Perhaps a little silly but...


how would you react if you heard on the news that Blackers or Lord died of whatever reason.

I thought about it myself after I heard that Robert Palmer died. I also remember that I was really upset about the death of John Bonham back in 85. Lately I realised that there is a day coming that I will hear the same tragic news that Ritche Blackmore has died.... I stated earlier before on other topics that this man changed my life.

What would I do? Cry or just feel empty and numb? Will I be playing all of his best solo's over and over again? To be true, I do not know and that is frightening me!

How would you guys and girls react?

Hi Kick,
Well for starters, the British press would not announce the death of a Purple member. As far as they are concerned the whole band has been dead for years.
We would no doubt hear the bad news from this forum or other sites and I for one would be very upset(as I was when I heard on the radio about Cozy's car crash).
It would not change my life because I am a strong believer that things happen and you must move on. I cannot understand why people mourn for others that they have only dreamed about knowing and never really met. But I guess that is just me, and some people will no doubt feel that they have just lost their nearest & dearest and will never be the same again. Each to their own I suppose.

Unchained, Thanks for reacting. I watched my topic for the last half hour and all I noticed were views but no replies...
Perhaps the topic is a bit scary and should I ask to close it.

No leave it on here.
Someone else will be morbid enough to give you some replies.

I have wondered it myself a few times since hearing the news of Tommy Bolins death on that fateful Dec day when I came home from school and my Dad told me he had heard that one of the guitarists from Deep Purple had died. He obviously didn't remember which one because he wasn't paying that much attention to it and it wasn't until later that I watched every news broadcast to finally find out it was Tommy Bolin. Still sad, but my worst fear was that it was Blackmore. I'm getting a bit wet under the eyes right now.

hmmm, i remem starting a similar post on the old THS forum. It will be a shame that there wont be as many millions of tribute programs on the TV as there was for Mercury. But i'll be pretty cut up when blackers dies he's the man.

It would be awful, but they would live on through all of us because of the music.

By the way, this is not a silly posting because it something that we will all have to face one day.

I die myself a bit inside every time I think of losing IG.

It'd be a helluva loss, but let's face it - at their ages it could hardly be deemed a surprise or unexpected. It'd be a sad thing of course, but as was pointed out, and like all musicians - and artists of any ilk, for that matter - they'll live on indefinitely through their musical legacy that they've left us.

I will feel really, really sad when they die. I usually don't become that sad when celeberites die, but it's of course different with Lord and Blackers. But luckily they aren't dead yet so let's don't take out the sadness of tomorrow today, people!!
