    Is Gillan having trouble with his eyes?? He seem looking around a lot like he was trying to find something. plus he where’s those sunglasses pretty much all the time.

    Scott @ 3- Gillan is probably tired, jet lag etc! Not to mention the lighting could be too bright or in his eyes. Plus his age no doubt, the eyes do tend to play up as we get older. Cheers.

    To some extent much as I want another DP album, ,if putting it off means they have stronger material to record, I would rather wait.

    I notice Morse has that ‘glove’ on his hand, does he have a arthritis, tendonitis problem or something similar? Alex Lifeson has had it for a decade or so & is really struggling at times apparently! Cheers.

    I’m sure it will be “headlined” here and ‘credited” to someone as usual, but here is anyway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zK2vYOkiSv0&sns=fb

    What’s with the glove that Steve is wearing? Looks like a compression glove. Do hope everything is okay with his health. Rock on boys.

    While a year may seem like a long time, I’m willing to wait. Look how good the last one was following an 8 year gap between releases.
