I don't beleive it. I was said Ian's last name comes from Welsh or even from baltic languages.
Gaelic and Welsh are both Insular Celtic languages. They're as close to each other as purebred Russian and purebred Ukrainian.
Infinite came in the mail today ... Just finishing up side B (got the Vinyl) .. I am enjoying it. So far, pretty on par with Now What!? quality wise
So far I have heard Time For Bedlam, Birds of Prey, The Surprising, and Johnny's Band.
Love Johnny's Band for how honest and straight forward the lyrics are and how the guitar lick sounds like a Edgar Winter rip off (no wonder he is opening for Purple).
The other three sound more progressive and less driving than I have heard Purple before. Slower and mystical. (Mind you this is only on a first listen. My opinion might change after seeing the material played live). I am a fan of both progressive and harder driving rock as well so even though it sounds like a different Purple than I have known, I am enjoying it.
I pretty much agree with this, the songs you listed .. especially The Surprising are really good ... the rest are quite solid. I think I like Now What better, but this is still really good. Look forward to seeing them this summer, should be a good show with the support acts
This is a really interesting, in depth, one hour long interview with Ritchie Blackmore. I think it is around the Battle Rages On era, but it covers most of Ritchie's work. Well worth a viewing!
Thanks for the find!
See they are releasing Johnny's Band as a CD single, great track, but I think I'll give this a miss, as the accompanying tracks are a jam and some live songs. An non-album track, as they did with the Time for Bedlam single would got me interested and purchasing a copy. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Johnnys-Band-Deep-Purple/dp/B073VXY8WF/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1500541000&sr=1-1
