Ian Gillan is a tit like. I saw them at Wembley Arena about 15yeats ago and he told some bullshit story about having daily conversations with the Challenger space shuttle crew before it blew up

Thank fuck for that - thought he was deed.

 

 

Never seen him live - queued up for tickets in 79 but didn't get them (day we beat QPR 4-2 when Peter Withe grabbed a dog).

Blackmores allegedly a moody get but he has a wicked sense of humour & is a guitar genius. One minute the heaviest metal & the next the most agile of classical playing .

I saw an interview with him once where he claimed he gave up rock after meeting Frank Sinatra who didn't have a clue who he was. I'd have been surprised if he had known.
