Greek heavy rockers CELLAR STONE will release their cover version for DEEP PURPLE’s classic ‘Burn’, coming out October 1st via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records! Furthermore the band has revealed the artwork of the single.
Guitarist George Maroulees comments: “…Deep Purple has influenced as a band a lot. Especially the MKIII era which introduced the line up with David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes, impact us a lot. So we pay tribute, doing it in our way, to one of the best songs ever written in the history of rock …. BURN!”
ROAR adds about the origins of ‘Burn’: “It was released on the album of the same name in 1974, and was the first song by the Mark III lineup. Written by David Coverdale, Richie Blackmore, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. The song remained the band’s concert opener for the next two years, taking over from “Highway Star”. It opened Deep Purple’s set on the California Jam two months after its release, on 6 April 1974.”
