Gillan: a racist?


I was listening to "A French Kiss" the other day when, between SIFLS and Watching The Sky, Gillan says "I seem to have one of your countrymen in my throat", which I thought very amusing...but nobody in the audience was laughing emoticon .

Re: Gillan: a racist?


French kiss...recorded in France I suppose.
Two solutions 1)It is to everybody's knowledge that most french (from France) don't speak English, they sure think they do, but trust me they don't!Therefor they probably didn't understand what Gillan was saying and didn't laugh...
2)France has that "Sex/romantic" reputation, so maybe Gillan thought of a sexy French girl and his vibrantimagination carried on to the point that he thought he had a French pussy-hair caught in his throat.

If it wasn't in France...it still might be a pussy-hair...
I believe Gillan would be more of a sex-oriented person than a racist.

Indeed, it was recorded in Besancon, France. I suspect that explanation number 1) was true...but I prefer 2) emoticon .

Gillan's for sure no racist! It was just one of his silly remarks and jokes as usual.

 I suspect IG was doing what RS did recently when he peeved me off no end but didnt mean to. That is, was just joking. However I would have told IG off good style for it had I have been there because its not good to joke at others expense.If anyone says frog for french I always bring it to their notice.Often people dont realise they are being offensive so its important to point it out to them.

What's wrong with saying that anyway?, to me it sounds like he was actually using it affectionately.

I recall 'Woman from Tokyo' being described as a 'Venezuelan' song...after the spitting incident between a 'fan' and Steve Morse.

If you have a problem about racism, or the such....call Johnie Cochran for his Chewbacca defense.
