    Deep Purple fan from the time I heard Hush and Kentucky Woman while doing my lessons at the kitchen table. I hope to see them again in the US. Cheers!

      Hello, Mr. Roger
      My name is Małgorzata and for 40 years (from birth) I am a huge DP fan from Poland. I even wrote a biography of DP, which I gave to Steve Morse in Katowice. I have a huge request. Because I was at all your concerts in Poland and I will also be in Krakow on 1/07/2018. could you play the song “Haunted” exceptionally? It is such a beautiful song, and you never play it like “Contact Lost”. I would be the happiest fan of DP under the sun if I could hear him live. And you, Roger, I like not only for a great talent but also for this beautiful smile … Thank you, if you would like to write back to me. I will be very happy, although I know that I am not the only one who writes to you. Best wishes and thank you for all the years of happiness you have given me.

    Happy Birthday, Roger!! I met you a few weeks ago in Copenhagen (and in New Jersey a few months earlier), and you were very gracious and nice to us at the meet and greet before the show, which was excellent, btw!! I’m a huge fan of the old DP music, but these last two albums have been brilliant – I’d put them up against any two of the earlier LP’s, and I’m biased as hell.

    Have a great birthday!!

    Happy Birthday Roger!
    Told the pupils at school that I would send you a message (I`m a teacher), and that I remember all past and present members of the band`s birthdays by heart. Why, they asked? Because Deep Purple are family!

    Happy birthday Roger !
    I thank you all for continuing to make great new music. I must admit I was somewhat surprised by the darkish lyrical mood on most of the InFinite album, but now I find it to be a very strong album. It really sounds more and more brilliant after repeated listenings. It’s absolutely fantastic that you are making great new albums and new music that doesn’t pale in comparison with anything you’ve done before. Hope you’ll do at least one more new album as some of you have already been looking forward to.
    Thanks to all of you for making new music!

        Happy Birthday to you! I hope it’s a great one for you. I am so happy I got to see you this year when Deep Purple came to L.A. It was special, and I hope you are well and enjoying the book I finally was able to get to you through my friend. Please enjoy your day and know I am doing well and hope for the chance to get to see you again granted you find yourself in L.A. With Love, Your favorite Armenian, Denise T. Dardarian : )
