Morning Cup o’ Metal
Sherman, this is Mr Peabody. Prepare the way-back machine for the year 1972 where we’ll trace the beginnings of the heavy metal movement that got its beginnings in the UK. Deep Purple has enjoyed a huge amount of success and for being one of the originating heavy-metal groups (goes to show what was considered heavy 36 years ago huh?). Their sixth studio album Machine Head is probably one of the most successful rock albums of all time and deserves a listening if you’re a fan of metal at all. The track featured today “Highway Star” should sound familiar to all of you young whores out there because it was the opening track to EA’s Rockband, you know the video with the group constantly getting better and better touring vehicles? Yeah you have Deep Purple to thank for that song, you’re welcome.
