Re: Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Gillan? Who's THE MAN?


 Well, I'm still debating whether to treat this as a pureply rhetorical question or not. emoticon
 Though I do know that it's quite easy for me to pick out who's NOT "The Man" from the list of names submitted. emoticon

Re: Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Gillan? Who's THE MAN?


Well let me put it this way...

Forgot to mention that when I asked the question, I was thinking about all of these four men's 'last 30-35 year-careers'. In and out of DP. Four, not five - Evans I did not mention on purpose, and I don't think I need to justify this at all... No disrespect meant, but let's face it - he was there before REAL PURPLE, as we know it today, came to light. Credit to the man for sowing the seed anyway... And I must admit that except the initial original 3 studio Purple albums back in '68/'69, I ain't heard anything from the man...

However, all things considered = decades that is = u guys still think Gillan is the one? No way...

In the 70's - maybe. Today - or should I say since the middle of 80's - no way!

Hughes tops him? - by all means!

Child In Time - who could do it just as good? - Hughes. Better even? - Hughes only! The last 10-15 years - certainly not Gillan!

Exqusite vocal performance over the last 35 years - Hughes & Coverdale. Gillan - no way! Facts are there for all to see... The man's best years are long gone... Turner - good in studio, awful in concerts...

Please note that I have 95% of the all the mentioned guys' catalogues. (Not to mention DP!). I have really been thinking about this a lot after all the years. Please agree/disagree - as long as u show interest. That's all that counts anyway... I hope all four guys will be with us for many years to come...

I never heard Hughes singing "Child in Time". Did you? If so, where? And he was backing vocalist in Deep Purple. He was NOT Deep Purple's LEAD singer. Rod Evans and all the others were.

And BTW, IMO, Evans did far more than Turner for the image of Deep Purple. I would just say "Hush".

I should say that they all rule supreme. All great singers. Nowadays Coverdale is the most dissapointing while Hughes and Turner kick some huge butt for the last few years. Both seem to be at their peak. Gillan really should visit recording studio a little bit more often to prove he's still the man!

Re: Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Gillan? Who's THE MAN?


Your initial post lead me to believe you meant in the context of Purple.

If you are talking about "career" then my choice would have to be Coverdale. The man's voice exudes emotion and reaches more deeply into my being than any other.

If you are talking about prolific output and amazing vocal ability and range (even to this day) then my choice would be Hughes.

Special mention must go out to Ronnie James Dio who will always hold a special place in my heart (and ears).

There are others though, such as Jorn Lande and Doogie White that have many years ahead of them.

Ian Gillan is in a space all on his own. There is no one like him. Who else could have survived Blackmore not just once, not just twice, but three times and kept on going! emoticon The best story teller of the lot with an amazing catalog of material. The ultimate hard rock singer.

a) Well that's kindova important factor! emoticon

b) You hint at the justification in a) then do justify it in c). Nothing wrong with that, though.

c) The "REAL Purple"? Every Mk of Deep Purple is the "Real Deep Purple". emoticon Mk I was and is a stellar band (the recordings are there to enjoy - that's the context of my use of the word "is" ) And no, unfortunately Evans didn't enjoy an extensive career after DP, and left the music business for a few good reasons of a personal nature in the early 70s. We all know of his ill-advised return in 1980 to front the "Bogus" Deep Purple...

d) Maybe?!? Maybe?!? Gillan was the absolute, stellar rock vocalist - #1 , no question - from 1969 through 1982. No more argument will be considered. emoticon ( emoticon )

e) This is a matter of opinion to many - but I'd have to say his standing would be "spotty", at best. Sometimes fantastic, sometimes pretty awful.

f) Maybe - again, a matter of opinion.

g) Who could do it as good? Do you mean as good as the "In Rock" version? The "Powerhouse" version? The "Scandinavian Nights" version? The "Black Night In Denmark" version? The "Made In Japan" version? Any one of the innumerable bootleg versions? Any of the versions from Gillan's "solo" years' studio + live versions?
 The answer is as obvious as the rather long nose on the front of my regal equine head - NO ONE! emoticon

h) I'd have to agree with this - from 1982 - 1994/5, he could pull it off occasionally - but certainly not with the night-to-night consistancy he could when he was younger.

i) Balderdash! emoticon From the last 35 years?!? Well, let's break it down...as I already said, from 1969 - 1982, it's Gillan. As you say, the "facts" are there. emoticon That's 13 out of your 35 years...for the 1984 - 2004 period, I can (I think) safely + fairly give Gillan 7 of those years...so, that's a combined - minimum - of 20 out of the last 35 - more than half.

j) emoticon

k) Of the total catalogue available, I have at least 95% also. Just not 95% of each individual's listed. Please refer to j). emoticon

l) As you can see, always happy to accomodate. emoticon

m) Me too. emoticon

Re: Turner, Hughes, Coverdale, Gillan? Who's THE MAN?


Well, let me say that all that we post here is nothing but - opinions! I see no expert analyses round here... no need for it anyway...

What the heck! The best I can accept is that Gillan can be 'given' the honor for the 70's. But 80's and 90's - not to mention the 21st century - it just doesn't match what he was capable of in the 70s. Must be the age... On the other hand, Hughes and Coverdale seem to grow old and - just grow better! MkIII vocal-wise - definitely! Today Hughes and Coverdale - no one beats them!

And Gillan's dressing style lately - that just hurts my eyes! Okay, he is almost 60! But there are others just the same age that still look like rock is really in their blood! I just can't help it...
