I raise a glass

Firstly, thank you for all the kind words you sent. I’ve been knocked sideways by the great reaction to Now What?! I kind of knew it was good but you never really know until people get to hear it and are interested enough to send feedback. I raise a glass to you.

I’m now back home after a memorable festival tour with DP in Morocco, Bulgaria, Georgia and Romania, where yet again I’m reminded of the power of music and how it connects all of us. Listening to music is one of my favourite occupations. I was randomly investigating my music library the other night when I came across a song that called forth a memory.

    I just checked out your link. Love the song and the sound. Once again, so much music, so little time! It’s really a shame that performances like this slip through the cracks and go unnoticed to so many seeking sounds. Thanks for sharing!

    Now What
    Very good album, suprising me… Keyboards are very present and it’s a very good thing ! Guitars, Bass, Drums are naturally excellent ! And thank you to Mr Gillan for singing that way, …I’m very pround to be a Purple fan since…so many years ! I’ ve seen you 15 times ! and I’ll be there the following concert in Belgium with my son Julien (10 years…) . My son have seen you one time and love especially “Hush” ” And “the battle rages on ” If you can play “hell to pray” in concert, he’ll never forget it, i Think !. Roger, you can be proud of the energy you put in the band !
    I know everybody in the band are professionnal musicians, so, continue to keep the faith in Deep Purple ! We need you !!!

    Great to hear the rockin’ new record, Roger and watch the hot new VINCENT PRICE video!!! Saw you blow the roof off the Sydney Convention Centre in March from the front row as my birthday present and I will never ever ever ever forget it…even after 30 years of DP concerts! You are my fave rock band, bar none, and you haven’t disappointed me yet, not once.

    But who is the marketing bonehead who put the sticker on NOW WHAT that says “PERFECT STRANGERS MEETS MADE IN JAPAN”!!?????? Fire them, please…

    ….and keep on rockin’. Viva Deep Purple!

    I’ve met Roger before. Really one of the most down-to-Earth guys on the planet, rock and roll or otherwise.

    Right back atcha Mr. Glover. I tip my cup to you and the rest of the band for going through the process and headache to offer up such an outstanding album. Well worth the wait. Your attraction to so many different styles and types of music as with your Purple band mates is the core to way you guys have maintained such a long existence in the biz and a true testament toward your creative abilities. This broad range of musical taste shows up on every Purple album which are each and of their own and each stands alone. No 2 Purple albums are alike, but yet the similarity still remains that make them unmistakably ?ur?!e.
