Deep Purple Mk VI
Ian Gillan (vcl); Roger Glover (bss); Jon Lord (kbr); Ian Paice (drm); Joe Satriani (gtr).
The American guitar-guru Joe Satriani joins the purple ranks for a short Japanese tour. Things went so well that a longer European tour was quickly organized from May to July 1994. However, no recordings have officially been released.
