Henry Vilas wrote:I saw Deep Purple when I was stationed in San Diego, 1968. They opened during Cream's farewell tour. Ian Gillan's mike went out halfway through their set. He then threw it down in disgust and stormed off the stage. Since I was there to see Cream, I didn't mind.
Ian joined the band in '69, but considering it was the 60's fuzzy memory is understandable.
