Ian Paice, Deep Purple Signed and Framed Drum Head
Take home this framed drum head, signed by Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice.
It was while playing in Hamburg, Germany that respected session guitarist Ritchie Blackmore took note of Ian Paice and arranged the drummer to audition for his group, Roundabout, in early 1968. Paice got the gig and Roundabout soon transformed into Deep Purple. Throughout his tenure with Deep Purple, Paice indulged steadily in session work, playing on albums by such artists as the Velvet Underground, Eddie Hardin, Pete York, Elf, and Bobby Harrison, among others.
1989 saw Paice drum on several songs recorded by ex-Beatle George Harrison for the soundtrack to the movie Lethal Weapon II, before returning back to Deep Purple. Purple continued on throughout the '90s, with such further releases as 1990's Slaves and Masters, 1993's The Battle Rages On, 1996's Purpendicular, and 1998's Abandon, despite continued lineup juggling. In 1999, Paice had the opportunity to play alongside another ex-Beatle, Paul McCartney, on the mostly covers outing, Run Devil Run, as well as the live home video/DVD, Live at the Cavern Club. Paice has also recorded a few instructional videos for fellow drummers over the years, including an episode of the '80s TV program Rock School, and in 2002, the DVD 'Not for the Pros'.

Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
Our life-changing support for young people before, during and after cancer means they get the specialised care they need, in a welcoming environment. We work with individuals to help them live as normal a life as possible, building their self-esteem and connecting with others living through the same experience.
Every young person with cancer should have access to this kind of care. Right now, we need more specialised nurses across the UK to make sure they do.
Teenage Cancer Trust relies entirely on voluntary donations to protect and grow our vital services for young people. Help every young person with cancer get the specialised support they desperately need.
