earMusic/Edel will start a series of Jon Lord reissues with the release of “Gemini Suite” on November 25, 2016.
The album, recorded at Abbey Road und De Lane Leo Studios with the London Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Malcolm Arnold features performaces by Albert Lee, Yvonne Elliman, Tony Ashton and Jon Lords Deep Purple bandmates Roger Glover and Ian Paice.

DEEP PURPLE — which has been eligible for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for two decades now — will finally enter the Rock Hall as part of the class of 2016. The band's first three lineups are being inducted, including drummer Ian Paice, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, late keyboardist Jon Lord, and separate teams of singers and bassists — Rod Evans and Nick Simper, Ian Gillan and Roger Glover, and David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes.

Writing on his official web site,, Ian said about DEEP PURPLE's 2016 Rock Hall nod: "Putting the past shenanigans to one side, the induction is not — in clear fact — for DEEP PURPLE. It is an arbitrary selection of past members, which excludes Steve Morse and Don Airey; both of whom have been with the living breathing DEEP PURPLE for a very long time.

"Obviously, this is very silly, and so my response is quite simple: 'Thank you very much.'

On September 14, 2002, hard rock pioneers DEEP PURPLE took the stage for a landmark concert at the NEC in Birmingham, England to bid farewell to founding member and keyboard legend Jon Lord.
On August 26, Eagle Rock Entertainment will deliver this very concert with the release of "Live At The NEC" on DVD and digital formats. Previously only available as part of the "Around The World Live" boxed set, this film is being made available for the first time as a standalone DVD.
"Live At The NEC" track listing:
01. Fireball
02. Woman From Tokyo
03. Mary Long
04. Ted The Mechanic
05. Lazy
06. The Well Dressed Guitar
07. When A Blind Man Cries
08. Space Truckin'
09. Keyboard Solo
10. Perfect Strangers
11. Speed King
12. Guitar Solo
13. Smoke On The Water
14. Hush
15. Black Night
16. Highway Star

In an interview he gave to French newspaper “Le Parisien” on July 4th, Ritchie Blackmore told something that all his fans dreamed about, hoped for, and maybe weren’t expecting anymore...

Οι αγαπημένοι του Montreux –δεν νομίζω ότι η πόλη έχει χρησιμοποιηθεί ποτέ σε άλλο τραγούδι πλην του αθάνατου “Smoke On The Water”- επιστρέφουν στον τόπο του εγκλήματος και αυτή τη φορά έχουν μαζί τους και ολόκληρη ορχήστρα, αν και δεν παίζουν το “Concerto…”

Φυσικά, για ένα συγκρότημα μύθο-θρύλο, όπως θέλετε πείτε το δεν υπάρχουν και πολλά να σχολιάσει κανείς, ειδικά όταν πρόκειται για μια μπάντα φτιαγμένη για το σανίδι. Το βαρόμετρο ωστόσο στις συναυλίες των Deep Purple τα τελευταία δέκα και πλέον χρόνια είναι η απόδοση του Ian Gillan. Αυτό είναι το στοιχείο που μπορεί να αλλάξει τα δεδομένα και να κάνει τη διαφορά από ένα απλό καλό live σε ένα εξαιρετικό. Ο 66χρονος τραγουδιστής φαίνεται πως είναι σε μια από τις καλές του βραδιές –τηρουμένων των αναλογιών- γεγονός που μας ανακουφίζει αφού ξέρουμε ότι θα παρακολουθήσουμε ένα καλό show.

Τα υπόλοιπα είναι όπως τα ξέρετε, ή μάλλον όπως τα φαντάζεστε… Paice-Glover-Morse-Airey βγάζουν φλόγες, τα δίνουν όλα και για ακόμη μια φορά εντυπωσιάζουν ακόμα και τα μέλη της Ορχήστρας του Βερολίνου που τους χαζεύουν με θαυμασμό. Στα highlights η επιλογή του “Hard Lovin’ Man” από το “In Rock”, το “No One Came” από το “Fireball”, το “When A Blind Man Cries”, η «μονομαχία» του Don Airey με την ορχήστρα στο σόλο του, που ως συνήθως περνάει από διάφορα άλλα μουσικά θέματα και φυσικά το καθιερωμένο τζαμάρισμα πριν το “Hush” που αυτή τη φορά περιλαμβάνει το “Green Onions” των Booker T G The MG’s.

Στα έξτρα του DVD πέντε συνεντεύξεις με το κάθε μέλος ξεχωριστά όπου ο Ian Gillan αναφέρει αρκετές φορές τον Blackmore και εξηγεί τι σχέση έχουν οι γυναίκες με τα κόνγκας και τους χειριστές κομπρεσέρ…

Rock legends Deep Purple will release their new album, inFinite, the highly anticipated follow-up to their worldwide chart topping album NOW What?!, on April 7th via earMUSIC. “Time For Bedlam”, an up-tempo classic Deep Purple song, has just been made available via a lyric video. “Time For Bedlam” will be available as instant grat as part of the digital album pre-order, as well as on all streaming platforms starting from Thursday, December 15th, midnight worldwide with the physical pre-order of the album to start at the same time.

A limited edition EP for “Time For Bedlam”, with non-album songs and unreleased recordings will hit the shops on February 3rd.
A documentary movie, witnessing the songwriting process and the recording of the album with producer Bob Ezrin, has been produced, allowing for the first time for the fans to be part of the private band member interactions in the studio. The movie will be included in some editions of the album and it will be presented before release in various fan events worldwide.

Here's the link for the lyric video:

In a recent interview with German Rock’n;Roll Reporter Ritchie Blackmore said that he’d be willing to play one more show with Deep Purple for nostalgic reasons. "I think if they would be interested, and our schedules aligned, I would be available for one show — for nostalgic reasons. But I don't think DEEP PURPLE have any interest in that. They have their niche and are not into doing things like that. We are friends and I've doing my music for twenty years, and they're doing their stuff for twenty years. It's probably not likely [to happen]. Also, their management wouldn't like it, even if it was for just one show. Their management wouldn't allow it, I'm sure", the guitarist said. Remember that we have posted an interview we did with Don Airey recently where he told to that the band wouldn’t be interested in a reunion with Blackmore, not even for one show.

Ritchie Blackmore has gotten over his bad feelings about Deep Purple, and he’d play with them again if he was invited, he’s said.
The guitarist co-founded he iconic British outfit in 1968 and played a leading role in all lineups until they split up in 1975. He took part in the reunion of the Mark II band lineup in 1984 but quit in 1993 – and spent many years making negative comments about his former colleagues.
Asked about his feelings for the band now, Blackmore told The Guardian that he “bears no malice” and that he’d agree to work with them if he received an invitation – but he added: “It’s probably not probable, though.”

Drummer Ian Paice of legendary British hard rockers DEEP PURPLE spoke to music journalist Gary Graff about the band's plans to record the follow-up to 2013's "Now What?!" album. He said: "We all come over to your huge country [USA] after the Christmas break. We start around the end of January. We go back into the studio in Nashville with [producer] Bob Ezrin [KISS, PINK FLOYD, PETER GABRIEL, ALICE COOPER, KANSAS]. We had such a great time making the last record that we just want to try and duplicate that the next time around. We've got plenty of material, probably more than we need, but there is a weeding process that, you know, happens when you start listening back in clarity. So, you know, the runts of the litter will be discarded and the best ten or eleven tracks will be worked on."
