Doogie White saves the day & Buy a lesson from Paicey

Doogie White, who has recently parted ways with Yngwie Malmsteen, came to the rescue of a Purple tribute band at a charity gig in UK:

Disaster was turned to triumph for another local act on the night after Deep Purple tribute band the Purple Project from Newbury lost their lead singer after developing laryngitis.

At the last minute the band called up Doogie White, lead singer from Rainbow, a band set up by Deep Purple’s guitarist Ritchie Blackmore in 1975, and Mr White gave the audience a performance to remember.

Ah, and the real news here is that Rock of Ages is running an auction of celebrity memorabilia, with the top prize of a private lesson with Ian Paice. The auction, which is running on eBay, closes on Sunday, March 9, at 8.15pm (UK time). Place your bids now!

Thanks to getreading for the info.

Update (March 16th): the auction for lesson with Paicey has raised £789. Congratulations to the very generous winner kyethedog!

    Just to say that I have seen Purple Project several times and it was a great shame that Paul, the regular singer, was unable to perform but great credit to Doogie for stepping in and putting in an excellant performance. Well done to him and the rest of the band for kicking off what was a terrific evening.
