Re: Morse Purple vs.No Purple


I respect your point but the post referes to an
a-b choice.Morse Purple or No Purple?
I happen to have been listening to Blackmore long enough to form an objective opinion of him
and I don't even believe Deep Purple to be his best work.
I too,prefere Blackmore over Morse but that's hardly the point of my post.
I have educated myself on Ritchie intensely since 1978
taking a serious collector of his recording's approach.
All this and I still have room for plenty of other
talented musician's work to obsorb.
I guess it all depend's on HOW MUCH YOU OBSORB. emoticon

Re: Morse Purple vs.No Purple


Morse Purple is a very exciting part of dP's career.
Hearing fresh material recorded on albums or played Live, witnessing an incredible amount of joy and happiness coming from the stage.Being able to spend a night at the Albert Hall with dP and an orchestra...and so much more.Without a doubt Morse Purple is worth every second of its exzistence.
Blackers remains the greatest guitarist for me, but dP remains the best band, to have both is an honour!

Re: Morse Purple vs.No Purple


Well put
I have no coment cause your right.
I hope nobody here think's I actually prefere Morse to Blackmore.
I simply thrive on Purples ongoing existance
and as soon as I think they should knock it on the head
I will stop buying into them and discontinue my following
of them and retire to their past glories.

It is at that point that I will no longer listen to
anything they currently have to offer at the time.
I seriously doubt that will happen though,considering the
way they've been cooking. emoticon

Re: Morse Purple vs.No Purple


So which would be better,
a) A band that thrives
b) no band at all
If that two are the ONLY choices we have, I'll choose letter A.

Getting pretty tired of the crap from people that refuse to grow with this band just because they used to have a better guitarist.
 
The one that get's me tired and irritated are the people who wants Blackmore to return when all the signs says that he is no longer interested and it's just impossible. There are more than 100 hard rock axemen available out there.

So maybe this can thread can help those people move on so we can live in the reality that he isn't coming back and that is that.
 
I agree with you Blackmore is NOT coming back and he could destroy and even if he wants to return to the band, I DON'T think it's a good idea.

I am of the opinion that there has never been a better lineup without Ian Gillan,any substitute just doesn't cut it for me.

I have NO problem with Gillan, he can carry the band as long as he wants to, he is STILL a premier hard rock vocalist.

This is my stand about Gillan:
Gillan + firstrate bassist + firstrate organist + firstrate drummer + firstrate "hard rock" guitarist = it's STILL 100% Deep Purple to me.

Re: Morse Purple vs.No Purple


In a certain way I liked all incarnations of deep Purple. And although it was hard for me to realise that Jon Lord is no longer in Deep Purple I like a band with Don Airey more than no Deep Purple. And btw the concerts in november sounded great. And also we should not forget it was RB to leave Deep Purple and the fans - if you want to say so - twice - and it was Jon Lord to leave by his own decision. So you can not blame anybody for playing in a band another want does not want to anymore. dd

Re: Morse Purple vs.No Purple


I gotta be honest and say if I'dve been asked this question in late '94 I wouldn'tve hesitated in replying "No Purple". I thought that when I heard that it was definite that Satriani wouldn't be Blackmore's permanent replacement. I even thought this after my first listen of "Purpendicular". However, after hearing "Abandon", I changed my mind. Now after "Bananas', there's no doubt - "Morse Purple" is a better alternative than "No Purple".
After hearing the internet concert thing a few months ago, my sense of loss regarding Jon Lord was somewhat eased...Airey was fine for that show and did a fine job on "Bananas". If the quality keeps up, my vote will stay "Morse/Airey Purple".

Re: Morse Purple vs.No Purple


In a way I'd say no Purple. Why? they are a shawdow of what DP were. A fainted shadow. They have forgotten to grow with the band themselves. Morse has nothing new to offer, and has had nothing new to offer since Purpendicular, which was refreshing. Now they are an (maybe better than) average rock band, but completely without personality, direction, will or feeling. Yes Gillan has personality, but no voice. OK he can do his Bee Gees impersonation, but he fails miserably when trying to scream. Why doesn't he cut those pathetic attempts away (grow with the band, and accept his limits). Paice is lazy, but has the feel, but just goes by the beats, nothing thrilling. I won't comment on Airey, he's never, neither in Rainbow nor with Ozzy been something to write home about, but he fits nicely with the now anonymous D.P.
And then Glover, well he might be the only one of the lot, who still does something refreshing.

I can't point out a guitarist (of today) that I think would be a better choice than Borse, and that's why I thought they should have packed it in after the Concerto tour (2000), when it was evident that Lord would leave, if the touring wasn't cut drastically.

They chose not to, and just coninue their touring, and that's ok with me, their choice, but honestly, they are so far away from everything Purple, that they don't even deserve the moniker Tribute Band.

Maybe they still have a very good studio album in them, though I hardly believe it, at least I do not expect anything refreshing from Morse anymore.

I hated Purpendicular when I first heard it, but learned to love it. I've had mixed feelings for both Abandon and Apefood ever since I heard them, and I still feel that way, when they (extremely rarely) hit the player.

It's "cool" you like it, please continue to do so, but for me it's the end, unless they surprise me drastically in the end of this month. And how can they do that, when Apefood means nothing, nada, zilch to me.
