There are two versions of the story. In one, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was tripping on acid and a hippie girl asked him "How's your purple?" "Deep," he replied before passing out. In the other version, a drunk Keith Moon told singer Ian Gillian, "Ian, you're new band will be go over like a purple zeppelin. It'll go deep."
"Fireball" is the fifth album by the Purp, as fans call them, and it's sandwiched between their classics "Deep Purple in Rock," in which they appear on the face of Mt. Rushmore, and "Machine Head." Often considered one of the foundational bands of hard rock and heavy metal, they don't have the popularity of acclaim of Sabbath of Zeppelin. Some of it has to due with Ian Gillan's pretty terrible singing and some it might be because of their pretty terrible lyrics, not that Zeppelin was exactly Dylan. Here's one I like, from "Strange Kind of Women": "There once was a woman, a strange kind of woman, the kind that gets written down in history, her name was Nancy."
