Excerpts from an Interview with Roger Glover, 16.02.2006, Heidelberg

by Andree Schneider (AS) & Lars Wehmeyer (LW) for german DEEP PURPLE online fanclub “The Aviator“

LW: Beside your work on stage, you also work very hard to have a good and close relationship with the fans – which you can see since you’re sitting here with us. Where do you get the motivation after an exhausting show to talk to people, give autographs, have pictures taken, or to even do an interview at such a late hour?

Talk with Roger Glover

by Stefan Glas for Rock Hard Magazine, Germany
Hotel Europäischer Hof, Heidelberg, Germany, Sep 27, 1996.

Dear Readers!

Back Again! Deep Purple (German language)

by Lothar Trampert for Gitarre und Bass, Germany

Bei den Klassikern des Hard Rock hat sich einiges getan: Schon nach dem eher zwiespältig beurteilten letztjährigen Album ‘The Battle Rages On’ zeigten sich Deep Purple auf ihrer anschließenden Deutschland-Tour, ganz entgegen manchen Erwartungen, als nach wie vor packender Live-Act. Kurze Zeit später verließ Gitarristen-Legende Ritchie Blackmore die Band, und die Zukunft sah weniger rosig aus…

Anfang Juni 1994: Deep Purple treten auf europäischen Bühnen den Beweis an, daß die Zeiten der Ungewißheit nun endgültig vorbei sein dürften.
