Dealing with success

Vintage TV has posted online the Friday Night Rock Show that aired on October 14 and featured an extended interview with Ian Gillan at his home in Lyme Regis.

The interview actually starts about 5 minutes into this section of the show. Once you’ve finished with that video, select “#8 Part 3” to continue with the interview.

    Aside from the tale of barbaric school discipline,there’s nothing new here.
    Glad we didn’t get another “…..average age of a Deep Purple audience” or ” Ritchie & I used to room together on the road” rehash.
    The interview was probably meant to promote the Gillan vinyl box set,more than the forthcoming Purple record.

    A good interview with Gillan, heavily edited it seems, but still good to see!

    Really liked Blues Pills, reminded me of Jethro Tull (looks) and Be Bop Deluxe (sound).

    Dam he didn’t update us on how many countries Purple visited on the last tour, it keeps going up like the number of times Pavarotti saw him do smoke on the water(differently) only joking keep up the good work ps does anyone else think Ian has unusually long arms.

    Whilst the Gillan content in episode 8 of Nicky Horne’s Friday Night Rock Show ran to around 20 minutes, there’s about 48 minutes of them talking at http://www.vintage.tv/page/id/40508 – though it doesn’t include the original opening section where Ian was talking about his pre-Episode Six days (the beatings at school and his days as a singing drummer).
