Deep Purple – Machine Head
Written by megarock on April 14, 2019
English guitarist and songwriter Ritchie Blackmore from Deep Purple, who had the 1970 UK No.2 single 'Black Night' and the 1973 US No.4 single 'Smoke On The Water'. Deep Purple were listed in the 1975 Guinness Book of World Records as "the globe's loudest band" for a 1972 concert at London's Rainbow Theatre. Blackmore later formed Rainbow who had the 1981 hit single 'I Surrender'. More on Deep Purple: https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/cl…/deep-purple-machine-head/
These days, perhaps, Machine Head’s stature has become somewhat tainted by the overbearing familiarity of Smoke On The Water. As well as being Deep Purple’s best-known song it’s also become a bit of a bugbear.
