Encyclopedia > Rod Evans

Rod Evans (born January 19, 1945 or 1947 in Slough, Berkshire) is a British singer and a founding member of Deep Purple in 1968. He was replaced as their vocalist by Ian Gillan in 1969 after three albums. After his departure, Deep Purple became a heavier outfit, when with Rod it had a more progressive and pop drive.

After leaving Deep Purple, Rod went on to form Captain Beyond, along with former Johnny Winter drummer Bobby Caldwell, former Iron Butterfly bassist Lee Dorman and guitarist Rhino (Larry Reinhardt), who also was part of the last incarnation of the Butterfly. This band proved to be very influential, but sales never reflected their musical achievements. Someone also called them sci-fi rock, but anyway their first self-titled album became a rarity, because it was only distributed by Capricorn records, a small label from Macon, Georgia, who also held the Allman Brothers Band at the time.

Following the incident, Evans left the music business again, and has remained reclusive ever since. His current whereabouts are of much interest to many Deep Purple fans.
