Deep Purple – London 1987


I’m pretty sure I enjoyed it, but I remember reading a review of the show a couple of days later (pre web!). It said that the typical looking road crew – biker shirts, beards, bad unkempt hair, tracksuit bottoms, flashlights and generally pretty scruffy (I’ve roadied a bit so I can say this) – were on stage…and then the lights went down and it was Deep Purple – possibly a wee bit passed their sell-by date.
