This is Don Airey, from the Don Airey Band

Don Airey was interviewed in Austria by the Mulatschag TV. Plenty of amusing anecdotage from his illustrious career. He also mentions that he has recorded an album of piano jazz pieces, which shlould be coming out later this year.

And just to make the things even more interesting, we’ll leave you with his band’s performance of Child in Time on March 22:

Mini Suite from Prague on March 21:

Thanks to Blabbermouth for the info, and to Franko Koch and chotovice for the videos.

    Dear Ian.First of all.I agree music is a good thing and make people come togeather.But in that case the things it is very clear.Turks took half Cuprus by force kill thousands Greek cypriot people rape all the woman of the island made things that only wild animals do and still posees the land illegal till now.So you tell me that if someone rape your daughter your wife and kill many of your family take your home after that you will sing for this person???If you go there there will be not only your biggest mistake but you will saw disrespect for all of thousands dead people the women that were raped and you will lose so many fans that follow you all those years.Now it is time to saw not how big musisians you are but how big people you are by respect or not a nation that have suffer so much and stil suffer till now.It is your choice…

    I love the exposure and attention Don is getting at present. The spotlight on him is giving testimony to his accomplishments and unbelievable array of his contribution to so many extremely talented and famous musicians. What incredible company he has kept over the years. Talk about underrated, he is the epitome and I must say that being in Deep Purple is the perfect place for him and it brought about that spotlight. Having to step in for Jon Lord for 4 gigs and here we are 12 years later with him being cast into the forefront more and more is long overdue.

    The band he is playing with on this solo venture is on fire. These 2 live performance videos have me aching to see them live. More than likely they won’t make it to the States, so PLLLLLLEEEEAAASSSSE record a proper video for DVD release.

    He is playing so hard and versatile on all of this. Just SUPER!!!
