A lot of Ian Paice fans will know this, but for those that don't........

You know Pacy doesn't over play. Ever wondered why he "Solos" over the vocals on the song BURN?

While DP were running through the song they couldn't find a drum line that scammed well enough.
It was take 5 or 6, trying to find the best drumming & either for a laugh or through frustration Ian Paice started playing a solo......
The rest of the band looked at him & said "That's it."

So it was a (well played) lucky accident......

Sorry if this was all ready mentioned, but does anyone else remember the PBS show "Rock School?" They had different professional musicians showing how to play their instruments and other related information & Ian Paice was the drummer on the show. I remember learning how to tune my drums from him!

As far as I know it was not mentioned before, thanks for bringing it up. I learned most of the rudiments (single, double, paradiddle) from him - Mr.Paice.

I saw Ian with Deep Purple in Atlanta in the 70's. Ian was working so hard that he had a window unit air conditioner behind him blowing cold air directly on him.

I love the pop of his snare drum in the live video from the NEC!!

so the Speed King vid - what cymbals you think he was using? Its 1970.... so GB's? they don't look the right sizes. I'm guessing 602's, as to my knowledge he was always a Paiste guy.

Good question!

I have been searching Paice's cymbals subject for some time to clarify concerns.

It is confirmed that Ian is a full-blown Paiste player and is an Paiste Official Artist Since April 1971. As per quite few drumming articles and cymbal reviews, during 1960 to 1971 he played Giant Beats until the 2002's emerged and switched to them until the present.

Regarding the Speed King video, looking at the top flat of the cymbal bells...they give the impression of 602's line set.

The 602's are since 1959 and Giant Beats since 1960...so just 1 year difference between cymbals!

Default Ian Paice--not enough said.....

I started playing guitar when my sister brought home a little 45 of deep purple playing 'Hard Road' from the late 60's. I heard it and went, wow, what the heck? i want to play guitar. Since I started learning drums I went and listened to some old DP stuff and went, WOW, what the heck? I want to play drums.....

Ian Paice is absolutely incredible. And after starting to learn 'Bloodsucker' from Deep Purple in Rock, I realize now why everyone says to practice rudiments because to keep that groove I can see that Paice is a very technical rudimentary drummer.

I saw the thread comparing Bonham and Paice, and they are like the alternate universe mirror of each other--Paice the very technical, linear, rudimentary drummer, Bonham the very improvisational, non-linear, esoteric type drummer, yet each could easily slide into the others style, I think, with ease.

I think paice would have been one of the few drummers who could have filled Bonhams shoes in Zepplin, and Bonham one of few that could have filled the role in DP. Both so alike yet so different. ...so that is my rant about Ian Paice, who I consider one-half (Bonham being the other half) of the drummer that defined hard rock.

Ian Paice on the snare drum is like like John Bonham on the bass drum. He is easily one of my favorite drummers of ALL TIME!

In his own words " I'm a swing drummer that plays rock."
I won't argue with that.

I am glad to see other drummers who share my love of Ian Paice. It was 35 years ago when I first heard the Machine Head album and as a "guitar freak" teenager, I actually paid more attention to the drums than the guitar and got hooked on Ian Paice. To this day, I enjoy hearing his playing more than anybody else's. Perfect blend of technique and groove/swing.

A huge influence on me.. His speed, precision, but most of all inventiveness, is all the more inspiring hearing it 40 years later and realising it is still relevant, still brilliant, and still perfect for the music.

Like Taye-Dyed, I have the Ian Paice signature snare drum..

I'm not an aficionado of everyone that has great snare work, but my ears perk up when I hear it...
What grabbed me with Ian is his snare work. My Deep Purple catalog is deep so I've been hearing his playing for maybe 40 years? Has it been that long?

Clearly a fantastic player...

I saw Purple in the 70s. New haven Civic Center as I recall.

The silver sparkle 5 pc. I was amazed at how fluid he was. He made everything look totally effortless. I forget the warm up band that night, but I remember thinking THERE is the difference between a good drummer and a great drummer.

Absolutely love Deep Purple and Ian Paice. Have been listening to them my whole life as my dad is a huge fan, so I had no choice (not a bad thing at all).

A couple weeks ago I watched DP with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra from 1969. I was thoroughly impressed with not only the performance and how well it was, but also that Ian was reading charts right along with the rest of the musicians. Thoroughly impressed indeed!

Yeah. I mean, imagine how much better he'd be if he couldn't read?

Here's one to have you burning your albums. Paice actually having the gall to advocate the rudiments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDk8-FDhFgk

"If you want to get involved with the more technical side of drumming, you must learn the rudiments"? "Must"?? What, encouraging people to actually learn to play? Won't they all sound the same? The friggen' cheek!!

I am sure I heard Ian say in an interview that he didn't have sheet music charts, just some key points he had made for himself along the lines of "thump thump here" stop for 16 bars, "bang bang etc" and yet he didn't miss a beat.
Somehow without any serious musical training, he managed to play some of the best drumming in rock as well as really memorable and musical solos.
The "made in Japan" era and videos from those shows, demonstrate why Ian Paice deserves a place in the rock drumming hall of fame.

I love his playing. Fantastic player. I never understood why he did not get the recognition Bonham or Moon or Appice got. To me he is by far the best drummer that came out of the late 60's / early 70's.

I am not a fan of DP Mk II, but love Mk III and IV, and of course Whitesnake and Gary Moore. Although maybe a bit more straigh-forward his playing with Whitesnake and Moore is extremely tasteful and groovy. He and bassist Neil Murray were one of rock's greatest rhythm section ever.

In two words, I would describe his playing as tasteful and exciting.

Funny this thread should come up. I have been listening to a lot of Deep Purple lately, just going through a phase, I guess. I appreciate Paice more every time I listen to him. He was so solid, made the music feel good, grooved and seemed to play effortlessly.

I hear you.

I can only guess it's because, unlike Moon and Bonham, he's still with us......he never went out in a well publicised "blaze of glory." And unlike Carmine, he hasn't spent a lifetime making sure others are well versed in his level of influence......i.e. talking up his own book. :-)

Fabulous drummer. Fabulous band.

Ran across this on Facebook last week.
Drums only Highway Star.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S__-8YQ9oow

Great stuff, and I like how it speeds up a touch, or lays back in spots. The snare isn't "perfect" at the beginning, and I like that! Leave it HUMAN sounding!!
No two tracks were identical either.

Carmine talks and promotes himself, but he isn't lying about his accomplishments, or his influence on other drummers like Bonham. Bonham was green, and a "newbie" at one point too, despite having the talent he did.

Definitely one of the better players in that style of music, from that time period.

Good hands, and great swing to his playing.
