    Deep Purple was not on Isle of Wight. In August 1970 ... Deep Purple on USA Tour.

    Por cierto,¿estabais allí todos los que os habeis apuntado? By the way, I wonder if you all actually were there. Did you? Je me demande si tous ceux qui sont inscrits y ont réellement assisté.C'est la vérité vraie? Eu pergunto-me se tudo o que você tem aí referido estuvistes ali. É isso correto?

    Cartelazo efectivamente. Para mí fue el último de los grandes festivales de los 60. Aunque a nivel de organización y ambiente, fue mucho mejor el de Rotterdam a principios de este verano, el Holland Pop Festival en el Kralingse Bos. Poco después perdimos a Jimi y Jim. Eran las últimas boqueadas del jipismo así que yo cambié de ambiente y me vine pa Sevilla donde el underground estaba al rojo vivo con Gualberto, Julio Matito, Smash, Triana y compañía.
