Deep Purple’s Roger Glover says that every album is potentially their last

Deep Purple‘s bassist Roger Glover talked about “Whoosh!”, the new album of the band in an interview with Detroit’s WRIF radio. The musician said that every Purple album is potentially their last one.

Roger Glover said about Deep Purple’s new album “Whoosh!”:

“Well, it was recorded last year, actually, so the COVID thing didn’t come into it, although I have to say some of the lyrics kind of have a disturbing connection. Yeah, ‘Whoosh!’, 21st album, 50 years in the making. Every album is potentially our last album. We thought the last album was the last album, but there’s another one. So we just keep going”.

“I remember Jon Lord once described Deep Purple as an atomic toy, it just keeps going.” Whoosh!” was once again helmed by Canadian producer Bob Ezrin (Kiss, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper), who also worked on the band’s last two studio albums, 2017’s “Infinite” and 2013’s “Now What?!”

“Meeting Bob Ezrin changed everything eight years ago. He came to see us play in Toronto and we had a meeting with him the next morning and he just said some great stuff. He sort of encouraged us to be us: ‘You don’t need to write anything that you think people are gonna expect. Just stretch out and be yourselves.’ And that was great advice. And making the album was such a joy. They’ve all been a lot of fun.”

“We don’t start an album with any kind of plan; it just happens, like life,” Glover explained. “We jammed for about eight, nine days — something like that — and we’d come up with a bunch of stuff and then pick and choose what we wanna work on. And it goes from there, and it sort of evolves. We don’t write songs; we just let them evolve. Because the five of us are all throwing bits and pieces in towards it. We record all together in the same room; we don’t layer stuff. We’re a live band, and so we play live in the studio.”
