Who other than Steve Morse?


If Steve Morse turned down the opportunity to join DP, who could they have gotten to replace Blackmore. I've heard Gillan mention Jeff Beck but he turned it down. I can't see that anyway. For starters Jeff Beck would never tour as much as they do, Blackmore has nothing on him when it comes to fighting with lead singers and lately he's just too experimental to fit within the confines of a rock band.

They should have wound the band up there and then.

Nah, they still had to put their kids through college.

Rory Gallagher was still alive when the position was available. Was he still well enough to play 7 months before he died? He'd have been great.

Robin Trower would also have been an excellent choice, and if Ged Peck had not given up rock guitar, they would have been my ideal trio.

Would have been a good trio in 1975 as well! emoticon

I suppose some of Gillan's guitarists could have taken the spot - Steve Morris, Janick Gers. I thought about Trower as he is a Strat player and the right age. What about Brian May? Ronnie Montrose might have worked.

I'm used to Steve Morse now and Purple fans should be grateful, it could've been Malmsteen.

I wouldn't want it to actually happen but it would be interesting to hear what His Royal Chubbiness would have been like in Purple.

Adrian Smith would have made a good addition, though he may have been reluctant to give up his Psycho Motel project. He is good playing heavy melodic guitar, but if the band wanted someone who would be a good at improvising then I would suggest looking elsewhere.

Leslie West is another blinding guitar player, who has the ability.

Some of those guys from the guitar magazines would fill the role brilliantly. They're not famous but they can sure play and since when has purple chosen for popularity
