In Italy –
Keyboardist Corrado Solarino, who was absolutely in scintillating form during the Ian Paice Dates is doing a series of Radio Interviews and Promtions for the New Album tHis is the tHing#1…….
From Radio Atlanta Milan he was Quoted –



“We don’t rehearse, because we don’t need it, we Tour a lot, we are very Stage Fit…too good to rehearse” (laughs). Since I am in the Band we have Never Rehearsed in 3 Years, in fact we don’t even use a Set List, so you have to be on your Toes”

And when asked about the Track Dancing in a Cage and what it is about from the New Album he answered,



” The Story of that Song is in the Lyrics, It’s all true unfortunatly (Laughs),
In Poland I ended up in the wrong kind of Club that had Cages after the Show in Katowice, and then In Moscow Russia, where I infamously threw my Credit Card over the Bar ….. Robby our Vocalist, then had some trouble on the Overnight Train to Samara Russia, prompting the Police to Board at a Stop and forced him to go to bed! We all had way to much to Drink….I think he tried to bribe them with 25 cents in which he thought was a lot more (it was Russian Rubles)…”

Thanks to Paola Ratclif and Mauro from Atlanta Radio Milano
