Ian Gillan’s backing band for the latest Smoke On The water record attempt at Lyme Regis this weekend!
Join Ian Gillan on Saturday to play Smoke On The Water! The catch? There will be two and a half thousand others also with the same idea. The Guitars On The Beach 2 event is on the beach (der) at Lyme Regis, and sees the crowd attempting to break the world record for the biggest band or something. I can’t really work it out from the web site to be honest, and some of the links are broken, but it does confirm that IG is due to fly over from the US to help direct the Smoke section around 4.00pm. There’s also stuff by ZZTop and others. Anyhow, here’s the link if you fancy a day out (or two days – again the web site is not clear on this, though IG is due on the Saturday). I’ve spoken to Keeley Donovan who says the weather is going to be great, so start knotting those handkerchiefs. And sorry not to have mentioned this before, I just forgot. Tim Summers reminded me.
