What I did on my vacation

While being in Italy, Ian Paice played on July 29 not a particularly widely publicized gig (at least, we didn’t know about it) with a local Pink Floyd tribute band, for a change:

Ian will do a few more appearances in Italy next month: on August 3 in Arba (Pordenone), on 4th in Cercemaggiore (with JLT appearing on the same bill), and on the 24th in Marghera near Venice.

Thanks to Nigel Young and Andrey Gusenkov for the info.

    @5 He love Italian food (and people I think…), he has many friends here…He even gave his MkIV/PAL drums kit to his Italian manager…I saw his clinics 5 times and I missed some other…

    @4 Yes, I agree…Ian Paice was very next to Lord (both for musical and kinship reasons) but, for what I know, he said nothing about Jon’s departure…really strange

    Ian Paice (04/08/2012 during the Campobasso clinic in Molise, Italy):
    “Io e Jon Lord avevamo un legame speciale, abbiamo sposato due sorelle gemelle, con lui i migliori giorni della mia carriera”.

    “…forse il più forte tra quelli che ho con il resto dei membri della band.Con lui ho condiviso momenti belli e brutti, sul palco e per strada, fin da quando abbiamo messo su i primi pezzi e prima che il mondo ci facesse notare che eravamo diventati famosi. Nell’ultimo anno, quando abbiamo appreso della sua malattia e della impossibilità che la sua vita procedesse a lungo, gli sono stato molto vicino e questo ha lasciato in me ora un ricordo ancora più bello di lui. Sono felice del fatto che non abbia sofferto, che tutto è successo in breve tempo senza una lunga agonia.”
