    The most talented people in the world are the most humble. MR Ian Paice you are not an exception to the rule๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Very nice of Ian to answer my question about his hearing (-loss). I think he is very honest about it.
    If you are reading this Ian, thanks a lot!

    About the possibility of working on their 22nd studio album is music to my ears!

    Ian is forgiven, but he mispronounces Neil Peart’s last name like most people do. It’s

    – not “Purt” as in hurt or heard,

    – not “Pairt” as in pear or wear,

    – not “Part” as in heart,

    – it’s “Peert” as in weird or hear!!!

    See, you learn something new everyday here at The Highway Star, the website devoted to the betterment of English pronunciation (when Ronnie Romero isn’t singing, that is)! ; – ) And, no, I didn’t pronounce it correctly until recently either. Hey, I’m a Kraut, how should I know?!

    Not that Deep Purple members haven’t suffered too: In Germany, in the 70ies, “I-an” (as in Ryan) and “Jillan” were popular mispronunciations of Ian Gillan or Little Ian. And “Rooger Gloover” was frequent too. As is “Jibson” for Gibson (the guitar brand) to this day.

    I am really really becoming a fan of Paicey’s talking as well as drumming!
