ULI JON ROTH Guests On IAN GILLAN's Anniversary CD

Legendary guitarist Uli Jon Roth (ex-SCORPIONS) will be featured as a guest performer on DEEP PURPLE frontman Ian Gillan's upcoming album "Gillan's Inn". The album celebrates Ian's 40 years in the world of rock, and Ian invited a dazzling number of friends and fellow musicians to contribute performances. These include, among others, all the current members of DEEP PURPLE, as well as Ronnie James Dio, Jon Lord, Joe Satriani, Tony Iommi, Dean Howard, Jeff Healey and Michael Lee Jackson. It has been rumoured that Luciano Pavarotti might also be part of the equation.

Uli recorded multiple lead guitars for two tracks, which, by all accounts, came out stunning. The two songs are "Day Late and a Dollar Short" and "Loving On Borrowed Time".

This was, in fact, Uli's first ever guest appearance on a rock album.

Commented Roth: "It was an honor to be asked by Ian to be part of this, and I accepted gladly, because I have always been a big fan of his singing and I had a lot of fun recording the guitars for the tracks."

As previously reportd, other tracks completed for "Gillan's Inn" include "Hang Me Out To Dry", "Sugar Plum", "Unchain Your Brain", "Speed King", "Bluesy Blue Sea", "Trashed", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "Can I Get A Witness", "Men Of War", "When A Blind Man Cries", "Smoke On The Water", "No Laughing In Heaven", "Demon's Eye" and "No Worries" (new song). It has not yet been decided which tracks or which versions of those tracks will be on the album, but they will all see the light of day in one form or another. Concurrently, a documentary is in production for English network television, and it will eventually see release on DVD.
