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!
Paice reading charts? he has just slipped a notch in my esteem.
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.Paice reading charts? he has just slipped a notch in my esteem.
I never understood why he did not get the recognition Bonham or Moon or Appice got..
Ran across this on Facebook last week.
Drums only Highway Star.
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.
