Deep Purple 2011 Documentary

Gettin' Tighter was the title of  song on the Deep Purple 1975 album Come Taste The Band.  It is also the working title of a documentary about the band in 1976, the year things totally unraveled for the group.   Taste featured Tommy Bolin, the guitarist tasked with filling the role vacated when Ritchie Blackmore left the band late in 1974 to form Rainbow with Ronnie James Dio.  By the end of the year Bolin would be dead of an overdose and the band would dissolve after a hasty farewell tour.  Insiders say ego issues flared constantly within the band, and picked-up right where they left off when the lineup featuring Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Jon Lord, Roger Glover and Ian Paice reunited for a few years in the mid 80's.
