Arrow Don Airey serious ill?

On a international Deep Purple Fan Forum (runboard)I found an alarming post about Don Airey. Don had a show planned in Crocus Hall Moskow on 31-1-2018 (with his band and with Tony Carey and Doogie White). According to the news (translated from a Russian forum) Don was travelling from USA via London to Russia. During the flight from USA to London, Don sharply increased pneumonia. From London airport an ambulance took Don very ill to the hospital. According to what they heard from Donís son Mike his father was transferred to resusitation. According to the doctors his condition (31-1-2018) is consistently heavy.Very alarming news. So far I could not find any update on Donís situation. Anybody know how he is doing. Letís hope he get better soon!

Don has fully recovered and is touring.

Here is a song from his new album "One Of A Kind", release date May 25th.

Great to see Simon McBride on guitar. Saw him live last year with his own band and he was absolutely blisteringly good. More of a blues player but he can rock!

Good to know that Don is fully recovered. Simon is indeed a master on the guitar. Itís a pity that super bassplayer Laurence Cottle is not with the band this time.

Laurence Cottle had other obligations, so Dave Marks replaced him on this tour.

Btw, when Purple played in Hamburg last year, Don was invited by piano manufacturers Steinway & Sons. Interesting article.
