Song of the Day: Deep Purple, “Highway Star”

Happy 78th birthday to Ritchie Blackmore, lead guitarist for Deep Purple and Blackmore’s Rainbow. Deep Purple’s 1972 album Machine Head was their sixth, and contained their iconic hit, "Smoke On The Water," which told the story of making the album using The Rolling Stones’ Mobile Studio and the problems they encountered when the Montreux Casino they had booked to record the album burned down. "Highway Star" is the lead track on the album and has some incredible guitar playing.
