    IG a écrit:

    Ian Gillan has a special affection for Gillan.

    “We weren't together that long (1979-1982), but during this time we did a lot of great music. It was an amazing time for rock, and we were a big part of it. The fact that we did the Reading Festival every year from 1979 to 1981, each time further up the bill until we headlined the last time, underlines the way Gillan just grew. We also got to the Monsters Of Rock at Donington in 82.

    “It was a band that never rested on reputation, and we did record some superb songs.”

    Here are Ian Gillan's personal favourites. “They're not in any special order," he says. "They all mean something to me.”

    The Gillan box set – The Vinyl Collection – is released on October 21.


    Bluesy Blue Sea (from Magic, 1982)

    “I love this, because it's completely different to anything we ever did before. I am always inspired by the first thing I see in the morning. I was in Dorset when I wrote this, and it was the sea that really influenced my thinking here. The whole feel of it was very avant-garde, which is something we'd never previously done. For me, the sea and the ocean is so spiritual.

    “I have a friend, Justin Levins, who is a fighter in the UFC, and he's used this as his intro music. It works!”


    Unchain Your Brain (from Glory Road)

    “This is the first of what I'd call my nursery rhyme type of titles. It's a really fast song. I recall Ritchie Blackmore once saying that anyone can write a mid-tempo track. But to do a convincing fast one... that takes talent. We had it as a live opener for ages. This came out in the era when NWOBHM was happening, and it fitted in well. This song was balls to the wall, with no inhibitions, which was what a lot of younger bands were doing.”


    No Easy Way (from Glory Road, 1980)

    “I love this especially because of Colin Towns' keyboard intro. Colin used to come up with ideas that were... well, perhaps not innovative, but certainly very fresh. The one here was a great representation of his trademark approach. There's a real magic about it.


    No Laughing In Heaven (from Double Trouble, 1981)

    “I know this was originally on Future Shock, but this version was recorded at the Reading Festival, and alongside Made In Japan, this is the best live album I have ever been involved with. The song itself is about how I don't want to go to heaven, because I know the sort of people who'll be waiting there, and I want to avoid them!

    “Drummer Leonard Haze has just died. He and I toured together when I put out my Toolbox album in 1991. We used to do this song live, and Lenny agreed with me that he also didn't want to go to heaven when he died. So I know where he is now – and he'll be waiting for me.”


    Men Of War (from Double Trouble, 1981)

    “Another balls to the wall, rock'n'roll song. It's typical of the time, with loads of yelling. The thing about a song like this is that it is carefully crafted in the studio. But once it gets in front of an audience, then it's a case of going flat out. There's no holding back.”


    Fighting Man (from Mr Universe, 1979)

    “This is really the track that launched Gillan. At the time, the Ian Gillan Band had just released Scarabus, but our jazz rock direction had just about run its course. Unbeknown to me, Colin had written this song, including the lyrics. One day I came into Kingsway Studio in London, and Colin was playing Fighting Man on the piano. I loved it, but the rest of the band were really mocking him.

    “I wanted to record this, but knew the other guys would never go for it, because they were laughing at Colin. So, because I didn't have the heart to fire anyone, I decided to leave my own band! Gillan were formed, and off we went.”


    Puget Sound (from Mr Universe, 1979)

    “This is about my amazing journey across America, from New York to Seattle, on a 99 dollar Greyhound Bus trip. I met this girl on the bus, we got on well and let's just say it was a nice journey! She was staying with her aunt for a while, and I was visiting my family. But by coincidence, we met again on the bus on the way back, and did things in reverse – so to speak!”


    Night Ride Out Of Phoenix (from Future Shock, 1981)

    “This was about a true story that happened when I was in Deep Purple. After a show, myself, my girlfriend and the band's road manager decided we'd love to go horse riding. So the road manager contacted a ranch and arranged for us to pick up three horses at midnight. But, in the usual touring style, we went to the hotel bar and totally forgot about the horses. Then at 2am, the road manager suddenly remembered – shit! So, we drove out to the ranch, fully expecting nothing to be there. You know what? There were three horses saddled up and ready for us.

    “We rode out across the Arizona desert, and the view was amazing. On one side were the lights from the city of Phoenix, while on the other was the natural beauty of the desert. It was a truly amazing experience.”


    Trouble (from Double Trouble, 1981)

    “This was an Elvis cover; he'd done it for the King Creole movie. It was also a big hit single for us (Gillan's biggest, reaching number 14 in the UK chart). During our time together, the band did a few covers. But this is my favourite. And whenever we did it live, the fans really went wild. Our version was insane, but worked pretty well.”


    On the Rocks (from Glory Road, 1980)

    “I have to confess I'm not actually sure why I like this song. I was going through a list of what we did when choosing this Top 10, and I got to On The Rocks, and thought that I wanted to include it. There's a special aura about this song. I love the fact that Colin played the flute here. That certainly makes it stand apart from any other Gillan song!”

    Double Trouble est un double avec 1 album studio, Franck !
    Et tu oublies "For Gillan Fans Only" qui est lui-aussi un album studio (certes atypîque).
    Bon j'ai acheté le coffret "Albums Collection": il y manque Gillan (The Japanese Album), mais c'est bonnard

    Je complète un peu wiki :

    - Liam Genockey (drums)

    - For Gillan fans Only : sorti en 80 en parallèle à Glory Road (du coup Edsel nous l'a bien heureusement collé en bonus de ce disque), seulement des enregistrements de GILLAN donc Fool a bien raison sur ce coup Smile

    - C'est Gillan le compositeur principal du groupe, plutôt avec Mc Coy finalement, quand on regarde les crédits...enfin Towns a moins composé dès 1980, je n'avais jamais remarqué... Ca donne pour Colin :

    4 sur Glory Road, dont 3 avec Gillan (5 pour Gillan/McCoy/Torme)
    3 sur Future Shock, tous avec Gillan (5 pour Gillan/McCoy/Torme)
    3 sur Double Trouble (dont un seul titre sans Gillan), sinon c'est le reste du groupe sans Towns, voire souvent Gillan/Mc Coy)
    Retour aux affaires sur Magic où il est compositeur majoritaire après Gillan (et pour le coup c'est le moins bon disque).

    C'est étonnant car aujourd'hui Gillan et Towns semblent se témoigner un très grand respect alors que Mc Coy et IG...euh... comment vous dire... Very Happy

    Sinon bien d'accord avec Franck concernant la qualité de cette période et j'admire totalement le côté original de ce groupe, vu la période c'est fort, surtout avec le succès qu'ils ont eu au UK (c’est dingue mais par exemple Glory Road et Future Shock : 2ème et 3ème des charts).

    C'est très intéressant cette sélection gillanienne de ses titres préférés...d'ailleurs c'est cohérent car il a choisi parmi ceux-là pour sa tournée de 2006 (en 2016 on a eu des titres des 90's/2010's seulement)... je pense lui avoir déjà dit mais on n'a pas vraiment les mêmes favoris à part l'incroyable Fighting Man... quand même M.A.D. ou Born to Kill, c'est du très très costaud, m'enfin!

    Stephen John "Steve" Byrd (1955 – 2 October 2016) was a British guitarist and session musician who has worked with artists including Kim Wilde (from 1982–95), Ian Gillan, ZZebra and many others.

    Initially a self-taught guitarist born in Sheffield, England, Byrd joined the band Zzebra for their second album Panic, after his old friend Tommy Eyre had recommended him for the job.[1] With Zzebra he played the Reading Festival in 1975 and recorded another album, Take It Or Leave It

    In 1978 he replaced Paul Simon in Ian North's band Neo, a new wave band formed in 1977.[2] Neo recorded an album in Ian Gillan's studio, and after Gillan had heard them he hired Byrd and bassist John McCoy for his own band, which was also called Gillan.[3]

    The band recorded their first album Gillan in September 1978. It was not released in the UK but sold well as an import.

    In 1982, Byrd auditioned for pop singer Kim Wilde and became a long-term member of Kim's backing band. With Kim, he co-wrote "Another Step (Closer to You)", "Hey Mister Heartache" and many other songs as well as played on some of her albums. He toured with Kim Wilde until the mid-1990s

    In the 1990s, he was also a member of 4 Bills And A Ben, a band with flexible line-up formed by Johnny Warman which also included Jeff Rich and John Edwards from Status Quo.

    In 2001, he played in 'The Mods' at the Steve Marriott tribute.

    Other acts Byrd toured with were The Buggles, Martha and the Muffins, Billy Ocean, Ruby Turner, Samantha Fox, A Flock of Seagulls, Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Bonnie Tyler, Alec Mansion, Shakin' Stevens, Heartbeat UK and Kim Appleby.[citation needed] He was the MD of the Byrdsongs record label.

    Steve Byrd died of a heart attack in Munich, Germany on 2 October 2016 aged 61

    Concernant For Gillan Fans Only, ce n'est pas un sortie indépendante a Glory Road, c'était un disque inclu avec la première édition de Glory Road, un double pour le prix d'un simple. Du coup, l'avoir en bonus disc de Glory Road respecte l'idée originale !

    Sinon j'adore toute cette période, notamment le tout début, notamment les concerts commençant sur Secret of The Dance, que je trouve encore meilleure qu'unchain Your Brain, plus envoutante. Et je partage avec Gillan son affection pour On The Rocks, quel titre énorme !

    Et pour John, Gillan est toujours aussi en bon terme avec Gers. il faut dire que McCoy lui reproche toujours les problème financiers, alors que Gers n'est sûrement plus sur quelques £ près !

    Oui mais McCoy a fait ça "en rétorsion" contre Gillan dont il estime qu'il a grugé les membres du groupe d'un point de vue financier dans les 80's, alors que ça devait être un split 1/5 chacun. Bref, pas joli joli, en effet !
