ABOUT.COM CLASSIC ROCK:
Did you try to make it different from what you would write for Deep Purple?
Well, it’s just Purple without Purple! I would say that the way I write here is exactly what could end up on a Purple record. The only thing is, it’s written outside of the band instead of inside. Any one of these songs … could’ve worked with Purple, it’s just that if you take Purple stuff and take Purple out of it and take a different production approach you’re going to get completely different sounds.
