Re: Morse Can't Play Perfect Strangers


I think Morse overplays on PS. The song is built to be a mystic, powerful tune. The whammy stuff and heavy distortion makes the song disintergrate in some way.

Still, it's a good song, just a little less so... emoticon

Taste? I've got loads of it. emoticon

The chugging version oozes class and brilliance. A masterstroke.



Please go ahead and like it but he should not have destroyed a DP classic like that. All the majesty of the track is gone.


Don't know where you get that from. He hasn't at all "destroyed" it. You just don't like it. Simple as that.

Far from "destroying" the track, I agree with ptr who said:

"Now, seriously! I love that sound, he completely "reinvented" that song, bring new life for it, and yes, for me he plays that song 1000000 times better than Ritchie EVER played!"

And Apolllo who said:

"I also really like this version. I think were Morse sound the worst is when he tries to copy Blackmore note for note. I think he adapted this song perfectly, it suits his playing and for me is in the spirit of the song, so it fit great..."

And the "majesty" of the track triple quadrupled! Or ten times more than it was. emoticon

As ptr says, he brought new life to the song. He didn't "destroy" it at all and it's factually incorrect to say so. The only "fact" is that you simply don't like it, simple as that - nothing more, nothing less.

Re: Morse Can't Play Perfect Strangers


With a dubious thread title like that, it's tempting to answer ala pantomime style...

Crowd: "Oh yes he can..."

Guy on stage: "Oh no he can't..."

Crowd: "Oh yes he can..." emoticon emoticon

Re: Morse Can't Play Perfect Strangers


Sorry mate, but adding (tasteless) guitar noise to a classic song otherwise performed as before isn't exactly "reinventing". emoticon

You're the lucky one here though: no amount of dislike from me or any other mortal will make him change the way he plays it!

That's just it. It isn't "tasteless". And it's factually incorrect to say it is. The plain simple truth is you don't like it - nothing more, nothing less.

I love it and yes he has "reinvented" it. And it's factually correct to say so, cos he has changed it. You just don't happen to like - and it doesn't extend beyond that.

I prefer it and find it a big improvement on the studio version which was absolutely crying out for soemthing else to be done with it live. I love it. It's very very VERY Purple. A master stroke.

Hey Rezi, you and I must be the local pantomime act: oh yes it is, oh no it isn't. emoticon





[...cue for the thread to now go off topic with stories of the pantomime act being a current line up of a well known band, widdlefests, etc. Oh well...]

No it isn't. The song is the same, the chord progression is the same, the lyrics are the same. Just adding extra noise from one instrument isn't reinventing a song.

As for "factual", it is the wrong level of discussion here anyway. Morse's guitar on the track is tasteless, period! emoticon

Fully agree on the "yes - no -yes - no" thing!

Re: Morse Can't Play Perfect Strangers


I think Morse has toned his whammy down a bit over the last few years on Perfect Strangers. It used to annoy me as well on that song, especially during the time before Jon Lord retired and wasn't as loud within the context of the band because he was using the Leslie sound instead. Morse turned up his guitar as evident on the Made in Japan 2000, listen to how powerful he is on that. But for as much as I miss Jon Lord's influence on that live album, I like the power of the guitar on that live album. The whammy was too much on PS though. However, it's not as loud recently. I like the sound on the Rapture of the Deep special live CD, where Airy adds more of a synth sound to counter Morse's guitar... I think Airy and Morse fit together like Lord and Blackmore did. PS is much better performed now, in my opinion.
