  • Description

    California Jam 1974, the Woodstock for hard rock fans, witnessed Deep Purple's Mk III debut with David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes. Despite replacing rock legends Gillan and Glover, the band set the stage on fire (literally) with an explosive performance fueled by "feuds" and raw energy. Guitarist Ritchie Blackmore smashed guitars and amps, while a pyrotechnic mishap added to the fiery chaos. Yet, amidst the mayhem, their "Burn" album shone, showcasing the power and diversity of Mk III. Hughes recalls it as a defining moment for heavy rock, capturing the essence of the era before MTV and leaving a lasting testament to the band's evolution. This electrifying performance cemented Deep Purple's place in the history of arena rock.
