On Saturday November 5, the DEEP PURPLE classic "Smoke on the Water" was the focus of Germany's biggest TV show, "Wetten, Dass..?", on ZDF. 250 guitarists gathered in Mannheim, Germany to play the classic PURPLE riff together with German actor Uwe Ochsenknecht ("Das Boot", "Männer"). A video clip of the event can be found at the bottom of this page (click on "Stadtwette").(Thanks: The Highway Star)
