Sad news. Been a Deep Purple fan for over 20 years.

I'll have to crank 'Child In Time' in his memory.

Along with the Groundhogs, Deep Purple were amongst my earliest "heroes" as an impressionable youth.

Crying My first rock album was a taped copy (ahem) of Machine Head, a school friend gave me when I was 15. I was hooked on Deep Purple, rock and metal immediately. Mrs scene is also a rock ewe, and Whitesnake are her favourite, so she's a bit sad too.

Truly a legend of rock. RIP and rock on!

RIP indeed.  He came to be interviewd by Gramophone when I was still there and I had to scour the building to shake him by the hand.  Very nice to me he was, bearing in mind I acted like a gibbering little boy.
