The great thing about “Burn” and this is a great question, by the way. We had written the album and let’s just say we had written six or seven songs, I was down at the pub with Ritchie and he said to me, “We are one song short.”

Cudos go to Anthony Toto who conducted this mighty fine interview with Glenn shortly before The Classic Deep Purple Tour kicked off in America.
