Re: Rod Evans and RRHOF


As far as I am concerned, the HOF ceremony lacked dignity as David and Glenn were treated badly. At least they didn't whine on TV like former members of Blondie did when they weren't allowed to play with their current line up. I don't think Don and Steve would have minded performing Burn with Dave and Glenn at all(I could be wrong). When Steve first joined DP, he did the Burn riff in Speed king at least once. If the HOF show was about preserving the dignity of the current line up, than they should only have performed songs they wrote. This was supposed to be a celebration of DP and various former members being inducted into the HOF. To my mind, having Steve and Don working with Dave and Glenn would have made them look very good as members of DP. Oh well, it's all water under the bridge as it didn't happen. Time to look forward to the New DP album, the Jon Lord reissues on vinyl, and anything else that various former members might release.

Jon Lord Tribute concert was different event than RRHOF. It had different meaning.


So what was the "meaning" of the HOF thing? You know as well as me who was inducted and who wasn't.

First - you keep ignoring the fact, the willingness of ALL is necessary for it to happen.


I know. But for me it would be interesting to know who would have been willing and who wouldn't. I don't know, but I have some assumptions. In case of Don Airey I'm almost sure.

quote:

without Jon Lord, performances of "so-called" Mk3 reunited lineup has no point, because it wont be Mk3 reunited (even if Ritchie arrived), it would be MkXYZ "new" lineup.


There have eight band members been inducted. If all inducted members who were there had performed, it would have matched the induction better for me than what happened. To remind you, there weren't any line-ups as such inducted (although the induction showed a clear emphasis on Mk II and III), but individual members.

quote:

Why would Steve and Don perform Burn with David and Glenn? Did you ask them if they were willing to do that under those circumstances which have been there?


No I didn't ask them. And afaik you didn't ask them as well.

quote:

You still consider Steve and Don as "house band"


They were house band there. They performed although not being inducted.

quote:

Please keep on mind, that what DP did at the RRHOF ceremony was about protecting current band


They could have protected themselves as well by completely boycotting the whole thing. And why did they need to protect themselves? Have they been in danger somehow? The guy who would have stolen the show wasn't there, so if they had played with David and Glenn, why should that have been a problem?

Of course I respect it if Morse and Airey don't want to perfom with whomever on whatever occasion. But we don't know. We know about at least one occasion when Airey did perform with Glenn, we don't know whether he would have been willing to do so at the HOF ceremony. And as long as we don't know, I assume that he would have been willing. His career, his attitude, his gentleness speaks for that.

Re:


I honestly think that maybe it ended up on fact, that DP offered "compromise" - current band playing the set and then full band jam with Smoke On The Water and I would presume that DC/GH wanted to do something like Burn or whatever… Then it ended up with this.

Re:


We don't know. Although I don't know why Glenn should have refused to join them in SOTW - he does it at his current tour.

At least Ritchie was present in SOTW - in shape of Steve playing his solo note by note.

Re: Rod Evans and RRHOF


Sadly some of the members of Deep Purple past and present have shown themselves to be sadly lacking as human beings especially when it comes to recognising past members.The current lineup especially has shown complete pettiness at times towards certain past members (we all know who i mean emoticon)Sadly they are not alone in this kind of nonsense but there are other bands who will happily ask past members to guest with them at times Uriah Heep being a great example .

I still assume that this isn't valid for all band members.

I have never met SM but would bet he is a really decent bloke, as is Don Airey who I have met.
This doesn't mean that I know any of them, I can assume that there are some people here who do know them as they have told everyone very clearly what are "facts".

Re:


I dont think that former members of Uriah Heep legally attacked present Uriah Heep band as "the one particular member you are talking about" did. Talking about pettiness from present band members in context of these legal events is hilarious.

You act like - Ritchie has a right to do whatever he wants to do towards Deep Purple and they must accept it and they have to be willing to perform with him no matter how he acts towards them… Ritchie legally attacked the band in 2013!!! Do you really expect them "hurraaaah Ritchie wants to guest with us, welcome his as our friend…"???? No - Ritchie still acts like their enemy and lie about RRHOF ceremony was another example of that!

You are permanently talking about RB only, despite your statement is actually general - and therefore wrong! They invited and played with Jon few times when they crossed their ways, they invited and played with Joe Satriani. You simply have to keep on mind, that IG, RG, SM, DA have nothing to do with DC/GH era in Purple - so there is zero connection between them, and break-up with Ritchie was everything but friendly. We dont see into their relationship - one thing is communicating by mail or phone, other thing is willingness to share the stage. You still blame Gillan for denying RB for guest performance, but he has the same right to say "No, I do not want to do that" as others may have a right "I have no problem with it". Nothing bad probably happened between Don & Ritchie, nothing bad ever happened between Ritchie & Steve (AFAIK they never met). Wrong things happened between Ritchie & IG, between Ritchie & RG and between Ritchie & IP. It´s about their willingness to play with him - and they have full right to say "no". Ritchie has no entitlement to play with them - it´s up to them, not up to him.
