Funky Claude was running in and out

December 6th, 2001

Adam Curry, in one of his true-life rock’n’roll stories, this one about Robert Palmer but with a small bit about Deep Purple:

A little known fact is that Deep Purple’s anthem Smoke on the Water was not only recorded in Montreux, but is about a mishap there.

Funny that it’s a “little known fact” when it’s all spelled out right there in the lyrics. You gotta be high on drugs not to get the connection.

Oh yeah, Deep Purple. Nevermind.
