Deep Purple legendary classic "Smoke On The Water" now has an official music video, which has been released to promote the Super Deluxe Edition of their "Machine Head" album.

The new video is set to a 6-minute-plus 2024 remix of the song by Dweezil Zappa who shared in the liner notes, "It's one of those records where I think, 'How did they come up with this?' It's got classical influences in the guitar and the keyboard, but then it's got the blues and there's little bits of funkiness. And you have this singer who has the most killer voice. All these things come together in a way where it doesn't sound like commercial music, yet people got really excited about it. It's a fascinating recipe." (continue)

Sammy Hagar and his former Van Halen bandmate and Michael Anthony have released a new video where they discuss the top live songs from their classic "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" album.

Hagar had this to say, "This was the first record we actually took our time to write and record. I think pound for a pound, or song for a song, it might be my favorite. Andy Johns engineered this record and sonically it's big & fat. We worked harder on this record than any record, not because it was a struggle, but because we wanted to make (as Andy Johns said) the definitive Van Halen record. It especially sounds good really loud." (continue)
