Personally I'd say no. I've never heard anyone describe the Purps as anything other than hard rock/heavy metal, and ditto for the spinoff bands, Rainbow and Dio, even though the latter could certainly be considered prog in terms of lyrical content for some songs, and the former produced "Rising", which I would consider a candidate for a prog album...
