Deep Purple's Ian Paice Says Today's Generation Lacks Expertise

(Classic Rock) Deep Purple's Ian Paice says today's rock musicians would struggle to recreate the "edginess" of the band's celebrated 1972 live album, Made In Japan.

"I don't believe the expertise is there," the drummer claims. "When I look at the people I grew up playing alongside, the next generation of musicians just didn't have the same schooling or the broad picture of music that allowed them to let their ideas roam free.

"That's not a criticism, it's just the way music changed. When we recorded Made In Japan, everything was being formed. Nobody knew how to do it when we were starting out, nothing was actually written. Now it's all like a book." more on this story
