Deep Purple Album Title Gets Criticized
Associated Press

NEW YORK - Deep Purple fans are going bananas over the title of the new album. Guitarist Steve Morse writes on his web site the album is titled "Bananas." He says some deep-rooted fans are up in arms and are actually asking for them to change the title.

He says the title comes from Ian Gillan commenting in his proper English accent that Morse had gone bananas with an instrumental exchange with keyboardist Don Airey. Morse says anything that makes the band laugh usually sticks. However, Morse says Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover claims the title came from a photo of a skinny guy riding a bike loaded with hundreds of bananas they thought was funny.

Either way, Morse says everyone in the group is happy with the album as it has a variety of material on it and two guitar oriented instrumentals. Morse is also pleased that reviewers have been receiving the new album well so far. "Bananas" is due in August.
