Deep Purple show no signs of slowing down

14th March 2017

You’ve more than likely heard of Deep Purple if you’re into popular music. They’re the riff lords behind the slightly over-played “Smoke on the Water”, that song literally anybody can play. Next year marks their 50th anniversary, but it doesn’t look like they’ll be stopping quite yet.

Deep Purple’s 20th album Infinite sees its release next month and will be followed by a huge world tour. The Long Goodbye Tour is quite a deceiving name really, considering bassist Roger Glover thinks there is still “at least an album or two” left in them before any retirement plans are made. The 71-year-old has gone on to explain:

“We’re not planning on ending any time soon, but we’re also aware that we’re closer to the end than we are at the beginning.

“We don’t want to specify when, because none of us emotionally can actually face it.

“Health, age are the only concerns really, as far as motivation is concerned none of us want it to end.

“I can’t imagine what it would be like without Purple, it’s been a huge part of my life, bigger than huge, so the hole after it would be even bigger, but it’s going to happen.”

“We’ve had such a good time in the studio, the last two [albums] have really been a joy to be working on, especially with Bob Ezrin [producer for Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Kiss].”

“We seem to have hit another seam of creativity that’s very much like Deep Purple but nothing like Deep Purple, nothing like our past.”

Excellent news for any Purple fans. The Long Goodbye UK leg starts in November this year, but until then enjoy their new album Infinitie – out 7th April.
