Smoke on the Water
The Deep Purple StoryBook - 2004
It is now 35 years since Deep Purple first came together and today - 14 musicians, 17 albums and millions of record sales later - the group remains a monster. This is the first book in 20 years to tell the story of this remarkable band, from their grandiose inception in 1968 to the release of their latest album in 2003. Drawing on candid interviews with band members, associates and fans alike, it traces the group through some of the most turbulent times that any band has survived, placing the band's own music in vivid context and illustrating how they changed rock music for good.
