Mistreated – Deep Purple (cover) By Ken Tamplin

In honor of David Coverdale and Deep Purple recently being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, I decided to pay a tribute to David (and Glenn) by doing a cover of Deep Purple’s “Mistreated.”

  1. Always enjoy Purple. A band of highlights and no bad tracks. Always an album band, as opposed to a singles band. With Rod Evans, Ian Gillian, David Coverdale and Glen Hughes (there’s one for another singing bassist top tens) and with Ritchie Blackmore, and some of the names that have played in the band even for a short time such as Joe Satriani, adding they still tour after all those line up changes, even after the passing of the great Jon Lord. Thanks Ken, I may have missed that era,, but it is was my dad listened and listens to. A band unlike any other.

      Donna, thank you very much for the kind compliment. David Coverdale is one of my favorite vocalists, so it makes me feel good for you to even say I’m anywhere close to sounding good like he does. My hat is off to David for his great career of rocking us all for so long, so well!

    1. um, David Coverdale originally sung this one, so it’s not even fair to compare to Glenn. Glenn merely covered it later and performed it extremely differently.

  3. Ken that is magnificent. My sister is an opera singer and I sat through all her lessons and you blew me away ….wow

    Your voice always brings a bit of Paul Rodgers and the rest just flows. As always you delivered the song great and for what a song we are talking about: a very powerful one, maybe the best song of Deep Purple.

    I think this vocal is extremely difficult. To hold the mix with this power requires a lot of control! Insane! You (as always) rock!!!
