31 Gut ReactionFrom the Ian Gillan album Naked Thunder
I was having breakfast, whilst going through my mail. Amongst the junk was an innocuous brown envelope, so overwhelmingly wrapped in Sellotape that I couldn't breach its defences. Consequently, I binned it with all the other trash.
Later that morning, I was playing pool and writing lyrics. Suddenly this backing track blasted out from the speakers. I turned to my mate Squiffy and said, 'what's this?'
'Remember that brown envelope you threw away? Well, there was a cassette inside, I retrieved it and this is it.' There was a note as well, from Steve Morris. There were four tracks on that cassette and three of them including 'Gut Reaction' ended up being on the album 'Naked Thunder'...My first effort since being fired from Deep Purple, in '89 I believe. I have worked with Steve Morris on many projects since then, we are good friends and still have a strong working relationship.
These days I open every envelope and listen to everything that is sent to me.
Gut Reaction(Gillan, Morris)
I feel so dirty
But wait a minute babe
I can't see your burning eyes
I've got no pity
So what's the matter babe?
Can you see my burning eyes
