We’ll be back in 300 years

More interviews from the red carpet at The Ivors.

Ian Gillan and Ian Paice were interviewed together, and then separately, by the MusicNewsWeb. Paicey mentioned that they’ve just spent 5 weeks in the studio in Nashville, which may or may not result in releasing something, eventually.

Ian and Ian chat with Bang Showbiz about English tea and stolen money (with Roger again standing by, trying to look busy). Watch it at msn.com.

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    5 weeks in Nashville, Paicey was playing for the whole week (Monday to Sunday) in Ronnie Scott’s while Ian Gillan flew back later and was at Ronnie Scott’s last Wednesday. Did Ian Gillan stay to record any lyrics for a potential new album? Remains to be seen!

    So, we need wonder no more: The Purps have “….messed about in the studio”, but are “…..making no promises on it…”
    Fair enough. We can hope for a new album,but ( to borrow a song title ), Don’t Hold Your Breath.

    I said it before and I will say it again. They shut themselves in the foot by all this long goodbye stuff. They may release this material in 300 years but as for now there is hunger and thurst from the fans for more new material and live shows. The show must go on. Tim Rice nice boat might be floating now but in 300 years it will be sunk and DP music will be high obove water. Peace and Long Health to u all.

    Nice to see Paicey has finally ditched the “rug” and looks fantastic a-la-natural.

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to have figured out that The Migh1ty Purps are creating another record as they hinted on the last DVD while lamenting, as a whole, that they were not giving in to The Long Goodbye Tour. Fresh and creating the next Purple gem! Viva Les Purps!!!!

    Peace,
    Ted :>

    Ian Gillan usually sits in with the music jamming/recording but finalises lyrics and recordings at a later date

    I’ve spent my whole life coming across people who “don’t really rate/get” Purple’s music. The only thing I can put this down to is that they are too “musical” for most tastes. There are many influences in their music and if you don’t recognise these, you may not realise how rich it all is/was.
    Some people get bored with “muso“ stuff such as improvised solos. I think however that people are realising just how good they were and are.
    Here’s to many more awards. Great to hear that 2 Purple songs will be in the new Tarantino film. Incidentally talking if muso stuff ….Hush features one of the best solos Jon ever recorded and Kentucky woman is the highlight for me, of Ritchies solo work from their first 3 albums (This track was on “The Book of Taliesyn”
