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.
