That bongo player though

music legends deep purple special cover

The Music Legends magazine has put out in September a Deep Purple special. The writeup would probably be nothing new to any THS regular, and it’s riddled with wrong dates (California Jam ostensibly took place in 1971, and Gillan was arguing with Blackmore on their US tour of 1974). It is also far from coherent history of the band as it jumps from the departure of Chris Curtis straight to the demise of Mark II. Of a mild interest can be the pictures — particularly, that bongo player the band recruited, as displayed on page 8.

Check it out online, if you wish, but don’t spend your money on it.

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    And after that everybody will say the world is getting smarter. Anyway I am too old to argue. Everything is approximation, stupidity and who cares as long as it’s business and they can make money out of it. By the way my mother language is french so if my english is not too “smart “, sorry.
    Long live DP family.
    Cheers.

    I happen to be at Cal Jam and it was 1974. Deep Purple was my favorite band of the seventies and still one of my favs. The sun was going down on a scorcher of a day and Purple took the stage and tore it up! What a great show! I can you tube cal jam and relive that day over and over !
