Deep Purple - Smoke on the Water [Single] album download
Smoke on the Water" is a song by the English rock band Deep Purple. It was first released on their 1972 album Machine Head. In 2004, the song was ranked number 434 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time, ranked number 4 in Total Guitar magazine's Greatest Guitar Riffs Ever, and in March 2005, Q magazine placed "Smoke on the Water" at number 12 in its list of the 100 greatest guitar tracks.
Deep Purple was in the audience for the show, and lead singer Ian Gillan recalls two flares being shot by someone sitting behind him which landed in the top corner of the building and quickly set it ablaze. Deep Purple watched the blaze from a nearby restaurant, and when the fire died down, a layer of smoke had covered Lake Geneva, which the casino overlooked. So, was this a "throwaway" song to fill the album? Carlos from Caracas, VenezuelaSomebody here said Smoke on the water was covered by Iron Maiden, but I download this song and I think this is a Paul dianno& cover (first Maiden singer) not a Maiden& cover.
Smoke on the Water tells the true story of a fire ignating during a 1971 Frank Zappa concert in Montreux, Switzerland, where the band had come to record their next album, Machine Head. The song made it to number four, their first top ten since Hush in 1968. It was also their first single to receive certification, being granted a gold record by the RIAA. Smoke on the Water" Track Info. Written By Ian Paice, Jon Lord, Roger Glover & 2 more. Release Date March 25, 1972.
Deep Purple were in the audience for the concert, and lead singer Ian Gillan recalls two flares being blasted by someone sitting behind him. These flares landed in the top corner of the building and the fire quickly spread. Deep Purple watched the fire from a nearby restaurant, and when the flame was quenched, a layer of smoke had covered Lake Geneva. This picture gave bass player Roger Glover the idea for the song title and Gillan wrote the lyrics about this story. They needed one more song, so they put together "Smoke On The Water" using Gillan's lyrics and riff the guitarist Ritchie Blackmore came up with. The result was a song telling the story of these strange events just days after they happened - the recording sessions took place from December 6-21.
