A year ago Pearl Drums in cooperation with Ian Paice and his local drum store DrumWright produced a very limited edition signature drum kit. Grand total of 12 kits were available and each came with a promise of an invitation to a private dinner with Paicey himself. Music Radar reports that five lucky fans made it to Oxfordshire for the dinner, with another one been invited to a meet’n'greet when Deep Purple played in Sydney, Australia.
Ronny Grindstein travelled to the dinner from Norway. “For me, this is a 35 year dream come true”, he said.
Julian Parkes travelled to the dinner from Chester. “It was an incredibly enjoyable evening. I am sure I am not the only attendee who will cherish the memory for ever.”
