Deep Purple Quotes
It's really an orchestral piece featuring a group and it was quite revolutionary at the time and it in fact, it kicked Deep Purple off as a name in Great Britain because it made all the newspapers. Everyone was writing about us. And there was some confusion as to what kind of band we were after that, which is why Deep Purple in Rock is such a hard unbending album of really furious hard heavy rock. Heavy metal hadn't been invented at that point.
Well, we were not a happy band. There was always an edginess to our relationship, even in the early days, but it was edginess that gave birth to a lot of creativity as well. But the edginess kind of took over and it became destructive rather than creative. And so, without knowing it really, we've spent many years kind of going down the tubes and it wasn't really until Richie left and Steve joined that we kind of found ourselves again and we've spent the last ten years actually kind of building up the bands reputation because I think the band actually suffered a great deal from what happened in the late '80s and early '90s.
