Olympia CD) is the finest purple solo to date.

Ok I just listened to something off of Machine Head and now I remember why I despise that album so much.

How does that explain how he is better than Blackmore?? Plus saying he is the greatest living guitarist right now just sounds arrogant, there is no way you can prove that; have you seen every guitarist? I know he has technical abiltiy there is no doubting that and i dont hate Mr Smiley either but there are plenty of guitarists on you tube that can do the same thing. Plus all he did when i saw him was play the top 4 high strings in roughly the same position where look at Blackmore who is all over the neck doing 6 string sweeps. Also listen to tracks like Possum goes to Prague for something different.
Not that this really matters to me, I would rather listen to feeling which is why I like Blackmore, he has a great combination of both not the best at either maybe but my favourite.

The song "The Battle Rages on..." is on the album "The Battle Rages on..." released in 1993 with Mk II's second reunion (the first being Perfect Strangers and THoBL)
I like that song too!


On Blackmore vs Morse (btw vs threads are not allowed :p: ) :

I think Blackmore is way better than Morse. Ok Morse has the technical ability I can agree with that. However there are more things that makes a guitar player great than just playing fast (this has been said before like Page vs Vai and Hendrix vs Buckethead, you get the point).

Honour to Morse for bringing back Purple to some ok songs after some really crappy MkII reunions (and an underrated JLT-lineup in between). However I believe that Blackmore has done PLENTY more things to Deep Purple than Morse ever will.

The song "The Battle Rages on..." is on the album "The Battle Rages on..." released in 1993 with Mk II's second reunion (the first being Perfect Strangers and THoBL)
I like that song too!

Okay, thanks. That's really the only song I've heard of later Deep Purple.

It's awesome, though.

On Blackmore vs Morse (btw vs threads are not allowed :p: ) :

I think Blackmore is way better than Morse. Ok Morse has the technical ability I can agree with that. However there are more things that makes a guitar player great than just playing fast (this has been said before like Page vs Vai and Hendrix vs Buckethead, you get the point).



Yes, and ironically his neo-classical playing was the largest influence on Yngwie Malmsteens playing, whom I happen to hate, as opposed to Blackmores playing which I love.

How does that explain how he is better than Blackmore?? Plus saying he is the greatest living guitarist right now just sounds arrogant, there is no way you can prove that; have you seen every guitarist? I know he has technical abiltiy there is no doubting that and i dont hate Mr Smiley either but there are plenty of guitarists on you tube that can do the same thing. Plus all he did when i saw him was play the top 4 high strings in roughly the same position where look at Blackmore who is all over the neck doing 6 string sweeps. Also listen to tracks like Possum goes to Prague for something different.
Not that this really matters to me, I would rather listen to feeling which is why I like Blackmore, he has a great combination of both not the best at either maybe but my favourite.

I was saying Morse was more technically proficent. And I stand by that. In my opinon, he is the greatest living guitarist. I have not seen every guitarist, but if they were better than Morse they woulkd have record deals like Steve has, and I would have heard them. Have you ever watched any Morse videos? He does a lot more than stay in one position. He can play everything, and plays everything tremendously. He goes from country and jazz/fusion with The Dregs, to Rock with Purple to Classical and shred for his solo stuff. Blackmore plays neo-classical rock. I love early Deep Purple, they are one of my favorite bands, and I love Blackmore too, but Morse is a better guitarist.

I have seen Morse videos and live and if you think that its just super he can play every genre good for you, oh wait Balckmore cant do that, he can only play neo-classically!!!! I mean you seriously sound like you dont know your stuff.... I'm gonna take that your a guitarist right so i wont say your a noob who doesnt know what their talking about rather just say i dont think you have heard enough of Blackmore to fully justify your comments.
I also know Morse plays in more than one position, maybe that night he just didnt feel like moving all that much, and played a really boring solo.
And just because someone doesnt have a record deal doesnt make them any less of a guitarist, thats like saying Jessica Simpson got a record deal because she really can sing. I think we both know record deals mean nothing when it comes to true talent these days so that is a pretty lame defence.
I know Morse is technical and good at guitar you dont need to justify that.

Well Blackmore certainly plays more than neo-classical rock. Right now he plays acoustic Medieval music. Writning this on top of my head so I couldnt come up with more but you must agree that many songs by both Deep Purple and Rainbow (with Blackmore on guitar) are not neo-cassical rock.

Well he went from blues (being a Hendrix fan) then introduced oriental scales, played neoclassically, pop/rock (he is a huge ABBA fan beleive it or not) then medieval/renaissance/folk even Christmas Carols now ect. I'm not trying to say he promotes more genres than Morse here but hes not single minded and cuts himself off to one genre either. Listen to the live 76-77 era of Rainbow (bootlegs as well) and also like I said before 'Possum goes to Prague' (yes finger picked) until Morse can come up with something like that hes just an average shredder to me.

What genres does Blackmore cover??? Honestly??? Rock, Neo-Classical, Medievel accoustic stuff, and that is really it.

I shall step into this argument as I have little else to do with my free time.

What genres does Blackmore cover??? Honestly??? Rock, Neo-Classical, Medievel accoustic stuff, and that is really it.

Blackmore - rock, metal.

Morse - rock, metal.

At least as far as "genres" are concerned.

I mean he is great, but lets see him play some country licks, or shred his ass of like Morse.

I've seen Blackmore shred. He isn't perfection, but he's good nonetheless. Morse is (roughly) half Blackmore's age and grew up in completely different musical stages. They are bound to be different.

How do I not know my stuff if I think Morse is better than Blackmore? And do you know how many indepent, "Guitar" record labels there are??? More than you can phathum. You make this sound like there are only the major record labels that have bands like Mc Chemical Romance or Blink 182, there is so much, its crazy. How do you think Zappa got any Post-MGM, pre-Zappa Records before he had his own studio? Indie labels.

Morse has a record deal because he also plays solo. Blackmore never has. I am shit with labels, so if someone can find out anything about Steamhammer, then that's what Blackmore's on with Blackmore's Night.

If a guitarist is THAT good, then most likely, if he was accually playing gigs, he would be a label.

He's playing gigs, but not as a solo artist, therefore he doesn't appear as one name on a record label, he is as his band is named. I don't believe he has his own record label, because quite frankly I don't think he's the sort of person who would look after other projects.

What genres does Blackmore cover??? Honestly??? Rock, Neo-Classical, Medievel accoustic stuff, and that is really it. I mean he is great, but lets see him play some country licks, or shred his ass of like Morse

Blackmore was a creator of shed so I’m quite certain he is able to ‘shred his ass off like Morse’ he might not play as fast but he is also very concerned on how it will sound and would rather not let his fingers run away and play like sh!t. But more importantly speed doesn’t matter unless you’re a 13 year old shredder, most people aren’t so naive. Also if you take note that in terms of shredding Blackmore is more technical in this area. Blackmore doesn’t like country so he doesn’t play it, nor do I think it would prove his ability anymore if he did. These are also two very different guitarists; don’t try to compare apples with oranges (genres)


How do I not know my stuff if I think Morse is better than Blackmore?

Thats not what I acctually meant but as I said before, listen to more of Blackmore. Did you listen to what I suggested? You said Blackmore only played Neo-Classically which he obviously doesn’t. Have you even heard anything outside Deep Purple? No discredit to him or the band but that’s no where near his best work, some great songs and improvising, yes, but he was capable of more and showed that in Rainbow.

And do you know how many indepent, "Guitar" record labels there are??? More than you can phathum. You make this sound like there are only the major record labels that have bands like Mc Chemical Romance or Blink 182, there is so much, its crazy. How do you think Zappa got any Post-MGM, pre-Zappa Records before he had his own studio? Indie labels. If a guitarist is THAT good, then most likely, if he was accually playing gigs, he would be a label.

Yes I do know there are many independent labels out there; there is no need to take me as a fool just because I have quite obviously pissed you off. Plus I really don’t see how you could come up with that assumption from my previous post. Also taking that into consideration are you now saying that you have heard every single label out there? Well I know I havent.
I also know many guitarists who are way above what %90 of those with record labels produce. You haven’t heard them, no, but that doesn’t mean they are any less of a guitarist. The truth is, guitarists are a dime a dozen and its no doubt that it’s the band that will get the deal before the solo artist. It is the majority of them that get known with a band and are then able to produce a healthy solo career also generally feeding off that image (not so much in this case). Then there are also many who don’t have a giant ego and play in the shadows and are quite happy playing for the sake of just playing with out the need to try and be a millionaire and be famous. Don’t let your own intentions cloud your judgement of others.

Well he covers a lot in Rainbow if you would have minded listen to them. Progressive metal, metal, pop-rock (is that an English genre?) and ballads for example.

And damn right you will
But then I must also say that this CD you bought and the band that loves to tour raping MKII songs is not Deep Purple at all. Try names such as 'The Ian Gillan band' or 'DP Parody'. Feel free to come up with your own name but they are anything but Deep Purple.

I have no intention to listen to Gillan 'rapping'. The songs are poor, the mixing is shocking and its just all round bad. There is no way a band under any other name ecept that of Deep Purple would get a record deal with that kind of sh!t coated in sugar.

A singer that cant sing and hasnt been able to since the 70's, an old drummer who shows his age, Roger who I beleive has never been anything special, a guitarist that plays with all the warmth of a 'fridge in the arctic' and well Airey.... hes cool. Not the grounds for a really good band imo.

Morse is a good guitarist, technical; yes, but you must also remember that technique isnt every thing. Morse is doing himself no favours other than getting a lot of money kissing gillans ass. He should stick with DD. If you like him fair enough I have no deal with that and he might be your favourite guitarist in this so called 'DP' but saying he is better than Blackmore is asking for 'crit'. DP is Ritchie Blackmore, he was the creative force. A master of riffs a great arranger and left Gillan and Rog to come up with lyrics like 'Big fat tyres and everything' or to see how many words they could think of that rhyme with 'Night'.

I have nothing against DP but they should retire, all it is, is a joke........ not a very funny one I might add.

Deep Purple today is (as Master Shake said) a joke. Making albums which best songs never ever would have been included on any DP album in the 70's (and probably the 60's as well, when half of their songs were covers).
On top of that playing bad versions of essential rock songs like Highway Star etc. Three of the "real" (MkII) members are still in, but when the two most important persons (Blackmore, Lord) are out there is nothing to get.

Just want to say that there is plenty of these "joke-bands" out there. On top of my head I can mention Thin Lizzy who is touring while Phil Lynott has been dead for 25 years.

Seeing this is like going to a concert of Dio (the band) without Dio (the singer) singing or seeing Eric Clapton but with someone else playing guitar.

Morse can top Blackmore now theses days. Blackmore hasn't been doing anything.

Blackmore couldn't ever writen "Rapture of the Deep" or "Money Talks".

Off course Morse couldnt write Woman from Tokyo just as Blackmore didnt write Money Talks. Thanks Mr. Obvious!!! My life is now complete with that sort of wisdom!

Im just saying this parody brings out a new CD right, they play a few, say 5 of their own songs for a month before reverting back to MKII with only one or two current songs. And they destroy them I might add. They also seem to think they are brilliant. Whats more is Gillan's attitude towards Blackmore is that of a 10 year old, you cant even say he respects him as a guitarist either.

Blackmore has also been touring in his Band 'Blackmore's Night' for the past 10 years...... if you doubt he is technical try pieces like 'Possum Goes to Prague' 'Mond Tanz' (Mr Smiley couldnt write them either!!) Im not trying to say he is better than Morse, I'll leave that to personal opinion but have a listen anyway. Blackmore's best stuff is outside of Deep Purple, try Rainbow too.

We could argue who is better Steve or Ritchie but that is just a boring argument that will come to no conclusion. Its really up to you if you want to leave it at that......


As for his tone its a Marshall Major and he probably had a treble booster too ;) BSM make a HS (hornby skewes) style replica that is very good.

^ I assume you've heard the original version on Machine Head as well? That whole album has amazing guitar tone.

Yea I have. I think that on the live in Japan album, his tone's much better than in the studio on Machine Head.

Morse can top Blackmore now theses days. Blackmore hasn't been doing anything. And Morse couldn't have writen "Highway Star" or "Woman From Tokyo", etc. because Blackmore had already created the guitar part for those songs when Morse was just starting his music career. Blackmore couldn't ever writen "Rapture of the Deep" or "Money Talks". Anyhow this is my oppinion and I prefere the Mark VII group because of Gillan's (the best singer) voice and a new sound to the guitar area by Morse with more distortion.
Blackmore hasn't been doing anything. Have you heard "Blackmore's Night" which he has done for 10 years and most of that work absolutely top the work of Deep Purple Mk VII and Mk VIII

Morse couldn't have written "Highway Star" and Blackmore couldn't have written "Rapture of the Deep" because the other wrote it. Oh my god you must be kidding! Is that really true?

I prefer the Mk II because of Gillan (their best singer) and mainly thanks to Blackmore's and Lord's music.

Thats exactly what I though too Danne, but I looked it up on the highwaystar and yep, it really is true. I couldnt beleive it myself! In fact I still cant..... :confused:


I also think Blackmore has amazing tone, but I also beleive it kept on getting better through time. Now days its as superb as ever. The man has always had a good ear, even from the old gibson days he was starting to change pickups, rumor is, that he nailed them on :p:

But surprisingly the tone from MiJ was pretty much stock, hardly the case now. He had a few little inbetweens between the guitar and amp but the real stuff started to happen when Dawk got involved. He is also quite high up on the mix too btw ;)

It's truly unbelievable. We need to get some investigators to solve this problem imitiately! In fact I'm gonna do some research on it now. Wish me luck, I might never come back! :p:

That truly is an honourable and heroic gesture. I hope you can find an end to the mystery once and for all. If you dont make it back I will be sure to have a staute built in your honour and also make a special DP day where Morse and Blackmore fans will unite and pay their respects and also ponder how Morse didnt write Woman From Tokyo. Good luck brave Sir Danne, your hard work will be appriciated by many!! :D :D

At parts. Some songs I prefer from Made in Japan while others I prefer from Machine Head.

I love the solo from Machine Head for Highway Star, and would take it any day over the live version.

Heäs probably the best organ player in Rock history.

I really like his and Blackmore's guitar vs organ duels. Can only think of Speed King for the moment but I think you get the point.

He's just really innovative and he makes organ/keys not seem to nerdy.

Child in Time and Highway Star had the two best duels.

Questioooon!

I'm sure as all of you know, the third album that was released by Deep Purple (mk1) back in 1969 used a painting by Bosch entitled The Garden of Earthly Delights as the album cover, and the part of the painting that was used on the cover is called "The Hell". I was wondering if anyone knew why they chose this particular painting and especially why "The Hell" section on their cover? Is there a reason for this? I'm pretty sure they were not trying to represent or give out an unwanted image for the band at that point... right? Any help at all will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

I might just go with greatest hits. My friend had a Deep Purple song on his iPod and I played it in his car, he didn't even know what it was. It was like 10 minutes long I think it was called Child in Me....something like that, the solo was insane.

Child in Time is the name of that track. I would suggest going with Machine Head first, then working your way back from there.

Why does anyone chose anything?

its either 1. Ritchie/someone in the band liked/wanted it (even Jon maybe)
or 2. the record company wanted it (maybe they thought it suited it or just plain wanted to use it because they can like DTC)

Im not sure how it would matter either way???

Why do you ask?

Deep Purple are amazing. Too bad theyre only really known for Smoke on the Water. My person fave songs are probably Burn, Highway Star, and Child in Time.

I honestly hate Greatest Hits... I highly recommended buying (or downloading, if you're short on money) albums such as Machine Head or Deep Purple In Rock for studio albums (to start with at least), and Made in Japan as a good live album to start with.

Research purposes. I'm trying to find out if there is any reason behind the painting and why they chose it as their album cover. Other examples would be... Black Sabbath's "The Last Supper", In Flames' "Clayman" album (with the Vitruvian Man on the album cover), Spinal Tap's "Intravenus de Milo" (with Venus de Milo on the cover).

I wouldn't say a greatest hits wold be that bad if you want to get into a band. You get to hear their most famous songs.

Though I agree on Machine Head, In Rock and Made in Japan

Yes, but with many bands, their most famous songs aren't always representative of how they sound overall.

Besides, who hasn't heard most of Deep Purple's famous songs? :p:
