Deep Purplen “Smoke On The Water” valittu maailman parhaaksi kitarariffiksi

Deep Purplen vuoden 1972 ”Machine Head”-albumin klassikko ”Smoke On The Water” on odotetusti valittu maailman parhaaksi kitarariffiksi Classic Rockin toteuttamassa äänestyksessä tämän päiväisen World Guitar Dayn kunniaksi. Muut palkintosijalle yltäneet kappaleet yli 30 000 äänen joukosta olivat Iron Maidenin ”The Trooper” (1983) sekä AC/DC:n ”Back In Black” (1980).

Ritchie Blackmore kertoi kirjoittamastaan ”Smoke On The Waterista” vuonna 2016 Guitar Player-lehdelle seuraavaa:

I wrote the riff during a jam while we were recording Machine Head at a theater in Montreux, Switzerland. I asked [Deep Purple drummer] Ian Paice to come up with something new—a rhythm we haven’t played before—and I basically played along. It wasn’t worked out. But I was aware—mentally—of trying to write something very, very simple and straightforward. We were in this big ballroom, and Paice and I started playing the riff and a chord progression. Then, the police arrived to tell us to stop, because we were playing so loud that there were complaints. We kept the door locked so that we could keep recording that particular take. The police were hammering on the door during the final take in the last three minutes of the recording session. Had the Montreux police had their way, we never would’ve recorded “Smoke on the Water—so, no thanks to them!
