I do love em.

Machined Head 72 that was great big hairy mofo of a record.

I mean who doesn’t get Smoke on The Water?

C’mon , I mean really. It IS Rock n fucking roll.

Just ask Peter Hook or anyone who ever rocked a joint.

Or jointed up in rock.

Love looking at the Tree names and doing a where are they now thing.

Like Glenn Hughes? He is now “The Voice of Rock”, according to his official site, where a notifier thing flashes up, soon as you hit it, for a new Live in Wolverhampton CD, the hometown of Slade legend Dave Hill and Led Zep singer Robert Plant.

So quite some rock history to be mined there.

Mind I am not sure how to put links so you will have to Google and see more about Glenn if you care or dare.

Tell Glenn we sent cha.

N You all come back now, y’hear?

I cantbut wonder , genealogically  : is there a way of drawing a family tree tracing a link between Glenn and Howard?

  1. Great post!! I do love strange cover versions. In fact I’m sad enough to have an iTunes playlist of ‘unlikely covers’. Like Kathryn Williams doing All Apologies. Although I prefer the list of ‘originals’ when a cover version is much better know. For example, to keep up the Nirvana theme, Leadbelly’s Where Did You Sleep Last Night?

    And here is a question for Deep Purple appreciators. What is your second favourite track on Machine Head? I mean, we all had it, and played it till it wore through. But can you remember anything except Smoke On The Water?
