In Loving Memory


Released several years ago after the death of original Deep Purple keyboard player Jon Lord, ‘Now What’ acts as a fine tribute (I think), to one of Leicester’s finest and most talented sons. It was also the first Purple album to obtain a respectable chart position in the UK for many years, and is full of great hard rock sounds, equal in my view to their most well know tracks in the early 1970s’. We could be seeing the end of one of the greatest rock bands ever, for as I write, the rumors of the band retiring for good are widespread. However, their back catalogue (of all the different lineups) is well worth investigating.!

I was born and raised in Leicester UK, in October 1953. Dad played the piano and our house was rich in musical diversity. Big band sounds of the 1930's and 1940's, rock & roll sounds from the 1950's and 1960's all had equal play time on the gramophone, and tuning into Radios Luxembourg and Caroline, Heaven on Earth. Music has always played a huge part of my life, and still does.
