Over the years, Pete has organized lots of these special events, featuring a phalanx of great musicians. In 1970, Ian Paice, Miller and I took part in Pete’s first one (I still have the poster advertising “Super Drumming” at Bumper’s Club in London).
Several years after I’d been ousted from DP, I was invited to Pete’s wedding, and it was at that point that my rapprochement with Ian Paice and Jon Lord began. Miller also sang on Jon’s magnificent Pictured Within and toured with us extensively in 2000.
Zoot Money and Albie Donnelly I know only by reputation, but I look forward to meeting them.
Now, all these years later, when Pete asked if I’d be interested in joining the Rock and Blues Circus, I jumped at it. Such an honour. What better way to close a year of intense touring with DP? Bring it on!
