** 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.

* CanonDiscontinuity: The Ian Gillan-led versions of the group have never played anything from the David Coverdale/Glen Hughes years. Gillan has even gone so far as to say he doesn't consider the three studio albums made during that period (''Burn,'' ''Stormbringer'' and ''Come Taste the Band'') to even ''be'' Deep Purple albums, although he admits they contain some very good music.


Added DiffLines:

*** This is because the scammers, in order to entice Evans, offered him a contract giving him ostensible "ownership" of the new group even though they were actually funding it and would receive most of its revenues. When the lawyers came knocking, he was the official owner of this venture and the one left holding the bag.

So far there have been eight distinct lineups, or Marks, of Deep Purple, not including a "bogus" Deep Purple that toured in 1980 with only one original member (vocalist Rod Evans).

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.

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 Free and Bad Company), 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.
