Deep Purple!!! :D

36 posts in this topic

Re: Deep Purple!!! :D Awesome band, I really hate they are often written off as just another hard rock band from the 70's when they were the ones pioneering the faster side of heavy metal that would later be made famous by bands like Judas Priest and Riot.

Re: Deep Purple!!! :D

and Ritchie Blackmoore's guitar playing coupled with Jon Lord's keyboard playing' date=' how is that "just another hard rock band"[/quote'] Because people are morons. Heavy metal this many years after its inception has evolved way past Deep Purple's sound, so shortsighted revisionist idiots have declared that they are not metal because they don't sound like today's metal. It's probably the most backwards fucked up logic I've ever heard, it's like saying that Chuck Berry isn't rock and roll because he doesn't sound anything like Nickelback.

Re: Deep Purple!!! :D They've had more line-ups than a world record-holding pornstar, but most of those line ups have been class. An often overlooked gem is the Purpendicular album. Cannot stop playing that CD. And, of course, Gillan (with John McCoy/Colin Towns/Mick Underwood) was also a great band. Great fun. Just cannot stick Coverdale, though Burn is a great album.

indoor venue unfortunately unlike the AC/DC show from about three years ago which was outdoor and did have people driving to the area around the show to hear it, my ex-girlfriends folks could hear the concert and they live 3km from where the concert was held

nah indoor is great when the weather sucks as it did when I saw Metallica, that was a great show, they played two songs from Death Magnetic, one from the entire era Black album to st. anger (Sad But True) and everything else was from the first four albums

Re: Deep Purple!!! :D I prefer indoor, but I typically don't go to big enough shows to justify outdoor. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

AC/DC was big enough and Metallica would have been but the venue (a sports stadium) was being revamped so capacity was well down, AC/DC had seventy thousand people in the stadium and probably thirty thousand more who could actually hear it, Metallica had forty thousand as will Deep Purple

Re: Deep Purple!!! :D I think the biggest show I've ever seen was Iron Maiden, which was outdoor to my dismay. The only other shows I've seen in arenas were Judas Priest with Anthrax, Slayer with Megadeth and Anthrax, Gigantour with Opeth, Overkill, Arch Enemy, and Megadeth, and Tool with Isis. The majority of shows I see are at bars and smaller venues, which is better for sound and experience. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

I don't get to enough shows, it's too hard with my limited vision getting to and from gigs and finding people with similar taste to me, plus we Aussies don't get many metal bands head our way and especially in my home state, normally bands come down here and play Melbourne and Sydney very rarely they'll play Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide (my home town) so unless it's a major show like Maiden or Priest or Sabbath there's no chance of me going interstate to see a gig
