Whitesnake 2014

Whitesnake have released a live video for their take on Deep Purple classic The Gypsy. Watch it below.

It appears the band’s latest release, The Purple Album, designed as a tribute to his former band after an attempted reunion with Ritchie Blackmore failed to take place.

Forntman David Coverdale recently said, “Everyone did their homework, and every performance is done respectfully in honor of Deep Purple’s musicians. There were respectful nods to the original musicians throughout the album, and it has come out delightfully. It’s a tribute to Jon Lord, Ian Paice and Ritchie Blackmore, who gave me my break in the first place.”

The Purple Album was released in May 18th.

    Here’s a ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME question: If Deep Purple finally gets in this time, which band members get inducted? The MK II lineup only? MK II & MK III only? Everybody that’s ever recorded with the band? I don’t understand and also don’t trust the idiots in charge of the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME to do what’s best.

      James, I’m pretty sure that the current line-up will be the only ones. Blackmore has made it easier for everyone by already stating he won’t show up. As for others, the only past member Gillan, Glover and Paice are friendly with (so far as can be determined) is Joe Satriani, but he never recorded with them. Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Simper and Evans all represent periods when Gillan or Glover or both were absent or fired by members mostly now gone (Lord, Blackmore).
      I’m sure there will be recognition given to the departed Jon Lord, but I’d be surprised if they even said anything about Tommy Bolin.
      Still, I’d love to see Rod Evans end his thirty-five year disappearance by showing up with his bogus Deep Purple again!
