Machine Head

Smoke on The Water 50 years ago

The album Machine Head by Deep Purple was released 50 years ago today. A song with one of the most well known guitar riffs ever from that album is Smoke on the Water.

The lyrics is interesting (but also a bit silly) with a story about a burning casino and it also includes some name-droppings.

Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
