4 Rocking Cities in England That Will Make You Sing Along
4. The Perfect Strangers of Hertfordshire
Yes, some Perfect Strangers – that’s what Deep Purple were when they started off as a promising band in Hertfordshire. They’re still perfect, but not so strangers anymore.
Deep Purple, one of the first and most famous rock bands, is considered to be a heavy metal pioneer. Despite this association, they’ve never played heavy metal in its purest form, though many younger metal bands said that the British group has been a major influence for their music. Some of their most singed-along songs are Child in Time, Soldier of Fortune, Black Night, Smoke on the Water, Perfect Strangers, Hush and Highway Star.
Hertfordshire, the home of Deep Purple, will indulge you into an entertaining journey. So once you’re here, turn on your headphones, select your favourite Deep Purple playlist, and start walking. You have to check out the Verulamium Park, the Fairlands Valley Park, and the Aldenham Country Park. Enjoy the ride! Next, feel like a Child in Time at the Knebworth House and the Hatfield House and explore the Royston Cave. Take your time, the Black Night hasn’t come yet!
Wow, that was a unique adventure! You’ve learned a lot about the artists you’re listening to day after day and you’ve been in the places that inspired them to write your favorite tunes! Lucky you!
