Top 100 Hard Rock Groups - #3 Deep Purple

deep purple, ritchie blackmore

"Come On... Come On... Come On... Let's Go Space Truckin'!!! " yells The Rocker Chic as I forward through the tracks of a "Best Of Deep Purple" CD until I get to the track containing the chant she can't get out of her head! It's the same chant you have heard at the 1,000's of Purple concerts since the track first found its way to the airwaves back in 1972. The same, of course, can be said at any guitar store when you hear the "Dum Dum Dum, Dum Dum Da Dum..." of Smoke On The Water from any Guitar "Dummy" learning how to play for the first time! You can include me in this group of people for the past 40 years or so! Ha! (Read my full Deep Purple band review HERE!)
