The much delayed DVD of the Tony Ashton show at Abbey Road in 2000 is finally out on DVD. It has twenty two tracks, including all the PAL and Company Of Snakes performance, as well the three track Tony Ashton set, and Pete York / Eddie Hardin's set. A few of the opening acts are missing, but all the important stuff is here. It's been done as a combined DVD / CD package, so you also get the same set on a 2xCD, all in a thick digipak.

The first solo album K2 - THE TALES OF TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY. It's not easy to describe Airey’s musical style, but the best approximation is a mix of 70’s hard rock and symphonic progressive rock. The album is proof that Airey is one of the best keyboard players around. Don Airey quit the band Whitesnake to record the solo album K2 - Tales of Triumph and Tragedy. In it he plays with Gary Moore, Cozy Powell, Chris Thompson and Colin Blunstone.

The production then moved to Abbey Road Studios in London to record Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson (on vocals with Steve Balsamo and Kasia Laska) and Joe Bonamassa, Darin Vasilev and Steve Morse on guitars.

Legendary hard rockers Deep Purple have an enduring reputation as one of the most rounded bands currently playing. The 12 CD set Deep Purple Collectors Edition: The Bootleg Series 1984-2000 suffers from poor sound quality in places (in particular the first concert); however, it covers six concerts and two line-ups, mostly with reasonable quality and several from tours not otherwise documented (in particular the 1984 Mark II Reformed line-up), making it a must-have for truly dedicated fans of the reformed Purple. Taken from six different bootlegs, the album features virtually all the band's biggest hits numerous times.

"Knocking at Your Back Door: The Best of Deep Purple in the 80's" is a compilation album by the British hard rock band Deep Purple. It is a compilation of tracks from three albums, Perfect Strangers (1984), The House of Blue Light (1987), and the live album Nobody's Perfect (1988). This best-of of eighties Deep Purple marks the return of the Mark II line-up, and what a return! Although purists will disagree with compilations such as this, it has to be said that weeding out the dross makes this a stunning disc. From the sheer exuberance of the title track, to the monumental re-working of 'Hush,' there is very little to dislike here.

Empire released their fourth album "Chasing Shadows" in November, with White handling all vocal duties. Doogie White replaced Tony Martin as the frontman of the German band Empire. This is consistent hard rock with great melodies and hooks wrapped in a hard driving performance. Mr. White appears to have been born to sing these songs.

"Trading Souls" was the sophomore release from Empire, the super-group project from guitarist Rolf Munkes. Alongside the German axe slingers skills we have the formidable vocal talents of Tony Martin (ex Black Sabbath), the keyboard wizardry of Don Airey (Deep Purple / ex Rainbow), whilst bass legend Neil Murray (ex Whitesnake) forms a tight rhythmic unit with drummer Gerald Kloos (Winterlong / Condition Red). There’s even a special guest in drummer Anders Johansson (Hammerfall / ex Yngwie Malmsteen) who plays on two tracks. Originally released in 2003, "Trading Souls" saw Empire return after their 2001 debut "Hypnotica" with an album full of killer songs in a classic melodic hard rock setting. These 10 tracks perfectly showcase the combined decades of experience and talent from this super group. The end result is a hard rock record brimming with catchy anthems and great ensemble playing.
