    The hour flew by,, for sure.
    Seems Steve thought The Long Goodbye was it.I hear a bit of exasperation in his voice.
    So…..
    Mini-Moog as a lead instrument with the rythmn guitar kinda low in the mix….
    That describes Throw My Bones and Man Alive perfectly.
    The sound of Purple,2020.

    I can’t help but smile at seeing how uncomfortable Steve gets with the high praises he receives before the first question. And he deserves each word.

    Yep, very enjoyable and informative. His perspective on Hush being a party tune is interesting and understandable.

    Been Watching Pete Pardo from Sea Of Tranquility for years on utube, the guy has incredible Knowledge of all music geners. He has just about every album cd there is. It was very cool to see him interview Steve. Enjoyed the part where he describes the differences between Jon and Don. Very enjoyable interview. Thanks Pete.😍.

    @4 DeepOz: As the finale of the Remembering Jon Lord Tribute,Hush is a real party.
    If only Steve & Don could’ve coaxed Rick Wakeman to jam on the Roundabout riff for a while.

    When you play a Minimoog, you’re not automatically a synthesizer guy. It’s one of the most iconic and best sounding keyboard instruments. Jon had a Minimoog model D and Memorymoog on stage with Purple throughout the Perfect Strangers tour. Even if he had kept them around later on everybody would still see him as a Hammond player with some bells and whistles here and there. The Hammond organ is one of the most versatile instruments every created and for sure the no. 1 instrument with keys in Purple.

    Tommy H @ 11- Yes indeed it is a classic instrument. Not sure if you have seen this Wakeman tribute to Bob Moog, a wonderful 8 minute clip it is. Cheers. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/rick-wakeman-praises-favorite-keyboard-moog-documentary-833135/
