DEEP PURPLE have spent the past few weeks at a Los Angeles recording studio working on their new album with KID ROCK producer Michael Bradford. According to a posting by bassist Roger Glover on his official web site, "The recording is going very well. I won't go into details as they are yet evolving but we have made great progress."We work in the studio each day, except Sunday, starting at eleven-ish and finishing anywhere between six and nine," the bassist continued. "It is a good regimen. There are those visions of the band sweating it out all night, recording take after take, to get it just right, losing the groove, taking a break, going back in to try again, changing the arrangement, learning the new bit, breaking a string, losing your temper, taking another break over a warm Chinese meal delivered by a dodgy looking teenager with tattoos and fangs, go back in and get as good a take as the night will allow before starting to write, record and mix the B side." "Michael is a joy to work with — professional, witty, quick, decisive, nurturing, hungry. He has a great appetite, I am in awe of the guy. He is an excellent player and writer, does all his own engineering, runs the computer, and laughs a lot. He and the band have a genuine mutual respect. He had a birthday last week and we celebrated in the studio by listening to the stuff we've done so far over a superb bottle of malt whisky, and it was good to the last drop."
