Deep Purple Deep Sixed by EMI

(Blabbermouth) Garry Sharpe-Young of Rockdetector.com recently conducted an interview with DEEP PURPLE bassist Roger Glover. An excerpt from the chat follows:

Rockdetector.com: "Rapture of the Deep" marks a significant career step for the band, breaking away from EMI. It's hard to believe they got so complacent with a band like DEEP PURPLE.

Roger Glover: "We've always been in and out of love with EMI, so it was long overdue for a change. As it worked out, circumstances forced our hand but it really has turned out for the best for DEEP PURPLE. It was a total mystery to me why EMI decided not to continue the relationship."[see full story for more] - Click here for the Full Story
