    Currently playing Elements, which I first heard in 1978 and thought I’d drop you a line to say how much I love it. I have several of your albums and all the Purple albums of the 60s, 70s & early 80s. Keep rocking, Roger!

    Roger! I didn’t know about this page.
    But it’s never to late to wish you
    Happy Birthday. This year i saw you
    twice on stage. In Hungary Budapest, and
    a week later in Slovakia, Banská Bystrica.
    Both purple show was amazing. You looks
    very young, healthy, full of power.
    I wish you and your family a Merry xmas and a very happy, tourful, musicful, healthy 2024.
    Hopefully when you turn 88, i can say again, that
    i saw you 2 times on stage.

    Love you man. Greetings from Hungary.

    Hope you had a wonderful birthday, Roger!! For my birthday this year, I went to a Deep Purple concert, so for me, there was no better way to celebrate!
    Hope to catch you next year on tour. Have a great Christmas break!!

    Hi Roger
    Happy 78th Birthday! A sports colleague of mine wore a T-Shirt at the Gym last week. 40th anniversary of the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2006. I asked: you know whom you have on your back? He didn’t even though he attended the festival.
    Guess you know the guy playing a V…..-bass and wearing a scarf 😉 ?

    Keep on rockin’.

    Best Georg / Germany

    Happy birthday!
    Thanks for all the music, lyrics, writing, production ..more to come , the canvas is always there to be worked on so to speak. Still waiting for your Biography which you said will be out when avsked about it in Neuruppin some yeara ago. hoping it will materialize some day, it would be nice to read more from you.. you are a great artist in many senses and seem like a nice great person to. Now take care of yourself and family. I even tried to make the cake of the recipy you told Anders Tegnér in his book of rock stars cooking.

    Dear Roger,
    All my best wishes for you. May the new year of your life bring you health und continuous fun with the other guys of the group on stage! Watchung your interaction with Simon makes me smile, although I miss Steve very much.
    Thank you for the wonderful (but a little wet) open-air-gig in Stuttgart/Germany in July this year. I’m not sure if I can see you all next year, the venues are too far from my home.
    So I hope for a new album in 2024 – I’m curious which ideas Simon will bring (and which of them Bob will like 😉)
    Love from the southwest of Germany
    your fan Beate

    Dear Roger,
    now it’s 78 years ago, when you saw the world the first time. Happy birthday!
    Please stay healthy for a long, long time! And I wish you (and us fans) that you’ll be so creative in so many disciplines of art as in so many years in the past.
