Roger Glover: New Album "If Life Was Easy" Out In July; Artwork Unveiled
Deep PurplebassistRoger Glover's new solo album."If Life Was Easy", is scheduled for release in Europe on July 11 viaearMUSIC/Edel. The follow-up to 2002's"Snapshot"was reportedly recorded in 2007 but is only now surfacing. It featuresRoger's daughterGillian Glover, with lead vocals byRonnie Bramblett. Deep Purple's 18th studio album,"Rapture of the Deep", was released in November 2005. It is the fourth studio CD fromDeep Purple since guitaristSteve Morsejoined the band in 1994. It was also the second album to feature veteran keyboardistDon Airey. In a recent interview withQMI Agency,Gloverwas asked why it is taking so long forDeep Purple to release a new CD. "There's been disagreement in the band about whether to do another album," he replied. "They really don't make money any more. My opinion is that we are an album band and should make them even if it costs us money, because that's what we do. Maybe I'm a traditionalist, but I believe we should stay what we are. We can progress with our music, but the way we do it should be the way we've always done it. There's nothing wrong with that. An album is like capturing a moment in time. And in a band with a history like ours, those moments mean a lot.
