Dear Friends

DF 42 - Gillan's Inn Tour !!!

June 2006

Dear Friends,

What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening
What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening

Oyez! Oyez!!!!! You read it here first.!!!

Gillan's Inn is taking to the road. This has become a pissabolity only because of the goodwill and mighty efforts of many parties - and that's exactly what we're going to have…many parties!!!

I have got some time off - for bad behaviour - from the Deep Purple 'Rapture…' tour and so it has been deemed - in the flush of life a bit of deeming is good for the soul - on this very day, or yesterday as it happens - well 'happened' would be more correct I suppose - no it's not a supposition, it's a reality, as our great leader would have it. Yes, in fact the deeming took place yesterday on midsummer's day in Tromso (pronounced Troomsa) Way oop North in the Arctic Circle (pronounced Soicle in parts of NYC and probably parts of New Joisy too, I know, I know!!! I'm getting there; but I'm not am I {rhet}).

In mid-deem I spotted a Spare Bank on the street corner, so I took it along with me as a gift for Mr. Paice. However there was some trouble checking it on to the plane so I eventually took it along as hand luggage. Now I'm having some regrets because The Bank of Paice declined my offer as it was '…doing very well thank you, and establishing a mood of consolidation for the next year or two' and now my hotel room in Bodo (pronounced Buddha), where we are performing tonight - in Buddha that is, not my hotel room - is full of confused tellers, and there's only one bathroom.

Now, where was I? Ah yea Troomsa - as it is pronounced, but we've been there haven't we? Well I have but you probably haven't. Anyway, as I was saying before I so rudely interrupted myself, I was there yesterday, or some time earlier by the time you read this and here are the confirmed dates for my little North American Tour.

More information (and probably some more dates) soon, but I wanted to let Caramba readers know first, and unwittingly I have given you a foresight of my epitaph…

'Here lies I.G. He finally came to a conclusion!'

Roll up, roll up!!! Get yer tickets 'ere!!!! There will be a link to Caramba for tickets - I can't wait to see you all on the road this hot summer!!!! I THANK YO!!!!

Cheers for now

Ian Gillan
