Deep Purple is a British rock band from Hertford, England formed in 1968. Deep Purple is considered one of the pioneer bands of heavy metal and hard rock, although their musical style has changed time and time again over the years. Deep Purple was originally formed as a progressive rock band. Along with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Deep Purple has been referred to as the “unholy trinity of British hard rock and heavy metal in the mid to late seventies”. Although the band has gone through several roster changes over the years, the group with the most commercial success consisted of vocalist Ian Gillan, organist Jon Lord, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, bassist Roger Glover and drummer Ian Paice.
An interesting fact about Deep Purple, in 1975 the Guinness Book of World Records listed Deep Purple as “The Globe’s Loudest Band” for a 1972 concert at London’s Rainbow Theatre. The band has gone on to release a staggering nineteen albums, with their latest released in 2013. Along with nineteen albums, the band has performed in over 25 world tours, not to mention having sold over 100 Million albums worldwide, including over 7.5 Million certified units in the United States.
