WHO CARES: Another SUPERGROUP is coming!
 
Who Cares: that's the name of a new SUPERGROUP: featuring Ian Gillan, Tony Iommi, Nico McBrain and Jon Lord. They are going to the studio next week to record a song for the benefit of a music school in Armenia.

Sensational. I hope the will record a whole album and we have another great band. Wow :thumbsup:

Hi Willem,
Isn't it strange that they just record a single and not a whole album for this project :confused: Speaking about supergroups: If Gillan and Lordy went to the studio with the gents Blackmore, Glover and Paice, yes, then it would be a supergroup. Not a new one, but an old LOVED one :thumbsup: sigh, those were the days...
Dag, Yvonne

Hi Yvonne,
It COULD be a more long-term project because: DP seem to have no plans for an album in 2011 (touring unknown). Black Sabbath (aka Heaven and Hell) is unfortunately over and Iron Maiden: there are rumours that the latest album will be the last album. And our dear friend mr. Jon: maybe he is looking for a new adventure. BCC turned out to be GREAT: I hope for a new adventure with great old heros! Come on: WHO CARES: Let's rock: and maybe after that in 2012 a creative DP again in studio and on tour :)

well for the begining of 2011 Mister Gillan have already a tour :

Ian Gillan is joining a full Rock Meets Classic tour (mostly of Germany) in January 2011, along with Lou Gramm (FOREIGNER), Steve Lee (GOTTHARD) and Dan McCafferty (NAZARETH). They will each have spotlight slots, with a backing band and the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra from Prague. This reprises a number of similar one-off slots he's done for this project in recent years.

willem Sep-30-2010 10:45 AM

Interesting project. Maybe I go to one of these shows.
Oh yeah....On Ian Gillan's website there is a note about WHO CARES: A band for ad hoc recordings (not one recording but recordingS) and (here it comes) POSSIBLE PERFORMANCES! Come on, record that album and make a tour, please :)

New recording from Deep Purple is "planned" for some months... At the end of 2009 IG announced on December shows that they are going to start with working on follow up of Rapture Of The Deep in February (2010) - but it´s unknown if there ever started to work on it! Fans asking the band during the summer got the answer that they are going to record new album "very soon". Roger Glover made an interview for Czech press and he said that 2011 should be a year for new album - but it was unclear what he meant - releasing or recording. I´ll have a chance to ask them in following weeks...

There are also new dates for 2011 for shows in Russia. But don´t forget - Bananas and Rapture was done in gaps between touring - that´s very similar to this situation.

SUPERGROUP: NO
WHO CARES: NOT ME
This group really doesn't do much for me. Iommi and Gillan have done their thing and I really don't see anything exciting or new coming out of this.

lioness Oct-09-2010 2:53 PM

Here are some pix from the recording session. Looks like the boys had fun. Just hope one Mr. Gillan won't perform with THAT hat during the tour in Germany, I might have a fit... :D

willem Oct-10-2010 3:11 AM

The bass player will be Jason Newstad! Not bad at all. What a interesting combination :thumbsup:

Ken Oct-14-2010 7:33 PM

how about Gary Moore, Don Airey, Geezer Butler, Ian Paice :p

chrisloeb Oct-16-2010 9:32 AM

This sounds more like something like the ROCK AID ARMENIA project to me. Mind you, that wasn't a band, was it! A supergroup should be a band, make at least one album and tour.
Purple has been dead for me since Jon Lord left - nothing against the brilliant Don Airey, but they should have called it quits then.
So I'll second Frank. I don't care ;)

lioness Oct-17-2010 4:06 AM

Hey Chris, seen this interview with Lordy?

willem Mar-08-2011 1:39 PM

According to a reliable source ;) : Who Cares, the so called supergroup with Ian Gillan, Tony Iommi and Jon Lord will officially come March 2011 with some songs out. Not only one song but more recordings, that's nice. The format (LP, CD, DVD or DOWNLOAD is not known yet). Let's hope for a CD with a Making Of DVD :thumbsup:

Sigurd Mar-09-2011 4:10 AM

:D dear willem, i think the combination of the musicians Iommi, Lord and Gillan is interesting. Mr. Iommi always garanties great guitarwork, now might be exciting how he interacts with Jon Lord.
Some years ago there was a benefit for armenia too with Gillan and Iommi.
Also Blackmore, Gilmour and Brian May. You can find a youtube video.
Just type in "smoke on the water" and "Brian May".
:bouncer:

willem Mar-09-2011 1:09 PM

Thanx Sigurd for the tip about the videos. It would be very special as we will have the change to see this band on tour. WHO CARES (strange name for a band, but who cares). As long as the music is GREAT :thumbsup:

Boyz ;)
Honestly, I wonder where you get those ideas from that this is a new "super band". It was clearly stated in the press that this is another PROJECT for Rock Aid Armenia. Neither of the musicians involved ever said they are going to form a new band. Or have they been talking to you???

"WHO CARES (strange name for a band" - funny, couple of days ago I got a mail from Simon Robinson from dp.net with exactly the same wording... ahem.

I'm kinda fed up with this kind of rumours... :rolleyes: And I fully agree to what Christian that about this "band" before!

willem Mar-09-2011 2:41 PM

Let's wait till we hear the songs ;)

WOW. I heard a soundclip of OUT OF MY MIND: Great Sabbath sound with superb Ian Gillan on vocals. This ROCKS :thumbsup: Coming out in May on Vinyl single )very limited' CD with bonus DVD and of course Download. WHO CARES, I do :)

wolfysmith Apr-08-2011 2:45 PM

here's the video promo
YouTube - WhoCares: Ian Gillan, Tony Iommi & Friends.

willem Apr-17-2011 1:11 PM

The single Out of my mind (which have to come out in in few weeks) is already nr. 2 in the Amazon single charts. Great music by Gillan Iommi, Lord and friends :thumbsup:

Sigurd Apr-17-2011 3:59 PM

:D :D Hi Mate, agree with you, it sounds great.
"The big wheel keeps on turning!"
regards
Sigurd

lioness Aug-01-2011 4:59 AM

Hoj Willem, Your dream might come true. Gillan recently said that he will have time off from Purple in April 2012 and that he might do an album for the WHO CARES project.
Have a look at this interview on "rockpages" Greece:

www.rockpages.gr/detailspage.aspx?id=5707&type=1&lang=EN

Keith Thompson Aug-01-2011 8:46 AM

Interesting discussion and a great cause. All power to those who want to make a difference through music. Let's hope it is a longer lasting thing and not a "one off." I don't mean that from a musical perspective but mainly from a humanitarian one. If it leads to an album great, but I am not sure that will happen. Too many commitments.

willem Aug-02-2011 1:48 PM

Hi Lioness and Keith,
Tonight I read it on the Highway Star that WHO CARES might get a follow up in april 2012. Ian and Tony have booked a week studio time and they see what will come out of that. Could be interesting :)

wolfysmith Aug-11-2012 1:24 AM

There is a review of the album in the new edition of Classic Rock (Sept 2012) - "a cornucopia of delights"

the Born Again song Trashed is the Gillan's Inn version.

the "unreleased" tracks with Glenn were actually issued in 2005 - just not on the original album.

Let It Down Easy
was the Japanese bonus track and one of my favourites of the whole superb album. I got it played at a rock night a couple of months ago and it went down a storm with hardly anyone knowing who it was.

Slip Away was given away with Rolling Stones Magazine
