Roger Glover did a series of phone-in interviews on American radio. These appear to have been arranged to promote the Hall of Fame induction broadcast due April 30 on US cable channel HBO.

He soldiered on through some “Mr Grover, Mr Gillian” moments without losing his usual wit and charm even for a second.

    Roger has patience – the last interviewer was a disrespectful asshole. Asked Roger who the best lead singer was – Roger rightfully called the question ridiculous because it is ridiculous. Then the asshole launched into being told not to ask about Ritchie Blackmore only to ask another ridiculous question. What a moron. Great responses Roger! Thank You for posting The Highway Star!

    I remember once seeing a documentary on a country musician who said he did not pay his band for playing, he paid them for hauling their equipment around the country.

    I think doing these stupid interviews probably counts double.
