None other than Jason Newsted (Metallica), Jon Lord, Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) and Linde Lindstr”m (HIM) supported the two Rock legends. Not only jamming together for the sheer fun of things, this new project has united for a cause - rebuilding and helping the music school in Gyumari, Armenia. The single was a joyful and inspired moment. Iommi and Gillan have now decided to make WhoCares an album for their devoted fans. Classic songs and a lot of rarities and unreleased material on two discs! This is much more than a Gillan solo album or a Deep Purple anthology: this is a real collector's item and must have for every Ian Gillan and Tony Iommi fan. Earmusic.
2009 album from the legendary Rock vocalist. Ian Gillan is renowned both as a member of Deep Purple, as well as leader of Gillan.

It`s with no surprise that all true Ian Gillan connoisseurs will find all these influences on this release. A 100% rock album, One Eye To Morocco will conquer new and old Gillan fans with an impressive collection of songs showing a big variety of moods and colors.

Not only jamming together for the shear fun of things, this new project has united for a cause - rebuilding and helping the music school in Gyumari, Armenia. Both Gillan and Iommi have spent a lot of time in Armenia when touring there and have fallen in love with the country and the people. The nation that was struck by a massive earthquake on December 7, 1988 has been re-built but certain structures of the society have yet to be - one specific example is Gyumari music school. Having recorded two new songs, the intent is one of the best and most considerate actions the rock-scene has ever seen. All of the money raised from the single will be going directly to the fund for re-building the music school never reconstructed since the disaster. They pulled together this new band to really show what support needs to be given in times of such disaster, not only sending wishes and hopes, but also acting upon them!
Impressively, the line-up is one of the most interesting and astounding to come together. A reunion and new power band, there is a lot going on with old musical reconnections, new meetings and overall a mix of some of the top rockers the world has ever seen. Truly giving back to a place they love, this is also a once-in-a-lifetime event for the rest of the world to hear a new brilliant blend of top musicians as well as to support a sincere and selfless idea!
The single contains "Out Of My Mind" (an epic hard rock classic, destined to remain in time as a hard rock milestone), "Holy Water" and a 30-minute documentary that shows Gillan's and Iommi's involvement with the Armenia cause over the years. Also being released is the extremely limited 7' vinyl edition with only 1,000 numbered copies in production, making these the rarest of the rarities. Be sure to experience the coming together of the top rock geniuses and not to miss out on one of the most honest and brilliant rock movements of 2011.

Music Club.
2010 two CD set containing a trio of albums from the Hard Rock vocalist. Naked Thunder, recorded in Olympic Studios and other UK studios in 1990, was the effectively the first to be issued simply under his own name. Co-writtten by guitarist Steve Morris, the album also features drumming legend Simon Phillips. Toolbox was recorded in 1991 in Battery Studios in Willesden, with production by Grammy-nominated Chris Tsangarides, best-known for his work with Judas Priest, Anvil, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Helloween, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Toolbox is regarded as Ian's hardest album, and is his first not to feature a keyboard player. Cherkazoo is a musical that Gillan started with Roger Glover and worked on, on and off, throughout the early 70's, a charming and quirky collection of songs that looks back to the baroque, psychedelic British pop of the late 1960's. Its very existence was once the Holy Grail of Purple/Gillan fans the world over.
Ian Gillan is one of the foremost vocalists of the classic hard rock style of music that first emerged in the 1970s. After fronting Black Sabbath and quitting Deep Purple, he formed his Ian Gillan Band in 1975. Though the Deep Purple influence was never wiped clean, Gillan did make an effort to introduce a broader dimension to his music, and he was at his most adventurous on the follow-up album: Clear Air Turbulence. Displaying great musicianship and clever arrangements of a more eclectic style of music, the album even features no less than five horn players. Some of the material features jazz fusion-influences, and overall the album turned out much more experimental than Gillan s previous work with Deep Purple. In essence, Before The Turbulence contains the original mixes of the Clear Air Turbulence record, and also features two bonus tracks recorded live in Hiroshima, as well as an interview with guitarist Ray Fenwick.
