1. Has there ever been talk about making a movie about Deep Purple?
2. Do you like the idea?
It seems to me that the story of Deep Purple would translate quite nicely into a feature length movie. The music, the drama, the highlights, the lowlights, and the music (did I mention music?) would tell an incredible tale.
2. Now you mention it...you're talking about a big thing. Who could tell such a story?
I was talking to a journalist today, he said he was doing some research for the interview and he got into the Deep Purple Family Tree. He said it was more like a jungle than a tree. I often get asked about our past and generally I shift the focus to the present and the future...because we are a living thing; but I imagine someday someone is going to tell the definitive story of Deep Purple.
I don't know, but I would think that everyone who has ever been connected with the band will carry some good feelings from the experience, but will each have a different perspective; what's the real story?
Would it be a docu/drama? Or a wonderful (but probably self-serving) story, say from my point of view, or Ritchie's, or David Coverdale's?
Objective or Subjective? Critic or Fan? Fiction or Truth?
Did you ever see a movie called 'Sweet Liberty'? With Alan Alda, Michael Caine and Bob Hoskins.
I prefer to stick to the music, but I will admit it's a great story, if anyone was ever to get it right.

That was Ian Paice on drums and Roger Glover was bass. Tha banjo player's name is Steve Morse. No, he's not new. He's been with us around nine years now, but still complains he's treated like the new boy when there aren't any Doctor Peppers in the cooler on the bus...because he's been flying his plane around for the last week and the rest of us drink beer like men. The real new boy is Don Airey, who's taken over the keys this year from Jon Lord.
I realise this is a spoof letter Howie, so I'm holding nothing and I call four.
I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! I wish you all the happiness, love and joy in the world! Good luck to you and the rest of the guys in Deep Purple. Keep it up!
My question is: what was the most memorable birthday in your life?
In answer to your question, the answer is simple...this one.
In a break from the tour, with my family, at home. The weather is fine and we had a party over the weekend with some friends.
Monday, my birthday, I sat by the pool, writing. Then later on some relatives came over and we had a barbecue.

Thanks for reading my e-mail.
Regarding WDWTWA 2002, thanks, I agree. I think Roger Glover did a great job.
Regarding the Philly area (PA?) and Ted Nugent, we did that quite recently John.
I haven't met Jane, no I don't have access, really..No, really. But I will look her up the next time I'm in Melbourne. See if we can get you online with her.
How about Shelley Winters in The Poseidon Adventure? I never met her either, but I do have a picture.
Can't say those series spring to mind, but I do like cartoons.
