Metallica Sabbath Purple Maiden Supergrouping
"'Out Of My Mind' has now been fully recorded! Ian (Gillan, Deep Purple) and Tony are excited to announce that (former Metallica bassist) Jason Newsted has kindly played bass on the track and Mikko Lindström (H.I.M.) has also added some great guitar parts too. Next stop is getting the track mixed!"
According to Tony's site, in 1989 Tony Iommi and Ian Gillan were just a few names in a long list of talent involved in the recording of the Deep Purple track "Smoke on The Water." This song was re-recorded to raise money for those affected by the Leinakan earthquake that struck Armenia in 1988.
In October of last year both Tony and Ian travelled to Armenia to see how the funds raised had helped the local community. On their trip they visited a music school only to find it being run out of temporary accommodation, it was the only location not to have been rebuilt 20 years after the earthquake had struck.
