ian gillan tony iommi

Deep Purple's Ian Gillan and Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi took everybody by surprise in 2011 by releasing a charity single: 'Out Of My Mind', renewing the collaboration that led the pair recording Black Sabbath's 'Born Again' album in 1984.

For the occasion, the two rock legends called a few friends, asking for some 'help'. None other than Jason Newsted, Jon Lord and Nicko McBrain completed the supergroup.

The single was a joyful and inspired moment. The spark to bring Iommi and Gillan in a studio, together again was to finance the rebuilding of a music school in Armenia they had visited together on various occasions in past years.

Far from being a spectacular charity project, 'Who Cares' was a nice gesture, done with class, from two musicians with nothing to prove, willing to support music, where music is considered a luxury.

'Who Cares' will be released on June 22nd on earMUSIC.
