Gillans lowest note...


This topic came up in a debate on another board on which vocalists have a 4+ range, and of course gillan came up. The debate isn't whether or not Gillan could ever sing really high, its how he can have a 4 octave range with his current voice as he doesn't seem to sing that low. What's gillans lowest note sung on a Purple song, or even outside of Purple? Gillan states he starts at bottom E, but that is pretty low....dunno if I've heard him sing that low at all.

The lowest I can think of would be No More Cane On The Brazos from Naked Thunder, where there are parts where he sings REALLY low.

Place In Line isn´t really deep, he just sings if far back in his throat but that doesn´t make it a really low note. I could think of more stuff from his solo stuff but as for Purple I´m not sure, there´s a couple of stuff on Purpendicular that´s pretty low and that´s what I liked about it, he didn´t push himself over the edge and sounded comfortable within his own borders.

The backing vocals for "Never A Word" from the Bananas album, lowest I can think of from the Purple material.

 He sings an octave lower than the lead vocal during the chorus of Perfect Strangers in the background.
"and if you hear me talkin on the wind
you've got to understand
we must remain
Perfect Strangers"
He's also going up and down on the "carsie wall" on Mary Long.
