Black Sabbath's Iommi and Deep Purple's Gillan Releasing Album

(Gibson) Last year, rock heavyweights Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) teamed up to form WhoCares and release a pair of songs to raise funds to rebuild a music school in Armenia. Now, the guitarist and singer have set a release date June 22 for an entire WhoCares album, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

The album will feature the two WhoCares tracks (which also feature Jason Newsted, Nicko McBrain, Linde Lindstrom and Jon Lord), along with rareities from Iommi and Gillan's vaults. Other songs include a Deep Purple studio jam, an unreleased song from Gillan's band Repo Depo, two unreleased songs from Iommi and Glenn Hughes, b-sides and radio performances.

"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. "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." more on this story
