Quantum thinking

Canadian blog Music Legends did a rather lengthy interview with Ian Gillan, which started with a couple (by now) mundane questions about WhoCares but quickly veered pretty far off the beaten track. Big Ian got to talk about things ranging from record remasters, to the state of the music business, to the future of the space age and computers.

Thanks to Blabbermouth for the info.

    Message To Bob Ezrin:
    YOU produced it…YOU name it!
    That doesn’t sound very encouraging does it. Not to mention the band not being involved in the track listing. Although his comments at the end were a little positive regarding the new stuff.

    Man alive, I haven’t listened to this, but “future?” Do a little friggen math, it’s not rocket science. More toruing, album release, more touring…. over and out. A few years tops, what’s to ask?

    whats with Gillan and his obsession with age on Purples concerts, apparently 90% of Purples audience are around 15 years old, could that be right? When I see photos from behind the scenes and VIP partys many of the fans are well up in their 40-50:s and thats ok with me, we are the ones who were there the first time around, in the early 70:s and its great, but why try to hide it?

    ‘@ 5

    Yesterday I ve got in contct with a 16 year old Dutchie that said he is a huge fan of the band.
    So, maybe………..

    It is gain remarkable ofcourse.

    Then again : he feels the nowadays band and their music is crap and that he preferres the old days.

    It is likewhat someone here wrote a long time ago when hearing Rapture Of the Deep together with his son :

    His son had already developed s trong sense of ” this is bullshit” compared to the classic era.
