DEEP PURPLE To Work With KID ROCK Engineer/Programmer On Next CD?

In a recent interview published at, DEEP PURPLE guitarist Steve Morse discusses the upcoming PURPLE studio album and the group's plans to bring in a new producer to collaborate with on the next CD: "There is a bunch of [new material] written but we have just now met a producer which all of us like, I think. He is an American guy named Michael Bradford and he plays in KID ROCK's band, but I think he just quit that because he is in such demand as a producer. He loves DEEP PURPLE and wants to work with us and he has even thrown in some ideas for songwriting which is an interesting idea and it would help to break the predictable nature of doing another album."
