Crime in the press

powerplay magazine issue 247

Issue 247, dated Dec 2021/Jan 2022, of the UK’s Powerplay magazine features Deep Purple on the cover with a Turning to Crime feature inside.

“We like to do a thing called ‘Purpleising’,” says Ian Gillan about Deep Purple’s latest release, their first ever whole album of cover songs, “and in that I mean that musically the band get to stretch out and expand the songs, and the arrangements are fantastic, and I’ve enjoyed listening to this record more than most.”

Copy of the magazine can also be ordered from the virtual Newsstand, they ship worldwide.

Not quite a cover story, but the band is also featured in issue 2021/11 of the Sweden Rock Magazine. It includes a 2-page interview with Roger Glover.

And last, but not least, the band is also featured in 2022/01 issue of the German Playboy magazine, with an interview with Roger and Big Ian. Roger’s quote of the day: “I think if we weren’t musicians, we would be a comedy team like Monty Python”.

    Is Playboy still a real tangible magazine in Germany, or anywhere for that matter? Here in the states it went all online a little while back, after it tried a no nudity phase (tastefully teasing photos) for a year or so before going back to full “Playboy” nudity as a Quarterly for maybe another year.
