In conversations about innovative hard rock bands active in the 1960s and 1970s, Deep Purple often gets overshadowed by acts like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Though the band might not have had the swagger of Zep or the evilness of Sabbath, Deep Purple knows how to craft memorable hard, blues-inspired songs that stand the test of time. Singles such as "Hush," Woman from Tokyo" and "Knocking at Your Back Door" have become rock classics. Over the decades and despite a nearly decade long breakup from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, Deep Purple still puts on rocking live shows for its multi-generational fan base.
