DEEP PURPLE - InTheStudio Celebrates 35th Anniversary Of Perfect Strangers Album; IAN GILLAN, ROGER GLOVER Audio Interview
December 10, 2019, a year ago
North American syndicated rock radio show and website, InTheStudio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands, celebrates the 35th anniversary of Deep Purple's classic album, Perfect Strangers.
Says Host Redbeard: "It was a fateful day in 1984 when the original members of Deep Purple, the Mark II lineup which gave the world Deep Purple In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head, Who Do We Think We Are, and Made In Japan, reconvened after eleven long years apart. My guests this week, Deep Purple bass player Roger Glover and singer/ lyricist Ian Gillan, were both in attendance along with founding guitarist brooding Ritchie Blackmore, industrial-strength drummer Ian Paice, and godfather of the heavy Hammond organ, Jon Lord. No minders, managers, or handlers were invited. Anything but Perfect Strangers, the hit album which would emerge first, that historic meeting thirty-five years ago ignited something which the subsequent departure… again… of Blackmore, and even the death of Jon Lord in 2012, continues for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Famers even to this day."
