The Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead were formed in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco in the mid 60s. The Grateful Dead is known for its massive following of hippies, environmentalists, and drug users known as deadheads. The Grateful Dead quit touring in 1995 when Jerry Garcia died from a heart attack. The Dead was a unique mixture of rock and roll, blue grass, jazz, and blues. They were known for extended jams and psychedelia. Many popular bands of today try to recreate atmosphere and style of the Grateful Dead.

Deep Purple

Deep Purple is the name of a British rock group, and is also the name of a song composed by Peter De Rose, from which the band borrowed its name. They are one of the first and most famous hard rock bands. They are considered pioneers of heavy metal, though have never considered themselves a heavy metal band. Despite their association with the sub-genre, Deep Purple have never been a heavy metal band, though many later heavy metal bands cite their influence. The group has frequently changed styles and line-ups over the years, but has always included virtuoso players in its ranks and placed a high priority on musicianship. Some incarnations of Deep Purple have brought aspects of jazz and classical influences to a rock context due to their frequent use of their songs as vehicles for extended and sophisticated solos. Today, Deep Purple steadfastly carries on in the studio and around the globe as one of history's most prolific, longest-lived, and hardest touring rock 'n roll bands. Their hit songs include, "Black Night," "Strange Kind of Woman," "Smoke on the Water" and "Hush."
