Deep Purple Mk pre-VIII
Don Airey (kbr); Ian Gillan (vcl); Roger Glover (bss); Steve Morse (gtr); Ian Paice (drm).
Jon Lord hurt his knee, had to sit/lie through some surgery, and thus couldn't finish an ongoing tour. Don Airey was asked to fill in for him, in what everybody thought was a temporary replacement job. Oooh, were we fooled!
