Jon Lord (born 9 June 1941, Leicester, England; keyboards), Nick simper (R. 3 November 1945, Southall, England; bass) and Ritchie Blackmore (born 14 April 1945, Weston, England; guitar) joined him under the guise of “Roundabout”. However, Chris dumped a few days. Played a little in the team Dave Curtis (bass) and Bobby Woodman (drums). Soon they were replaced by members of the “Maze” Rod Evans (born 19 January 1947, Edinburgh, Scotland. vocals) and Ian Paice (born 29 June 1948, Nottingham, England; drums). After a brief Scandinavian tour, the quintet took the name “Deep purple” and began recording the first album made under the influence of the American team “Vanilla Fudge”. “Shades Of Deep Purple”, recorded some eighteen hours, looked experimental and rough. However, the group has received some notoriety in the States, though the houses about them, no one knew.
The albums “The Book Of Taliesyn” and “Deep Purple” contained good composition of type “Kentucky Woman” “River Deep – Mountain High” and “April”. On these disks started to show the good cooperation of Lord and Blackmore. In July of 1969 Evans and simper were removed from the team, and in their place from “Episode Six” came Ian Gillan (born 19 August 1945, Hounslow, England; vocals) and Roger Glover (born 30 November 1945, Brecon, Wales; bass). In this “classic” lineup “Deep purple” recorded the grandiose “Concerto For Group And Orchestra” in company with the London Philharmonic orchestra.
The Orthodox successor of this album “Deep purple in rock” made the band the leading hard-rock band. Connection sound on of Lord and Blackmore guitar, complemented by the powerful vocals of Gillan, create a “signature” sound, “Deep Purple”. This disc, as well as two follow-up album “Fireball” and “Machine head” became the leaders of the charts. The song “Smoke on the water” from the latter became a kind of hallmark of the group. The live album “Made in Japan” received platinum status, but relations became more and more intense and after the release of “Who Do We Think We Are” the team leaving Gillan and Glover. At the urging of Blackmore, the group continues to work and filled up by David Coverdale (born 22 September 1951, Saltburn, England; vocals) and Glenn Hughes (born 21 August 1952, Cannock, England; bass, ex-“Trapeze”). The albums “Burn” and “Stormbringer” though, and was in the top ten, but already professed a different style with a Blues accent.
Blackmore was very unhappy and in may 1975, decided to leave the band. Then he founded the project “Rainbow”. A few months after the departure of Blackmore in the group invited guitarist Tommy Bolin (born 18 April 1951, Sioux city, USA,. On 4 December 1976, Miami, USA), which manifested itself in a number of American jazz-rock groups. However, his style was incompatible with the hard rock sound of Deep purple and in addition he is seriously interested in drugs. In the British tour of 1976, was abandoned, and the musicians announced the dissolution of the group.
The Coverdale has created the project “Whitesnake”, Paice and Lord joined Tony Ashton in the “Paice, Ashton, Lord”, and a few months after the collapse of the “Deep purple” from a heroin overdose, died, Bolin. In the next few years out various collections of the group. In 1984 at the initiative of Gillan, the team is going in its classic lineup: Gillan, Lord, Paice, Glover, Blackmore; and recorded a new CD “Perfect Strangers”. The album soon became platinum and Deep purple went on a long world tour. However, after the release of “House Of Blue Light” again began the showdown between Gillan and Blackmore after the live album “Nobody’s Perfect” Gillan was forced to leave again. For the next album “Slaves And Masters” Blackmore invited the ex-singer of “Rainbow” Joe Lynn Turner. However, under pressure from the rest of the musicians Turner was dismissed, and the group was back Gillan.
But soon has not sustained Blackmore, and on the eve of a Japanese tour left the group. Urgently been invited to its place of Joe Satriani. But the “Deep purple” didn’t manage to record a single album. To work on another wild “Purpendicular” in 1996 was invited by the American Steve Morse (guitar), who played in “Kansas” and “Dixie Dregs”. Since then, the team and works in this format. In September 1999, in the London hall “Royal Albert Hall” was held jubilee concerts of Deep Purple with the London Symphony orchestra, which was attended by a number of well-known performers.
