    • Oh, you’re too kind! Deep Purple are my all-time favorite band, so when Pod Of Thunder mentioned your podcast, I couldn’t believe my luck. Happily listening through the episodes from the start. Love the show, keep doing what you’re doing. (One of the things I miss most from my younger years was sitting around & listening to full albums w/ friends. Ian Paice is the reason I started playing drums.) I wish I had some kind of cool or creative shoutout, but the best I can offer is keep up the amazing work! Best wishes from Pennsylvania,
    • Wilhelm
    • (PS had an afterthought- my old guitarist Austin would probably get a good laugh out of me discovering your podcast, because I never shut up about Purple back when we were bandmates. Anyway, take care!)
    • Oh and fun aside: my old drum teacher played w/ Yngwie Malmsteen for a few years, and Yngwie’s Blackmore worship is well-documented, so I’ll email John & see what ridiculous stories he remembers. Might be some relevant ones, who knows?
