Bangalore hits a Purple patch

Bangalore Times has an amusing report about our boys stay in India, including name check on an old time AMDP regular Mahesh Srinivas. Here’s a few excerpts:

Mahesh is part of a team that’s working to ensure the band doesn’t forget their two-day stay here. The hotel where they will be staying is pulling out the stops to make things memorable. From a purple theme at the hotel’s restaurants and bar, to lilac and purple aromatherapy candles, soaps and cosmetics.

Roger Glover, who loves painting abstracts, will find an easel and paints in his room, while sporty Ian Gillan will find the latest sports magazines in his and a sports bike in his porch, says Ritu Chawla, assistant manager, accommodation. “We’re going to download photographs of their family members to frame for their bedside tables, since they’re been on tour for a long time,” she says. Ritu is creating monogrammed robes for them in pure Bangalore silk, as well as silk scarves and stoles. “These will look great even on suits later on,” she says.

We just hope that Indian hospitality is not going over the top. 🙂

Thanks to Mike Garrett for the info.

    Nothing is too good for Deep Purple’s musicians. The biggest shock of this story is they don’t get this treatment everwhere!
