IAN GILLAN BAND – LIVE AT THE RAINBOW 1977
Guitarist RAY FENWICK recalls: “Touring with The IAN GILLAN BAND in the 70s was a wild affair, both on and off stage.. In the best traditions of Rock n Roll we courted our fair share of controversy, but come showtime we turned into a tight professional outfit, performing our own unique brand of rock music. It was on 14th May 1977, in front of a full house at The Rainbow, Theatre, LONDON we were promoting the ‘Clear Air Turbulence’ album. Chris Blackwell the label owner was there that night checking out his investment… What is presented on this DVD is an important chapter of an essential British Rock performer, whose successes have now spanned four decades.”
