Word is out that we may see a second edition of Chris Charlesworth´s excellent 1983 book on Deep Purple, “The Illustrated Biography”. No details as yet, but if this is true it will be a huge seller. Chris wrote about the book a while back on his Just Backdated blog along with some hilarious stuff that he experienced in the good company of the Purps back in the day. You will find it here. I asked Jon Lord about his opinion on this book back in 1984, and you can read this interview here on this blog.
This is interesting.
