“I had an acetate [of Deep Purple In Rock] and I played it on my radiogram, and my Uncle Ivor was in the room. He ran, screaming, holding his hands over his ears. I felt vaguely let down because I wanted to impress him!”
Inktober, 5th pic! Requested by @oritenai san! This is the 1978 Blackmore/Gillan date, eeerr… reunion at the Marquee, also featuring Gillan’s members and my fav otaku in the audience.

Hey guys! If you are interested, here is Ian Gillan’s autobiography! You can check it here!
“Ian Gillan details nonstop partying, groupies, drugs, alcohol, friction with guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and how everything spiraled out of control, ending the band. He continued solo and with Black Sabbath before ultimately reuniting with Deep Purple. The band released its twentieth album in April 2017, peaking at #6 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart, and is conducting a farewell tour in fall 2017.”
