Purple have to be "very very very" good in the studio, they have to produce a classic studio album next, the one that will turn everything around. They have to do it past, coz if they wait three years people will lose interest and they have to try a new producer I think. That's my opinion.



What do you base any of this on????

When they make the album of their lives, if they ever do, just what element do you think will solidify it in the history books, concerning great albums?
It's a huge buisness, they are but one band, among thousands and thousands, in an industry that forgets more about whats good, on a daily basis, than any of us will ever know... Purple are a tiny part of the buisness they are in, and thats the sad reality of the matter.(no spin Randy, just straight pain)

And since when have you heard or seen them live lately? I've been archiving the tour through digital documents, and if they give MOR anything like what Europe just witnessed, then trust me, they have plenty to offer, some territories in fact, were blown away by them, it's not over by a longshot, I can care less what anyone thinks about that.
I get more and more excited everyday about them, and I don't look forward to seeing them on the tour at all, they won't be here till sometime next year, and all I'm thinking of at the moment, is trying to swing Montreux, but if I don't make any shows, I still have the best seat in the house, and proof to me, they played their current best, in the last 5 months...

(don't let a stupid choice of promoters for the Australian shows, destroy any faith you have left, the guy's an idiot... and ROTD suffers from outside producer overkill, and commercial pressure, which seemed to result in fake stretching, otherwise it contains great qualities)

Round 1 (Ding!!!)

Larry "Holmes" Dude "vs" Randy "Turpin" Dude

Yep, I know commercial will be harder now, due to the fact they are older. The band should be better in older videos, the late 90s and early 2000s, take away the sight, listen to the sound. The guitar sucks man, Gillan is having a hard time singin', the lyrics sometimes is not complete, I think he forgot it man. Gillan is better in the 90s, this is the effect of marathon touring Bruce, ooops, no I mean Larry. emoticon emoticon You know wat I'm sayin'????

Age will make you smarter and more experienced, but it won't make you faster or stronger, you know wat I'm sayin'????

Few singer is getting better in rock & roll with age, especially when he is as busy as Gillan, but I'll admit that his voice on studio is still great and still one of the best. You know wat I'm sayin'????

By the way "Purpendicular" is a commercial failure, but it's great, it's a classic, it's fantastic, it's one my treasured possession!!! That's wat I'm talking about, you know wat I'm sayin'??? emoticon

Well put Mr. GM.! I am looking very forward to seeing DP live. I just caught a video of them performing live in Europe earlier this year and it sounded kick-ass!! I will definitely see them when they play in the US. Hell I feel almost as exicited when I first saw them in Cleveland in 1972!!!
