No! this is not the new band 'HAG'

Pic taken backstage during the Deep Purple US & Canadian tour 2004. To be found on Rogers' website.

Was this the Purple show Glenn went to with Chad smith??? and didn't he say he didn't know who those guys (Purple) were??

A watered down version of Thin Lizzy was opening for a watered down version of Deep Purple on that tour

Hey Ad, thanks for the two pictures.
The photo on the left was posted before.
Either here, or (now lost) on GH.com

It was about one of the times, when GH was
being interviewed on "Rockline" that I tried
(unsucessfully) to get through, because I
wanted to ask Glenn if there was any SIGNIFICANCE
to this photo's grouping of 3 "past and present Purples."
**********************************************

If Shirean and David use this photograph for the
next GHPG competition........here's my caption:

Glenn:
"Look guys, I know that we're all busy, touring and everything,
but please help me out. There's this wacko on my web site,
who just won't give it a rest. And won't stop nagging me until
ALL PREVIOUS DEEP PURPLE PEOPLE get together on stage,
and have a one-time only charity concert in New York City.
She says that since our magnificent contribution to music has
been sadly overlooked in the past, we need to do this,
so that we can get the publicity, the recognition and the respect
that we deserve. So how about it, Don and Roger?"

Hi Grace
Looks like Glenn's saying all that without moving his lips & given the fact that his hands are behind their backs, is he going into ventriliquism ? (gottle-a-geer,gottle-a-geer!!)
Cheers
Ben

Great pictures Ad!When I look at Ian Gillan in the second picture the thing that comes to my mind is: It that the same guy who sang incredible brutal on the Born Again record and tour? IMO the best Sabbath line up ever!

After this tour Ian Gillan's voice was never the same. Ian butchered his voice on this tour. If anyone has a live recording of this tour he/she would agree with me. Although Ian's voice was destroyed in this period I think it was all worth it!! BORN AGAIN rules

yes, definitely - he might have already wrecked most of it during the recording sessions of the Album. I haven't listened to this in years, but as far as I remember it, Gillan was screaming all over the place.
Pity and shame what he did to his voice. The Tour might have been great, yes, but worth almost ruining the thing you live of mostly? I don't know

Love the picture on the right, especially Michael Lee's big grin and Mr.Cool, Scott Gorham.
Is that Alice Cooper far left?

I was impressed with both "watered down" (or tribute bands) I saw in SF in 2004. I thought Gillan was especially impressive and was full on it. The clean ocean air of SF sure helps. He's not where Glenn's at obviously, but who is...The show and Ian Gillan was great. I'd be the first to complain if it sucked (like his horrible singing on the CD of Come Hell or High Water)

I heard some bootlegs of the Gillan Sabbath tour and thought they were good, but yesy he paid the price. I can't see his new solo project of re-recording old tracks being much good.

Still, he left behind quite the vocal legacy with 'Hot Line' from Born Again. that is an UNBELIEVABLE vocal!

[Am so glad to say I saw a BORN AGAIN show! Ian is not the only singer to have sung some Sabbath and play Jesus Christ. Can someone name the other guy? Don't know how many points this is worth.

I've racked my brains over that one Mark, and I'm going to take a long shot at Jeff Fenholt? Arguable whether he was a Black Sabbath member or not but that's my guess?

Thumbs up Thin Lizzy

I have yet to see Deep Purple ( was supposed to see them in San Antonio in 1987 but a broken finger on Ritchie's left hand put paid to those plans! ) but I did catch Thin Lizzy back in 2001 when they passed through Indianapolis. I was right up against the barrier no more than 5 feet from John Sykes. The lineup was a bit different from that in the pics in this thread; apart from Messrs Sykes and Gorham, Marco Mendoza played bass and Tommy Aldridge played drums.

John Sykes certainly has a full plate there but he was fabulous and the band was solid! I do understand why many feel that the current group is little more than a tribute.....but John Sykes gives the late, great Phil Lynott his due numerous times during the evening, exhorting the crowd to "give it up for Mr. Phil Lynott!!" Tommy had his usual drum solo with his patented "Look Ma..no sticks!!" performance.

The memory I have of that gig is the meet and greet afterwards. While Tommy was a no-show, the other 3 musicains came out to sign CD's and albums and pose for pictures with the fans. Marco Mendoza impressed me the most; I remarked to him that I didn't get out to very many concerts and he replied with "oh no man...you've got get out..you've got to live!!" His upbeat attitude was a pleasure to experience. I recently read an interview with him in a bass mag and learned that he went through a period in the drug wilderness but got clean and sober some years back and is full of positive energy!

We all love a success story don't we??

Talked to Mendoza a couple of years back after a Thin Lizzy show, and he was very friendly, talkative and signed my CDs. He was surprised that a guy from Austria brought those Japanese Import CDs to have them signed (so was Sykes) - but hey, where else did you get them back then!!??
Mendoza is a brilliant musician who also has all the time in the world for posing on stage and he's got lots of tattoos - the kind that must really hurt when made.
I also saw him with Whitesnake and he was pulling every Metal pose cliché you can imagine. Really funny. Coverdale referred to him as "sex on two legs".
That guy really knows what he's doing.
That's my impression at least.
Cheers,
Christian

I think he's very good and must be the busiest bass player in rock! He's in Sykes' band, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, Soul SirkUS and was in Whitesnake, plus his latin trio! Phew!

Hi all
Looks like Marco's workload has just got a bit less as the
Deep Purple.net site tells me he has officially left Whitesnake.
Cheers

Ian Gillan with Sabbath 1983-1984

found an interesting item on eBay - here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=4736739078
clearly a CD-R, as it seems, but the quality must be ok, really.
I have bought from this seller before, never a problem!

He has a couple of interesting items up, especially a Badlands show from Ray Gillen's last daze with the band and a couple of other interesting Live stuff.

I think I bought the "Picking Up The Pieces" CD-Single from him, if I remember correctly.

Cheers,
Christian
