Biography
Formed in Hertford, England in 1968, the band Deep Purple survived what one journalist described as "a seemingly endless series of lineup changes and a dramatic mid-career shift from grandiose progressive rock to ear-shattering heavy metal to emerge as a true institution…" The list of artists who performed in the band is immense and includes Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Ian Gillian, Tommy Bolin, and many more. The founders were Blackmore, Rod Evans, Nick Simper, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. Their sound evolved over time. Their debut album was a smash hit in the U.S., but not the UK, and it was with their third, self-title album, that they attained worldwide recognition. Reformed in 1984, the band is technically still performing.
