We’re just musicians

A very amusing and offbeat interview with Roger taken probably in the summer of 2007 when the band was touring North America and stopped in Chicago. Roger handles the reporter (who had one too many) with his usual class and eloquence.

Their website also has transcripts of two lengthy and rather interesting interviews with Roger and Steve (not the same as in the above footage).

Roger Glover talks with Ken Payne about:
• Writing music with the band as a unit
• Ritchie Blackmore’s departure (In the middle of a tour!)
• Jamming with Steve Morse
• Being a producer
• How he met Ronnie James Dio

An in-depth conversation between Steve Morse and Kim Katz on:
• Being a pilot
• Joining Deep Purple
• Steve’s new project with Sarah Spencer
• Stem cell treatment
• Staging a protest in high school
• Guitarist awards
• An unusually cool wedding

Read them both at Buzznews.net.

Thanks to Andrey Gusenkov for spotting this.

    There should just be a Youtube partner link here, designated to Deep Purple, for those who don’t get wind of things over there. LOL! She’s no better than “Radio Chick” who DJ’s on the east coast and happens to be Carmine Appice’s girlfriend… they’re about the same speed.

    Every once in a while, I’m sure they find this more interesting than talking about the same old stuff… or do they?[sic]

    A handsome and very amiable reporter. Untypical indeed.:DDD
    Roger has a big sense of humour as usual.
