New Patron! Coming in at the $5 “Money Lender” Tier: Coyote Bongwater The California Jam and Stormbringer really got me hooked on Deep Purple, which lead me to this incredible podcast that has introduced me to some awesome insight about the band as well the music from the extended DP family. I’ll always support anyway I can. Steve “Down to Earth” Koeller writes in: But for me I became a Rainbow fan in 79 hearing Down to Earth. Then moved forward with JLT and then backwards to Dio. Then to Deep Purple when they reformed. Saw them in ‘85 on their reunion tour. My journey was different and never had the bias against JLT that many early Rainbow fans had.
