The Meaning of "Smoke on the Water "

I knew the lyrics of “Smoke on the Water” when I sang it at karaoke the other day.
I used to listen to this song without knowing the meaning.
This song was written about the accident of Frank Zappa concert, wasn’t it.
While his performing at Casino de Montreux in Switzerland,
a flare gun set off by an audience started a fire that burned down the casino,
It’s funny that such a song became a huge hit.

I watched this song on YouTube.
The man whom I thought Richie sings the 2nd verse.
He should be a guitarist!  Then who is this man?
David Coverdale?  But he is very different with David’s image.
If anyone knows him, please leave a comment.
