Gillan - Vengeance 1

Gillan - Vengeance 2

Gillan - Mutually Assured Destruction

I know which guitar player I'd rather watch........however, John McCoy doesn't look too impressed in the second clip.

That 1981 Double Trouble tour was the first hard rock show that my brother came to. In Genk, in Belgium, with Tygers Of Pan Tang [Sykes and all] supporting. Cracking show.....even if I did have to provide protection all night from dickheads either side of us who wanted to squeeze us out of our front of stage spot.
My brother was only around 12 at the time, and Ian Gillan saw this little kid in the front, came over so he was right in front of us and squatted down giving us both a raised fist and cheesy grin. My brothers face was a picture....I'll never forget that night.
My mum and dad sat outside in the car waiting for us and my dad still talks about how my mum was breaking her neck wanting to get inside saying how fantastic it sounded.
Looking back, we had fucking fantastic parents.
