Ian Gillan On Deep Purple Album Progress: We're Useless

(Rock News Desk) Ian Gillan says Deep Purple's "useless" work ethic is the reason why there hasn't yet been a follow-up album to 2005′s Rapture of the Deep and their slow progress has even hampered work on his next solo release.

But the singer seems to be relatively convinced there will be another LP, despite bandmate Roger Glover's recent comments that Purple were joining the ranks of bands who felt a series of EP releases are now a more viable way of releasing recorded work.

Gillan tells BraveWords: "I don't know about that. I don't know much about the business, or the 'industry' as it calls itself now. But it's hard to imagine exactly what you're going to do with a project once you've finished it especially as you're part of a generation that was born with records."

But first there has to be a record; and it seems the band haven't got very far into the process. "We're Useless it's typical Purple," Gillan says. more on this story
