Paicey stands out by miles

Ian Paice and DP tribute band Hush in La Coruña – January 30, 2010

Deep Purple are quite simply five of the best musicians playing today. This was confirmed on Saturday – I saw Ian Paice playing with Italian tribute group Hush.

A small venue (a discotheque by the beach) holding no more than 500 people – we were right at the front. The group was good, nothing to criticise, but it made me realise just how much more than good Purple are in comparison; and the comparison is recent, I saw them at the Hammersmith in November.

Paicey was the centre of attention and was amazing. Three drum solos, one of them a double with Hush’s own percussionist. It was fun to hear Burn, Mistreated and Child in Time too. Just one gripe – at one ‘quiet’ point in the gig I asked Ian to give my son a drum stick, he said “Maybe” and then at the end gave it to the guy standing next to him …
