JOE LYNN TURNER Performs DEEP PURPLE Classics On Turkish TV; Video Available

Footage of legendary hard rock vocalist Joe Lynn Turner (RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) performing the DEEP PURPLE classics "Smoke on the Water" and "Burn" with Turkish guitarist Cem Kksal on the Turkish TV show "Hiperaktif" this past Tuesday (April 22) can be viewed below.

In a recent interview with, Joe Lynn Turner stated about the possibility of a RAINBOW reunion with him on vocals, "My relationship with [RAINBOW mastermind] Ritchie [Blackmore] is good but he seems professionally and personally committed to BLACKMORE'S NIGHT and that genre of music which he absolutely loves. He is probably living his dream and I admire him for having the guts years ago to branch out and be so successful with that concept. Because of his devotion to BLACKMORE'S NIGHT, I am not sure what he thinks about reforming RAINBOW. If he were to ever do so, I would love to join the reunion and work with Blackmore again."

When asked if there will be any new music coming from BIG NOIZE, the new supergroup featuring Joe Lynn Turner, guitarist Carlos Cavazo (QUIET RIOT), drummer Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH), bassist Phil Soussan (OZZY OSBOURNE, BILLY IDOL) and Teddy "Zig Zag" Andreadis (GUNS N' ROSES), Joe said, "Yes, we do plan to write and record some originals down the road. I am not sure when they would be done or released and I know I keep mentioning the schedule situation but that is really the only thing holding us back. And when I say that, I mean we are involved in other endeavors that we love just as much. I have to write and record two albums this year ('Sunstorm' and solo) as it is and my summer is jam-packed with live dates."
