Re: Gillan


maybe, I've heard it said IG liked to be on the road to get away from the other half, and 'have fun'. sure, must have taken its toll on his voice

Re: Gillan


Still on Gillan,

Drummer

on the Edinburgh dvd, McCoy says Ian Paice auditioned for them before Mick Underwood. Not something I was aware of before.

Finances

On the money issue, Phil Banfield on the Gillan ‘HS/Career retrospective’ Dvd claims the band always got paid, and challenges the former members to provide evidence otherwise.
It seems to me the Gillan band members weren’t aware that IG himself was not that well off around that period, despite his history. Hence having to join BS for a year to make some money after the DP reunion floundered in 1982.
His career choices were therefore founded on the belief that at some point DP would get back together, and he’d be ok financially from then on, hence pushing so hard for it.

I think the claim around being paid wasn't that they got paid, more than it was about the amount they received.

Re: Gillan


Incidentally I have been listening to Gillan Live at Reading Festival 1981 and after the sound was sorted during the opening song IG sounded fantastic.
Well worth a listen.
