Best Cover Versions of Deep Purple SongsI prefer covers by metal bands because they are the best. Also modern metal goes with Deep Purple songs.
But non-metal covers are OK, too, if they are good.
The Top Ten
It's not only the best Deep Purple cover, it's one of the best covers of all time.
Vox by Dio - Dio did a great job on this one. There's only a live version but it's great (from the live album On Stage, 1977).
Just a great song
Jorn Lande is amazing again.
Watch the video on youtube - Kerrang called it "the greatest array of hard rock talent ever assembled".
In 1989, artists from Pink Floyd, Queen, Rush, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Yes, Iron Maiden and others joined forces to raise funds for people affected by the Armenian earthquake.
Guitars - David Gilmour, Brian May, Tony Iommi, Ritchie Blackmore, Alex Lifeson
Vox - Ian Gillan, Bruce Dickinson, Paul Rogers, Bryan Adams
Keyboards - Keith Emerson, Geoff Downes
Bass - Chris Squire
Drums - Roger Taylor
The best cover of this song by far. Awesome!
One of the best Deep Purple covers on this list.
A great cover, moreover it's a live version.
This speed metal band did a great job on Speedking. The singer screams not worse than Ian Gillan and their sick drummer put some extras.
Thanks to whoever added this - I completely forgot about this version.
Monument is a new metal band from The UK, formed circa 2010.
I love Black Night and I'm glad Monument did this awesome cover.
Vox: Jeff Scott Soto
In general this cover is very good, despite they skipped the keyboard solo and the legendary screams
This is a very extreme cover as you can guess.
This is a ska version, it sounds so funny.
From the 2012 tribute album "Re-Machined: A Tribute to Deep Purple's Machine Head"
