Hopes and revelations

More Purple coverage in the press, albeit not quite on the magazine covers level.

MOJO #369 Gillan interview

MOJO issue 369 (August 2024, with Stevie Nicks on the cover) has an extensive interview with the junior pole-vaulter-turned-vocal-acrobat Ian Gillan, covering his career from the first interests in music up to the present day.

    Portable door is still getting airplay on planet rock, I don’t think Lazy sod has made the playlist yet. Radio 2 have yet to back the new songs like they did with whoosh.
