Jon Lord records new track with Gillan, Iommi and McBrain

Jon Lord spent Wednesday recording a new track Out of My Mind in London with Ian Gillan, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain.

The track is intended for a charity single to raise money for a new music school in Armenia. Jason Newstedt will record bass tracks for the song.

Gillan and Iommi were both involved in the Rock Aid Armenia project which re-recorded Smoke On The Water in 1989 to aid rebuilding after the Leinakan struck Armenia in 1988. Revisiting the area 20 years later, Gillan and Iommi found the only structure not rebuilt was the music school, which they now intend to raise money for.
