Around the site this week

New on DTB over the past few days: Deep Purple current tour date list cancellation and corrections (, a review of the Purple show in Bonn the other night, with a set-list spoiler (three tracks off the new album) ( Roger didn’t make the show, so Nick Fyffe covered for him. Speculation about an operation was settled by Ian Gillan, who told everyone Roger was getting a brain-transplant! He was back for the following concert. There’s also a review of Blackmore’s Night on tour here a couple of weeks back ( Also details of a mad special edition of the new album, complete with badges, a tote bag and an embroidered framed piece of cover art (as well as the regular CD and DVD) AND a possible 4CD Rainbow history… There aredetails of an Ian Paice session from last year on the site which we’d missed. And don’t forget news of the upcoming Jon Lord photo biography.

Roberto Souza spotted the mention of the tribute to Jon and others at the Whitesnake shows on the site and kindly sent us this photograph which captures the moment.

    God bless them, brilliant musicians – brilliant blokes. I met Cozy in 1989 outside Newcastle city hall, he was playing with Black Sabbath at the time, I feel blessed that I met him, it will stay with me forever.

      I think we met Cozy for the first time properly outside a PAL concert and had a chat. He was in the UK on the quiet and asked us not to mention it as it would affect his tax status! Though he had signed some bits for us on the previous Rainbow tour.
