Introduction to the drum lesson: Ian Paice Smoke on the Water
One of the most famous drummers in rock history, Ian Paice has been a main element in the sound of Deep Purple, the English band who invented hard rock.
Born in Nottingham (UK), Ian Paice was a precocious talent and in 1967, at only 19, he was a founding member of Deep Purple.
He's been the only drummer in the band history, though all the changes in Deep Purple's line-up.
The trascription of Smoke on the water in the drum sheet, one of the most famous Deep Purple's songs, taken from the 1972 album "Machine head", is a good example
of Ian Paice's style and techniques. Another version of Smoke on the water was recorded on the album "Made in Japan", a live album that contained
a long Ian Paice's drum solo, an historical performance that still is a reference for every rock drummer.
