Roger Glover biography
Having started in the group EPISODE Six, along with singer Ian Gillan, both were hired in DEEP PURPLE when Rod Evans and Nicky Simper left after their third s/t album. Both Glover and Gillan started recording with the Concerto album, and when Gillan was shown the door after the Who Do You Think We Are album, Roger Glover was also asked to leave. In the meantime, Glover was quite handy in the studio and had become the band's producer, as well as producing a few other albums, including Nazareth Razamanaz (he would later do Loud'N Proud and Rampant for them as well). He had also produced RU Dio's Elf band's two album as well the previous year and the second one in 74.

This studio aptitude made him the main artiste credited for the mega-rock opera project called The Butterfly Ball with a prestigious cast, a few months after his Purple departure. Butterfly Ball is often seen as Roger's First solo album. Considerable success plus a record producing career allowed him to take his time and record his second album called Elements, an instrumental affair with four long tracks about the four elements, released in 78.

Ritchie Blackmore invited Glover to join Ritchie Blackmore's RAINBOW, not only as a bassist, but also as a producer and songwriter in 79. Glover remained with the band until 83, producing the band's four albums.
In 84, Glover released his third solo album called Masks, which is pretty much a product of its time.
When Deep Purple reformed under its Mk II line-up, of course Roger was part of it, and he's still in the band nowadays, having become the second-more ancient member after Ian Paice (since Gillan missed a couple of albums during the 90's) and producing the vast majority of theier albums. But during this long tenure, Glover had a fair bit of activities, whether producing albums for other artistes or releasing a duo albums, the first with Ian Gillan called Accidentally On Purpose in 87 and the other called Snapshot in 02.

Glover's calling card as a producer is a rather impressive one, with albums with Rory Gallagher, Judas Priest, MSG, Eddie Hardin, Spencer Davis Group, Whitesnake and quite a few others.
