Expect the unexpected

The record company has posted a spotify playlist ostensibly curated by the members of the band themselves. And while some tracks are pretty obvious as to who contributed them (cough, Elvis, cough, Allman Brothers, cough, Buddy Rich, cough, Dave Brubeck, cough) otherс can raise an eyebrow.

    Are these the current band members favorite songs? I wonder who picked Three Little Birds by Bob Marley? I love that song.

    I wonder who picked Enya, Steve Morse perhaps as he touches on those Celtic / Irish melodies on his solo albums at times. So haunting the two Brennan sisters, Enya & Moya from Clannad. Focus with Sylvia & Jan Akkerman on guitar, a classic & Steve Morse again maybe Spot the tune & who picked it. A difficult one in regards to certain choices. Some of those jazz tunes Don Airey could be picking & also Ian Paice. What about a few of those older blues songs, Roger Glover anyone? The Beatles, well that is another conundrum indeed. I give up! Cheers.

    Gillan picked Marley, I think. He played table tennis with him, according to an interview.
