    I don’t think it will go over that well stateside. At the end they will sit around and wonder what they did it for!!

    If I had a few more frequent flyer points I might be tempted to trek across the Pacific to once again hear “The Voice of Deep Purple”.

    It will be great to see Ian in New York in a small venue mixing it up with different musicians,
    and a catalog of 35 years of great material to pull from. Good clean loud fun !!!!

    It will be interesting to see what songs he does other than the ones that appear on the Gillan’s Inn cd. Here’s a chance for him to do some really great stuff that has not been played in years if ever. A couple of suggestions, Running White Face City Boy, Long Gone,Smooth Dancer, Flight Of The Rat, Place In Line, Future Shock. I would love to here any of these. See you in New York!
