Right you are, Clarissa. Hughes played bass.
DP's lead singers, in order were:
Rod Evans (1st 3 lps), Ian Gillan, David Coverdale, Gillan again, and Joe 
Lynn Turner, as you said only for a while ('89-'93- I mean, that hardly 
counts), and Gillan yet again.

BTW, does anyone else here know the excellent www.allmusic.com ? Has 
practically everything you could want to know about practically every artist 
practically everywhere. Hardly a day goes by I don't look something up on 
it. (Though my source on the above was again the Rolling Stone R'n'R 
Encyclopedia.) I can't believe I gotta be up in 5 hours. Must go to bed.

Cheers,                             Dave
