From deep purple to mould green

derelict-guitar-pool

British tabloid Daily Mail reports that the mansion once owned by Ian Gillan (before being sold, converted to a hotel, which closed down in 2014) is now standing abandoned and in quite a derelict shape. This is the same mansion that Gillan put a guitar shaped pool in, as covered in his autobiography. This would essentially be a non story for a national newspaper if the property wasn’t once owned by a rock star. Probably still a non story, but hey, we’re dealing with tabloids here.

Read and see more pictures in Daily Mail.

Thanks to Jim Collins for the info.

    You mean you don’t even know that it was a hotel when Ian owned it? You follow all this crap about him living there as a home? This is THS, right?
