ErnieBilko's current selection is:
The Surprising
by Deep Purple
#NauticalNuggets (for the video)

Saw these lads at Manchester Arena the other week.
My expectations were fairly low following a relatively lacklustre BBC performance.
Ian Gillan is 72, Roger glover was 72 yesterday, Ian Paice had a minor stroke last year, and Steve Morse has to wear strapping on his right wrist and hand because of constant arthritic pain.
However, amongst the many times that I've seen them, this was well up there with the best - powerful and dynamic, vocals spot on and drumming phenomenal.
They are not relying on greatest hits, They are still releasing new albums and performing new songs.
I reckon this splendid video represents there 50 year continuation through thick and thin...

Special mention for @ElizaJane who posted a live version of this song a while back, and also went to see them in London.
