Black Sabbath/Deep Purple/Iron Maiden Supergroup to Record Single

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi and Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan are set to record together once again - but this time they will do so with Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain and former Deep Purple pianist Jon Lord. The supergroup are set to record a single for an Armenian music school. Using the moniker Whocares, their first charity single will be titled "Out of My Mind."

In 1989, Iommi and Gillan were involved in the recording of the infamous Deep Purple track "Smoke on the Water."
