20 years ago

Posted: June 5, 2018 in Classic Rock, Cool stuff, Deep Purple Family, General

Deep Purple released “Abandon” 20 years ago this week, the second album to feature new guitarist Steve Morse and the last for keyboard maestro Jon Lord. It was a period of hard work but this lineup did what they had to do and they managed to remain at a decent level in most markets. They certainly reconquered a lot of hearts and minds and apart from Lord (RIP) they are still at it. Purple could have failed after the exit of Ritchie Blackmore in 1993 but they did not. Too much talent around for that to happen.
