Deep Purple's Glover Believes Blackmore Inspired Metal Movement
Bassist Glover says that founding Purple member Blackmore - who last played with the group in 1993 - was someone who bands in the "second wave of rock" learned from.
Glover tells Goldmine: "Ritchie was an amazing guitarist, way ahead of his time. And I think that informed a lot of the heavy metal players later on. The second wave of rock, if you like. The Judas Priests and the Saxons and so on. It still goes on. Purple was the stone thrown into the pond and the ripples are still moving out." Read more here.
