Dance on the thunder again

Stormbringer cover art looks like hand drawn (because it is), but it is actually based on one of the most famous photos in the history of storm chasing. The dramatic picture (shown above) was taken on July 8th, 1927 (or 1928, depending on whom you believe), near Jasper, Minnesota, by a schoolgirl called Lucille Handberg. […]

This may look like yet another cover band, but what’s interesting about this one, is that it is made of students and teachers of a school in Oskarshamn, Sweden.

Still Life

Proud father Roger writes: My daughter Gillian Glover has a new CD out. It’s called Still Life With Music. If you’ve heard any of my last two solo recordings then you will know what an original voice she has. If you’ve heard her debut album, Red Handed, then you will also know that she has […]

The age debate from a different angle

St.Petersburg based Sobaka.ru took a slightly unorthodox approach to the photo report of a Deep Purple concert. In its dead tree incarnation Sobaka.ru is a glossy ‘lifestyle’ magazine, so they concentrated on people in the audience instead of exclusivity of what’s happening on stage.
