Simon McBride kertoo liittymisestään Deep Purplen viralliseksi jäseneksi seuraavaa:

“I’m very happy to be asked to join the band. At the start of the pandemic if someone would have said to me that I was going to be the new guitarist in Deep Purple I would have just laughed, but here we are and it’s happening.

”Deep Purple has a history of great guitarists so I’m very honoured to be asked to be part of that. They are all amazing musicians and more importantly, I have become very good friends with the guys so I can’t wait to continue touring and even perhaps some writing and recording.”
