DeepPurpleCommunity interviews Don Airey

The Deep Purple Community on Facebook conducted an interview with Don Airey in August 2014….

“The success of NOW What?! was overwhelming, the album is still in the TOP50 of Amazon Germany’s music charts, sitting at #2 in the Hard Rock charts right today. [the questions to the Don were sent in August 2014]. Did it came as a big surprise for you? Are you expecting the same, or, probably even better reception for a follow up next year? Fans are joking that Deep Purple returned in mainstream fashion for the third time with NW?!

The success of Now What was a real big surprise in every way, and one of the nicest too! When you make a record you don’t actually expect anything. Just hope you can get it finished, mixed, mastered, and delivered somewhere near the deadline. So at the moment we are entertaining no hopes of the ambitious kind for the next record, if and when we get it finished, but obviously our fingers are crossed. ”

    I remember the words of some DP members …
    A record is not a commercial thing. Records are not selling so much in this time …

    … with greeting from the record company … because they sell and sell and … $$$$ …

    But the important thing is for us … :

    We – the fans – will get a new record soon 😉 😉

    Now What is a classic. MK8 made a record they can be proud of. It is up there with DP’s best work!
