Chandra’s Coriandra in the Caymans

Ian Gillan at 96.5 Cayrock, 2016

Some time in early 2016 Ian Gillan was vacationing in Cayman Island (and if Rapture of the Deep has taught us anything, it’s that he is into the scuba diving). During his stay there, he was invited to the local rock radio station 96.5 Cayrock that resulted in a very relaxed 3.5 hours long special that was on the air some time right before the RnR HoF induction. And while nothing groundbreakingly revealing have been said, you can do a lot worse lazing on that Sunday afternoon. Lots of music has been played too, and not just the usual and the obvious.


Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    I recall this interview from 2016. Excellent.
    It was the first time I ever heard Gethsemane from Jesus Christ Superstar.
    That song encapsulated the power of Gillan in his youth.From a whisper to a scream……literally.

    Thanks so much for sharing this unique interview focusing on Ian’s favorite music.

    Was a true honor to have him in the studio, and he has promised a return visit on his next trip to the Cayman Islands.

    I will let you know when that happens, again thanks.

    Thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours with Ian playing a section of DP tracks and other Ian-related tracks as well as favourite songs by other artists. Recommended
