The U.K.’s Classic Rock magazine will be releasing the Deep Purple tribute CD ‘Re-Machined: A Tribute to Machine Head’ as an upcoming Deep Purple Fanpack. 11 all new recordings of the band’s classic 1972 album performed by Metallica, Iron Maiden, Chickenfoot, Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, Black Label Society, Kings of Chaos, the Flaming Lips, Steve Vai, Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa plus Glenn Hughes & Chad Smith and more are a part of the project,to be published on September 4th.

The CD will be accompanied with an official, band-endorsed 124-page collectors magazine featuring exclusive interviews with Metallica, Maiden, Chickenfoot, Bonamassa and Vai. Deep Purple themselves also discuss the making of one of their best-loved releases, and provide access to exclusive and unpublished photos and artifacts from their archive.

The magazine also includes one of the last-ever interviews with keyboard icon Jon Lord, who died earlier this month. You can listen to a recent BBC Radio 4 interview with reclusive guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, who talked about his old band mate in glowing terms here:

Blackmore’s told Radio 4′s weekly obituary program that tells the life stories of those who have died recently, ”I’d never heard an organist play that way before. Jon had a lot of flash to his playing, which I enjoyed. And, of course, he was such an amiable person too. There was no ego there. My favourite piece of his is on Hush; his organ solo on that is just unbelievable…”

Classic Rock magazine editor Geoff Barton is currently writing a lengthy piece about Jon Lord for the next edition of Classic Rock, but you can order the exclusive fanpack that includes the CD here: www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk
