Ian Gillan

Gillan’s Inn reissue ? an all-star lock in

The incomparable Ian Gillan re-issues his 2006 album “Gillan’s Inn” on 7 November 2011 at mid-price via Edel’s international rock label, earMUSIC distributed in the UK & Republic of Ireland by Absolute via Universal. For many, he is the great voice of Deep Purple but Ian Gillan is much more than ‘just’ that. ‘Gillan’s Inn’ was intended as a celebration of 40 years as a singer at the very top of the rock tree. Having decided to visit some of the greatest classics from Deep Purple and of course his own solo career, Ian Gillan invited many of his friends to guest on an album that features tracks like ‘Smoke On The Water’, ‘When A Blind Man Cries’ and ‘Unchain Your Brain’ to name just a few.

Artists appearing on the album include Joe Elliot, Tony Iommi, Joe Satriani, Janick Gers, Uli Jon Roth, Johnny Rzeznick, Ronnie James Dio, Steve Morse, Jeff Healey, Roger Glover, Ian Paice and more! There must have been an amazing atmosphere during the recording of the album as Gillan has since observed that, despite the number of participants, this was the easiest project that he ever put together.
