They ended up at the Grand Hotel

Tribune de Genève has an account of Roger Glover revisiting the site of the Grand Hotel. The hotel itself has closed long time ago and the building now houses a pharmacy and a business school on the ground floor with upscale condo in the upper floors. As such, the building is normally not accessible to the visitors. Apparently Simon Robinson contacted the owners a few months ago and arranged the visit.

Roger was accompanied by his family, Don Airey, Simon, and Jean-Paul Marquis (stage manager at the Casino the night it burned down). A small reception for the guests was arranged at the lobby.

The article is in French, but be sure to check out the photo gallery even if you don’t read the language.

Thanks to Andrey Gusenkov for the info.

    I recall making the pilgrimage to the hotel many years ago whilst on a trip thru Switzerland. To the scene of the crime… A moving experience, no less…
