** Ritchie does smile, but even his smiles are tense. During Mk I's performance at the Playboy mansion, he can even be seen '''giggling'''.

''Members'': David Coverdale (vocals), Glenn Hughes (bass), Tommy Bolin (guitar), Jon Lord (keyboard), Ian Paice (drums).
''Albums'': Come Taste The Band (1975)

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 descended into addictions. A disastrous concert in Indonesia resulted in the band's tour manager being murdered by being thrown down an elevator shaft, and Deep Purple being forced to play an additional concert practically at gunpoint. Bolin tragically overdosed on heroin and died in December 1976, ending the Mark IV lineup for good. Coverdale would go on to form his own band, Whitesnake, and Paice and Lord would join that band for several albums. Hughes had a brief stint as Black Sabbath's singer and also collaborated with Joe Lynn Turner (of the Mk. V lineup) in the Hughes-Turner Project.

Despite only lasting for little over a year, Deep Purple Mk. I produced three albums and a hit 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 incarnation of Deep Purple was purely a touring band and never recorded in the studio. After Blackmore quit in 1993, Deep Purple recruited guitarist Joe Satriani to finish out their tour. Although he was not able to stay on as a permanent member, Satriani has jammed with his Deep Purple bandmates on several occasions.

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 [[Jesus Christ Superstar (Music)|Jesus Christ Superstar]] 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.

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 CalJam 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.
