The latest installment of the "Iron City Rocks" podcast (web site) features brand new interviews with Steve Morse (DEEP PURPLE, DIXIE DREGS, LIVING LOUD) and JACKYL frontman Jesse James Dupree. The podcast is now available for streaming using the audio player below.
DEEP PURPLE released a live album last year called "Space Truckin' Round the World Live 68-76". The two-disc set features rare live recordings from various concerts all over the world, including gigs in Tokyo, Paris and San Diego. The compilation, which features multiple band lineups, also features a detailed history of the group, individual concert details and photos. It was released as part of the 10th anniversary of Purple Records — the label that handles the band's music.
DEEP PURPLE's 18th studio album, "Rapture of the Deep", was released in November 2005. It is the fourth studio CD from DEEP PURPLE since guitarist Steve Morse joined the band in 1994. It was also the second album to feature veteran keyboardist Don Airey.
"Rapture of the Deep" was produced by Mike Bradford, who also worked on the band's previous release, 2003's "Bananas".
"When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide", the new album from JACKYL, sold 3,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 192 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide" was released on May 4, 2010 via Mighty Loud.
JACKYL has earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation "The Hardest Working Band in Rock 'N' Roll" for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Staying true to its working-band roots, JACKYL is a staple on the summer festival circuit and maintains its commitment to every show being the sonic equivalent to a man being shot out of a cannon.
