Deep Purple Legend Sick of Metallica Comparisons

(Rock News Desk) Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover is sick of rock bands being compared to Metallica when they decide to work with orchestral instruments.

Glover's outfit have just started a tour with a 28-piece orchestra, but it's not their first foray into such waters they recorded then-keyboardist Jon Lord's Concerto for Group and Orchestra in 1969.

"When you mention rock bands and orchestras everyone says, 'Oh, like Metallica,'" the bassist says. "It sticks in my throat a little bit nothing against Metallica, but bands have been doing it way before Metallica." more rock news
