A possible surprise

Behind the scenes video from the Infinite writing sessions. The band is working out a tune that eventually became one of the gems on that album.

Special thanks to Ian Paice Drumtribe.

    You can tell there’s the potential for a dramatic,interesting song here.Varied chords and dynamic tension.The Surprising has power.
    In comparison,I got the complete opposite feeling from the Throw My Bones rehearsal video….and the finished song didn’t change my mind.

    Apart from the music which is beautiful there are surprising insights. Ian Gillan is a fan of wearing Ugg boots and enjoys watching the stock market share prices surprisinly rising up or going down!!!
    As for Don Airey he looks he was under the weather maybe he had a cold.
    Thanks for posting this for us Mr Paice.

    I am surprised how wrapped up they all are – can’t they afford a shilling for the meter.
    I assumed that once you made it you got the nice room with the heater.

    Where they do this is it always cold? If you look at Don man it looks like he’s getting ready to go skiing.

    For all of you asking where this was filmed:

    This rehearsal took place at the “one2one Rehearsal Studio” located in Bottrop, Germany.


    The studio is owned by the company “TDA Rental GmbH”.
