Re: Quatermass... Who they?!


You're dreaming big time!
First I have always said Gillan was my fav singer and that in Gillan and BS he screams like a dying pig...so what!?!He mistreated his voice, got surgery done, but he recovered well so that's good.Still his voice is not crystal pure and high-pitched on the Gillan albums.
Marsden and Moody are just fine guitarists, nothing to compare with who Coverdale worked before and after them.
Mc Coy may be better than I say...I don't know cause I'm not a bass player, but Underwood is just Gillan's pal and that's why he got the job in Gillan.He might have been a good 60's drummer but definitly not a good hard rock drummer.Remember Mark Nauseff, well that's what I call a real drummer!

This being my last answer to this post, because once again I'm finding myself in a position where I'm accused of tellin my opinion about certain people, where on the other hand, some other forum members are just constantly putting down Purple members or albums, and yet there, you don't say a thing!
What about those who say Gillan can't sing anymore, S&M being a bad album, ))) being bad,stormbringer, CTTB,...

dP uber alles!

Re: Quatermass... Who they?!


I agree with Purpletemple on this one.

McCoy and Underwood were the weakest links (musically) in the Gillan band. Underwood particularly was very average. McCoy's rumble was certainly distinctive but in comparison to other bass players in the Purple family he's definitely low down the list. The real genius in Gillan was Colin Towns.

Don't agree about Moody/Marsden though. Coverdale has struggled to get the same songwriting partnerships since the M/M days. And Marsden is a superb player. Flashy - no, but beautifully melodic.

That's true that the duet Marsden/Moody worked and still works great.But as individual guitarist, none of em are Blackmore, Vai, Sykes or Vandenberg...(technically and in terms of charisma)
This said Whitesnake is my fav purple related band.Last night I listened to Slip of the night, Ready An Willing and Saints and sinners and still find them all extremelly good albums (even Slip!).

Re: Quatermass... Who they?!


I agree about Colin Towns but McCoy did a large amount of the writing as well and he
is an all round musician,not just a bass player and thats where his credit is most due but I thought you guy's knew that so
I'm once again misunderstood.

I rip on plenty of the guy's that talk trash
about Gillan's current state,I won't mention any names but they know who they are.

Mark Nauseef is a great drummer indeed but
not a great guy afterall
(Gillan said so himself)
and part of being in a band is "fitting in".
Besides,Simon Phillips blows him away for that kind of jazz style drumming any day,
Pete Barnicle was good too.

About S&M I usually stay out of that one cause I enjoyed that album for quite some time.
Stormbringer is another story and I like it as well along with CTTB.
I'm not talking too terribly much about Bananas lately cause I'm too busy jammin'
on it to care about what everyone else thinks.

Like the moniker say's "Gillans micstand"
not "Coverdales leg warmers" emoticon

I obviously lean toward the Gillan side of things but not without efforts to dig
Whitesnake,they just don't float my boat
and I've been in they're presence plenty
including meeting with them and hamming it up with Cozy and Covey.

Am I not entitled to my opinion of others opinions as much as the next person?????? emoticon

I know more about the "original" Quatermass of the early 70s, with Pete Robinson on guitar/vocals;Mock Underwood on drums + John Gustafson



Pete Robinson's a keyboard player, Hammond, etc. The original BSOTF, as well as being written by a Hammond, is a Hammond-fest, no lead guitar.

Re: Quatermass... Who they?!


Yes
3 times actually,once with Whitesnake,
once with MSG and once with ELP.
He was great at keeping the atmosphere fun
backstage at the Whitesanake gig.
He also was very fun to chat with at an
in-store I held for MSG.
The best meeting I had with him though was backstage at an ELP show.
He remembered me and made me feel very comfortable and introduced me to KE and GL
Keith would have otherwise not given me the time of day,I don't know what was up with him but he seemed stuffy that night.
Greg on the other hand was a very nice guy
and he and Cozy had me cracking up with Cozy's jokes and Greg's distiguished
reactions to them,a joyous wonderful man Cozy was.May he R.I.P. emoticon

To all those in favor of big John Gustafson
I suggest you check out a band from the early 70's called Hard Stuff a band that
featured ex members of May Blitz.
Check out May Blitz while your at it.
They made two albums May Blitz and
Second Of May,they were an awesome hard rock
band in the Hendrix vein.
They may be hard to find though. emoticon

I'd take Marsden over any of them - apart from Ritchie of course emoticon
