Casinos: Deep Purple and Blue Oyster Cult at Thunder Valley

When Deep Purple was formed, it was named after original guitarist Richie Blackmore’s grandmother’s favorite song, connecting the band (obliquely) to the likes of Artie Shaw, April Stevens and Dean Martin – a touch of irony because the song’s gentle strains have nothing whatsoever to do with the band’s sound.
