Bio / info
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, although some band members believe that their music cannot be categorised as belonging to any one genre. The band's earliest music was psychedelic and proto-progressive, though in the 70s they moved to a more mainstream rock style. Original guitarist Ritchie Blackmore would later form Blackmore's Night; keyboard player Jon Lord is regarded as one of the originators of the heavy, distorted organ tone that became standard in rock bands; singer Ian Gillan joined Black Sabbath for a time; bassist Roger Glover was later in Rainbow; singer David Coverdale (Gillan's replacement) went on to form Whitesnake; guitarist Tommy Bolin briefly replaced Blackmore in the 70s. Later incarnations of the band have featured Steve Morse, Joe Satriani, and Don Airey at various times.
