History with rock and rock writing.

History with Deep Purple and Rainbow

Why is “Down to Earth” Martin’s favorite Rainbow album?

Argument that success of album had more to do with NWOBHM than with the singles of “All Night Long” and

“Since You Been Gone.”

Makin’ Love (Blackmore/Glover)

Steve Pilkington says that the “Don’t Believe that I’m a liar” sections sounds reminiscent of Kiss.
