Back in July Sverige Radio published an interview with Roger glover, done at his home in Switzerland. Roger baked a banana bread and talked about what he wants to do when he grows up. The interview itself is in English and starts about 2’15” into the clip.

Bonus: Roger’s banana bread recipe

  • 1.25 dl butter
  • 2.5 dl sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-4 ripe bananas
  • 3.5 dl wheat flour (he used whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 175C.

Mash bananas in a bowl, add butter warmed to the room temperature, eggs and sugar. Mix well. Add flour and baking soda and mix to a smooth paste. Add vanilla extract. You can also add crushed walnuts or other nuts and stir. Pour the batter into a greased baking pan and bake 40-50 minutes in the middle of the oven. Probe with a stick towards the end of baking. The bread is ready when the stick is dry. Allow to cool and remove bread from the pan.

ps. 1 dl = 100 ml = 3.4 fl oz


Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    Roger has been always obsessed with Bananas. After all he was the one who took the photo of a heap of Bannas in the Far East in 2001 and pushed for it to be the CD cover of the famous Classic DP Bannasa album.

    Bananas, the stupidest album name and cover ever. Deep Purple unworthy!

    That’s what I call a comfy atmosphere when doing an interview. Chillin’, bakin’, talkin’, yeah …
