From Bosch to Marsden

Several new Purple related items appeared in European press.

Mint magazine 2020-05 (#36)

German magazine Mint dedicates no less than 40 pages to all things Purple in its May 2020 issue (#36). Among them:

  • complete album guide;
  • feature on Machine Head;
  • Ian Gillan on Vanilla Fudge;
  • Steve Morse on The Well-Tempered Synthesizer;
  • Ian Paice on Gene Krupa;
  • profile of Didi Zill;
  • feature on the third album cover by renowned Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch.

The issue can be ordered for €8 inside or €9 outside Germany via their website. Caveat: it’s all in German, naturlich.

Sweden Rock 04-2020 cover

Sweden Rock Magazine has a 14 page Ian Paice & Deep Purple feature in its latest issue (#4/2020).


Also in Sweden, Rock’n’Roll Magazine has a 7-page DP feature and a fresh interview with Ian Paice in its April 2020 issue.

Last, but not least, Classic Rock magazine has a 6 page Bernie Marsden feature in the April 2020 issue (#274). That’s the one with Rush: The making of Permanent Waves as the cover story. Bernie talks about his career, starting with the dayjob as a hairdresser to placate his parents, his days in UFO, PAL, Whitesnake, etc.

Thanks to Deep Purple Tour Page and our editor emeritus Benny Holmström for the heads up.

    Nick Soveiko says:

    Marcus: my guess is the press slots were booked well in advance, but when release date was pushed to august, so was the publicity campaign. and page space still had to be filled somehow.

    Thought Steve Morse was the guitar player in Purple.
    Kind of confirms my thoughts.
    What the press decids to show is Pictures with Jon lord and Ritchie Blackmore
    Kind of sad when you think of it.
    To live in the shadow of there legecy.
    Tho the band co-writed many of there songs.
    The sound and the main force of the 3 Blackie Lord and Pacie.has never been the same since the split up of mk3. Mk 4 did a good studio album, but with a whery new sound and not so much keyboard oriented at all.
    Maybe a name change of the band would have been pretty much in place already there
    Perfect Strangers was a god album with at least 4 or 5 decent songs on it Battle rages on the same.
    The two inbeetwen not so much.
    The differrence beetwen for example, every MK 2 album was that every song hade its own beat. And especially the drums you could mute every other instrument and you coulld still say what song it was. In every intr so forth.
    But on for example perfect strangers it felt like paicey hade to hold back and almost play like he was in ACDC
    That wouldent have been to bad if it would have been that kind of songs all throuhg.
    What i wanted to say was if i listen to the new tracks and also of the last 2 albums they dont sound anything of what i expact to hear from a band named Deep Purple and they should have changed the name long time ago.
    When for example, i like Steve morse but he wouldent have insist to call his new band Dixie dregs so if they dont want to, they dont att all have to live up to that. Flying Colours they are a superband that should had gone for it a long time ago. At least Deep Whatewer should have done it.
    So they didnt have to cope with all those song Gillan cant sing anymoore.
    Im not bitter for havin to sitt in because of the Corona shit.
    Im just a Purple lover that love that Dirty old strat sound withe grit the funkeyness (Blackie forgive me) No one came is superfunky by the way he he.
    And that distorted owerdriven Hammond that could be like a gospel or a jazzorgan just to explod in to an inferno love that.
    That was Deep Purple.
    This is whery different to what i discribed still good but for me not Purple
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojHRoKzQwfE. im Sorry but the Magazines ill guess Thinks the same because its allways a Picture with Ritchie and lord thats in the front of the Magazines.
