I have seen them live in Paris for the first album. Men what a great freaking show. I love all five of them great musicians. And the bass player/chorist is just awsome. Not mentioning Slash and Myles - how easy it is to spot genius when you meet it
Better Purple formations : Mark II - 3 masterpieces with In rock / Machine Head and one of the best live ever Made in Japan. Other marks were good or great but Mark II is Deep Purple like Ozzy is Black Sabbath (even if I loved Dio)
Funny as these guys made me like this song I hated before. Madonna's version is just what was bad in the 80's (she did some great songs don't mistake me but this one... ugly). But this is a brand new cover with heavy guitars & drums. Way better in my opinion than the original.
Buck is indeed way way underrated. He is in my top 3 with Blackmore & Frusciante, but love so many. But Buck has done the most beautiful live solo i've heard with the version of Astronomy on An Enchanted Evening. Maybe not the most impressive technically of him but it is his most beautiful piece
I've seen them live in a festival - best band there and I also saw System of a down, Linkin Park, Paradise Lost and more. These guys are the new Deep Purple (meaning great freaking performers - the style as nothing to do of course). Best musicians live
No beverage in the title but 2 songs by the same band with a title that pretty much fit :-). I love both but Sober II is just a killer song - let me know what you think and what is your favourite if any.
R&O - Sober
R&O - Sober II
Such a Masterpiece and what a freaking band !! one of the best. Love their last album also btw. But this album is with Tyranny & Mutation and the live On your feet... one of their greatest colection of amazing songs.
