Paicey, Roger, and Don having way too much fun being interviewed for France 24. Rumour has it, champagne might have been involved. Lots of it, by the looks of.

Thanks to Nigel Young for the info.

    I still don’t know why Steve is not doing any promotion. Doesn’t the guy speak proper English or what.
    I never seen the guys so happy like this. It’s so cool.

    Maybe Steve just doesn’t want to? He lives in the USA and these guys are based in Europe. It’s easier for them to take a quick flight somewhere around Europe. Why doesn’t Gillan do much promotion? Maybe he doesn’t want to either?

    A new interview with Steve about Deep Purple and other stuff has been published in the June 2017 edition of Guitar World magazine. Maybe it was just decided among the guys that Roger and Paicey would do most of the promotion, and Don a bit. Svante, good points.

    Where was that footage of don and Jon from? I’m possibly on stage or on the barrier 🙂

    Brum 2002, Dave. I was on the barrier and am visible if it’s played extremely slowly.

    It’s good to see the guys slightly juiced,loose & having fun.The promo for the album/tour was extensive and,no doubt,tiring. While it would’ve been nice to have Steve’s input,I don’t think we should read any ulterior motives into his absence.In fact,at around the 13 minute mark of the interview,the question of a reunion with any former members in answered quite definitely.The speculation can end.

    Mistake… Child in time. 1979…???
    Non madame… Was 1969 more likely…

    Long live DP family.
