    Very good video. Ian Paice is wise and erudite in explaining his philosophy. The only thing I’ve ever heard him say that I thought was wrong was when he said a number of years back that it would be “hypocritical” to mend fences with Ritchie Blackmore, given all of the harsh words spoken in the past. No, it’s called learning from your mistakes and learning to forgive. I do think Bob Ezrin has been good for the band, because when you have passionate personalities you have disagreements. That passion is what has always made Purple good. But it’s all what has driven them apart. If they had a referee years ago, the Mark II lineup would not have dissolved so quickly. I think the time away will freshen the band, because they’ve been touring for so long it gets repetitious, even for the fans.

    Oh my god, it’s Ritchie’s old hat from the “Burn”-album, I guess…

    Take Care and have a nice Day!

    By the way: I like “Whoosh!” with the exception of “Step by Step”.

    If I wasn’t misled, seems like there can be ANOTHER album in the not-so-far-away future. (?!!!)

    In the end, we’ll still have to thanks this f####g C-19. (:))

    They are wise, something else.

    By the way, Whoosh! is really great. All of it. Thank you big big.
