Music Monday – Smoke on the Water

Smoke O The Water

The pic isn’t “Smoke”, but this song by Deep Purple certainly does.  Deep Purple have been making great rock music for a long time and have continued to reinvent themselves as members die or leave the band.  The most recent incarnation announced on their website that they’d be releasing a new album in 2013.
The video, aside from showcasing Deep Purple rocking this huge hit of theirs live, has a lead in which Jon Lord talks about the origin of the song and a trailer in which he discusses the band’s thoughts on the song.  It’s a very cool way to bookend this video.
Normally, I’d listen to and then post a few other songs by a band on here, but I’m really tired and need to get this post done.  My apologies.

  1. Surely, one of the greatest rock bands to ever get up on a stage. Gillan’s rocking that beard, nice!
