Stormbringer No.2 on BBC UK Rock Chart!

The recently released 35th Anniversary remaster of Deep Purple’s “Stormbringer” has entered straight in at No. 2 on the UK’s BBC rock chart

Now we know Glenn did an awesome job on the remixes, so hopefully that had something to do with it Congratulations to Simon Robinson and everyone at DPAS, they did a fantastic job on this one.



Mel Galley RIP

Some extremely sad news to report this morning, in fact, we’ll let Glenn tell you directly.

“Melville

I am so very sad to report the passing of my oldest friend Mel. He drifted into his Golden sleep @ 10pm last night. He is now with his higher power…he has come home.

I will cherish his memory and all the things that Mel shared with me in his full and rich life…but most of all, he showed me to live like a man. He took my hand as a boy and walked me thru my earliest chapters as a young musician….he alone is responsible 4 my career as a working musician/singer-songwriter.

Let’s all remember Mel with love in our hearts and he wanted you all 2 know how overcome he was with the Global outpouring of love 4 him…he said to me “I had no idea, how many people cared and loved me”…..he was the man, he was my childhood
idol along with Jimi and Eric.

You are the Music.

I’ll see you in the Garden one day and I will recognise you as my brother…..

G
