Deep Purple Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although their musical approach changed over the years. Originally formed as a progressive rock band, the band's sound shifted to hard rock in 1970, and in 2013 the band began exploring progressive metal. Deep Purple, together with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, have been referred to as the "unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the early to mid-Seventies". They 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, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, including 8.5 million certified units in the US.Deep Purple have seen several line-up changes and an eight-year hiatus (1976–1984). The 1968–1976 line-ups are commonly labelled Mark I, II, III and IV. Their second and most commercially successful line-up featured Ian Gillan (vocals), Jon Lord (organ), Roger Glover (bass), Ian Paice (drums), and Ritchie Blackmore (guitar). This line-up was active from 1969 to 1973, and was revived from 1984 to 1989, and again from 1992 to 1993. The band achieved more modest success in the intervening periods between 1968 and 1969 with the line-up including Rod Evans (vocals) and Nick Simper (bass, backing vocals), between 1974 and 1976 (Tommy Bolin replacing Blackmore in 1975) with the line-up including David Coverdale (vocals) and Glenn Hughes (bass, vocals), and between 1989 and 1992 with the line-up including Joe Lynn Turner (vocals). The band's line-up (currently featuring Ian Gillan, and guitarist Steve Morse from 1994) has been much more stable in recent years, although organist Jon Lord's retirement from the band in 2002 (being succeeded by Don Airey) left Ian Paice as the only original Deep Purple member still in the band.Deep Purple were ranked number 22 on VH1's Greatest Artists of Hard Rock programme and a British radio station Planet Rock poll ranked them 5th among the "most influential bands ever". At the 2011 Classic Rock Awards in London, they received the Innovator Award. In October 2012, Deep Purple were nominated for the first time for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but were not voted in the following March. In October 2013, the band was announced as a Hall of Fame nominee for a second time, but again was not voted in.

#Fact
1The cover of their album "Stormbringer" is based on a 1927 photograph of a tornado touching down in Jasper, Minnesota. The same photograph appears on the covers of Miles Davis's "Bitches Brew" and Siouxsie and the Banshees's "Tinderbox".
2In the early 1970s the band was signed to play a one-night concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, which turned into a nightmare. The stadium they were to play in only held 25,000 seats, but the promoters sold 125,000 tickets. When fans who couldn't get a seat started to riot, the police and the army were sent in to put it down, and--according to the band--went wild, unleashing attack dogs on the crowd and beating and clubbing everyone in sight. In addition, the promoters told the band that they were also to play another concert the next night, which they had not been scheduled for (or paid for). As if that wasn't bad enough, they returned to their hotel and were informed that one of their bodyguards had been killed in an "accidental" fall down an elevator shaft. The band was suspicious because they had seen the bodyguard arguing with a local man earlier that day. When they went to the police and said they believed the man had been murdered, they found themselves arrested as accomplices after the fact to murder (which the police at first insisted hadn't happened). They were told that the murder charges would be dropped if they performed at their unscheduled, and unpaid-for, concert the next night. They agreed, but as a gesture of defiance they played the concert with their heads down, never once looking at or speaking to the audience.
3The group originally opened for Cream on Cream's farewell tour, but were removed after only three shows. They were replaced by the bands Taste and Yes.
4When the Mark II lineup reunited in 1984, front man Ian Gillan refused to sing material from the three albums the band had recorded with David Coverdale.
5The only member of the group to play on every album is drummer Ian Paice.
6Ian Gillan has been a member of the band at three different points of time--1969-1973, 1984-1987 and 1993-present.
7Several members of the band have gone onto successful solo careers and careers in other bands. Ian Gillan formed the Ian Gillan Band, later simply called Gillan and briefly sang for Black Sabbath. Ritchie Blackmore formed Rainbow, David Coverdale formed Whitesnake and Roger Glover has produced albums for various artists, including "Sin After Sin", Judas Priest's first album on a major label.
8Ritchie Blackmore met Ronnie James Dio when Dio's band Elf served as the group's opening act. When Blackmore left Purple in 1975, he formed Rainbow around Elf, minus their guitarist.
9Formed in 1968 in Hertford, England.
10Mentioned in the song "Life Is a Rock But the Radio Rolled Me" by Reunion.
11Members have included Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Paice, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, Steve Morse, Nick Simper, Rod Evans, David Coverdale, Glenn V. Hughes III, Tommy Bolin, Joe Lynn Turner, Don Airey
