Icon27 Purple introducing... err... the Unknown

Here's a couple of UK press clippings from mid-1973 when Glenn and a then unknown, David Coverdale, joined Deep Purple, at their first major press conference at Clearwell Castle.

When Glenn joined DP, there was still some talk going on about Paul Rogers being replacement for Ian Gillan. This fairly quickly died down, and soon after DC was introduced as new singer of DP - very often referred to as David Cloverdale...
Some time ago I asked DC if he knew Glenn/Trapeze before the two became Purples:

"I borrowed ‘You Are The Music...’ the week before I auditioned for DP & was blown away by Glenn & the band...my girlfriend at the time looked at me as if to say “Why bother?”...But, I did & was very fortunate...I still enjoy the album to this day...I have all Glenn’s works, I believe."
