When Ritchie Blackmore was on the helm, Deep Purple went to Montreux, located near Lake Geneva, to make Machine Head, the rock-n-roll monolith of the band. The theater in which they were supposed to create the album was accidentally burned down when a flare gun was fired at the place by a joker. This left Deep Purple scrambling for another place where they can record the album. This escapade ended in a good result, and “Smoke on the water” was born. This earthwork stubbornly refused to go away from our brain at the Geneva auto show this year.
After he left deep purple Blackmore he started a band named Elf for musicians and the first album produced by the band was the unforgettable “Man on the Silver Mountain “and its success was owed to the Ronnie James Dio’s convincing rendering of the puzzling lyrics of the song and thus it was not tainted when it was used for the Coors commercial. The same cannot be said about the Citroën’s Mountain vibe concept based Berlingo that it would bring the same degree of seriousness to its ridiculousness.
The Mountain Vibe was scheduled for a Geneva debut, and it has a chain on tires and pink accent on the body. According to Citroën the concept brings a plethora of body reinforcements and equipments required for exploring hills, high summits, and gorge, overall enjoy the nature, in general.
If you are inclined to be another Tenzing Norgay, here is your butch for the adventure. We would advise that you call Funky Claude if he had not died two years ago and the Swiss time is fast running out, friend. He would certainly go for the low-key outing in the Alps without a qualm, we are sure. Maybe you can snare in Art Basel a guy, and he might join you on the trip.
