Istria Deep Purple

In March 1968, a group was created consisting of Ritchie Blackmore – lead guitar, John Lord – organ, backing vocals, Rod Evans – vocals, Nikki Simper – bass, backing vocals, Jan Pais – drums. At the suggestion of Richie, they decided to name the new group “Deep Purple”. This name was taken from an old song that Richie’s grandmother loved to listen to.

Ritchie Blackmore (Ritchie Blackmore) – was born in the English province on April 14, 1945. Already in his youth, he demonstrated his mastery of guitar, which caused the desire of numerous beginner groups in England to have such a solo guitarist in his group. John Lord (Jon Lord) – was born in England (Leicester) on June 9, 1941 and already from childhood began to play the piano, and later began to take lessons on this instrument.

They created their own universe, a mechanical electronic universe, and they are the gods of this music, and maybe, by the way, non-living gods. During a Russian tour of the band, Ralph Hutter, one of the founders of the KRAFTWERK band, came to the Silver Rain radio station. After distributing several autographs and agreeing to a couple of photos, Ralph went to the studio to give an interview to the leading radio station Vladimir Orlov and answer questions from the audience.

VLADIMIR ORLOV: In KRAFTWERK music, you pay special attention, first of all, to the timbre of the synthesizer, to the coloring of your music. You know, when I listen to you, I feel something so warm in my stomach. And from here the first question: is this some kind of musical trick of graduates of the conservatory; maybe – pressure on the subconscious or the result of some kind of musical research?
