It was then that classic albums as "In Rock" and "Machine Head" and equally striking singles like "Smoke On The Water" were released the second incarnation of the band (called by fans of Mark II).
The current lineup of Deep Purple has three founding members: vocalist Ian Gillan, bassist Roger Glover and drummer Ian Paice.
