May 26, 1973: Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water” was released as a single. The song was based on the true story of how someone had fired a flare gun into the ceiling of the Casino in Montreux, Switzerland during a concert byFrank Zappa And The Mothers Of Invention. The resulting fire destroyed the building where Deep Purple was set to record a live album the next day. The single would reach #5 in the US and #21 in the UK.
