COMPLETE-HISTORY OF DEEP PURPLE. Deep Purple is a rock band formed in Hertford, UK, in 1968, which is considered one of the pioneers of hard rock and heavy metal during his career but has also incorporated elements of progressive rock, symphonic rock, psychedelic rock, blues rock, funk rock and classical music. Deep Purple has sold over 120 million albums worldwide, 2 and are recognized as the world's loudest band in the 70s by the Guinness Book of Records.
The band has undergone many lineup changes and remained inactive since July 1976 until its meeting in April 1984. Their first four alignments are often labeled as "Mark I", "II", "III" and "IV". The "Mark II", formed by Ian Gillan (vocals), Ritchie Blackmore (guitar), Jon Lord (keyboards), Ian Paice (drums) and Roger Glover (bass), was the most successful and alignment that has garnered increased sales , and remained active from 1969 to 1973, 1984 to 1989 and again from 1992 to 1993 when the relationship between Blackmore and the rest of the musicians became irreparable. Their current lineup, with Steve Morse in place of Blackmore and Don Airey instead of Lord, has been active since 2002.

Deep Purple Beginnings: Roundabout (1967 - 1968)
In 1967, Chris Curtis, the former drummer of The Searchers, contacted Tony Edwards, a London business man, asking him if he could be the representative of the new group had devised and which was to be called Roundabout, so called because the musicians were in and out of it as if in a roundabout (roundabout means "roundabout" in English). Impressed with the plan, Edwards agreed to finance the band with two business partners: John Coletta and Ron Hire, forming the HEC Enterprises.
The first musician was recruited keyboardist Jon Lord Classic cut. The Lord had touched Artwoods, whose leader's brother Art Wood Ronnie Wood, the current guitarist of the Rolling Stones. The next to join the group was Ritchie Blackmore, a session guitarist who had to be persuaded to return from Hamburg, Germany, where he was to audition for another band. Shortly after Curtis left the project, but both HEC Enterprises as Lord and Blackmore decided to continue.

Mk I: consolidation (1968 - 1970)
 The band's first hit came in April 1968 when they released the single "Hush" Joe South original song that reached 4th place in the United States and the 2nd in Canada, but in Britain went unnoticed. Taking as an example the group Vanilla Fudge, the band developed a psychedelic rock influences in the Lord of the keyboard music of Bach and Rimsky-Korsakov. After the success of their first single the band released its first album, Shades of Deep Purple, in July 1968 in the U.S.. In the UK was published in September of that year and was completely ignored. In the album highlights the issues "Hush", "Prelude: Happiness / I'm So Glad," "Mandrake Root" and "Hey Joe." With the single "Hush" and was also well received debut album, the band embarked on a tour opening for Cream.

The following album, The Book of Taliesyn, was published in the U.S. in October 1968 to coincide with his book tour and peaked at 38 in this country. In the UK was published in July of the following year but returned to pass unnoticed. On this album stand out songs "Anthem," "Wring That Neck", "Kentucky Woman" and "River Deep - Mountain High".

Their third album is self-titled and was released in June 1969 in the U.S. It was published in the UK in November of that year but the criticism in his homeland continued ignoring them. The album cover is a section of the right panel of the triptych called The Garden of Earthly Delights Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch. In this album are relevant "April", "The Painter", "Blind" and "Bird Has Flown". After continuous touring North America Tetragrammaton Records company, responsible for the distribution of their albums in the U.S., dissolved for financial reasons and left Deep Purple with an uncertain future and no money. However, Warner Bros. Records Tetragrammaton assumed debts and published the works of the band in the United States in the early 70's. In January 1969 Deep Purple returned to the UK and recorded a song called "Emmaretta" (which comes from the name of one of the dancers from the musical Hair, whom Evans was trying to seduce).

Blackmore was not satisfied with the work of Evans on vocals and therefore contacted his friend Mick Underwood, battery Episode Six, who recommended her partner Ian Gillan. In order to hire Gillan, Blackmore and Lord attended a concert of Episode Six. After the performance, both members went to talk to the singer and tried to convince him to join Deep Purple, Gillan but made it a condition that also incorporate bassist Roger Glover. This proposition fit with the plans of Lord and Blackmore, as Evans and Simper were good friends and would lead to the departure of one bad atmosphere within the group. But Glover was not sure which option to choose, since it was the main composer of Episode Six, and lead up to the band. Also, do not trust the chances of success of Deep Purple, as in the UK were totally unknown. Finally, Glover decided to join the new band, which led to the end of Episode Six and firing Simper of Deep Purple.

The first published work on this new alignment was the live album Concerto for Group and Orchestra launched in December 1969 in the U.S.. In January 1970, the album is released in the UK and this time the band gets an absolute success in their home country. This album is a concert of classical music composed by Jon Lord in three movements. It was played on September 24, 1969 at the Royal Albert Hall in London between the band and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Malcolm Arnold. This album was one of the first to introduce a rock band playing with an orchestra, but at that time some members of the group (as Gillan and Blackmore) had in mind developing a more hard rock oriented. Despite this, Lord Gemini Suite composed, the band performed live in 1970, another merger between rock and classical music.

Mk II: Gillan - Glover (1970-1973)
In June of 1970 hits stores fourth studio album and the first with the new lineup entitled Deep Purple in Rock, which marked the definitive change the sound of Deep Purple from being a band rock / pop with psychedelic touches and progressive where some of his biggest hits were covers of other groups, to be one of the rock formations Hard's strongest point. In Deep Purple in Rock are key songs in the history of Deep Purple as "Child in Time", "Speed ??King", "Hard Lovin 'Man," "Flight of the Rat" or the single "Black Night" which reached 2nd place in the singles charts in the UK. The band built on the success of the album to begin a long tour of northern Europe.

The album Fireball is published in July 1971 in U.S. and Canada. In September is published on the European continent. The album reached the Top 40 on the U.S. charts and 1 spot on the British charts. The new album features standout tracks like "Fireball", "Demon's Eye" and "The Mule". The singles released, "Strange Kind of Woman" and "I'm Alone" is a success but not included on the original album. Also in July embark on a North American tour with the band The Faces of Rod Stewart. This success gives them strong enough to create in October of that same year his own label: "Purple Records".

Everything is on track to Deep Purple members, except for Roger Glover, who strangely begins to suffer intense stomach pains, problems that over time were increasing, to the point of jeopardizing the presentations of the band. Blackmore, who was watching the situation as a spectator, once backstage, while Glover was writhing in pain, he managed to tell who would be able to get through those pains while they were acting. It was such a problem into an opportunity Glover was replaced on bass by Chas Hodges Blackmore former partner in the band The Outlaws. Neither the doctors could quell unrest bassist, who finally after a hypnotherapy sessions might solve the problem. It all came to a subconscious tension.

On December 3, 1971 the band came to Montreux, Switzerland, to begin recording sessions for its next album, however, the next day singing Frank Zappa & The Mother of Inventions and someone fired a flare causing a fire completely razed to the casino. This unfortunate incident eventually led to an empty hotel rent per season to start those sessions using the mobile studio recording of The Rolling Stones. During the recording process as they remembered and had burned the casino created the theme "Smoke on the Water" and narrated what had happened.

Machine Head album is released in March 1972 and became his studio album most commercially successful. It contains several of his most famous songs such as hiperpopular "Smoke on the Water," "Highway Star," "Space Truckin '", "Lazy", "Pictures of Home" or the single "When a Blind Man Cries". The song "Smoke on the Water" was released as a single in May 1973 and reached the 4th place in the U.S. and 2nd place in Canada.

Monstrous tours and live concerts will happen to the new album, playing for 44 consecutive weeks, only to be seconded by Led Zeppelin counterparts. Machine Head is an album so complete that every one of his songs have been performed in a concert of Deep Purple.

Although the band had reached the pinnacle of success, extensive touring, physical fatigue and stress caused difficulties in internal relations, on time between Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Gillan, who at first were great friends. The fame was charging its victims within Deep Purple promptly in personal egos and otherwise maintaining absolute control within a band that every day grew larger. It is in this period that Ian Gillan decides to put an end to his participation as a member of Deep Purple, which had to delay starting almost a year after the previous contracts basically the band had, despite the impact his departure would produce the rest members showed no concern. This attitude only increased the chasm that had between Ian Gillan and the rest of the members. Despite these problems in August 1972 the band embarks on East tour which is is recorded in the famous live album Made in Japan. This album was released in December 1972 in the UK and in April 1973 in the U.S.

The album Made in Japan rises to Deep Purple hyperspace of Fame as music critics surrender their pies.3 its analysis John Tiven of Rolling Stone was blunt about it: "... all alone Made in Japan are technically superior to most melodramatic instrumental bands you hear of supposedly more important. " (... All of the solos on Made In Japan are technically superior to MOST instrumental melodramatics one hears from supposedly more serious bands)

Made in Japan holds the record of being "the best-selling live album in music history" with over 8 million copies worldwide.

Among these extensive tours and small breaks record what would be the last studio album from the Mark II training: Who Do We Think We Are. This album was released in January 1973 in the U.S. and in February in the UK. From this album stand out themes as "Woman from Tokyo", "Rat Bat Blue", "Mary Long" and "Smooth Dancer". The songs from the new album were played live, except "Mary Long", because they do not have enough time to test them for this reason alone interpret old material. Thus comes the June 29, 1973 and after this last performance with the band in Osaka, Japan, Ian Gillan Deep Purple finally leaves. Following his departure from the band Gillan exits the music world to worry only about their personal business but reappears in 1975 live with Roger Glover.

Already with Gillan outside the band bassist Roger Glover despite their creditworthiness and musical quality Blackmore fired for no justifiable reasons which would leave him with a deep depression. After overcoming this episode begin a career as a music producer important bands like Status Quo, Elf, Ian Gillan Band, Nazareth and Judas Priest. In 1974 he released his first solo album entitled The Butterfly Ball, play based on a children's book of the same name which has the support of David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Mickey Lee and Ronnie James Dio Soul, among others. Ian Gillan worked in the live performance of this work at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Then came other productions: Elements, 1978, The Mask of Snapshot 1984 and 2002. Glover was reconciled with Ritchie Blackmore and Rainbow were together from 1979 to 1984. In 1988 he released an album with Ian Gillan entitled Accidentally On Purpose.

Ian Gillan meanwhile reappeared on the music scene in 1976 with his band Ian Gillan Band which is dedicated to Jazz rock style. The first album is called Child in Time, the same year he published the second album Clear Air Turbulence and continues Scarabus in 1977. Finally, Live at the Budokan edited with volume 1 in 1977 and volume 2 in 1978. Ian Gillan decides that you must perform Hard Rock and therefore renamed the band to Gillan and contact oriented musicians heavy music. The new group edits the mini Lp The Japanese Album in 1978 and then the album Mr. Universe in 1979 and Glory Road in 1980. These last two albums are an event and catapulted the band to stardom, however, just in this period is consolidating musically, Ian Gillan gets a nasty news because everything must end as soon as possible and submit to an operation, the cause , nodules on her vocal cords. All work back to square one.

Once recovered Albums published in 1981 Future Shock, Double Trouble in 1981, the latter two also with great reviews and excellent reception from the fans, and finally Magic in 1982. At this time Ian Gillan stardom and reached again in 1983 for this reason is called by the members of Black Sabbath vocalist to enter. With the Sabbath released the album Born Again in the same year. In 1988 he published the album with Glover Accidentally On Purpose. In the early 90's changed his stage name to Garth Rockett & the Moonshiners, launching in 1990 Live At the Ritz, and finally editing albums with his name Ian Gillan Naked Thunder 1991 Toolbox, 1992, also in this year Edit the book entitled Cherkazoo and Other Stories, which contains a collection of recordings made between 1973 and 1975 but had never been published. Then edit DreamCatcher in 1998 and the recent Gillan's Inn in 2006.

Turning to the internal crisis in Deep Purple, with the voluntary departure of vocalist and bassist mandatory, arrange to get their replacements were immediate.

Mk III: Coverdale and Hughes (1973 - 1975) Once separated Gillan and Glover of Deep Purple, Blackmore had complete freedom to implement their vision of renewing the band, planning a single vowel combination between vocalist Paul Rodgers, Free group, and the extraordinary Glenn Hughes on bass Trapeze and voices. Rodgers did not accept the position offered, so it is recruited in August virtually unknown David Coverdale, record very similar to that. The new lineup of the band was presented to the media on September 23, 1973 at Clearwell Castle. In February 1974 Burn hits the market that includes songs like the eponymous' Burn ',' Mistreated ',' You Fool No One "," Might Just Take Your Life "and" Lay Down, Stay Down "issues became new classics of the band and also helped achieve greater popularity it enjoyed with its former members. While still in the path of Heavy Rock, 'Burn' includes more marked rhythms Blues, Soul and R & B, especially the influence of the two new members.

The first U.S. tour of the new line had its peak on April 6, 1974 at the California Jam Festival which had the largest audience in the history of Deep Purple with an attendance of approximately 260,000 people. This huge amount of people could be gathered in the racetrack Ontario Motor Speedway in California.
According to the schedule closing Deep Purple concert, but last minute the producers changed the order of presentation of the leaving group Emerson, Lake & Palmer remaining, sparking the ire of Ritchie Blackmore locking himself in his dressing room without wanting to leave the stage. After intense production by acting as convinced, however, Blackmore had worked out how to get revenge.

Ritchie instructed his personal roadie gasoline bathe several sound systems. When the band was playing the last song, Space Truckin ', Blackmore gave the signal to his roadie for this burned amplifiers, left unusable after a TV camera in the U.S. network ABC to hit it with the neck of his guitar which then launched the public and also destroyed several amplifiers cast them into the stage pit. While Blackmore doing his show the rest of the band was still playing in the middle of intense smoke and explosions which marks the climax of the whole show. This was liked by many fans even applauded this. After the concert the band had to make a dramatic escape by helicopter to avoid being arrested by police.

The performance of Deep Purple at California Jam Festival was released on video in VHS in 1981 and on DVD in 2005. The DVD version was released under the name Live in California 74 and presents the complete concert of Purple and incorporating the theme "Lay Down, Stay Down" was left out in the VHS edition. Deep Purple's performance became an object of worship because of the flawless performance of the group and also to record full Blackmore's revenge against the producers of the event.

In the music world tour soon began to escape the control of Blackmore. Hughes funk trends began to gain ground and this process led to recording another album in the late summer of 1974. When Blackmore's request to include a version of an old song titled Quatermass Black sheep of the family was ignored, the guitarist ended up occupying a secondary place in the study. Stormbringer The album was released in December 1974 and took shape blending rock, soul and funk in a very ahead of its time. This album highlights the issues' Stormbringer 'Soldier of Fortune ',' Lady Double Dealer "and" Hold On. "

Mk IV: Beginning of the End (1975 - 1976)
Tommy Bolin in the band seemed to have found a guitarist with a natural perception for all musical directions that were creeping in Deep Purple. Reinvigorated the band focused on rehearsals for a new album in June 1975.

Despite his young age, 24 years, Bolin had earned a name as a guitarist through his work with jazz musicians such as Billy Cobham, his time in the band James Gang and collaboration Mouzon's album Mind Transplant Alphonze 1975 in addition to his previous recordings with his band called Electric Zephir. Recorded in 1969 with her self-titled album Zephir, in 1971 released his second album Going Back to Colorado, left the band to concentrate on his solo projects, and in 1975 it published the album Teaser, is in this period that receives the invitation joining Deep Purple, the band would not know it, despite his international fame.

On October 10, 1975 album hits stores Come Taste the Band, which highlighted the tremendous talent Bolin, despite being technically and stylistically different from Blackmore, combining rock, jazz and funk. The sound was characterized Deep Purple section, however, new issues contributed to the band fresh air. In this album include the songs "You Keep on Moving", "Comin 'Home," "Love Child" and "Gettin' Tighter".

The subsequent tour of the album was pretty frustrating for group members. The heroin addiction of Tommy Bolin made him quite irregular at concerts, committing the name Deep Purple had won after many years, evidence of this is recorded in the live album titled Last Concert in Japan, which in principle only was released in that country. The magic, the power and the sound they were gone, so it was just the hardest but inevitable consequence, the separation.

The last concert of Deep Purple was held March 15, 1976 at the Liverpool Empire Theatre in Liverpool, United Unido.5 Coverdale had already resigned and even had talked to his former comrade of adolescence, Micky Moody, to start a new project would end up being Whitesnake. Lord and Paice also they realized that the adventure of eight years of Deep Purple had come to an end, and had begun planning a new project together with keyboardist and vocalist Tony Ashton. The only people who were not aware of the separation were Bolin and Hughes. Finally, Deep Purple broke up in July 1976 and had to wait until April 1984 to reconvene.

The impact resulted in the separation of fans favored group editing new albums by their record company. For this reason, in October 1976 was released the live album Made in Europe which contains a selection of songs from three concerts in April 1975 by the formation Mark III (Blackmore, Coverdale, Hughes, Lord and Paice).

After two years of solo projects, David Coverdale Whitesnake began in early 1978, Lord and Paice enrolling in their ranks in mid-1979.

Glenn Hughes recorded a solo album and participated in some sessions, including participating as a vocalist on the album Seventh Star by Black Sabbath. Overcame his addiction to drugs and resumed his career in the early nineties.

Tommy Bolin Private Eyes released in September 1976 and was his second solo album. Unfortunately Bolin died Dec. 4 of that year in Miami, USA, due to a deadly mix of drugs and alcohol.

In honor of the label Bolin Purple Records released a new live album of Deep Purple in March 1977 called Last Concert in Japan.

At this time Blackmore recorded in early 1975 the album Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow with members of the band Elf, opening for Deep Purple, which was the beginning of the group Rainbow. Deep Purple embarks on a small European tour in March 1975 but the band knew that Blackmore was determined to leave. On April 7, at the Palais des Sports in Paris the third lineup of Deep Purple gives his last concert.

To the surprise of many, including the same band, Coverdale and Hughes were determined to continue despite the departure of Blackmore and soon everyone was looking for a new guitarist.

Mk II: The Story Continues (1984 - 1989)
It took eight years since the last time Deep Purple went on stage, each of its members heading for their personal projects, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Gary Moore Band, Ian Gillan Band, were some of the bands that housed the former Purple-members despite time, rumors of a reunion were swift, and occasionally appeared live compilations increasing nostalgia fans worldwide.

In 1980 a false re-incarnation of Deep Purple led by the band's lead singer, Rod Evans, appeared circuits and bars of the West Coast of the United States, playing issues in which he had no involvement in the composition The black point was introduced in Mexico when fans in finding that on stage were not original members broke everything in protest. Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles seeking a ban of the use of the name of the band, as favored the past. Incidentally Evans is sentenced to pay a large sum of money for damages caused to the group name. In noting the inability to pay such sum Judge Evans ruled against the cancellation of receipts and royalties from the first three albums of the band where it appeared as a composer. Thus we come to April 1984 rumors and hope to see Deep Purple again becomes reality. Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord and Paice most emblematic members of Deep Purple, the great Mark II training kicking regroups after nearly a decade to the rebirth of one of the pillars of rock bands. Edit a Deep Purple Perfect Strangers new album on September 16, 1984 in the U.S. and between October and November in the world. The album Perfect Strangers was remastered in 1999 including "Son Of Alerik" which was released on the B-side single Perfect Strangers. In the album highlights the issues: "Perfect Strangers," "Knocking At Your Back Door," "Under The Gun", "A Gypsy's Kiss" and "Wasted Sunsets". Three promotional music videos were edited to support the dissemination of the album with the themes "Perfect Strangers," "Knocking At Your Back Door" and "Under The Gun".

Begins an extensive tour across the planet, time and maturity definitely seems to have buried the disagreements of youth, strength, virtuosity and musical strength are reflected in subsequent live albums released by the seals they see in them a mine gold with many still life and needed to continue operating.
The wide coverage that the media have devoted to the band 6 favored the press and magazines without problems they conferred the titles of "Best guitarist, keyboardist, drummer, bassist and vocalist of the year." It was a kind of vindication for each of the members.

Deep Purple's success continued in 1985 with a peak on June 22 when they were head of the famous Festival Knebworth, UK, before 80,000 espectadores.7 8 His performance was recorded and released in 1991 on the album In The Absence of Pink.

In January 1987 they release a new album: The House of Blue Light. On the new album include the topics: "Call Of The Wild", "Mad Dog," "Dead Or Alive", "Bad Attitude" and "The Unwritten Law". Besides two promotional video clips were edited to support the dissemination of the album with the themes "Call Of The Wild" and "Bad Attitude".

During the making of the album come again friction between Gillan and Blackmore. That which by now was believed buried resurfaces again as in the previous decade.

Through 1987 and 1988 he performed the world tour of the album The House Of Blue Light. The band takes the opportunity to record several themes of his concerts in Europe and the U.S. These issues are published in June 1988 on the live album Nobody's Perfect which contains 11 songs. In 1999 Nobody's Perfect was remastered and this time included 14 subjects. Finally, in June 1988 released a video for the track "Hush" in order to commemorate the 20 years since its release in 1968 but this time the song was recorded in the voice of Gillan.

The constant bickering between Blackmore and Gillan result that the latter group is dismissed. The year was 1989 and the band again looks at the problem of finding a new singer. Mk V: a break in the road purple (1989 - 1992) Finally, Joe Lynn Turner was accepted as the new singer in December 1989. Turner had triumphed with Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen and also got along very well with Blackmore Rainbow after work from 1980 to 1984. With this new vocalist the band released in October 1990 album Slaves & Masters. This album has a much more melodic and harmonious than his predecessors away from the sound of the band but without denying that those compositions were good songs. This album highlights the topics "The Cut Runs Deep," "King Of Dreams ',' Fire In The Basement" and "Love Conquers All". He edited two promotional video clips to support the dissemination of the album with the themes "King Of Dreams" and "Love Conquers All".

Ritchie Blackmore building commitment and memorable melodies that somehow manages along with the great contribution of Joe Lynn Turner, however, was a different story alive. Although interpreting classics "Mk III", vetoed by Gillan issues, starting with the memorable concerts "Burn" and incorporating the classic "Hey Joe" the results were not to the liking of the rest of the band except that believes Blackmore this album as one of their favorites.
fans will definitely not accept this new formation, internal wills and own label, fired Turner while performing the recordings of the next album. In April 1992 the band Ian Gillan calls again but this time without the acceptance of Ritchie Blackmore.

Mk II: Battle of hatred continues (1992 - 1993)
When Ian Gillan rejoins the band's new album is halfway. Gillan decided to rewrite the lyrics. The result is The Battle Rages On, album released in July 1993, a title that somehow reflects the tense internal environment. However, this issue emerges again the signature sound of the band with solid themes as the namesake "The Battle Rages On ',' Anya ',' Talk About Love ',' Nasty Piece of Work" or "A Twist in the Tale ». The album is simply brilliant in its essence Rock, even the members of the band did not hesitate to describe it as the best album made until then. Although the band is able to maintain its sound and as a result put in operation again this musical machine, and despite having all the technology available at your fingertips and satisfactory result, problems and friction of two of its members have much more weight in assessing the continuity of the band, to the point that the only solution is to exit or Blackmore Gillan.

Begin the tour promoting the album, touring U.S. and Europe. On stage are able to perceive the tense atmosphere between the members of the group, where several encores Blackmore guitar runs but behind the amplifiers, or simply retiring and leaving his companions alone on stage, bowing Gillan to appear sarcastic one in scene. Anyway, definitely a battle of egos insurmountable.

In late 1993 the concerts held on October 16 in Stuttgart, Germany, and on November 9 in Birmingham, UK, are fully recorded and used as the basis to extract the topics covered live album Come Hell or High Water released in November 1994. The new album is also released on video under the same name and is known for six issues include the audio version but only uses the images of the concert in Birmingham.

Blackmore participates in his last concert with Deep Purple on November 17, 1993 in Helsinki, Finland, and the band is removed. In this way, the tour of the album The Battle Rages On, and the commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of Deep Purple is momentarily stopped waiting to find a worthy replacement for the position of guitar. Mk VI: alternative training (December 1993 - July 1994) The other members of the group decide to finish the tour and outstanding commitments so contact Joe Satriani guitarist who recently came out of the recording studio and some time available to support Deep Purple. The first concert of Deep Purple with Joe Satriani performed on December 2, 1993 in Nagoya, Japan. The excellent performance of Satriani-a balanced mix between fidelity of the versions and their own spin-can be seen in the audio and video bootlegs (eg, audio entitled Flying in a Purple Dream).

The arrival of new guitarist ensured compliance of all the shows agreed. Moreover, thanks to his great work was seen as a potential replacement for Blackmore, however, Satriani had to fulfill their commitments with their record label and therefore left the band but before Steve Morse personally recommended for the position. Satriani's last concert with Deep Purple was the July 5, 1994 in Kapfenberg, Austria. Mk VII: a new look purple (1994 - 2002)

Thus, the American guitarist Steve Morse is perfectly integrated into the group. Morse had previously participated in the band Dixie Dregs and Kansas and also in his The Steve Morse Band (where accompanying Dave LaRue on bass and Van Romaine on drums). His addition was a change in the band's musical style, characterized by virtuosity and his guitar technique that is much more modern than the classic sound of Ritchie Blackmore. The first concert of Deep Purple with Steve Morse took place on November 23, 1994 at the Palacio de los Deportes, Mexico City, Mexico.

Purpendicular The album was released in February 1996 in the UK and in April of that year in the U.S.. The band starts again toured the whole world this time reaching even South America. The new album marks the rebirth of Deep Purple as a band they have been just the constant conflicts between vocalist and guitarist because Morse established a very good relationship with all members of the group. Disc has outstanding issues like "Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming", "Hey Cisco", "Vavoom: Ted The Mechanic", "Cascades: I'm Not Your Lover" and "Loosen My Strings".

Purpendicular is the reinvention of Deep Purple since Morse brings his guitar style in avoiding being a copy of Blackmore which is liked by most of the 11 crítica.10 David Coverdale also gave a positive opinion Purpendicular Album: "Recently I heard the new Deep Purple, Purpendicular, and I was so glad that rings at Deep Purple, not Pearl Jam or Stone Temple Pilots. Jon Lord plays better than ever impressed me".

Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru and Chile are the countries selected for the South American tour. In his debut performance in Chile, in February 1997, is an episode unfortunate for the band. Such was the level of call and effervescence of Deep Purple in the local fans to start the show the audience occupied sectors for them "forbidden" as the control tower. Given the large crowds who climbed on the tower, this collapse finally ended when the band played the second track 'Fireball'. There were many injuries of varying degrees but fortunately without loss of life. The show was canceled for about 45 minutes after which the decision of the band returned to the stage. Jon Lord later said it was one of the saddest events of his life.

Moreover, Ritchie Blackmore Rainbow revived in 1995. This time he is the only original component of the band. The same year he published the excellent album titled Strangers in Us All. Subsequently, with his wife Candice Night as the band Blackmore's Night, with which to date has recorded seven studio albums, one live and one double compilation.

Returning to Deep Purple, edited in May 1998 the album titled Abandon. On this album highlights the issues, "'69", "Any Fule Kno That", "Almost Human" and "Watching the Sky". This was the last studio album in which Jon Lord appeared as a member of the group, as in the year 2003 in a farewell concert was retired from the band Deep Purple.

During the world tour disc Abandon a concert filmed entirely in Melbourne, Australia, which published in October 1999 under 2 CD audio format as DVD video. This new video and live album was released under the name Total Abandon: Australia '99.

In 1999 he met 30 years that execute the Deep Purple Concerto for Group and Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The original score was lost concert so Lord suggested that it was best to reconstruct and reinterpret all the work to commemorate its 30th anniversary. Jon received help from the Dutch Marco de Goeij a fan who is also a musicologist and composer. Both painstakingly reconstructed the missing score.
The concert took place between 25 and 26 September 1999 at the Royal Albert Hall in London with the London Symphony Orchestra and as conductor Paul Mann.
