Another one bites the dust. Never owned a Deep Purple record but I used to enjoy their music years ago, and Smoke On The Water is probably one of the most "classics" of them all. I bet you there's nobody who has ever learned the guitar who doesn't know the chords from this one. I'm at that age (which we all eventually get too) where half the musicians I really really loved listening too are "no more". With regard to Jon Lord, pancreatic cancer is deadly. An old friend of mine has it now and is telling anyone who'll listen "get yourself checked regularly and catch it early so that at least you've got got a chance".

Machine head was on High rotation in our family home, used to love playing Lazy real loud.

I once managed to fall asleep at a purple concert, main line up reformation tour at the old olympic pool in melbourne at 1985 or so. I had gone too hard too early.

Anyway the intro to Strange Kind Of Woman woke me up again.

RIP John

We used to listen to Free at school and I don't think I've heard them since. Happy memory

I still play Alright Now with cover band Prime Numbers. Also play in Quasimodo with a Free/Paul Rodgers freak. PR's album Muddy Water Blues is well worth a listen. Still a great voice, one I aspired to in my younger days, with limited success. The Randwick show was a cracker, and all for $3 as I recall.

if anyone has a bigpond t-box, in the live shows section is a concert of JON LORD AND HOOCHIE COOCHIE live at the basement. some great blues,im not sure who the other band members are but barnsey has a guest spot.
the randwick show was a bit of a purple haze as i recall......

ACB, Out of interest I just googled Prime Numbers and got the mathematical stuff and the googled quasimodo and got some touring info. Why don't you link some of your music to this thread. I'd love to see it..

Yep, that was one of my first too..
Around that time the 'Rolling Stones' did a big show at Randwick Racecourse as well.
They made a grand entrance in coaches drawn by white horses..

And of course there was 'Led Zeppelin' at the Sydney Showground - I think? in January 1973,
they opened with the as yet unreleased 'Immigrant Song' from III and blew the party away..
When they opened the gates, we waited from 11am till 2:30pm with no support band, and it was a truly memorable day.

Great loss. Saw them a few years ago in Paris at Olympia. Managed to get a seat upstairs where we were able to stand in the aisles and have a bit of a jig but downstairs was a huge moshpit packed with kids. Just a great night. There goes my top 3 list!
