DEEP PURPLE Frontman IAN GILLAN To Guest On KNAC.COM

DEEP PURPLE singer Ian Gillan will be the special guest of KNAC.COM radio personality Junkman on Monday, September 11 at 4:00 p.m. PST. Gillan will likely be discussing his current solo album, "Gillan's Inn", as well as his current foray into writing his first novel, titled "Wessex", which he describes as "a political thriller."

Gillan's current five-week North American run is in support of "Gillan's Inn", which he released to celebrate 40 years in the music business. He will wrap things up September 21 in Medina, Minnesota.

"Gillan's Inn", which came out on April 18, spans the four decades of Gillan's professional life and features some of his friends as guest performers, including his mates in DEEP PURPLE, the GOO GOO DOLLS, and singer-guitarist Jeff Healey, among many others.

"Gillan's Inn" is a DualDisc, and the DVD side has a track-by-track commentary from Gillan, along with scenes from the recording sessions, rare live footage, and other extras.

DEEP PURPLE is currently on a break from a planned two-year-long world tour behind their latest album, "Rapture of the Deep". The band goes out again starting October 3 in Salzburg, Austria.
