A limited edition run of the book, signed by drummer Ian Paice, will be available. There are only 125 copies like this, and the publishers are making a donation to a charity of Ian’s choice for this. See the news item on our home page.
The first of our Barry Plummer books covers the highly influential and successful rock band Deep Purple. Formed in 1968, Barry photographed the group at a number of important shows in the early seventies, including their Royal Albert Hall debut (as a band without an orchestra!), appearances at the BBC for Top Of The Pops and In Concert, shows in 72 and 73 and then their British tour in 1974. The photographs feature arguable the group’s most important line-ups, Mk 2 with Ian Gillan and Roger Glover, then Mk 3 with Coverdale and Hughes. Barry also covered some press launches.
The book is now planned for April 2017 and the revised cover design is shown below:
