DEEP PURPLE drummer Ian Paice was in Italy on September 21 to record two new songs for MOONSTONE, the project of Italian guitarist Matteo Filippini. Check out a photo at TheHighwayStar.com. The tracks recorded during the session, "One Dollar Baby" and "Halfway to Heaven", will be included on MOONSTONE's second album. The project's first CD, "Time to Take a Stand", which also features Ian Paice, will be released in the early 2006.
Described as "genuine British-oriented '70s classic rock," not a million miles removed from the likes of FREE, JIMI HENDRIX and DEEP PURPLE, MOONSTONE's debut album features guest appearances by an all-star cast of musicians, including Paice, Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH), Graham Bonnet (RAINBOW, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, ALCATRAZZ, IMPELLITTERI, BLACKTHORNE), Eric Bloom (BLUE ÖYSTER CULT), John Lawton (ex-URIAH HEEP), and Paul Shortino (ROUGH CUTT, QUIET RIOT, HEAVEN & EARTH).
