I urge you to listen to the last 10 minutes of California Jam with the picture off. Ritchie sounds crap (technical term emoticon ).

Blackmore has a certain visual appeal that Morse doesn't, but having consistently musical noises come out of his speakers would be a plus...

Ritchie doesn,t sound crap, in fact I think during those few minutes he sounds remarkably like Pete Townsend. emoticon
As for Visual. Thats the difference between watching a performer and watching a player.
Wouldn,t you pay extra to go and see something more visually entertaining Dash? emoticon

Not if the music suffered. No matter who the flute player was emoticon

I've never stood and watched a "guitar smash". I can imagine that in the atmosphere of the concert it can add a lot of drama... but I dunno, it seems more like a waste of 10 minutes when you could have got another song or a *real* solo.

Personally I find the Cal Jam ending very entertaining, but(and that one´s quite a "but") I wouldn´t have liked to be in the front row then(and usally I prefer to stand right up front), let alone beeing in the front row at the Rock Palast gig in 1977! emoticon

Hey Brian have you ever seen an actuall guitar duel
with two very good player's.
Ritchie and Steve on stage together doing something like that would be very interesting,cause they have
different styles and different stage presance,
and I think that's what it's down to.

Ritchie one time when they had the Rod's opening for them
did a really funny thing after Dio's cousin smashed
his axe Ritchie did the unpredictable act of,
just as he was ready to smash the strat he stopped,went
to the foot of the stage and dropped it down to a fan in
the front row.Absolutely tasty thing to do.

When I saw Van Hairlen on the 5150 tour
he and Sammy Haghair dueled and I !@#$ you not
Sammy blew him away but Edward's solo spot was a different story alltogether.


 Another friend of mine used to play in a band on L.I. (Brainchild) at the time of Rainbow rehearsing for the DTE tour. He discovered through his bands keyboard player, Brian Moran, that RBR were at SRS studios rehearsing. I went out to LI with my buddy one night and stood on the control room and watched rainbow rehearse. It must have been some kind of open mic night because there were all of these local guitarists who showed up and RB let them all have a jam with him and the band. They all gave thier best chops and some were very good, but there was no doubting who was the master of the run.

Why won't you be left alone there? Fear? Ha, ha, ha...
 emoticon As a so-called DP-Fan you should finally stop seeing Blackmore as a psycho. Or you're not REALLY DP-Fan! Finally you're not a child anymore! emoticon
Ooops. Sounding like my mother... emoticon

If you wanna have your head smashed by a guitar, that´s your choice. I want to go home or to a place to sleep comfortable after attending a concert, and not to the hospital or even to the cemetery. Get my point? Seeing Blackmore in concert in the seventies wasn´t only a stunnnig experience, it was really dangerous as well!
