Notable bands that made this transition are the likes of Pink Floyd, Status Quo and Hawkwind. Other bands like led Zeppelin and the who made a similar transition but they morphed from blues type bands in the 60’s, while the likes of deep purple and black sabbath plunged straight into the deep end as fully fledged heavy rock bands of the 1970’s.
