    Alas!, for all you “Glenn is actually Yoko Ono and split up Deep Purple” conspiracy theorists something to rant about!


    I like it. You try singing like that.

    The Beatles still rules the world as their music is simple yet so enjoyable and will never dies and they proved that you don’t have to take months to write a song. You just go to the studio and record it live.
    I can’t wait to hear Glenn version of ‘Let it be’ without any disrespect to any musician involved

    Adel, I share your enthusiasm but challenge your assertion that ‘their music is simple’! If you try to perform even their apparently simple early stuff, there always seems to be an unexpected complication, something which does not draw attention to itself but which is nevertheless tricky to get right. ‘ A – 123 123 123 12 12 12 BOOM Little darling…’ OK hardly early but you get the point!

    Currently watching the new McCartney 321 doco on Disney streaming of all sites. I am lucky I have a borrowed access to that site only for that one show. Rick Rubin the producer at the mixing console with McCartney going through so many classics, explaining how, where, who & why. Brilliant. Cheers.

    A word of caution everyone: the tracks with Steve and Glenn were on a 2010 release called ‘The Beatles: the rock biographies’. There are a couple of differences for non Purple artists a on my copy Across The Universe is performed by Jackson Brown, Molly Hatchet did Yesterday as well as USSR plus it included Fee Waybill doing Lucy in the Sky and Steve Lukather doing Hey Jude…I’ll stick with my version I think.

    You’re right, Tommy, I wasn’t aware of that release at the time. Shamefully, they didn’t even credit Glenn (or Steve for that matter) on the cover!

    My apologies as I only relied on my ears when I made my comments about the Beatles.
    I don’t play instruments or read music hence I respect your point of you.
    DP has wrote a ‘Simple Song’ but my ears were in shock of what I was hearing!!! It was more of a storm on a calm water.

    @6, Spot on. As a Steve fanatic, when I clicked on to this I thought, wait. I’ve heard this already years ago. Off to my extensive album (CD) rack, and, look what I’ve rediscovered Titles be damned!

    de mieux en mieux décidemment ils sont en mal d’inspiration? A quand un hommage à Pink Floyd, les Rolling Stones,les Bee Gees???

    Rob says:

    No apologies necessary Adel, I wasn’t criticising your post. Apologies from me if that seemed the case! I am no great shakes as a musician tbh! I play bass badly and sing in a local choral society, but have always experienced that ‘wow, what’s going on here?’ feeling when rehearsing a Beatles number. A good little combo, I think they could go far.

    Wow! What a butcher show.

    Jack Bruce contributing to a tribute album 7 years after his death is a bit of a surprise.

    Where is Gillan doing Helter Skelter?

  15. 15
    Tommy D says:

    Terence (14) Gillan (the band) did Helter Skelter on the Magic album when it was reissued on CD with 8 bonus tracks (the Bernie Marsden composition, South Africa and a version of Smokestack Lightning were also ‘new’) – is this the one you mean or have I missed something?

    The tracks with GH and Morse and some others are the same of another Beatles Tribute called Abbey Road : Tribute to the Beatles, released in 2009.
