August 4, 2013, 4 years ago
DEEP PURPLE"s German record label, earMusic, has posted footage from the band's appearance at the Wacken Open Air 2013, that took place this weekend (August 1st -3rd) in Wacken, Germany:
BW&BK;'s Metal Tim Henderson, who was in attendance for the festivities, checked in with his take on Deep Purple's performance:"Must admit that Deep Purple seem to be a bizarre fit at Wacken, but when you step back and view the hard rock/heavy family tree there are numerous roots that need to be recognized and praised, no matter how ancient they may seen and the British icons took matters into their own hands with a wealthy catalog that's second to none. And the not-so-recent addition of guitarist Steve Morse and keyboard maestro Don Airey, sees that classic Deep Purple sound elevated to a different groove, while longtime members Ian Gillan, Roger Glover and Ian Paice just soak in all of the glory they deserve."
