IAN GILLAN: 'A Visual Biography' Due In December

Wymer Publishing has set a December 6 release date for "Ian Gillan: A Visual Biography".

Without doubt, Ian Gillan has proven to be one of the greatest and most enduring rock singers of all time. From his early career in sixties pop band EPISODE SIX, through to DEEP PURPLE, as well as a brief period with BLACK SABBATH, he has continued to surprise and delight millions of fans around the world.

Forays into unchartered territory, such as his role in the original "Jesus Christ Superstar", as well as a variety of solo projects, including the jazz-inspired IAN GILLAN BAND, have proven that time and again Ian Gillan is more than just the lead singer with DEEP PURPLE.

This publication plots his career from the early sixties through to the present day in a visual timeline that charts his extraordinary and colorful career.
Digging deep into the archives, we have managed to pull together a vast array of photos and imagery, much of which has never been seen before. This includes many previously unpublished photos from his days with EPISODE SIX and beyond. Offstage and backstage photos from his early career through to DEEP PURPLE and his solo projects are all included, alongside onstage photos capturing Ian doing what he does best.

"A Visual Biography" also includes many rare items of memorabilia, including a full itinerary from the IAN GILLAN BAND's 1977 Japanese tour, plus posters and cuttings that help to document over fifty years as one of rock's most iconic frontmen.
