    Default WhoCares (Ian Gillian, Tony Iommi & Friends)

    Oct. 15, 2010
    WHOCARES Supergroup Project Joined By More Big Names

    Blabbermouth.com

    Former METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted and Mikko "Linde" Lindström, the guitarist for the Finnish "love metal" band HIM, have added their parts to the track "Out Of My Mind" from the all-star charity project WHOCARES — featuring BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi and DEEP PURPLE singer Ian Gillan alongside keyboardist Jon Lord (DEEP PURPLE, WHITESNAKE) and drummer Nicko McBrain (IRON MAIDEN).

    In 1989 Iommi and 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 Leninakan earthquake that struck Armenia in 1988.

    In October of last year, Tony and Ian traveled 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, with its only location not having been rebuilt 20 years after the earthquake had struck. While in the country, they were also awarded the Orders Of Honor — which were delivered to them by Prime Minister of Armenia Tigran Sargsyan — for the Armenia Grateful To Rock program. The objective of the program, was to express gratitude to those musicians who 20 years ago participated in the Rock Aid Armenia.

    Earlier this month, Tony and Ian headed back into the studio, joined by Lord and McBrain to record "Out Of My Mind" to raise money to rebuild the Armenian music school. The details of the song's release will be made available soon.

    Hamburg based earMUSIC, the international pop rock label of entertainment Group Edel, is proud to announce the release of the debut CD single by WhoCares on May 6th 2011. ll rock fans surfing the internet are already aware of the many rumours and semi-official news about this music project -one that simply seemed "too exciting to be true".

    What hides behind this new band name is in fact the renewed musical union between legendary Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan, with none other than Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi: the undisputed master of heavy guitar riffs.

    The duo has recorded two brand new songs with the intent to support the rebuilding of a music school in Gyumri, Armenia. Both Gillan and Iommi have spent a lot of time in Armenia, fallen in love with the country and the people and have dedicated a lot of work to a nation still shocked after the earthquake that struck Armenia on December 7, 1988 at 11:41am.

    The collaboration of Gillan and Iommi, who have worked together before on the Sabbath album "Born Again", is in itself an incredible news for all rock and metal fans and will be the best of surprises to get to know who is completing the band:
    None other than Jon Lord on keyboard ("Mr. Hammond", partner with Gillan on all the Deep Purple classics), Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain, legendary bass player Jason Newsted and guitar player Linde Lindström are also featured on the two new songs.

    There is no doubt that this is the biggest ever super-band to release new material in 2011. WhoCares will release the 2 new songs on digital download and limited edition CD single on May 6th 2011: "Out of My Mind" (and epic hard rock classic, destined to remain in time as a hard rock milestone) and "Holy Water". The CD single will also contain the video clip of "Out Of My Mind" and a 40-minute documentary that shows Gillan's and Iommi's involvement with the Armenia cause over the years.

    Ian Gillan said: "The idea came as Tony and I flew back from Yerevan together after being inspired by the enthusiasm of everyone there to get this thing done. It was brilliant working with Tony again after all these years; he makes life easy for a singer. The other guys need no introduction do they…"

    Tony Iommi added: ""Some twenty years ago when the call came, I thought, well at least I've helped, but it was going to Armenia and seeing the actual devastation caused by the earthquake that really made me realise that funds were still needed. Despite all the money that was raised last time, here was a music school doing their best, forgotten, in basic tin sheds. After the warmth and honour bestowed upon us during our visit, we just had to help make a difference and get the school re-built. And what better way than to hook up with some of rock's greatest players and my old mate Ian, both an honour and a pleasure. "

    I really like the song, it truly sounds like mixing Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.

    Good stuff, I would buy an album by them.

    Works well enough for me. Dig Iommi when he settles into that tone.

    Hell, I was also likin' Newstead. Fancy that - yet another bassist who don't sound half bad when you can, y'know, hear what he's doin'...

    Good tune I too like it when these older guys get together and do what they always did best - make rock and roll music! Iommi sounds great here - his solo style is all his own...
