December words from Roger

Riger Glover, Quebec City, Canada, July 29, 2007

Roger Glover has posted this year’s round-up on his website:

Of all the tours we completed this year, the reception we received in France was exceptional. In Paris, Gérard, our promoter, presented each of us with a “Gold Ticket” – a great looking plaque commemorating our box office achievement – we sold more tickets than any other band this year. I sincerely thank him and his staff. I’ve never seen anything like it before but it seems symptomatic of the way the business, at least our business, has changed. Live music rules!

    “…more tickets than any other band this year.”

    They also work harder than just about any other band.

    My favourite band Deep Purple became farce.Stop this nonsense-touring.
    Save your legend boys.
    One off Mk2 concert to celebrate 4o Anniversary would be enough.

    If rest of the world was like Roger, then this planet would be the paradise we all dream of.
    Roger, you are second to none, and I can just say as “Stoffer” We ALL thank YOU for being the person you are.

    I look forward to the next album from the most smiling band in the world.

    To you, rest of the band, the people from Thames Talents and all Deep Purple fans around the planet
    Merry Christmas & happy New Year

    We should all say “thank you” to Deep Purple, as the band should know that we do not take them and their grueling efforts for granted. Our generations have been blessed with the music, insight, and humility of Deep Purple’s bandmates. They offer themselves to us with the greatest rock music efforts of our times. From who else can we hear such dependable virtuosity of performance, lyrical intrigue (serious and humorous), and an embracing of humanity (even with its faults)?

    I had the privilege of seeing 6 shows in this last tour in 5 different countries. The memories of the shows will last as long as me. Moreover, without the band I would not have experienced the thrills of meeting so many different people and experiencing so many different cultures. Also, for personal reasons, one show became a wonderful turning point in the lives of me and my wife of 20 years.

    A “thank you” can be superficial, like when you pass through the checkout line at the grocery store. But, a “thank you” means much more when it is spoken from the heart for another having truly made a difference in your life.

    To Don, Ian, Ian, Roger, and Steve: THANK YOU.

    I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy whatever your special “thank you” holiday is. May you and your families have the best of fortunes in the upcoming year.
