Ian Paice home visit

Sign these and we'll let you off the washing up...

Carlos Fernandez, director of the Club Adictos a Deep Purple, the Spanish fanclub, and producer (with friends) of the long-running Hush club magazine, ran a special show (attended by over 700 people) featuring the Italian tribute band Hush (no relation!) in May last year for the anniversary of the club. Ian Paice came to play with the band, and visited Carlos at home, to look through his collection, admire his scrapbook wall and chat. Luckily for Carlos his mates were on hand to capture the visit for him. Ian made himself useful signing a load of the concert posters as you can see! It’s taken Carlos a year to send us the snaps, but then he’s probably only just come down to earth.

      Sandra, I will try and forward your message to IP. I did have his contact details a couple of years ago although it might take some finding and he was rubbish at answering so please don’t hold your breath!

    I’ve always wanted to meet Ian Paice in person, as my parents tell me that his sister Lyn used to babysit me, when we lived in Bicester, Oxon. and that my mum Mary Morris played football against Ian Paice, when he was in a band in Bicester. My mums team was called the Bicester fillies, would love to hear from Ian, and to see whether he remembers any of this, it would be great! I love Deep Purple, as I grew up a rock chick !

      We demand a team photograph of the Bicester Fillies at once Teresa! That’s bound to jog his memory. I can’t be sure IP bothers with sites like this one mind, he’s always been quite sniffy about DTB…!

    Son T.shirt de Carlos est sympathique et les photos posters sur le mur et les objets sont intéressantes.
