When he isn't raiding sci-fi conventions, Richard Gillitt is Purpleing - and is seen here leaning on Ian Paice outside the Harrogate Centre on the UK 2002 tour. Despite the crowds at the NEC in 2002, Ian Gillan found time to autograph programmes for Alex Shaw (left) and Andrew Richards (centre). These two suspicious looking characters were spotting lurking outside the Liverpool Empire on the 2002 UK tour, where they gave their names as Vince Chong and
Simon Robinson.

"Plymouth 2002, after we 'bridged the gap' and made it front of stage. Pic by Stathis. Cheers, Tonny Steenhagen. Vitali, Roger, Ronnie, and some other bloke show off their tour passes and stickers. Nice collection. DPDU member Tony Bailey, his twin brother, and Roger Glover, backstage at Deep Purple`s 2001 Melbourne concert.
."Just a quick thought. The photo of Jon Lord and Steve Cole is in fact the last photo of Jon while a member of DP. After the photo was taken, Jon said goodbye to the band on their bus, got into a taxi and drove away from DP." Michael Richards Vitali from Berlin with Jon & Ian at the Tony Ashton Memorial Show, 2001. Recovering just after the awesome Sheffield show in 2002. l-r Vince Chong, Martin Ashberry, Mike Richards, Steve Cole,
and some long-haired hippy. Will they make a dash for the drum kit?
'Are all your family eccentrics?' asked Ian Gillan, presented with a paper model by British Origami Society bigwig Nick Robinson in Sheffield, 2002. 'Fraid so Ian! Stephan Waldhart with Don Airey,

Keith Thompson has emailed to point out that Glenn's show in Liverpool is actually his first in the city since that fateful Deep Purple show back in March 1976. Indeed it's so long since he's been there, that Keith bought Glenn an A-Z to make sure he finds the hall. Sadly they seem to have been sold a dummy, as they ended up in Budapest instead - and sent us a photograph to prove it! Luke and Tim Summers have a family photograph gatecrashed by a bunch of backstage pass wearing hooligans during Deep Purple's 2007 UK tour.
