Rather than try to include links to every Deep Purple-related site out there, we're just including some of our favourite places to go to -
either because they're useful for news, good to look at, or well put together (and sometimes all three!).
Deep Purple General Sites "Deep Purple's Offical Fan Community website." This is the band's new official site, set-up by a merchandising company (who run many other websites for sport stars and celebrities) with some band input. It's early days yet for this new site in Japan which aims to try and bridge the gap between English and Japanese fans, with information in both languages. It is based (with permission!) on the look of deep- and so far has an illustrated discography of all the current Japanese edition CDs, a 'rare things library' with shots of the limited edition vinyl reissues, and the promise of more to come. "The official Deep Purple site for all press and promoters and anything business related.." It's now unclear who runs this site or what it aims to do, especially since the band took over (ie without the dash!).
