Gettin’ Tighter – The Story of MKIV, Deep Purple film trailer – due out in early 2011
“Set for release in early 2011, this film trailer is an early glimpse of the BLURAY/DVD that documents Deep Purple’s turbulent last year before the band split in 1976.
Exclusive new interviews with Glenn Hughes and founder member Jon Lord that open the lid on the problems that beset the band as they toured around the world: Death, drugs and devastation, which led to their ultimate demise.
Archive footage from the tour includes interviews with Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale and Ian Paice, while rare and previously unreleased concert footage includes performances of Purple classics ‘Smoke On The Water‘, ‘Burn‘ and ‘Highway Star‘.
Live versions of ‘Love Child‘ and ‘You Keep On Moving‘ from the MKIV line-up’s one and only album ‘Come Taste The Band‘ also feature as part of the previously unreleased film ‘Deep Purple Rises In Japan‘ – included in full, within this DVD.”

Further updates, as and when things are progressing!
A couple of new Black Country Communion interviews with Glenn have recently been made available… 😎
“I’ll put this album toe to toe with a Who album or Zeppelin album though that might come across as being arrogant but dammit I’ve sold a lot of records man, I’ve been around for a lot of years and I said to Joe, I said man, you could be my son but I said “Joe, there are a few sure things in life and this is one of them.”
“I have so much music inside me, and as long as I’m compelled to make music I shall do so..the voice is in great shape, and physically I can still pull it off..I think I’ll know when the time has come, but right now, how I feel and write, that day is a long way off..the energy from BCC has really invigorated me. There’s plenty left in the tank.”
“The future because the past has gone for me. I’m not one to relive it, not one for nostalgialise. I am one of the artists in rock that pushes the boat out every year. A bit of a chameleon and I like to challenge myself and I’ve gone back to my roots. I’ve gone back to the voice of rock kind of thing.”
