Deep Purple Legend of rock
Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. Along with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, they are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock. They were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's loudest band, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Blackmore suggested a new name: Deep Purple, which was his grandmother's favorite song.
Steve Morse (born July 28, 1954, Hamilton, Ohio, USA)Superb guitarist and bandleader in his own right, Steve went to Miami University to study classical and jazz guitar. He formed The Dixie Dregs in 1975 with bassist Andy West. Between 1982 and 1986, readers of ‘Guitar Player’ magazine voted Steve Morse ‘Best Guitarist’ for five years in a row. Drawn back to music, he joined Deep Purple as lead guitarist in 1994, although he maintains his own recording band.
Ian Gillan (born Hounslow, Middlesex, August 19, 1945)Ian joined Deep Purple from Episode Six in 1969.The band’s most famous anthem ‘Smoke On The Water’ emphasises his ability to deliver a lyric with smouldering intensity and rock’n’roll exuberance.Ian is presently working on several projects, both as a writer and vocalist, with a book under construction and a new solo album taking shape.
