April 14, 2005

DEEP PURPLE frontman Ian Gillan has finished recording several songs for his new album, "Gillan's Inn", which will document and celebrate his 40 years in the rock world. Tracks completed thus far include "Hang Me Out To Dry", "Sugar Plum", "Day Late And A Dollar Short", "Unchain Your Brain", "Speed King", "Bluesy Blue Sea", "Trashed", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "Can I Get A Witness", "Men Of War", "Loving On Borrowed Time", "When A Blind Man Cries", "Smoke On The Water", "No Laughing In Heaven", "Demon's Eye" and "No Worries" (new song). It has not yet been decided which tracks or which versions of those tracks will be on the album, but they will all see the light of day in one form or another. Guest musicians on the CD will include Joe Satriani, Don Airey, Ian Paice, Mickey Lee Soule, Roger Glover, Jeff Healey, Janick Gers, Jon Lord, Steve Morris and Dean Howard among others. The recordings will be completed by the end of April, while mixing and mastering will be done by the end of May. Concurrently, a documentary is in production for English network television, and it will eventually see release on DVD.
