    Hi Jason, What a fantastic interview!!! Great to hear the words from Nick concerning the beginnings of Deep Purple… I hope you get a chance to interview him again – you know, like, after the Shades album, the orchestral part of the band, Rod Evans (and where he may be, would he like to try and reform Mark 1 (imagine that!!!)… just an idea… keep up the great work!!
