In a recent interview with Guitar World, Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover revealed an interesting statement about their classic song “Smoke On The Water”.
Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover was asked if he’s “sick of playing’ the band’s staple 1972 tune “Smoke on the Water” after all these years, to which he replied:
“I never tire of it. I don’t listen to the song, but rather experience the crowd’s enthusiastic reaction to it. It’s a very simple and fun song to play. It’s a skeletal structure, which enables me to play different bass parts every night.
I stand in awe and watch the audience’s joy, whether it’s youngsters who have never seen us in concert, or our older fans who have seen us many times.”
