Deep Purple III Reunion?

(RNRU) In a brand new, exclusive, extensive joint interview conducted by Rock N Roll Universe with legendary vocalist Glenn Hughes and LIZARDS bassist Randy Pratt, the two discuss the brand new LIZARDS CD, his days in DEEP PURPLE, his brand new album 'Music For The Divine' and the possibilities not only of working with BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi, but of a reunion of the classic Mark III lineup of DEEP PURPLE.

RNRU : There are a lot of people who would be very interested in seeing a Mark III reunion of Deep Purple, with you, David Coverdale and Ritchie Blackmore reforming with Jon Lord and Ian Paice�.?

GH : I think David and I would do that. Speaking on behalf of David, and David and I have already spoken about this at Christmas. I think, at some point, you might see some kind of rumblings of this in the press. While Gillan, Glover and Paice are still out there, I don't know if it's ever going to happen. I think if that ever comes to a head, where Deep Purple kind of stops touring with the two Ians and Roger, who are very nice people by the way, it might happen. I wouldn't want to step on anybody's toes and do something that's inappropriate. But I think that if you got Ritchie Blackmore, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Jon Lord and Ian Paice together, it probably would be a very big tour. I think it would be remarkable. David and I have already discussed how great it would be for he and I to sing together. But it would only be in Deep Purple. And, it would only be with Ritchie Blackmore ..
