I heard they had to give up on the project because Ian Robertson had begun to take his role to seriously. Every time a camera got to close he'd smash it with his Strat or pour water (Evian) on the camera man. emoticon

Thanks for the informative comment ByTor,but you sound as if you don't know that this deals with the tragic life story of a producer Blackmore worked with in the early 60's,in what I consider to be a very interesting and very important time in his career.
It might help if you knew some of the countless singles to come out of the recording sessions,showing his talent in a time before he was world famous,some of what I consider my favorite work of his came out of this period.
This is the most focused area I am involved in as a collecter of his music.
(due to rarity)

I don't know about this movie, but I'd be interested to hear more about what Ritchie really got up to during those days. I suspect that a lot of it is myth, but I'd still be intrigued to know the real story. Certianly Ritchie seemed to learn his trade in these Joe Meek Sessions and it must have prepared him well for what was to come later.

Appearently according to Carlo Little,Ritchie and Jimmy Page have never been to keen on duscussing or even admitting much about their association to Meek.It's pretty well covered if you take the time to read through Carlos accounts of the time.

Thanks Paul,it was that very article that had me confused as to what his name was,it's obviously Lain and not Ian. emoticon
I'm wondering why the project was scrapped,or it would seem so anyway. emoticon

That was either an April fools joke or just some internet hoaks. emoticon

I remember that. The one where Ritchie was to write the score and play the villain. That was a hoax.
