Once listed as the world’s loudest band in the Guinness Book of World Records, Deep Purple has an international reputation for producing earsplitting and intensely exciting music. Drawing on rare archive footage, radio performances from around the globe, in-depth interviews with Glenn Hughes and Nick Simper, and archive recordings of Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord, Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, and the late Tommy Bolin, this is the incredible story of the band’s formation, rise to fame, and struggle to cope with the pressures of stardom and internal conflict. The accompanying DVDs provide a hard-hitting review of Deep Purple on stage and on film, covering everything from the halcyon years of formation in 1967 through its varied lineups, breakups, and reunions up to the present day. Fully illustrated with previously unseen images, this is the independent, frank, and dynamic account of the men and the music behind the legendary band.

Jerry Bloom is the author of Black Knight, the biography of Ritchie Blackmore, and the editor of More Black than Purple magazine.
