Whos happy?


 I was thinking the other day. I see a lot of posts from people who say that even though Steve Morse may not be the best pick to replace Blackmore, they are happy that the band is still together and thankful to Steve for filling in the shoes. Fair enough I say.
 I remember having the same feeling when JLSqueely One joined the Purple ranks many years ago. I was happy that DP were staying together. I can remember reading KERRANG's every issue at the time to see how the search for a new singer was going. It was taking a long time and when they finally decided on TSO, I thought "great..now get on with it".
 Most folks here don't like S&M because it reminded them of Rainbow (of course, when you still have the main protagonist for RBR and DP still in the band, he will play off the musicians that are there.) Now you have 1/2 of Rainbows supporting cast as opposed to 4/5's DP supporting cast, it will lean towards a RBR sound.
 It wasn't that much different to what DP had been leaning towards to begin with.
 If it hadn't been for the JLS lineup, DP may have called it a day back then and we wouldn't even have had TBRO, or MK-Morse.
 Just a thought for all of those who put down S&M so much and yet sing the praises of this lineup for keeping it together.
Disclaimer.
This was written in no way as a support for JLS as I'm not much of a fan of his anyway. It does however, in every way, reflect what I was thinking here on a Friday afternoon, after lunch, but quite a bit before tea time and certainly way before supper.

I see purple for seeing Gillan, Glover and Paicy mainly. However I quite enjoy Morse´s widdly-wo and Airey´s playing as well, even if it´s worlds from Blackers and Lord.

What I don´t get from Purple I get from Blackmore´s Night and vice versa.

Hey Brian
most people here don't mind Steve Morse a bit.
What do you mean half Rainbow there is five guy's
in the band and to get half you would have to cut one guy in half emoticon
There are only two existing memebers of Rainbow in Deep Purple today but of course you already knew that I'm just trying to bust your chop's. emoticon
