A Twist In The Tale

Posted: February 13, 2013 in Classic Rock, Deep Purple Family, Magazines, Retrofuture


It was 10 years ago now (February 2003) that I published the very last issue of DEEP PURPLE FOREVER (32) and launched the new title SLICE which was already in from the printers. It was my way of having some fun in a broader sense, but I still kept Deep Purple (as the cover suggests) as a priority for the pages of SLICE and the future publications as well. SLICE morphed into RETROFUTURE eventually (2010) but the idea is the same. Anything goes.

Today Deep Purple (Overseas) plug this blog on Facebook and the traffic is quite impressive as I write this (287 visitors per hour as I write this), so I would like to take this opportunity to say Hello to all the fans of Deep Purple out there who pops by now. Thank you for your interest.

The Deep Purple Family will always be part of this blog since my love for these musicians will never go away. But as with SLICE and RETROFUTURE, anything goes. Trinkelbonker is what it is, take it or leave it.

As for the year 2003, it was one hell of a year, I recall the workload which was intense to say the least (especially for a hobby). I´m proud of the legacy, not many have done what I´ve done. And the memories are priceless.

This is what I´ll celebrate with RETROFUTURE 6 later in 2013, as this will be my 100th publication since 1978. There will be a party, you can bet on it.
