Biography

Don Airey has contributed to some of the most important rock albums of all time, including Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Blizzard Of Ozz’ and ‘Diary Of A Madman’, ‘Down To Earth’ by Rainbow, Whitesnake’s ‘1987’ – the latter one of the genre’s biggest sellers of all time. It’s probably quicker to cite rare examples of household names that the Sunderland-born keyboard wizard hasn’t had the pleasure of playing with than to list the credits that he’s notched so far, though the latter category includes Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Brian May of Queen, Colosseum II, Judas Priest, the supergroup Living Loud, Babe ...

More recently, Don Airey has been a full-time member of Deep Purple since replacing Jon Lord in January 2003, playing on the legendary band’s ‘Bananas’ and ‘Rapture Of The Deep’ albums and enjoying successful worldwide tours.

Following up his second solo album ‘A Light In The Sky’, Don Airey releases ‘All Out’ on 22nd August 2011. Working with the same core musicians who played on ‘A Light In The Sky’, plus guest contributions from Joe Bonamassa, Bernie Marsden and brother, Keith Airey.

Describing the album Don says ‘The title “All Out” has a few references. The first is a cricketing one namely the awful feeling you get when your team’s innings comes to an end and you’re all out, the second to the sound you get from a Hammond organ when you pull all the drawbars out, driving the Leslie speakers flat out, the third the general philosophy of how the songs were recorded – full on, all out! I also wanted to showcase the organ in all it’s various roles, as a lead instrument as an accompaniment to a guitarist, and as a riff machine in its’ own right, crazy as it may sound!
