Did Prince accidentally pull down a pair of curtains during a house party one evening? No. Prince painted his entire rented house purple, and daubed the title of his new album up and down the exterior.

Ian Gillan & Friends
Press Release reports: Rock legend Ian Gillan has long lived the epitome of the rock n' roll lifestyle, so it's only fitting that his new album is a career retrospective that takes fans through the incredible journey that has been his career. On Gillan's Inn (in stores April 18th via immergent), he revisits and re-records classic Ian Gillan and Deep Purple songs, as well as his personal career favorites. The DualDisc is loaded with interviews, photos and several versions of "Smoke on the Water," each with a different guitarist.

To build Gillans Inn, Ian enlisted some of the biggest names from the past 30 years of rock history including Ronnie James Dio, Joe Elliot (Def Leppard), Janick Gers (Iron Maiden), Jeff Healy, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Steve Morse, Johnny Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls), Uli John Roth (Scorpions), Joe Satriani and members of Deep Purple. He also brought Nick Blagona (The Police, Bee Gees, Chicago, Rainbow and Deep Purple) in to handle production duties. The result is undeniable fun, a romp through the hazy memories of youth, and a palpable reminder of the place Ian Gillan holds in rock n' roll history.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
