that favourite guitarists thread had me thinking and listening to some music i havent heard in ages. while some have grown cheesy over time, deep purple still sound brilliant! they had an amazing sound.


i never owned all of their albums but i remember in the 80s i wore out this (tape Oops) 3x.

Sure, cheesy, but DP have their moments. Always loved the hammond arpeggio solo @ 2:14 Falcon

By that definition, is all hard rock (of that era) cheesy?

This forum has seen way more unworthy bands being hyped (*cough Radiohead *cough) than Deep Purple.

I wouldn't say all hard rock of that era is cheesy, but high-pitched screaming voices and lots of testosterone-driven guitars somehow kind of make me cringe.

What's to not like about Radiohead? (nah, wait - don't answer - I'm glad it's all personal likes and dislikes Xyxthumbs)

I quite like Thom Yorke. Icon_razz
But I did despise Radiohead at some point, because EVERYBODY was loving it and playing it and talking about it. Like the lyrics in Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip song say: "Radiohead - just a band".

I happily admit I like quite some late 60s/early 70s Hard Rock like Cream, Black Sabbath or Deep Purple

Me, too Smile

Although I find the term "Hard rock" misleading. For me that's an 80ies thing and Deep Purple kind of were the forerunners of Iron Maiden or Poison. Hence a bit cheesy imo.

Me too. Songs like Child In Time or King Crimson's "Epitaph" (version with "March for No Reason/Tomorrow and Tomorrow") are pure masterpieces imo.
