  • This is the first song on Deep Purple's 1975 album Come Taste The Band, the first without original guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. Tommy Bolin (Blackmore's replacement), David Coverdale (vocalist) and Ian Paice (drummer) wrote the song. Bolin also played bass as Glenn Hughes (then Purple bassist) was having a few problems with cocaine. They only played it a few times live in America in 1976. >>
