It is now 35 years since Deep Purple first came together and today 14 musicians, 17 albums, and millions of record sales later the group remains a monster. Smoke on the Water is the first book in more than 20 years to tell the story of this remarkable band, from their grandiose inception in 1968 to the release of their latest album in 2003. Drawing from candid interviews with band members, associates, and fans alike, it traces the group through some of the most turbulent times that any band has survived, placing the band’s own music in vivid context and illustrating just how profoundly this one group helped change the world.
""If you have any kind of rock 'n' roll reference library, chances are you own at least one book by Dave Thompson."
