Reviews

Two-disk collection tells the story behind Ian Gillan - the voice of heavy rock legend Deep Purple in over 6 hours of interviews and performances. Luminaries from the music world and beyond (George Best, Pavarotti) pay tribute to perhaps the classic manifestation of 'the rock voice' who not only fronted one of the most seminal bands ever but proved his versatility by starring as the voice of Jesus in the original cast of 'Jesus Christ Superstar'.

Format: DVD
I just had a look at the new DVD, Ian Gillan: Highway Star - A Journey in Rock celebrating Ian's 40 years in the music business. I must say that the DVD is brilliant! This is an excellent and very personal look at the man, his music, his successes, and his failures. The story is told though very open and sometimes uncomfortably-honest interviews with Ian himself, of course, but also Ian's mum, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, Ian Paice, Don Airey, Steve Morse, Joe Satriani, Steve Morris, Tony Iommi, Ronnie Dio, Luciano Pavarotti, Colin Towns, Joe Elliot, "Funky" Claude Nobs, the beautiful and elegant Bron Gillan, and the late George Best.

The DVD is a thorough look at Ian's career from his first bands, which he fronted as Jess Thunder and Garth Rockett, on through Episode Six, Deep Purple, and his solo efforts. There is some amazing footage from all phases, including some great photos and rare footage that I have never seen before. There is even some footage from Ian's own private collection, never before seen, that is offered here. Some of the footage here includes television performances with Episode Six, great footage from Deep Purple's Bananas and Rapture tours, footage of the original Ian Gillan Band, and parts of a local news documentary showing rehearsals for the Gillan album Magic, showing the band tearing through a version of Lucille. Fans will be exceptionally pleased.

The interviews with former and current band members are particularly enlightening. Ian himself comes across as a very grounded, very down-to-earth, and open type of person. Of course, this will not really come as a surprise to those of us who know him. But the interviews with Roger, Paicey, and Jon offer a lot of insight into the infamous feud between Ritchie Blackmore and Ian.

Being a bit of a lapsed Purple fan, starting from an almost unhealthy worship of everything they did to a more recent general respect, I was very curious to see what exactly this DVD was about.
Having just been through the whole thing I must say that for anyone with a keen interest in the whys and whens and hows of this fantastic band there's only one choice - buy this.
As will be no surprise, Ian Gillan comes accross as that strange mixture of a complex but at the same time no nonsense personality, clearly immersed in what he does, and with a high degree of respect for the fans. It's true that the whole thing misses any personal input whatsoever from Richie Blackmore, but then what should we expect? Nevertheless contributions from everyone else concerned gives a fairly full picture of the frictions that have become legendary, without laying the blame at any one person's door. The final verdict on Ian Gillan's part in the feud is certainly not that of the innocent victim, but more of a clash of two very strong but disparate personalities, and with a general feeling of regret that such creative personalities were not able to do even greater things over a longer term relationship.
One refreshing surprise was to see the latest lineup playing together. This has more than tempted me to get out and see them at the next available opportunity.
In short, if you like Deep Purple, in any of its incarnations this is definitely something to consider very seriously indeed, and if you are looking to buy something for someone who likes Deep Purple then just get this.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Long awaited release, this double DVD is surely to be treasured -for the obvious reasons- by Gillan/Deep Purple fans - BUT there are some things that will put off the ones who expect a 'real' journey from past to present. The first dvd offers three hours of exausting 'de profundis' Gillan interview and storytelling of 'why' and 'how' with DP and about the rest of the bands he was involved in, while we get comments from the members of DP ( Richie Blackmore's NOT included, of course); We also get a lot of jokes, behind the stage stories and friends' talking about Ian - so far so good. What we DON'T get is archive footage from all these years.

There's only glimpses and shortcuts which prove that there is a lot of material, but for some reason we don't get one single COMPLETE performance from The Javellins, or from Ian Gillan Band or from Gillan days - actually the best chance to include such valuable stuff was this double dvd...

And then the second dvd comes with another three hours of the most recent Deep Purple world tour performances - I have nothing against the DP of the 2005, but this release supposed to be the journey of Ian Gillan from 1966 up to now - so, I was disappointed, because what I really wanted to enjoy is stuff that is rarely seen or broadcasted from the past years. Of course, the whole release is a must for Gillan/DP admirers - but it could be so much better, regarding these six hours...

This 2-DVD set is amazing.

On the first DVD, there's a nearly complete biography of this living legend: Ian Gillan. Full of anecdotes, it's fascinating.
On the second one, there's a documentary behind the scenes of a tour.

For Ian fans, a must-have!

The DVD is an enjoyable run through of Gillans career. With the pre/early Purple stuff nicely done and very interesting. But you feel (and having seen things like Rock Family Trees) that you are only getting one side of the story.
Blackmore(obviously) and his ex Gillan band mates would have added balance to the story-with the bad blood that must exist never being looked at, or for
Four stars for the value for money and for adding to my knowledge of what for a long time was my favourite band
One star off for not including more music, I guess for cost reasons, and for not looking for what would have been more negative opinions
