VIDEO: Deep Purple tribute album preview

A video preview of the new Deep Purple tribute album has been issued.

"Re-Machined: A Tribute To Machine Head" is a compilation CD featuring re-interpretations of Deep Purple’s landmark 1972 album with songs recorded by Metallica, Iron Maiden, Chickenfoot, Black Label Society and more.

The first preview features a look at Aussie music legend Jimmy Barnes and guitarist Joe Bonamassa’s cover of “Lazy.”

“I’m a huge Deep Purple fan,” says Barnes. “As a young kid, one of the reasons I wanted to get into a rock n’ roll band was to be as loud as Deep Purple.”

The disc will be available on September 4 with Classic Rock magazine's Deep Purple fanpack, and in stores on September 25.

Deep Purple’s most successful record, “Machine Head” reached number 1 in the UK and stayed in the top 40 for 20 weeks; it reached number 7 in the United States, remaining on the Billboard 200 for 118 weeks.
