Deep Purple or Rush?

Which classic rock band do you prefer or which classic rock band do you consider better between these two?
Vote and discuss.

Deep Purple easily for me and I'm a Rush fan also. Album DP In Rock is a main reason.

Deep Purple! Not for this one alone but it's a good part of the reason:

Re: Deep Purple or Rush?

Comparing albums to albums it might be different...but Rush has a better body of work imho...I never thought that DP lived up to their rep and that Blackmore was somewhat wasted in that band. They could have done more but it seemed like the other players were not as good as him...and I'm not knocking Lord et al.

Re: Deep Purple or Rush?

Deep Purple for me, honestly I find Rush quite good but boring (Prog Rock got me bored with the years)

Perhaps my favorite by them....., but imho ..overall...
Hemispheres, Farewell To Kings, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures are all better lp's.

Deep Purple. Couldn't get past the voice of Geddy Lee but they were a talented band.
