Not much of a carpenter

Edel had run a contest to interview the band in conjunction with the Whoosh! release. Anssi Herkkola from Finland was the winner and got to speak with Roger Glover and Don Airey. This produced a quite relaxed conversation with some off the beaten path questions. And good old THS gets a namecheck at the end. Enjoy!

    Hilarious. Roger and Don have great senses of humor. Yeah, don’t take opinions about music too seriously. Everyone’s got different tastes.

    Lovely…… great job, and to be honest….. they ( deep purple ) are still
    interested in fans opinions. I liked it a lot.

    …my questions for DP ,but I will never got an answer, but anyway….. the setlist….I wander
    isn’t there a possibilty to bring a live album with songs we never ever heard live , for example,
    watching the sky, never a word, blood from a stone, a castle full of rascals, the cut runs deep, solitaire, the spanish archer, clearly quite absurd, all I got is you…..

    ……would be something for the real fans to hear this songs live !!

    I would have loved to have done this interview. I have a million questions that I have never heard the answer to. He did a good job and nice to find out they may record some new material. He got an exclusive with that one. Roger, you say you read these comments so I hope you read this one. ” You are the coolest guy I have ever met in my life” Always a gentlemen and nothing but class. Can’t wait for an American tour!

    @Tony: Watching the sky has been performed live along with the concerto. You can find it on the double album from ’99 with the LSO live at the Royal Albert Hall
