Default Re: Ian Paice

Glad I read this thread. It's prompted a three day Paice bender. Haven't listened to anything but Purple albums since Thurs. It's been good to revisit them and I've made myself focus purely on the drumming (not easy with two masters like Blackmore and Lord to ignore!!!). Insane,,,,the man has immeasurable talent and is a joy to listen to. No point getting into the a/b thing with drummers. Bonham was truely great, Paice had a completely different thing going on and it was great, Palmer was different again....and great....Appice was...well, I could go on forever....but it's pretty much why we refer to all of these guys as 'THE GREATS' of rock drumming.
