His wife was just as mad as he was.
    The sooner Ritchie stops kidding on he is Blackadder 2, the better and gets back to being a kick *** guitarist

    As for Ian Gillan, in his time 70,80 and the early 90 one of the best singers in the world of rock. Im afraid time has not been kind to his voice. I appreciate that he is in his mid 60 so it is time to call it a day

    I love Ian Gillan, a true British living legend. He could go on stage and sing passages from a telephone directory and I would still love it. Biased much?

    He said on BBC documentary Heavy Metal Britannia 'What I do is called screaming'. True that, sounds like he is having an orgasm on stage! It's incredibly sexy screaming.

    I saw Rainbow, at the Rainbow theatre in london, I think it was called the "Between the Eyes" tour. They were using the big electric rainbow over the stage, looked fantastic, but caused a lot of trouble with the power it used. Later incarnations still have the rainbow, but it is not as animated as it was when I saw them. The rainbow was built by Bob See's See Factor company. I've been looking for some time for an online video of it in full action, but failed. See Factor could not help. Bob See died recently.

    I saw Whitesnake for the first time last year, they played a gig in Helsingør, Denmark.

    Deep Purple's latest (and probably final) studio album 'Infinite' is the first new vinyl I've bought in around a quarter of a century. It's classic DP material and, unlike some ageing front men, I think Gillan's voice sounds pretty damn good.
    i'd almost forgotten the sensual pleasure of opening a gate-fold 12" album sleeve and lowering a stylus onto vinyl!

    Grew up listening to these guys since I was 8. Amazing vocals, guitar and dynamite songs that blasted everything else out of the water. Rainbow were at their best with Dio but there were great moments with Bonnet and Turner.

    It’s very odd how some old singers keep their voices even thirty years later yet others have completely gone and kinda let their band sound down .

    I saw Paul Rogers on Sky and even though he’s looking his age the voice is still fabulous
