    Glenn Hughes has the time/potential/resources/financial backing/ideas/will/motivation etc. to make a new album for which, apparently, there is enough demand
    Ditto Jon Lord.
    Ditto Ian Gillan.
    Ditto Don Airey.
    Ditto Steve Morse.
    Ditto Man In Black.
    Ditto David Coverdale.
    Ditto (almost) anybody else.
    Apart from a certain band who aren’t able to gather themselves together and write some new music. Instead of non-stop touring – THIS, they HAVE to do.
    I will NOT go to any of Deep Purple this year’s concerts – unless they make a new album. Even if they come to play at my home town. Enough’s enough.

    OK, now howzabout a little USA action? Actually, if I had my wish, I’d rather they recorded a new disc most of all.

    Let’s hope that they will be performing in support of a new album this Fall. Prolific writers are they, they created Bananas in a 3 week time frame. Take 3-6 months off, write, record, and enjoy some rest & relaxation….

    I was surprised to read Tracy endorse my outings over the years.

    He said why on earth , if they are so really HAPPY together, why did they not overwhelm us with NEW Purple music?

    Its too late now…..

    #4, Iam a cup half full and not empty kind of pool (snooker) shooter. I may or may not be wrong as the days and months progress, but I would put money on new material this year. One has to leave HAPPY together out of the equation. There remains genuine love since end ’93 when That Black Guy took his hike. There remains variables that I don’t even care to be aware of.

    Did not have a chance to speak with My Main Man on the west coast last Saturday night, but I suspect I would have actually been given at least a tad more positive news on said new material. All ages gig, and my pal and I had his two youngsters in tow. Had to get them home with respect to an ever approaching late night. They were mesmermized by the way…..



    By the bye, The Trio kicked the shet out of The Coach House that night. The roof was shaking. Big time!

    Youngsters are easily impressed.
    I know because I was……would be.

    I’ve seen him at the Coach House before too, it could’ve been better but it was very good.

    I agree with #1
    I live in Belgium, and I will NOT go to see them !!!
    It is true: Enough is enough 🙁

    I’m a lot abroad these days, and although I always follows THS, I don’n have enough time to write .
    But now, I want especially to message again, there has NOT been any kind of celebration for ‘the 40-year existance’.

    Not ONE effort to get a reunion for ALL over the years…from ALL line-up’s, in peace and joy and proudness celebrating and honnouring this Majestic band…
    That would have been something ALL FANS would like. And for such an occacion, I believe for ‘Blackers as well as ‘Morsers’!!!

    Or if that would be really impossible, why not a few wonderful , forever remaining shows with the Deep Purple founders Paicey, Lord and Blackmore.

    All this is NOW still possible,but not for long anymore and this in a many different ways.

    And we could have more!
    DVD’s , true memorabilia,from such special shows , and ALSO from their new shows andthe ecxpected new material !
    That would be something to hurry for to buy!
    There would be NEW DP stuff in their NEW DP Store…

    Could all fans not vote and beg again for one of this options…diverse options for the diverse taste of ALL fans! 🙂

    It is NOW or NEVER ,the time won’t wait 😉

    Still open for surprises……

    Dont expect anything ofcourse…

    NEVER will expect another classic again by this outfit but something like PURPENDICULAR might be nice to listen to…..once a year.
