a long time ago i was a young boy ( 1977 ).
i went in a store to get deep purple made in japan
and immediately i loved that lp.
so i sterted to search other bands and relative players. i could discover uriah heep black sabbath led zeppelin ufo rainbow................................
the guy in the store explained to me about deep history, so i got fireball, in rock and machine head about purple.
but i asked often about mk 3, and such as several people he told me that was better mark 2.
mk 3 an mk 4 was not real purple.!!!!!!!!!
my answer was:" ok give me made in europe" eh eh eh.
i saw the pictures on the cover and immediately i looked the bass player with the long hair.
i heard lp and the day after with my few money i went to get burn and stormbringer.
after one week finally i took what for me is one of my first ten record of ever. come taste the band.
ok, ok, mark 2 is good, but i always prefered mk 3 and mk 4.
in that time there was not videotape.
there were pubs where the guys could see movie in a reel.
so one night we went to see california jam about deep purple.
i don't remember if was 1979 1980. i don't remember.
after few minutes all people were disappoined, because there were not gillan glover but coverdale hughes.
i was entusiast about it. eh eh eh.
so in that moment i saw glenn in live show.
i loved immediately. his voice his dressing.....everythings.
in that moment started the hunt to all stuff with glenn hughes.
finally some years ago i could meet him and from that moment we are in contact and i can meet him sometimes on the road.
this is just a short summary about my personal experience with glenn's music.
