I agree. Or even some new high profile star or rockstar like Jack White or Jack Black or Dave Grohl or Kelly Clarkson to name but a few. It seems that even these offspring have also been brainwashed by the media. So then they'll even where the same t-shirts that they saw on TV or in magizines. It's also easy to find an AC/DC or LZ t-shirt, but not a DP shirt. Once in awhile you may see someone like Slash with an IN ROCK shirt or Bette Midler in a PS shirt but that's rare as world peace.

Of ocurse Jack Black did have the kids play Smoke on the Water in School of Rock. And Deep Purple was figured prominently in the curriculum...:-)

Although I beleive he gave the keyboard player a Yes album to get rock keyboard playing down....should've been In Rock.

Re: Clearly Quite Absurd


CQA - I really like it. Best mellow DP song since SIFLS. As for DP being on mainstream radio and "popular" I have mixed feelings. I would like them to be recognized but I kind of like the way it is now. The true fans that know them, get to appreciate them that much more. I really don't want to hear them on the radio five times a day or hear people at the office talking about "my band" and how they managed to score tickets for $250.00 per seat. (how selfish of me!)

We already hear the old stuff five times a day...imagine how they'd dominate the airwaves if they played the new stuff. emoticon

True, the old stuff still does get quite a bit of airtime! I think the song MTV says it all. A station does an interview or a concert advert and then they play Hush or SOTW. At least that's all I hear in Massachusetts. They could at least play a new one. I predict someone 20 years old will re-record CQA and the radio stations will play the "great new song" to death!

Re: Clearly Quite Absurd


As with the Stones, whose complaints mirror Gillan's at times but who continue to play an oldie-dominated show, Deep Purple needs to put more new songs in their shows, period, or else they cannot fairly complain about being lumped in with "classic rock" / oldies. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck...Put the songlist where your mouth is, Ian!!! Take some chances! Play SOTW, HS, and Hush, and then make the rest of the show Mork-Morse songs already.

I think he was just mocking what some DJ must have said. However, for the sake of historical accuracy, I shall yield. emoticon
