    Glover’s right, that sports and music were the two big entertainment interests in the 1960s & 1970s, certainly in the United States. Sports are even bigger nowadays, but music has died on the vine. The torch didn’t get passed to the millennials or ‘X’ generations the way it had been to earlier generations. There are many reasons for that, which most of us Baby Boomers and older know all too well. Fortunately, even though it’s all largely in the past now, it is chronicled forever on albums and CDs. And, by the way, hats off to teenagers like Jadyn Rylee and very young adults like Sina Doering who are keeping it alive by not only playing the old songs afresh, but also creating with new collaborations. Deep Purple deserves credit for the same.

    que d’articles pour ne rien dire si ce n’est que les albums de deep purple depuis 1993 sont tr√©s ennuyeux et plats!

    #1 I don’t that I agree that music has died down since the 60s & 70s. The music industry has morphed and music has evolved. Music is still huge, just not in a style that most Deep Purple fans like.
