The song that kept on moving

Glenn Hughes spoke to the Talking Metal podcast, promoting his Classic Deep Purple Live tour and paying tribute to Aretha Franklin. In a bit of historical anecdotage, he revealed that You Keep on Moving was originally written in 1973 during Burn sessions, but never made it to that album, nor the next one.

The interview starts at about 2 minutes into the show and continues for almost 20 minutes:

In other Glenn news, VIP upgrade packages are available for his UK tour that starts in October.

    I, for one, am glad it made it onto at least one album.

    The answer is plain & simple… RB rejected the song because there was no writing credit in it for him. He wasn’t going to allow those 2 new kids on the block to show him how to do things…
    Gotta show ’em who’s boss ya know!.

    Blackwood @ 7 – I doubt that, Stormbringer has a few tracks without a Blackmore credit. Although by then he was losing interest fast, were as at the time of Burn he was still keen. Having said that, maybe when he first heard it he thought, hmmmmm, this isn’t looking too good for what I originally envisaged’? Hit the delete button.
    Too ‘Hughesy’ perhaps.
    The song is a very ‘soul’ inspired song also, a good song it is, but not a Blackmore type of tune at all me thinks! Cheers.
