    I’ve been a fan since Machine Head and I’m glad you are still making people smile with your music.
    Never stop doing what you love to do.

    Hi, Roger,
    I´m very much looking forward to hearing the new Infinite record, I´m convinced it´s going to be a truly great one! On the promo snippet it sounded a little different productionwise compared to the also Bob Ezrin produced Now What! Ian has heavier and bigger drum sounds, different than what he has had usually before. The snippet sounded very good and promising! I believe with the infinite title being spelled the way it is hints that this could be your last studio record. I understand that no matter how much I would like to hear new music from you for the years to come, you can´t go on forever with the very ardenous and demanding task of creating new music and records. I hope very much this isn´t your last record, though! In any case, I thank you all for all the years of joy and happiness you have given me through your music for the past fortysomething years! I´m looking for many more years of Deep Purple music!

    Happy Birthday to you, Roger!
