There's been so many combined original members' deaths and other departures and personnel turnovers I'd consider the band touring now as more of a "tribute" band than anything else. ;)

 

Should perhaps call themselves, "KEEP PURPLE". :D;)

I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!

The current lineup is original members (at least original from the Smoke On The Water era) are lead singer Ian Gillan, drummer Ian Paice, and bassist Roger Glover. Steve Morse is on guitar (Ritchie Blackmore is no longer welcome) and Don Airey is on keyboards (the legendary Jon Lord died a few years ago).
I rock; therefore, I am.

I saw them in the summer of 14 in California. They put on a very good show. There's no doubt that Steve Morse is a great guitarist but for me Ritchie Blackmore was irreplaceable.

I have had a strangely hard time tracking down DP`s music since Steve joined-don`t really know song or album titles off the top of my head.

I thought at first he would take the band in a very different direction-love his music but RB and himself are different guitarists. I like what I heard live. When I get time I want to hear what they are doing on some recordings.

Steve is one of the very few great players I got to meet and talk with, albeit briefly.

Same old surprises, brand new cliches-
