Paicey in Gillan audition


I just read an article on Bernie Torme's site where he was discussing his time with the band [sign in to see URL] mentions that Ian Paice tried out for the band before the band settled on Mick Underwood!I find this astonishing has anyone else heard of this who can shed any light on the matter?

I find that hard to believe too! Underwood over Paice!!

There definitely was some contact between Paice and the Gillan band though. He'd sounded out Colin Towns about forming a band (with Geoff Whitehorn) prior to joining Whitesnake.

Do you have a link to the Torme article?

I asked Paicey at the Birmingham drum clinic in July 2003 and he said it was just an informal get-together/jam and a blast thru a few old songs; he didnt think it was anything more, tho Bernie may have!!
