" Ian Gillan] personifies every trait of epic front man coolness." --Metallica's Lars Ulrich

One of "the year's best rock books" --Loudwire

"An entertaining read from start to finish that captures all of the highs and lows of Ian's storied career. . . . It's all covered here with Gillan's trademark humor and panache. Fans of the MK II lineup of Purple are going to want to add this book to their collection, even if just to get Ian's perspective on what can arguably be the most prolific and inventive period of the band's career. Not to mention his perspective on the often volatile relationship with his former guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, as he struggled to work alongside and figure out the thought process and motivations behind the notorious man in black. . . . Ian Gillan is also a master storyteller. He is the true personification of what a rock 'n' roll front man is supposed to be and as a vocalist he stands alone in rock as a true original who bravely carved out his own path right from the onset." --Classic Rock Revisited

In the first US edition of his wildly entertaining autobiography, the Deep Purple singer dishes on the highs and lows of his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame career. Ian Gillan details nonstop partying, groupies, drugs, alcohol, friction with guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, and how everything spiraled out of control, ending the band. He continued solo and with Black Sabbath before ultimately reuniting with Deep Purple. The band is releasing its twentieth album and conducting a farewell tour in 2017.

Ian Gillan is the lead singer of Deep Purple.
