Fact: Smoke on the Water is true tale about a fire in 1971 that destroyed a Switzerland casino. A Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention concert was held in the casino’s theatre which caught fire when a fan fired a flare gun into the rattan covered ceiling. Smoke from the fire spread across a lake that separated a hotel (where Deep Purple were staying) from the casino. DP watched the destructive blaze from their hotel room.
Approximate value: $100
