What's left to be said about Deep Purple? Together with Led Zeppelin, The Who and Black Sabbath, they are considered the "fathers" of heavy rock and to some, the creators of heavy metal. One of the symbols of the seventies, or as they often say... a legend. The line up called MK2 (Blackmore-Lord-Paice-Gillan-Glover) released albums that are milestones of rock: "In Rock", "Machine Head" and "Fireball". Gillan and Glover left after the release of "Who Do We Think We Are". Deep Purple decided to continue and entered one of the most controversial, exciting and extreme phases of their career. Back then unknown vocalist David Coverdale (later superstar of his own band Whitesnake) and bass player Glenn Hughes joined the band. The following albums "Burn" and "Stormbringer" showed they could maintain the same levels of the previous incarnation of the band and reached the "classic album status". When Blackmore decided to leave the band, they surprisingly decided to continue, recruiting guitarist Tommy Bolin. They released the great album "Come Taste The Band", and played in front of immensely large audiences at the peak of their glamourous lives... until excesses affected the band and Bolin tragically died of a heroin overdose. Deep Purple were then officially split up. In 1984 Deep Purple reformed with the original line-up, featuring Gillan and Glover yet although a lot had happened since then, the band is still touring the world and remains one of the most important names in rock history. It would be a big mistake to ignore the great music that Deep Purple produced between 1972 and 1976.
