* {{Plagiarism}}: The frontman of the group, Ian Gillan, admitted that "Child in Time" plagiarized "Bombay Calling" by It's a Beautiful Day.
** "Bombay Calling"? A Bollywood music director plagiarised the opening / ending of the song, with a different song in the middle instead of the guitar solo, and without the nightmarish ending sequence (it's a light and fluffy song).

After Ian Gillan quit, the band struggled to find a replacement vocalist. Blackmore recruited American Joe Lynn Turner, the former vocalist of Blackmore's band, Rainbow. Lord and Paice were dissatisfied with Turner, and record label pressure eventually resulted in Turner's dismissal and the return of Gillan in 1992. Though short-lived, this lineup strayed a bit closer to AOR, similar to latter-day Rainbow.

While not considered a legitimate lineup of Deep Purple, this strange incident in rock history should be noted. In 1980, an unscrupulous management company tried to recruit Nick Simper and Rod Evans to be part of a "bogus" Deep Purple with no connection to the official (and defunct) Deep Purple. Simper refused to participate, but Evans signed on to tour with a woefully inadequate band of studio musicians. Angry audiences rioted when they realized they'd been duped into paying to see a faux Deep Purple. Evans was sued for his part in the debacle, and vanished from the music industry in disgrace (although he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016 as a member of Deep Purple, Evans did not attend the ceremony).

Very little is still publicly known about this band and the only recording available is a bootleg of Smoke on the Water.

** Ian Gillan pulls them off routinely, period. Even in his sixties, the man can wail. Not for nothing he's called the [[RedBaron Silvervoice]].

* MundaneMadeAwesome: "Smoke on the Water". One of the most epic riffs in rock history, dramatic arrangement, tasty harmonies. But you can boil down its lyrical content to: "We went to Switzerland to make a recording, but a fire broke out in the venue we were planning to use the day before we were scheduled to start. Thanks to the prompt action of venue staff, there were no serious casualties. Then we moved to a different venue, and our recording schedule was not materially affected."

Despite only lasting for little over a year, Deep Purple Mk. I produced three albums and a single that remains one of their biggest hits, "Hush". This lineup was dissolved after Evans and Simper were fired in favor of Episode Six's Gillan and Glover.

Despite only lasting for little over a year, Deep Purple Mk. I produced three albums and a single that remains one of their biggest hits, "Hush". This lineup was dissolved after Evans and Simper were fired in favor of Episode Six's Gillan and Glover. This lineup mostly played Psychedelic Rock and Progressive Rock.



Often considered the 'classic' Deep Purple lineup, Mk. II was formed when Ritchie Blackmore decided to fire Evans and Simper from the Mk. I lineup, and asked a musician acquaintance named Mick Underwood for ideas for replacements. Underwood, curiously, suggested the singer and bassist of his own band, Episode Six, by the names of Ian Gillan and Roger Glover. Gillan had recently recorded the part of Jesus on the original concept album for ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar'' when he got the Deep Purple gig. Although the band produced such classics as "Child in Time", "Highway Star", and their best known song, "Smoke on the Water", Mk. II suffered from the fraught relationship between Gillan and Blackmore. Gillan and Glover opted to leave the band (or were driven out) in 1973. Mark II would reunite in 1984, but Gillan and Blackmore proved no more able to work together than they had eleven years before (in one notable incident, Blackmore smashed a plate of spaghetti into Gillan's face). Blackmore quit Deep Purple for good in 1993.

Blackmore quit Deep Purple for good in 1993. This lineup was instrumental in the creation of Heavy Metal, and experimented with early neoclassical and speed metal elements.



The band recruited bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes from another well-known British band, Trapeze, but Blackmore sought a vocalist with a more bluesy voice to be the frontman. Frustrated by attempts to recruit Paul Rodgers (of Music/{{Free}} and Music/BadCompany), Deep Purple ended up selecting an unknown singer named David Coverdale from a pile of submitted tapes. This is the lineup that played at the infamous California Jam concert where Blackmore attacked the cameraman with his guitar and set off an explosion on part of the stage. Blackmore walked out on the band in 1975, at which point Deep Purple made the fateful choice to go on without him.

Blackmore walked out on the band in 1975, at which point Deep Purple made the fateful choice to go on without him. This lineup started out playing the heavy rock thr band was known for, but gradually introduced more funk and soul elements, to Ritchie Blackmore’s disgust.



American guitarist Tommy Bolin, known for his time in The James Gang, joined Deep Purple. By this time, Hughes was a cocaine addict, and Bolin turned out to be a heroin junkie. Deep Purple, never known as a junkie band, was beset with troubles as the members grappled with addictions and personal problems. A disastrous concert in UsefulNotes/{{Indonesia}} resulted in one of the band's road crew being murdered when thrown down an elevator shaft, and Deep Purple being forced to play an additional concert practically at gunpoint. Bolin tragically died from a heroin overdose in December 1976, ending the Mark IV lineup for good. Coverdale would go on to form his own band, Music/{{Whitesnake}}, and Paice and Lord would join that band for several albums. Hughes had a brief stint as Music/BlackSabbath's singer and also collaborated with Joe Lynn Turner (of the Mk. V lineup) in the Hughes-Turner Project.

Added DiffLines:

** Ritchie ''Blackmore''. Is there any better name for a pioneer of Heavy Metal, not to mention one who is already moody and dressed in black?

** Also the reason why founding member Chris Curtis called the band Roundabout – he wanted a core of three members, where other members could join or leave the band at any time.



* TokenAmerican: Since the MK IV lineup, Deep Purple has always had exactly one American band member – Tommy Bolin, Joe Lynn Turner, Joe Satriani, and currently Steve Morse.

** The live version of "You Fool No One" on ''Live in London'' has an outrageous two-and-a-half-minute opening organ solo by Jon Lord, in which he goes totally nuts with a ring modulator before seguing into the well-known chorale melody from Creator/JohannSebastianBach's cantata ''BWV 147 Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben'' and finally resolving into E major for the actual song -- and then, instead of plunging straight into the song the way the album version does, it kicks off with Ian Paice playing the drum part and hammering the hell out his cowbell, then Blackmore plays a simpler, nastier version of the riff on guitar, then the bass joins in, and only after another couple of minutes of awesome riffage does the song get properly under way. After that, the rest of the performance is a bit of an anticlimax.

The group is also known for their [[RevolvingDoorBand constantly rotating line-up]]; the group has its roots in a proposed rock band called Roundabout, so named because musicians would get "on and off" the group as they pleased. This didn't quite work out, and while the group that eventually became Deep Purple is notable for its endless membership changes, each successive group has been more or less a cohesive unit.
