I have a US release which shows the band around the drum kit.  
I see Ian Gillan sitting on something but the picture is too dark to tell what exactly it is.

Yes, yes - I see it now. Page #24 in the 28 page booklet. Thanks.

I think that's why I never noticed the AC30 before.

I've been a Blackmore fan ever since I first heard the Machine Head album. I think it had just been released and I had been playing guitar for about a year at the time. It really influenced my playing & even today I incorporate certain "Blackmore" riffs in my solo's, usually in places where you wouldn't expect to find them. In 1983 I traveled on the road with Ian "Fergie" Ferguson, who was Ritchie's guitar roadie. I didn't realize who he was at the time and kicked myself later when I realized the opportunity I had missed to find out some of the inside scoop on Ritchie's gear. Damn!!!
