Roger Glover nasceu há 66 anos

Roger David Glover (born 30 November 1945 in Brecon) is a welsh bassist, songwriter, and record producer. Glover is best known as the bassist and lyricist for the hard rock band, Deep Purple.

After spending four years with Deep Purple, where the band saw their most successful releases in the albums, in Rock and Machine Head, Glover departed after Deep Purple's second tour of Japan in the summer of 1973.
Throughout the 1970s, Glover went on to produce such bands as Judas Priest, Nazareth, Elf, the Ian Gillan Band, and David Coverdale.
In 1974, Glover released his first solo album, Butterfly Ball, and in 1978, released his second solo album entitled Elements.
From 1979 to 1984, he was the bassist and lyricist for Ritchie Blackmore's solo band, Rainbow, working on four of the group's studio albums.
In 1984, he returned briefly to his solo career, recording his third solo album, Mask. During that year, Deep Purple reformed and Glover returned to his old band where he has remained for the last two-and-a-half decades.
In 1988, Glover and fellow Deep Purple member, Ian Gillan, recorded the side-project album, Accidentally on Purpose. Almost two decades later, Glover played with Ian Gillan during Gillan's brief solo tour in 2006.
In 2002, Glover released his fourth solo album entitled Snapshot under the name Roger Glover & The Guilty Party. The album featured performances from Randall Bramblett (who shared co-writing credits on several tracks) as well as Glover's daughter, Gillian.
In 2011, Glover released his fifth solo album, If Life Was Easy, which featured guest appearances by Nazareth's Dan McCafferty and Pete Agnew as well as Walther Gallay and Daniel "Sahaj" Ticotin.
