55 years on from the band’s formation, the Deep Purple singer joined forces with his original band mates Gordon Fairminer (lead guitar); Tony Tacon (rhyth guitar); Tony Whitfield (bass guitar) and Keith Roach (drums) to record the self-titled ‘Ian Gillan & The Javelins’.

Paying tribute to music legends such as Chuck Berry, The Drifters, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Buddy Holly and Bo Diddley, the 16-track album was recorded at the Chameleon Studios in Hamburg over just five days.

Featuring Ian’s Deep Purple bandmate Don Airey as special guest on piano, Ian Gillan & The Javelins took a back to basics approach, shunning new technology and only allowing ‘instruments, microphones, lyrics sheets and memories’ in the studio.
