During a recent question-and-answer session with fans, DEEP PURPLE drummer Ian Paice was asked if there is any chance of the band ever performing the songs “You Fool No One”, “Stormbringer” and “Burn” live again.
“They’re not Ian Gillan songs; they’re David Coverdale songs. And we have enough Ian Gillan songs to play, and we can’t get all of those in. So trying to bring in some songs that have no connection to Ian at all would be difficult.”
Gillan recorded four albums with DEEP PURPLE — “Deep Purple In Rock” (1970), “Fireball” (1971), “Machine Head” (1972) and “Who Do We Think You Are” (1973) — before leaving the group and being replaced by Coverdale.
