I've seen all these other supergroups and 80's metal dudes play classic covers on youtube and they were all "meh" to me (even so cheesy at times)..

...until I saw this cool clip today.

That IS one of the better versions of that song I've heard. Most times, without the organ, it sounds like crap. But that's a great version.

they have this on the Re-Machined Deep Purple tribute album
a very listenable project, which is not always the case with tributes
I particularly liked Joe B's cutting strat tone

Here is a documentary on the making of it

That's how you read the lyrics and still do a killer performance!

I ran across this cover of Highway Star a few months ago. Likewise, it just blew me away. This version just rocks to the core and they gave the tune it's due justice.

Organ? pfffffft!

...it would only have gotten in Satrianis' way. (Let that boy boogie-woogie)

Great. Joe's guitar sound is HUGE. What amps is he using ? I don't see any of his new Marshalls but thought I spotted a Cornford.

awesome. huge Purple fan and that song is the one that inspired me to play guitar. Joe does a great job and makes a valiant effort to duplicate the organ sound.

Thanx! Enjoyed that! My favorite version was from the mid '80's from Metal Church (LOVE the vocals on that track)

There's no denying that was excellent (unless you hate rock music, that is).
