November 13, 1974

On this day in 1974, an imposter posing as Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore crashed a borrowed Porsche in Iowa City, IA, having already conned food and shelter from several naive Deep Purple fans.

Blackmore was with Deep Purple performing at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. Actually, Deep Purple didn’t play Iowa at all in 1974.
