Speaking to Rock Candy Magazine for their latest cover article, Deep Purple stalwarts Ian Gillan and Ian Paice have revealed what fuels their enduring passion for Rock music – and it has nothing to do with money! It’s their abiding love for being in Deep Purple, not the pots of cash, that has ensured the legendary Rock band has survived for more than 50 years – and it also means that Purple are still making exciting and creative music with new album 'Whoosh!’. The coronavirus pandemic put paid to the band’s plans to undertake a major tour this year, but there’s no doubt that Purple’s loyal fans will turn out in droves to see them when they hit the road in earnest in 2021, especially given that the band acknowledge that they can’t simply go on forever.
