However, when the backbone of your band consists of Lord, Paice and Blackmore, well, you can write whatever the hell you like........they'll still take you into the stratosphere.
Agree Jules, that's some backbone in DP...
Many songs had... err, silly lyrics, Space Trucking
, Speed King
, Highway Star
for examples, but they're not the only culprit in the lyric's department, most rock bands had their fair share of stupid lyrics, although, if you think about it, Smoke On The Water
is not that silly considering the event which took place, maybe a simplistic vibe, but not really "silly", and who really cares when that song has become as legendary as we know it...
