Deep Purple may keep being “overlooked” by the rock and roll hall of fame (they don’t deserve capital letters!) but Modern Drummer magazine have just named Ian Paice as their Hall of Fame / Rock Drummer of The Year 2015, as voted for by their readers. Good to see his name in there amongst younger players too. He joins some amazing drummers on the Hall of Fame list including two of his own heroes, Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa. You can read more on the Pearl drums.com site.
Thanks to Alan Greene for the news.
