IAN GILLAN Celebrating 40 Years In Rock: The DVDApril 26, 2005
Ian Gillan and the producer of the upcoming DVD celebrating Gillan's 40 years in the rock world, Craig Hooper, have posted a letter on Ian's official web site about the upcoming DVD. An excerpt from Craig's portion of the letter follows:
"This film takes a look at Gillan's life of forty years of hard road, recording, excesses, humour, riches, poverty, trend setting, and his complete and current devotion to rock and roll. In this film, you will hear friends, musicians Gillan has worked with and influenced, even Gillan's mum, tell their stories about moments along the way in Ian's life."
"Tony Iommi was interviewed at his home and talks about Gillan's uproarious days with SABBATH. It was many of the stories from the SABBATH days that inspired 'Spinal Tap', and you'll hear all about it, from the Stonehenge replica, the druids, to Ian's maniacal midnight car race that ended with a song called 'Trashed' — quite amazing that he's here to tell the story."
"Never before has such intimate footage of Gillan, and about Gillan, been captured, and in my humble opinion, as producer and fan, this will be a must-have for anyone who has been moved by Gillan's voice and music over the years."
