Deep Purple started out as a session band for Searchers drummer, Chris Curtis who intended for the group to be called “Roundabout,” based on the idea was that members would get on and off. Jon Lord, the classically trained keyboardist, was the first member to be recruited. Then followed bassist Nick Simper, Carlo Little, the drummer and guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. When Chris Curtis was dropped from the project, Lord and Blackmore replaced Little with Bobby Woodman. When the group found its lead vocalist in Rod Evans, it also recruited Ian Paice as the new drummer because Woodman was no longer pleased with the sound of the band. Lord, Blackmore, Simper, Evans and Paice made the inaugural lineup. Deep Purple, formed in 1968 in Hertfordshire England, has been through a lot of lineup changes, some of which have worked out very well for the group. The second lineup of Ian Gillian (vocals), Lord, Blackmore, Paice, and Roger Glover (bass), which was active between 1969 and 1973, was the most commercially successful. The band had a hiatus between 1976 and 1984 when members went on to pursue successful solo careers. Currently, the band consists of Ian Paice, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Steve Morse and Don Airey. Initially, the band started out in progressive rock, but in 1970, it took a new approach towards heavy metal. Pye Studios released the band’s debut album, Shades of Deep Purple, in 1968. The group’s cover of “Hush” by Joe South did well in the U.S., peaking at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Deep Purple’s Shades LP reached number 24 on Billboard’s pop album charts. Black Night, released in 1970 was the song that finally placed the band in the UK Top Ten as it reached No 2 on the UK Singles Chart. Deep Purple has twenty albums, including the latest one, Infinite, due for release in April 2017, which will also be accompanied by the Long Goodbye Tour.
