      • Who is Alerik?
      • We haven’t found out. Roger said it was Blackmore’s song name, so that he didn’t know; he seemed to remember a king Alerik from English history, but was uncertain. Another possible source is the Michael Moorcook-books, as I seem to have read a suggestion about Elric (the one with the sword named Stormbringer, y’know)’s father being called Alerik, i.e. the Son of Alerik is Elric himself. But this is highly unverified.

    • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire,_Ice_and_Dynamite
    • Movie trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqPs5AaOA9g
    • Roger Glover:
      • ‘Fire Ice and Dynamite was a movie project that was offered to us. Jon and Ian Paice were not in the States at the time and weren’t interested. Ritchie wanted to do it so we used a riff idea of his that the band didn’t want, Joe wrote some words and I constructed it in the studio, playing keyboards and drum machine. It was at a bad time in the band’s history and we were probably at our most dysfunctional. I haven’t heard it in decades but I don’t think it is any good.'”
      • Jon Lord was on tour in Europe with “Rock’n’Blues Olympic Circus” with Chris Farlowe, Roger Chapman, Tony Ashton, Pete York.
      • Roger allegedly programmed the drums, maybe using drum samples of Ian Paice playing.
