the longer story goes like this: the year had to be 1970, 71 or 72. can't remember exactly. and they were playing on Long Island, NY - at a park outdoors. i went down with a bunch of friends in a very tiny car- about a 2 or 3 hour drive...drinking and smoking the entire way. when we got there - it turned out that Deep Purple had gotten separated from their equipment. so, the band was there - but, their equipment wasn't. the plan was that they would come back the very next day and play. so, we went home and came back the next day - and repeated our partying adventure. Fleetwood Mac was one of the opening acts. but, Deep Purple was definitely the one to see. i saw them years later with my older son in Hartford, CT. they were still good - but, not like their heyday.
