    Ian Gillan: The Autobiography of Deep Purple’s Singer by Ian Gillan w/David Cohen Book Review

    Deep Purple singer Ian Gillan released his autobiography in the late 90s.

    Called Ian Gillan:  The Autobiography of Deep Purple’s Singer, he talks about his upbringing, early bands, playing Jesus for the Jesus Christ Superstar album, his stints with Deep Purple (3 stints, 3rd time was the charm, staying to this day), his solo stuff and brief time as the singer of Black Sabbath, fun, wild rock and roll road stories, and just his life basically. 

    It also includes some of his lyrics interspersed throughout, when talking about certain life stories, in which he wrote into song.

    It’s a fun read and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of his or just a fan of music, bands, and life on the road.

    Like I said, this book was initially released in the late 1990s, but has reprinted a few times.

    Ian is still going strong with Deep Purple, FINALLY being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, still making albums, actually releasing a new album in 2024 and still touring.

    Ian Gillan is one of my favorite singers and I’ve been blessed to see him in concert 3 times as of this writing.

    He’s always been great and always will be, as far as I’m concerned.
