Comments? Hot gossip?? Tell me all about it  

In 1978 Ian Gillan claimed that he was "Bringing Joanna back". Well, she disappeared again and was not found until the Deep Purple Web Crew brought her back from the kitchen in Rosa's Cantina. We rescued her and dubbed her "Miss Joanna - The Cantina Goddess". From now on Joanna is in charge of all the juicy Deep Purple related gossip.

The party is over (sniff, sniff), but what a party. First 1 month in the USA with the boys and then 1 month in Europe. In Europe there were a new boy, called Don. A very nice man, but I hope Jon will be back soon. I miss him very much, he is such a gentleman. There were many late nights during this summer and I met lots of nice people both in USA and Europe. But now I am going to have a rest because the boys have to do some work in the studio, before it's time to go east and west. Perhaps I might have the chance to visit some cool pubs in UK after New Year's, before it's time to possibly travel around in Eastern Europe and Russia. Who knows, maybe I will also come to the USA next summer. That would be fun. Anyway, now it's time to put up my feet and have a soda. Thanks to you all, it was a great summer. Many kisses.

Ahh, the spring is coming and the boys are soon ready to hit the road again. It's time for another party in the US. I really looking forward to those shows and I also heard a Emu whispering in my ear, that it's possible that the boys will start to bootleg themselves. Perhaps it will happen already when the US tour start. They will not use a Walkman in the boots, instead there are plans to use high quality soundboard/multitrack, which will be possible to buy in the merchandising stand. That would be very cool, since I like to listen on live recordings with good sound. Stay tuned boys and girls. Many kisses.

Love, Joanna
