This review is from: Deep Purple: Photos 1970-2006 | Nummerierte und von Didi Zill handsignierte Sonderausgabe! | Numbered special edition hand signed by Didi Zill! (Hardcover)
For anyone interested, particularly, in the Mark II version of this band this is an essential book.
The simplicity of the Ian Paice's drums, Ritchie making alterations to his Strat with a screwdriver and Jon hunched over his keys in a chilly hotel in Montreux is a far cry from the complicated stage sets and synthesizers, Apples perched on top of programmable keyboards and 'Autotune'. Just listen to what 'Machine Head' sounds like then look at the conditions it was recorded in.
Another nice aspect of these pictures is the number that show Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore smiling at each other. One in particular is notable with Ritchie leaning on Ian's shoulder in mid guitar-vocal duel and they both seem to be staring at the fretboard, thinking 'Where did that note come from?'
If you are a long-term fan this is a great buy!
