Pretty much similar to Led Zep in a way I suppose, in regards that are they rock gods or just self indulgent boring farts? I have to admit to having never ever seen Deep Purple live. With me hating any kind of solo, I can't imagine anything more boring then seeing a drum solo, a keyboard solo, a guitar solo, and whatever else solo! There is no taking away that Deep Purple have produced some quality music throughout their long career, but are they overrated? Over to Goss (a big DP fan!).
