The Purple reunion frenzy

Posted: September 16, 2014 in Classic Rock, Deep Purple Family, Magazines


I was well positioned to be one of the prime movers in our media when Deep Purple reunited back in 1984. Not only had I interviewed Jon Lord just a couple of weeks before the reunion (he had hinted at it, you can find the interview on this blog), but everybody understood that I knew what I was talking about as an ex fan club editor (this was in between clubs). Photographer Michael Johansson and myself had a field day, it was a lot of fun. Johansson had the shots in three of these articles. I don´t have these available to me right now but if memory serves me right these are articles from Recension and Poppis (1984 and 1985).

Good Days.
