Deep Purple: Don Airey Video Interview From Germany
More-Metal.comconducted an interview withDeep Purplekeyboardist Don Aireyon July 23rd in Dresden, Germany. You can now watch the chat below. Deep Purplerecently completed its first tour of North America in four years. The pioneering rock band - featuring classic membersIan Gillan (lead vocals),Roger Glover(bass) andIan Paice(drums, percussion) - performed for the first time in the U.S. and Canada with a symphony orchestra in each city (except San Francisco). Fans were able to hear the band's trail-blazing iconic hits - including"Smoke On The Water", "Highway Star","Hush"and"Space Truckin'" - plus other favorites achieve a new dimension of sound with the added heft of a symphony orchestra. "This one isn't going to be orchestra-based so much as: It's the rock band Deep Purpleplaying, with strings and horns being added for some color textures,"Deep PurpleguitaristSteve Morserecently toldThe Star-Ledger. "We're not going to change the songs - I mean, there'll be a few little cameos and features - but the basic idea of the show is: We're doing what we do, and having more texture where it's appropriate."
