Now What?! Deep Purple at The Hard Rock Live, Hollywood Florida!
What an amazing Rock & Roll concert it was, Deep Purple delivered the performance the only way they know how, with absolute perfection - EPIC in every sense of this word!!!
I was only 12 years old when I heard Deep Purple for the first time. This incredible band quickly became one of my favorites. I began to follow their music closely and throughout the years accumulated a collection of most, if not all of their albums. I have seen many of their performances and of course admired the original lineup with spectacular talent of Richie Blackmore and the incredible late Jon Lord. Ian Gillan's voice is certainly my favorite, and of a kind. It penetrates your body, mind and spirit down to your soul...simply unforgettable!!! The master duo Roger Glover on bass and Ian Paice on the drums working together in perfect harmony delivering one of the most powerful sounds in Rock & Roll. I loved everything about Deep Purple In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head and Made in Japan, etc.
So now after many years of Deep Purple performances and few lineup changes along the way let's fast forward to 2014. This Rock & Roll mega band comes out on their latest tour, showing their true love and appreciation for their fans. The music lineup includes Steve Morse as the replacement for Richie Blackmore for the last 20 years who's incredible in his own style of playing and the super talented keyboard virtuoso Don Airey as the replacement for late Jon Lord.
Just like all of us, these guys are getting older - But this Rock & Roll band's performance, their sound, and their legacy after 45 years in the music business, carried on through generations and still gives me CHILLS.
If I had to describe DEEP PURPLE in one word, I would say without any hesitation - "BRILLIANT" |,,/
