How Rog sees it

Roger Glover has posted his customary end-of-the year message to the world: A hale and hearty December to all. I need to start by thanking those who made the effort to attend a concert or two this year, by DP or any other band – without you it would be a far lonelier place all […]

It won’t be much longer

Roger Glover visited Hamburg for a very much closed doors preview of the now ‘nearly there’, but still unnamed new Deep Purple album at the Chameleon Studios in Dulsberg. Bild.de carried a short report, and Roger also recorded a video message for the fans. (watch inside)

It’s bad news week

Roger Glover pays tribute to the recently deceased Lemmy, iconic BBC DJ Ed Stewart, and David Bowie (who managed to turn dying from cancer onto a work of art): It’s said that bad news comes in threes. It did this last week. RIP Lemmy, Ed Stewart and now Bowie. Ashes to ashes. I met Lemmy […]

Who knows where the time goes?

In his customary end-of-the-year address, Roger Glover reminisces on 2015, which for him culminated with a low(-ish) key 50th anniversary reunion of Episode Six (we admit, that one flew completely under our radar). Sandy Denny’s song is as relevant now as it ever was. Steve Miller sang about time slipping into the future. Our Time […]
