* UncommonTime: Generally rare in their music, but the instrumental sections of "Perfect Strangers" are in alternating bars of 4/4 and 5/4 time, up until the point where Gillan sings "I know I must remain inside this silent well of sorrow", which reverts to 4/4 time.

** 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 [[MoreCowbell cowbell]], then Blackmore plays a simpler, meaner 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.

* 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 and while we were there we were distracted by a fire breaking out in a nearby venue. Thanks to the prompt action of venue staff, there were no serious casualties and our recording schedule was not materially affected."

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.

** 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.

->"I was just reading the interview with Rod Evans in 'Sounds' and he hasn't changed, he's really a nice guy, there's no malice intended. He probably wanted to make some money out of it, which he felt he might not have done in the beginning. But that's all over and now the lawyers are in and that's been stopped."
