Frontman Ian Gillan told us that the band's current lineup is one of the best, because the members all trust each other: ["Well, it's like any group of people, really. I think you function much better when you trust people and when you've got a sort of relationship where you can develop ideas within a framework. When we go to the studio now it's just pure joy."] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . just pure joy)
