Cyprus Mail reports:
Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu has invited president Nicos Anastasiades to attend the Deep Purple concert in the north together, as part of the confidence building measures.
Now we are talking! Two hours of head banging together will do more to united Cyprus than the last 40 years of talking.
I can almost smell the archive dust and old film on this video … Deep Purple’s classic “Lazy”, live from their Machine Head tour in 1972. Yup, that’s before I was even born.
Finally I got my act together and processed all the pictures. Out of 250 frames I selected 125. Mostly those are of Ian Gillan with a microphone. Steve Morse with his guitar and Don Airey up at his keyboards are the next most covered. Basist Roger Glover and drummer Ian Paice were on the other side of the stage, so their pictures aren’t as spectacular as of others, but I’ve go them covered anyway.
I’d like to thank Slava who started the whole argument with the security stuff and found out that it was OK to bring in the photo camera and that only video cameras were banned. If it wasn’t for him, I would leave my camera in the car and none of this pictures would have seen the light of the Web.
Without further a do…

This is just a quick note to let all of you know that Deep Purple really rocked today! The concert was superb and I think everyone loved it there. Many thanks to all involved. It was worth every penny and more.
I made around 250 pictures today so it will take me some time to sort them out and select the good ones. I did a quick overview and it seem there were a lot of nice shots. I will post all the pictures most probably by the end of the tomorrow. Stay tuned.
On the personal losses: my voice is gone. Again. I hope it will return in a couple of days. And all my muscles hurt. That’s from too much jumping. Especially with Slava’s 12 year old son on my shoulders. :)
Awesome. The whole thing was awesome!
