Icon34 Classic Rock Feb 2009 - DP Special

the new February 2009 edition (yes i know its still December!) has Deep Purple on the cover, for the first time, and a 20 page feature on the band.

there is a lot of stuff that's been published before but its not a bad piece overall. plenty of pics and quotes, including from JLT and Glenn, and of course the usual "Blackmore's a twat" comments.

there's a copy of an interview RB did in 1978 just as Rainbow released LLRAR that i actually found the most interesting out of all of it.

as its so big i wont scan and post it all as David might get into trouble with the mag but here's a few quotes -

"i will not have a bad word said against JLT" Ian Paice

"Glenn Hughes is one of the most naturally talented musicians but he's still copying Steve Wonder to this day, so i cant call him a bone-fide member of DP" - IG

"me and Glenn were the Unrighteous Brothers" - DC

"The Stones? I considered them idiots. i respect them but i dont like them" - RB

"RB is probably the most articulated guitarist i've heard in my life. He's an unearthly gifted musician" - IG

"we spent more time in the pub than the studio" - IG on Perfect Strangers.

"Glenn Hughes____(blah, blah)____so I can't call him a bonafied member of DP."

WHAT????

So three years of composing, recording, and touring don't count?
I guess Glenn should expect a lawsuit from Deep Purple Incorporated,
since he's not entitled to the (formerly of Deep Purple) insert, huh?

WOW! Jealousy, Mr. Gillan, is an evil thing...........

Grace, To tell the truth...at times I wished Glenn had never left Trapeze. If he had stayed I think they would've been HUGE!!!

there's also a short piece by Lars Ulrich (Metallica) saying he loves MKIII DP and would fill in for Ian Paice if Glenn and DC get together with RB.

he also says he wants Metallica to do Soldier of Fortune.

By his own admission, Mr Gillan obviously spends far tooo much time in the pub. What a really stupid thing to say about big G. WHAT A DIPSTICK!!

I can still remember my reaction to the news in Circus magazine, that Glenn had been hired on as Purples' bassist and singer. Ecstatic - and thinking "Oh man, great choice"! I believe that Glenns' contributions and showmanship are what kept Purple going from 73' to 76'. Definitely a bona-fide member in this fans' opinion.

I've always liked Gillan. It's a pity that instead of getting in a dig at his Deep Purple step-brothers, he couldn't just say something like "Although I wouldn't be comfortable performing that material, I will say that the albums featuring Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale were quite good."

I also think that even though he performs 'Hush', which was a hit for Mk I of the band, it's only because it was actually a cover of a song by Joe South.

Cheers...Todd

i don't even know why i'm posting here. i try to live by the "if you don't have anything good to say...." moto. i've always been such a big Gillan fan, purple and solo, i just cannot understand why he seems to continuously take the low road when it comes to Glenn. my guess is that he , in the privacy of his own room listens to the music that G. has done/is doing and just can't get the jelousy monkey off his back. it's just such a shame. it's also just another reason why i love Glenn, the person and the musician, so much because he knows where the high road is and always chooses to travel on it.
peace to you all...even to you Ian ( i bet you log on here under some assumed name, although i don't remember seeing Garth Rocket ever signed on to here)

Cool

Despite being a huge glenn and coverdale fan...

but also gillan's solo career was too sophisticated and original

just give a listen to mr.universe or scarabus

but maybe gillan talks from his rock/metal point of view maybe he

is not a huge funk /stevie wonder fan so he gave this opinion.

but if it was not for glenn and DC and the funk they injected in DP the band wouldn't have been that various and broaded sounded band.

i appritiate gillan of course and mk2 but iam a huge burn and mk3/mk4 fan.

purple rulezzzzzzzzzz even with JLT despite that his sound is too far away from the original DP.

i wish that somebody puts some pages of this special feature.

thank u

good point, it was also on his "Magic" album I believe. even though he did rock it up a bit to make it not sound so much like a true immitation type cover. but I would also say that G. did the same thing w/ "Maybe your baby" from his "Feel" release. which is, by the way, one of my favorite songs on one of my favorite albums

peace,

I think it is true that GH was a real member who replaced Mr. Gillan successfully. More over, Glenn even increased the No. of DP fans than ever and developped DP music than ever.

I don't want to be hard on Mr. Gillan as I like him but such attitude of him makes me feel like Mr. Gillan is so worried to be replaced again by such a tallented musician who can really sing even today.

Great to see you back here again, Tony!!!

I hope that everything is going well for you and your family.

(And I agree with your opinion of Mr. Gillan.)

They both have their times of greatness

I love Glenn and love Ian. Two different people with 2 different voices. Why compare. The question is why is Ritchie Blackmore playing the CRAP he is now instead of showing his true (Purple,Rainbow) colors

I like what Ritchie's doing these days. Would I like to hear him record another Rainbow album? Sure. But if the alternative to Blackmore's Night is retirement, I'll gladly take the kinder, gentler acoustic Blackmore than none at all.

It's disappointing that a guy of obvious Ian Gillan's apparent intelligence lets himself (and everybody else) down with silly comments like that. Yes I agree. It's not a brilliant idea to compare but what goes for the fans should also go for the band members too.

I am just as drawn to the comments about Blackmore's technical ability. I bet RB is writing his thank you card as we speak. "Dear Ian I was heartened to read your comments about my guitar playing and don't mind in the least being blotted off the cover of Machine Head. Ooo I am so awkward sometimes and probably deserved it...."

This ridiculous quote should be turned on its head. How about this? Ian Gillan is not a bona fide member of Deep Purple if he is dressing up like Huckleberry Finn. Put some damn shoes on man and maybe the other guys will get the message that DP is a kick ass rock band again!

None of this stops me personally from loving the whole DP scene. And in a way it would not be DP if it wasn't for something like this spoiling the cap doffing.

The great buzz of being a Deep Purple fan is the diversity of the music which came during and after. We have funk, rock, poetry (from IG) classical and folk music. As a fan, you pick and choose which you want to stay with. As a musician you are a bona fide member of the band IF you were in the damn thing. Glenn Hughes was and Ian Gillan wasn't when Burn, Stormbringer et al were recorded.

On the subject of influences. Every one has those. Sometimes they are more distinct over time. But to reduce an artist to one is a total insult. What about the Detroit scene? Jazz? AOR aka Journey and Boston? Wasn't Knocking on Your Back Door an attempt at FM friendly vibes? Did Perfect Strangers sound a little bit like Kashmir? Hey no problem with those. Great songs but generic.

Oh and while I am being risque, there is only ONE man for the Led Zeppelin job. If Queen can tour with Rodgers, Zep can do a similar thing with Glenn Hughes. But would he want to do it is the question? Your guess is as good as mine. But here's the stinger. Ian Gillan couldn't. Maybe in 1981 yes but not now. Neither can Robert Plant. Where's the big mystery in Planty's rebuff? He can't do a Led Zep tour any more because he aint 23. Bussing up with Alison Slappa Ma Thigh is an easy option. You get to squawk about Granny's plantation two octaves down. Yeah right "ooo let's see Krause or Zeppelin?"

Lars doing drums for Purple? yeah go fo it. I don't see why not. Influences are crucial. It's about getting the f**** thing moving and financed, not pussy footing around someone's flower beds in some far away country house wherever. If you're in you're in. If you you wanna do cabaret with hippies in bare feet, stroll on.

Back to those comments. So disheartening to read that ****! And I think he should be told about it. Get another chapter rolling with Joel, Glenn. You don't have to take that craptrap any more from anyone.
