Bob and Ray, and a Danish kennel

Paicey continues his Tales from the bar with a new batch of tall tales of one nascent band that eventually became known as Deep Purple.

And be sure to check out the overpriced merchandise™ for the Drumtribe channel. All proceeds are promised to go towards production of more videos.

    Love the Tales from the Bar! I know the whole story in different versions but it’s great to get some details I have never heard before. Could listen to this for hours!

    Deeves Hall was on the market last year.
    No mention of its place in rock history.

    There is also the barn
    And two cottages.

    George Martin says:

    What’s really ironic about the history of Deep Purple is this: Paicey, Lord and Blackmore have all said at different times the idea of having a band called Roundabout and having other musicians come and go like getting on and off a roundabout is ridiculous and can never work. If you think about it Deep Purple is a roundabout. A 5 man band with 13 members, 14 if you count Satch. I think it does work if the music is great and it is. Long live Deep Purple!

    @Beatles Mastermind: True observation! No line up with Blackers lasted more than a few years. Morse has stabilized the band.

    But I have always viewed line up changes within DP with goodwill. In their absence there would have been no In Rock, no Burn, no Come Taste The Band, no Slaves & Masters, no Purpendicular, no Bananas – and I treasure each one of those albums as a part of DP’s rich history.

    It may be that mr. Paice has forgotten more than he can remember, but what he does remember is everytime a joy to listen to. I can’t wait for the next episode. The book simply has to come.

    Dr. Bob says:

    I saw Episode 6 and was expecting another nascent band that eventually became known as Deep Purple.

    Jet Auto Jerry says:

    Might as well change the name “Rainbow” to “Roundabout” then. At least Purple kept the same lineup for more than one album “MOST” of the time (CTTB / S&M being the exceptions).

    Henrik says:

    The managers were Coletta, Edwards and Hire.

    Why Paice won’t mention them, is beyond me.

    Every DP fan know this.
