1 Composition (1968-69)

(Ritchie Blackmore - guitar Rod Evans - vocals, Jon Lord - keyboards and backing vocals, Ian Paice - drums, Nick Simper - bass guitar and backing vocals)

Established in March - April 1968. in a series of random, but the happy singles, the band played at the level of the requirements of time, inspired by works of the Beatles and Vanilla Fudge. The first album "Shades Of Deep Purple", was recorded for some eighteen hours, looked experimental and rough. Leadership Jon Lord was in this period indisputable that it is easy to notice in the compositions of the next two albums "The Book Of Taliesyn" and "Deep Purple". Music first year of existence, the group did not presage a further evolution to a rigid and aggressive melodies, . but already started the development of many (in consequence of the classical) concert receptions - long instrumentals and unpredictable improvisation,
. The first hit the group - "Hush" - allows her to climb the U.S. charts to 4 th place in Europe as Deep Purple is still not known

. 2 Composition (1969-73)

. (Ritchie Blackmore - guitar Ian Gillan - vocals Roger Glover - bass guitar, Jon Lord - keyboards, Ian Paice - drums)

. Rod Evans and Nick Simper leave the group under pressure from the main trio, who decided to move in new direction
. Appearing on the scene, Ian Gillan and Roger Glover. In autumn 1969,. D. Lord has long-standing dream - he wrote the classical suite performed by the group and the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall. Attempt to connect rock and classical music is contradictory responses, but the group provides a much-needed attention from the press and television. This is the first great success, embodied in the album "Concerto For Group And Orchestra" (September 1969). Strongly grown technically and creatively Blackmore, gradually comes to the fore. Add to this the aggressive vocals Gillan (famous for in 1970. brilliant performance as Jesus in the rock opera "Jesus Christ Superstar"), Glover's solid bass - we're on the threshold of the birth of a new style of. Connection sound body of Lord and Blackmore guitar create, finally, "corporate" sound of Deep Purple. Symbol of what happened coup become the album "Deep Purple In Rock" (June 1970) and the single "Black Night", a group providing leading place in the charts for the year ahead. In an effort to consolidate the commercial success, the managers of groups impose musicians extremely energetic concerts. On the one hand, it gives a great experience, but on the other - a negative impact on the creative process - all the studio work going on in the short breaks between performances. However, the potential of such a high, . that even in this mode, they are able to create three brilliant studio albums ( "Fireball" in September 1971, . "Machine Head" March 1972, . "Who Do We Think We Are" in February 1973) and the concert "Made in Japan" (August 1972), . continues to set standards such records and testimony has become unconditional and indefinite "surrender" of the Japanese music market in front of Deep Purple,
. Charts conquer a series of perennial to this day hits, among them: "Strange Kind Of Woman", "Highway Star", "Smoke On The Water", "Woman From Tokyo". In the summer of 1973, at the very time when the team is on top of success, physical exhaustion and psychological strain caused by continuous tour generate internal strife. The situation explodes - Gillan, and after him, and Glover, leaving the group

. 3 Composition (1973-75)

. (Ritchie Blackmore - guitar David Coverdale - vocals Glenn Hughes - bass guitar and vocals, Jon Lord - keyboards, Ian Paice - drums)

. Blackmore, who became the sole leader, insists on continuing to work in the new composition
. In place of a bass player quickly invited quite famous in the United States Glenn Hughes. As a vocalist, then it can not find the ad. On the play is the recent sell garments David Coverdale, not having any serious experience rock scene. Hard work in the studio and the ability of the new front-Maine yielding results. The first disc of the new composition of the group "Burn" (February 1974), differs from the previous albums, a strong bluesy accent, is a leader in America, whose conquest Blackmore sees its primary purpose. American tour of 1974. were doomed to success and strengthened the notoriety Blackmore, almost did not sleep all the equipment at the grand (over 200 thousand. audience) concert in California. Meanwhile, the commercial success of itself ceased to satisfy Blackmore. Style Deep Purple gradually began to change for him in an inappropriate direction. At a subsequent "Burn" album "Stormbringer" (December 1974) Hughes, a fan of funk and soul, with the support Kaverdeyla began to increasingly intervene in the creation of music. New Blackmore refused to put his name under one of the tracks. Alone in the studio with new partners Blackmore, recorded a solo album (which became the beginning of the history of Rainbow), and by the spring of 1975, when the group gathered in the new world tour, took the decision to leave. Having played a few concerts in Europe, formed the material for a new live album "Made In Europe" (April 1975), Blackmore left Deep Purple in complete uncertainty about the future.

4 Composition (1975-76)

(Tommy Bolin - guitar David Coverdale - vocals, Glenn Hughes bass guitar and vocals, Jon Lord - keyboards, Ian Paice - drums)

Lord and Paice were serious about the final dissolution of the group. However, the pursuit of Hughes and Coverdale remain on a musical Olympus, coupled with the desire of management to preserve "raskruchennnuyu" trademark forced to seek a compromise solution. A few months after the departure of Blackmore in the group invited guitarist Tommy Bolin, who announced himself in a number of American jazz-rock groups. Deep Purple got a fundamentally new sound, but the new guitarist, possessed neither the skill nor the songwriter predecessor. And although the old fans were perplexed, listening to the new album "Come Taste The Band" (October 1975), seemed to have taken place changes had a beneficial effect on the team's work in the studio. However, it was-found inspiration in the eyes of the dying on stage. Moreover, that the public would not accept the replacement Blackmore, it soon became clear that Bolin seriously addicted to drugs and began to lose and playing skills and a sense of reality. British tour in March 1976. was torture for musicians and a huge disappointment for fans. Coverdale, Lord and Paice decided that further this can not. In July 1976 Bolin and Hughes were formally notified of the dissolution of the group. Several months later, Bolin died of an overdose. Album "Last Concert In Japan" (December 1975) was a sad epitaph fourth of Deep Purple.

1975 - 1984 he.

Musicians Deep Purple enthusiastically develop independent projects.

P. Blackmore - Rainbow
I. Ian Gillan - Ian Gillan Band, Gillan, Black Sabbath
P. Glover - Rainbow, solo albums, producer job
D. Lord - PAL (Paice, Ashton, Lord), Whitesnake, solo albums
I. Pace - PAL (Paice, Ashton, Lord), Whitesnake, Gary Moore Band
D. Coverdale - Whitesnake

Each of these projects was in their own interest, but none got close to the significance and popularity of Deep Purple. Thus, the door to the past (or in the future?) Remained open

. 5 Composition (1984-89)

. (Ritchie Blackmore - guitar Ian Gillan - vocals Roger Glover - bass guitar, Jon Lord - keyboards, Ian Paice - drums)

. After several unsuccessful attempts by record companies to gather a group for at least one tour, Gillan initiates vossodineniya Deep Purple in the classical composition
. In March 1984. announced the signing of the contract, and in October had its world premiere album, "Perfect Strangers", quickly became a "platinum". American tour in support of it brought a record fees, and prompted the group to a lengthy world tour. In January 1987. followed by release disc "House Of Blue Light", during the recording of which clashes Gillan and Blackmore similar period of the early 70-ies were resumed with a vengeance. Blackmore reiterated claims to leadership, expressed in the dictatorial imposition of his own ideas to the detriment of the rest. Some songs were reduced to draft notes, as Blackmore refused to come to the studio. The deterioration of the inner atmosphere is also noted for concerts, the repertoire of which Blackmore determined almost single-handedly, adhering to a set of old hits. As a result, a live album "Nobody's Perfect", released in 1988. was only a distant resemblance of the famous "Made In Japan". Under pressure Blackmore Gillan left the group again in the summer of 1989

. 6 Composition (1990-92)

. (Ritchie Blackmore - guitar Roger Glover - bass guitar, Jon Lord - keyboards, Ian Paice - drums, Joe Lynn Turner - vocals)

. In a steady full power Blackmore did not cause much surprise invitation as Deep Purple vocalist Joe Lynn Turner, who worked with Ritchie in the Rainbow
. Released in October 1990. album "Slaves And Masters" looks more like late Rainbow, Deep Purple than. During the recording of their next album on the insistence of management, Joe Lynn Turner, was dismissed as suddenly as it had invited

. 7 Composition (1992-93)

. (Ritchie Blackmore - guitar Ian Gillan - vocals Roger Glover - bass guitar, Jon Lord - keyboards, Ian Paice - drums)

. Desire to better management to sell the next album, the output of which was to coincide with the 25-th anniversary of the group, led to the fact that, contrary to the will of Blackmore, the band once again invited Gillan
. It overwrites the vocals, previously performed by Turner, but make an album in a holistic and fresh as most of the creativity "classical composition" and can not. The appearance in July 1993. "The Battle Rages On" accompanied by a renewed wave of rumors about infighting in Deep Purple. Press willingly uses the eloquent title of the album for his own interpretation of the relationship between musicians. However, that began in the summer of a commemorative 25-year world tour looks promising, the band sounds powerful and smoothly as the best of times. However, the fall of the conflict between Gillan and Blackmore splashed on the pages of newspapers. Sometimes, the relationship being investigated on the stage. Concert "Come Hell Or High Water" and the eponymous video interviews with members of the group, released a year later, gave an idea about the dramatic conclusion of this part of the history of the group. The eve of departure to Japan, where tickets for concerts already completely sold out, Blackmore said his resignation and an effort to make the situation irreversible, destroying a Japanese visa. He continued his career with the restored Rainbow and devotes himself to record the acoustic album

. 8 Composition (1993-94)

. (Ian Gillan - vocals Roger Glover - bass guitar, Jon Lord - keyboards, Ian Paice - drums, Joe Satriani - guitar)

. Faced with huge penalties, which threaten the Japanese promoters, management of Deep Purple is urgently looking for replacement Blackmore
. The choice falls to Joe Satriani, who, while initially invited to speak at Japanese concerts, performed successfully with a group of entire six months, ensuring the success of another and a European tour. Continuation of cooperation, however, faced with complicated legal issues. This composition was the only one, without leaving behind any studio material.

In November 1994,. in the group appears a new guitarist - American Steve Morse, famous in the group "Kansas" and "Dixie Dregs" and released several solo albums. Care Blackmore, first oppressed groups, in practice brought musicians Deep Purple awaited creative freedom. Even at concerts Satriani began to appear in everything from performance of which Richie refused to categorically. Later repertoire seemed more fresh, unusual for Deep Purple. Parish Morse fully restored in the group of long-forgotten the fiery atmosphere of the early 70's, when the foreground was the spontaneity, improvisation, complementarity and mutual understanding. Successful joint work on the stage will allow the new structure to begin studio work in Orlando (Florida). Since then, the group spends a lot of time.
