They never go to three…

Roger Glover and Ian Paice sit down with the Rock Antenne to answer the burning questions: is this the final tour? Is this the final album? Is this the end of Deep Purple? Why you can’t please everybody with the setlist? And most importantly, why do sound techs never count to three?

Thanks to Nigel Young for the info.

    Agree with the 2 hour gig comments! Anything after that can become ‘too much’ in many ways! It also comes down to stamina & other potential health issues! Rush for one example, played for too long in my book! Approximately 3 hours each night from what I have read over the last decade or more, too much for Neil Peart the drummer, now look what has happened! Worn out with health concerns & also the time factor with his family is another issue! Good interview with Glover & Paice, good luck with finishing on your own terms! Cheers.

    Great interview! But a sad day is coming. Like Roger said “I can’t imagine a world without Deep Purple” I hope this tour does last 2 – 3 years and they go through America twice. I believe health will dictate the end.

    As sad as it is , your body gets old . You have to travel, keep a schedule ,and try to not get sick. They have done it many years .But there will come a time when somebody can’t do it. So , go out and play your ass off and enjoy what’s left of life . Farewell chaps . So glad I saw them as many times as I did .

    I really enjoy such interviews because the guys from Purple, all five, are very humble, down to earth, likable people. The question of ending Purple is a very personal one for them which shows you how much these guys love the band. The interviewer is right about the fact that it also puts an end to the very close relationship they’ve enjoyed for so many years – it has to be tough. Man, the thought of not having Purple anymore puts a lump into my throat – especially after watching such interviews. On the other hand at some point it’s time to move on and maybe discover something new to cherish.
