Well Wipy, Ian Gillan has stopped to sing with Black Sabbath because
he realised that Hard Rock and Heavy Metal were two different things.
Deep Purple will stay forever a name that we'll remember......like
Led Zeppelin! Find a "metal drummer" that can make Bonham's solo on
the "early years" DVD. Hard rock is a thing and metal another one.
The fact is that Metal comes from Hard Rock........and Rock from the
Blues. No big Music names suck, man...Because they all brought or
still bring something different to listen to. I saw DP in 1985 with
Girlschool opening. Let me tell you that "it was not the same". Deep
Purple was awesome and I was a Girlschool fan. Ian Gillan knows how
to stand on a stage, but it was fun to see that Ian Paice even didn't
look at Blackmore :) Metal is good, but "Kings" are "Kings".
Pretending that DP sucks and bringing Thor on the topic is deeply
weird. "Thor" has maybe given good shows, but he looks like crap. His
look is probably inspired from "Bam Bam" (Peeble's friend) in the
We're in 2004, we have to live with our time. Imagine Lips wearing
like on SoS playing in bars now...Everybody change, and DP changed
too. Some likes, some dislikes.
