Smoke This! The Warblings, Rants, Philosophies, and Musings from the Singer of Deep Purple, is a feast of information, pontifications, and visual representation of legendary Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan that takes you on a fascinating journey through the heyday of rock n' roll and lends uncensored insight into those halcyon days. With more than 200 photos documenting Ian's travels and travails, Smoke This! is a visual and educational treat for old and new Ian Gillan, Deep Purple, and rock n'roll fans alike. It's a gorgeous coffee table book splashed in color and awash in stories about Deep Purple, life on the road, songwriting, and the day to day life of a rock star. Ian also includes the lyrics to his songs including classics like Smoke on the Water, Perfect Strangers, No laughing in Heaven, Trashed and more.
