Deep Purple: Victims Of Their Own Fame

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 8 April 1972

DEEP PURPLE'S new album Machine Head comes to you courtesy of the Rolling Stones' redoubtable studio manager Ian Stewart who saved their famous mobile recording studio from the flames of Switzerland's Montreux Casino when Frank Zappa was performing there and someone had the bright idea of firing a flare gun into the rafters.
