Smoke on the Water: SteelConnect


SD-WAN in the sky

Deep Purple released one of the most iconic guitar riff songs of the 70s with their hit Smoke on the Water. They were inspired to write the song overlooking the aftermath of a fire that was started by a flare gun in the Casino at Montreux Switzerland where they were planning on recording their sixth album.
