Tony Iommi And Ian Gillan To Release Album Together


Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath and Ian Gillan of Deep Purple will release a joint album, under the WhoCares moniker. The album, Out of My Mind/Holy Water, is due June 22 via Ear Music.

The LP features two WhoCares tracks as well as rarities from Iommi and Gillan's vaults. The line up is rounded out by Jason Newsted (bass), Nicko McBrain (drums), Linde Lindstrom (guitar) and Jon Lord (keys).

"As I said once in the song 'Razzle Dazzle' - 'It's a real fine line between an orgy of destruction and a wonderful time,'" Gillan said in a statement.

"The destruction of conformity in this case: Some of these pieces never really fit into their contemporary program and got sidelined or forgotten, and some of the album tracks never had much exposure. As the tracklisting for this album came together I noticed many of the titles had character similarities; a combination of freshness as they finally felt the sun on their backs and rebellion in a 'yeah told you so' kind of way. And that adds up to a wonderful time. And that adds up to more money for the music school we are building in Armenia."
