Ian Paice
 
Ian Paice is one of my favorite drummer. His grooves and breaks are so...... perfect!
For example Speed King, Strange Kind Of Woman, Fireball, Highway Star, Burn and of course The Mule. That is something that not many people can play.
Paice is playing Pearl Masters maple series and those drums sound GREAT!
If you listen to the song 'Burn' you can hear that he's playing really fast when Coverdale starts singing: "The sky is....". Do you think he's playing single strokes or double strokes at this time in the song? (It starts at 0:45 - 1:00min.)

Share your thoughts on this great legendary rock drummer.

I think he plays singles but its hard to tell with him. He has such great technique, his doubles often sound tight enough to be singles.
Some of his fills are insanely fast but he plays them with such ease. Definitely the Buddy Rich of rock.

I think Ian is an amazing player, and seems to be often overlooked when people are discusssing classic drummers of the 60's and 70's. His work on the Machine Head album is so great, those solo fills on Highway Star in particular are classic. Maybe I'm a Leo is really unique, such a dirty groove. Great snare sound on that record

Re: Ian Paice
 
he's one of the biggest influences in hard rock drumming and i do feel he is underrated. made in japan is such a good record. i don't think anybody can play his live solo.

yer 'maybe i'm a leo' is such a cool song!

I started playing drums because of Ian Paice, he was my biggest influence I love his sound and the power that his grooves have. Hey, and we started at the same age - 15 :) So let's see who will become more famous :DDD
Oh, well, i think I lost already... he joined Deep Purple @ the age of 18 :/

Re: Ian Paice
 
Probably my third favorite rock drummer behind Bonham and Peart. And i agree that he doesn't get quite the credit that some of these others get. I saw him 20 years ago live, and he was amazing.

Re: Ian Paice
 
A true icon of rock drumming and a great influence on many a drummer { including myself }. The best thing about Ian Paice is that everything he does looks so easy and natural. Rock on Ian.

Wow! I was watching the newest Paice video here on drummerworld, and that one-hand roll is sick! How does he do that???

The same way Buddy Rich did it. It's a triplet between the snare and the kick, usually the kick is on the one. Paice has got some amazing chops, the fastest singles I've ever seen.

its not a triplet between snare and bass, its all one hand. It's not hard to master at all, all you need it a rim on your drum! Also to practice it on a pad, just put your fingers on your other hand together and up like a rim, and you'll know your doing it wrong if it hurts (or if you have high pain tolerance, you can feel the stick too much.). When your doing it right, you cant hear the rim at all ... here's a video someone posted a while back on it

You're right. I went back and looked at it again. It's the Johnny Rabb thing. I saw him in a nashville clinic not too long ago, but i was so far back i couldn't figure out how he was doing it. thanks for the video.

I listened to "Made in Japan" a few months back and holy crap! Their was this freakin' Dave Weckl like solo on their.His doubles were soooooooo fast.Truly amazing and probably one of the best drum solos I've ever heard.

My biggest influence, I wish I could make it look so easy. I'm not sure if the Deep Purple wagon would have made it anywhere without this engine.

Ian Paice, without doubt, is rock's most underrated drummer. The guy SMOKES! Listen to any of those old DP records, Paicey is the driving force! Rock And Roll, Baby!

My favorite drummer and the reason I drum. In addition to all the above, another must have is the Fireball 25th Anniversary Edition album. "Slow Train" is one of my favorite tracks on there.

Re: Ian Paice
 
Ian Paice is not only a good drummer he has the perfect name for drums. Paice he keeps the paice anyway its more of a inside thing. Also if anyone can help me with posting please message me.

Re: Ian Paice
 
Ian Paice. Awesome drummer. I love the cover of "Made In Japan" . Look at his kit. Ludwig 5 piece. 1 rack, 2 floors, big kick. and remember, this is before the double pedal was invented. Ian played a Speed King crazy fast.

tambian89 02-14-2006 06:14 AM

Re: Ian Paice
 
Paice is such a powerful drummer. He really has a good knowledge of the drums and of music theory as it pertains to hard rock. Paice seems very skilled in his style, which is why I enjoy listening to him play.

I just got their "Deep Purple Live in Concert 72/73" and "Live in California 74" DVDs. Although it's hard to choose, I prefer the first one even though the second one has better camera work and might be a more visually appealing concert as whole, the first is the Mark 2 line up, has a lot more solos/extended fills, and is worth the price for Fireball alone (I practically crapped myself when he started playing that). A must have for any DP/Paicey fan.

Thank you Bernhard, cool videos! ;-)

Re: Ian Paice
 
Great stuff Bernhard!!
Ian Paice has always been one my favorite drummers for many years. He has left me scratching my head more than once! If you listen to the song “Lazy” off the Machine Head Album you can hear him play that oh so sweet sing beat on the ride cymbal, and pay particular attention to the accents he put on the bass drum……… unbelievable.

Again thanks for video clips Bernhard.

I usually listen to everything, but when a classic rock band like Deep Purple comes on I'll shun it off, thinking "Eh.......smoke on the water.......corny", maybe because I'm younger and didn't grow up with bands like that, so I'll admit my ignorance for ignoring this guy and not knowing he played for more artists than Deep Purple.

Just checked out all his videos on here WOW this guy rips! Thanks Bernhard for shedding a new light on this drummer for me.

Some of Ian's best work is with Deep Purple. "Smoke.." is just one of the songs that got popular, and his work on that is just the tip of the iceberg. Check out DP's Fireball, Machine Head, and In Rock albums.


And thanks again Bernhard. It's always a joy to watch some of his older stuff. His fills were almost as good the guitar player's mullet. jk :)

Re: Ian Paice
 
Btw, what are the band he plays with, in these two videos? From which recording is these samples?

Ian Paice / Rock Icon
 
When Machine Head came out years ago, Ian Paice became one of my favorite rock Drummers. He is still tearing it up in his own special style at around 60 years old? What a great drummer. For you youngins out there - check out Space Truckin on Machine
Head and listen to an all time great drummer. You gotta love Ian. You've just read a Waterjet moment!

I have to admit, Ian Paice is one of the best.. a legend..

ellenvannin105 06-13-2006 01:53 AM

Re: Ian Paice
 
Ian is the man who made me actually take up the drums instead of just screwing about with them.I've been a fan since The Shades Of Deep Purple LP was released in 1968.Just listen to "Mandrake Root" from that CD,or the entire Book Of Taliesyn CD with its insane opener "Listen,Learn,Read On",or "Wring That Neck",and let's not forget the 3rd CD called "Deep Purple" with even more great playing from Ian.I wish the tenative drum-solo ending on "Emmeretta" was allowed to be longer;and that's just his early stuff.Of course his playing from the In Rock LP onward is simply the stuff of legend.This man may very well be my favourite drummer of all time...

Re: Ian Paice
 
What can be said about this guy!! LEGEND!
Up there with Bonham, Moon, Baker and Palmer!!

dry_water 06-17-2006 11:01 PM

Re: Ian Paice
 
One of those legends who makes something impossible seem so easy. Ian Paice is a truly amazing drummer. I agree with what everyone says about his super fast fills. They sound so smooth.. I love his drumming in the 1972 Copenhagen Concert. I have it on DVD. It's amazing.

Hats off to Mr. Paice...

JayDVee009 06-20-2006 10:10 PM

Re: Ian Paice
 
Hey all, I'm so glad there are so many out there who know that Ian Paice is a legend in his own time and was already legendary whilst playing that awesome Ludwig kit way back then. Man.... I reckon I'd be one of the happiest guys in the world if I could clone that kit straight out of 1972!!! I have to say I have been listening to Ian Paice since I was a young boy and I have never turned back since! I have many drum influences which include John Bonham, percussionists from Santana, Carl Palmer etc but Ian Paice has and always will be my biggest inspiration and heaviest influence and I'm proud of it.

My favourite drumming by Paice was when he was using that old classic Ludwig, how can you go past "In Rock", "Fireball", "Machine Head", "Made In Japan", "Who Do We Think We Are", "Burn" & Stormbringer etc etc.........

The Triple Disc version of "Made In Japan" which is titled "Live In Japan" is one of my personal favourites featuring 3 gigs they performed in Japan. I suggest for all you hardcore Ian Paice fans (I'm sure most of you have it anyway) to listen to the sick drumming on Disc 3's version of "Space Truckin'" which in my opinion is equally as good as the version chosen for the original "Space Truckin'" released on "Made In Japan".
This version was ommited because apparently Ian Gillan had a cold so his voice was a bit raspy but I think the singing on the Disc 3 version is sicker aswell. It was their last night in Japan and he sings his guts out aswell as everyone jamming their asses off!!!!!

And while you're at it, have another listen to the fills in "Highball Shooter" from the "Stormbringer" album........cool eh!! What a SnareMaster!

Paice is the man!!!
