PAICE VISUAL

Not to mention Paul McCartney’s “Live At The Cavern” to be out soon, there’s a work going on on a DVD documenting Paice’s appearance on August 4th at the Abbey Road Studio 3, where the drummer jammed with his old friends Miller Anderson and Colin Hodgkinson and recorded two tracks with working titles “Paicesetter” and “Dustbins”. With emphasis on the drumming aspect, there will be never before footage material presented of Paice in his PURPLE and WHITESNAKE days.

And there will be more of Paice, as the PAICE, ASHTON, LORD DVD release confirmed. It contains two-hour live performance and the “Lifespan” documentary.

VROOM, ANYONE?

KING CRIMSON fans have the opportunity now to get hold of a double CD compilation from concerts in Mexico City and New York recorded in 1996. The Mexico show was previously available only for download, while the Broadway concert could be purchased by the Crimso Collectors’ Club members only. Robert Fripp called it “an opportunity for the wider world to get lucky and Crim-out. Revisiting this difficult band I find it interests me more today than it did at the time, and at the time I found it very interesting. And exasperating. And irritating. And impossible. And quintessentially Crimson. It was a messy conglomerate of exceptional, exuberant, experienced and energetic talent… and those are only words beginning with “E” this time.” And here it is:
