Roger David Glover (born 30 November 1945 in Brecon) is a Welsh bassist, songwriter, and record producer. Glover is best known as the bassist for the hard rock band, Deep Purple. Glover wrote the guitar riff on "Maybe I'm a Leo".
Born near Brecon, Wales, Glover moved with his family to St Helens before settling in the South Kensington area of London, at the age of ten. Around that time, Glover's interests started to shift towards rock music, and by the time he was thirteen, Glover began playing guitar. He later moved to the North London district of Pinner and while at Harrow County School for Boys Glover formed his first band, Madisons, with a group of friends, which later merged with a rival band to become Episode Six, a band which later featured Glover's future Deep Purple bandmate, vocalist Ian Gillan.
