Lord, classically trained, became the group's focal point in 1970 with the grandiose Concerto for Group and Orchestra, an artistic and commercial disaster. Later, Blackmore assumed control. "When we first started out, we weren't quite sure what we were doing," the now-departed Black-more said last summer. "We were playing with orchestras and things, which was kind of a novelty idea. By the end of 1970 I said, 'Look, I've had enough of playing with orchestras. We're a rock 'n' roll band and we're gonna make a rock 'n' roll record.' Consequently, we recorded Deep Purple in Rock, and that took off. We didn't play with an orchestra ever again." Then, in 1972 with Machine E coming back Head and its Made in Japan album, Deep Purple made its biggest impact. Along with Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Grand Funk Railroad and Alice Cooper, it helped forge heavy metal and for a time was as popular as any group in the world. By 1974, Deep Purple had sold close to 15 million albums. But its heyday would be a brief one. Personality clashes and headbutting over musical direction began to blow the band apart. Gillan left in 1973, Lord in 74. In 75, Blackmore split to form the modestly successful Rainbow with singer Ronnie James Dio. Deep Purple would remain a group for a number of years, but in name only. Original singer Evans could be found fronting lineups on the bar circuit through the early '80s. The "classic" lineup reformed in '84 but the magic was long gone. More breakups, re-formations and personnel changes occurred on an almost yearly basis (the most recent Purple album was The Battle Rages On in 1993). By Buddy Seigal Los Angeles Times Deep Purple first began to disturb the world in 1968, operating out of London. The group which included singer Rod Evans, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, bassist Nicky Simper, keyboard player Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice patterned itself after psychedelia-mongers Vanilla Fudge and Leslie West's ear-bleeding Mountain. The band scored two hits right out of the gate, with covers of Joe South's Hush and Neil Diamond's Kentucky Woman from its first album. The current lineup includes original members Lord and Paice, longtime members Roger Glover and Ian Gillan and American guitar wizard Steve Morse, who replaced Blackmore. The band plays the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre Sunday night. In 1969, Evans and Simper were dumped to clear space for bassist Glover and singer Gillan, coalescing what has come to be I !
