Direct quote Ian Paice in February, 2007: “When I get the chance to play with other musicians and I don’t know them, I take a chance. If they’re good, it makes my job very easy. If they’re not so good, it makes my job very difficult. With Demon’s Eye, it’s incredibly easy. These guys are really fantastic! They know exactly what they do!”
