Ian Gillan is best known of course as the lead singer and lyricist for the truly legendary Deep Purple but his musical career takes in other avenues too. Upon leaving Purple in 1973, Gillan subsequently formed The Ian Gillan Band (around late 1975/early ‘76) and the band simply called ‘Gillan’ in 1978.  After a spell fronting ‘Black Sabbath’, Gillan rejoined a reunited ‘Deep Purple’ in 1984.  He left the band briefly in 1989 but rejoined a couple of years later and he performs with them still today across the world.  “The Voice of Deep Purple: The Gillan Years” celebrates a true one-off talent.
