Default 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...
