Snow on the water. Well, you've got to do something to keep your, errm, pole position.  :mrgreen:

They look like Free Folk/Wildlings extras from Game of Thrones, but it is not photoshopped, it's actually a recent promo shot at the Baltic Sea in winter. DP have certainly had worse promo shots in their not very image-conscious past!  :-X

Are they calling it quits after this one...?

They're deliberating about it and say "never say never", but it seems so. Ian Paice suffered a light stroke recently, Glover has had knee operations and a small child he'd like to be there for, Morse has never been a great friend of touring, he likes to be on his tractor at his Florida farm, Gillan doesn't go out on tour anymore - he has seen everything several times over, he says - and recuperates on a bed made for him behind the drum kit when he is not singing. The only fanatic tour junkie is Don Airey, he explores every city they play and has his son with him as his stage tech.

41 years since I first saw them (Bolin; not seen Hughes since) and it was Perfect Strangers era when last seen... Last saw Morse with D Dregs, supporting Sea Level, and Airey in Rainbow (with Glover, of course, and that other fellow)... not seen Coverdale since the "original" Whitesnake went their separate ways either...

Luckily, you can't see the InContinental (V) joke I place on that other popular time eating website... :mrgreen:

Alice makes for an interesting opener. Ol' Vince Furnier made a comment that his next album would represent a reunion of sorts of the original Alice Cooper Band.  He even hinted at doing some shows with some of the guys. As much as I enjoy watching Nita Strauss wiggle about the stage I wouldn't mind seeing the Dunaway, Bruce and Smith up there.

Senior citizens in Nashville (= mild climate), having some fun together: rock'n'roll & reading glasses!  :)



That is Bob Ezrin's P Bass btw - it's a national treasure to him. And synth solos never go out of style. 8)

 I did........
An unforgettable show, my very first concert and first date - My Pops had to drive us from suburbia to The Colisuem (on the '62 World's Fair Site near the Space Needle) for the show, for me Alice without this version of the band just wasn't as cool and I lost interest. That was a very good evening  ;)
