Something to look forward to

An interview with Ian Paice will appear on the Rob Sas Rock Show tomorrow, January 5, 2021. The show is on the air between 1-3pm Central // 7-9pm GMT via Pure Rock Radio. It should also (eventually) appear in the show archives. Paicey’s previous appearance on the show was quite delightful, so we’re all looking forward to it.

In the meantime, we can entertain ourselves by listening to Don’s interview on the same show from 3 months back (that would be some time in September-October 2020, in the wake of Whoosh release).

In other Paicey related news, he has reached out to the two young drummers he had featured on his DrumTribe youtube channel — Sina and Yoyoka:


Hello Ladies,
I hope you are both safe and well.
While we are in this “lockdown” situation and not able to play our music in the normal way,I thought you might like to have a bit of drumming fun.
Obviously we can,t meet personally at this time,(apart from the Covid situation we are in different parts of the world!).
I was thinking of creating something between the 3 of us . Nothing serious or demanding,and definitely “not” a drum “battle”.
More like an orchestral percussion section,working with,and for each other.
As we all know, the technology available to us today allows us to do this as if we were in the same room.

I have thought no further than this at the moment,but as we have all had positive responses to our clips on You Tube,it could be fun to do something together.

Let me know if its something you may enjoy doing and I will start working out the details.

Get back to me with a “yes” or “no” through the ipdrumtribe@yahoo email.



Both girls promptly accepted the invitation. So there’s something else in the pipeline to look forward to.

Thanks to Akemi Ono for the heads up.

    Nice, all these media for our boys. But what I’m really looking forward to is the Whoosh tour 2021. They guys are not getting any younger ; ) Especially big Ian and Roger are seniors now. Let’s hope they all stay healty and that the Whoosh tour can happen this year. That album is so good and songs like We’re the same in the dark, Nothing at all and The long way round deserve to been played lice. Let’s hope!

    About Aireight: Yes, you are right!Let’s hope those 3 will have that “some music” together via internet!
    About Mr Ian Paice:You are a very kind and a supportive heart for these younger drummer ladies! And you are always finding the positive side of the things! And Your drumming has always been that something really special, even when I first time heard Fireball, it was something enormous and also that Living Wreck -those drum intros, etc. Thank You very much!

    Ian Paice is THE true star of Deep Purple.
    I wish the other Ian, had just 10% of that attitude

    I am looking forward to it not being the Whoosh tour.
    The problem being – if they do record another album and it is as good as Whoosh – what do they drop.
