DEEP PURPLE Legend IAN GILLAN - Rare Video Surfaces From The 70s, 80s And 90s

This rare video is from a very exciting period for Deep Purple legend Ian Gillan, who was touring the world with his new solo band in 1992. Ian would call his band Repo Depot and the band featured Brett Bloomfield (bass); Ian Gillan (vocals); Leonard Haze (drums); and Dean Howard (guitar). The band even recorded some tracks before Gillan re-joined Deep Purple in 1993. This show was on September 13th, 1992 at the Bucharest Festival, Romania.

In mid-1990, Ian Gillan released his Naked Thunder album and hit the road on a world tour. Check out Ian walking us through life on the road, and on the bands tour bus in Amsterdam in September 1990.

Check out this Gillan Band video play list featuring the songs “Vengeance”, “Sleeping On The Job”, “Trouble”, “New Orleans”, “No Laughing In Heaven” and “M.A.D.”.
