    I love this guys playing.

    I'm not a fan of Ritchie Blackmore, the human being.

    He's been a bit of a difficult person to work with.

    Candice must turn the cheek very often.

    Anyway, to say that Blackmore is VERY influential, is an understatement.

    He's had a big impact on me, as well as, many, many other musicians.

    I'm going to see him in June. Going on my own - rather than persuade mates who are not as big fans as me to go along, and then feel personally responsible if they don't enjoy the gig or feel he's past it!

    I have the DVD of last year's show and it does lack the drive and energy of past times.

    First gig I ever attended was Rainbow in 1981 so my liking for Ritchie goes way back.

    I did it by playing 33 1/3rd albums at 16 rpm! Half speed and down an octave but it made working out speedy passages a lot easier.

    I didn't watch all the videos, but, Ritchie is supposedly working on a new album, w/ the last tour's line-up. I wish he'd get Daisley, Kerslake & Airey, then get a kick ass vocalist...

    Leave the wife at home...

    Depending on how old/young they were it would either be "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" or "In A Gadda Da Vida"

    In all honesty, I never really heard of Deep Purple until I saw Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas and the River Bottom Nightmare Band.







    ...for fans that would like to go deep, this:
