From Highway Star To Political Thrillers

It used to be said that all comedians are frustrated rock musicians. But no one ever said successful rock musicians hope to become political thriller writers. (No, they go on to write children's books or they become radio DJs.)

Arun Verma, who's recently put up some excellent advice for entrepreneurs, sent me this link about England's newest novelist: one of Rock's greatest voices, Ian Gillan.

Check out Ian Gillan's website. (Interesting that he should bemoan the death of the gatefold LP cover on his site. I hate CDs for that reason alone.)

I'm not such a fan of CDs myself and not just because, suddenly, my turn-table has become redundant. Also, CDs have that clinically clean sound that take away from the experience, for me at leat.

Ghost, I read somewhere that CD recordings have actually deteriorated over the last 2 decades. No wonder, just yesterday, Bob Dylan called all modern recordings "atrocious".
