You won't find these bands or artists in your favorized genres. But there are a lot out there, believe me.

Your a strange and unique fan of DP and hard rock, ptr.

About Ritchie: it's clear that Ritchie does not have much impact on you, instead of saying how brilliant he plays the guitar, just like the many hard rock guitarists that he influenced, you begin with character assasination of Ritchie, if you liked nice, goody and kind guitarists then I recommend Phil Keaggy, Bob Hart of Petra, guitarists of Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, etc,. Ian Gillan is 'not' a saint either, he has his shares of bad attitude also. emoticon



Quote from my comment: "on one side, he was absolutely stunning - and in terms of DP career unbeatable...." Nothing more needs to be said! But maybe you expect just neverending praising without any bad words..... which would be insincere from me!

quote:


I'm not gonna be surprised if you don't like Jimi Hendrix, Michael Schenker, Jim Morrison, etc. emoticon


Just about JM - he was very talented singer (with GREAT voice - especially at the time of Morrison Hotel) and great lyricist, but sometimes he behaved like fool (actually like typical alcohol/drug addict) - and sadly for him and whole music genre - toll was the highest one - his own life. I would love to hear follow-up of LA Woman record (as it´s one of their best album)... But actually - I dont think that some of bad moments of his life and career (stories from 68 European Tour with Jefferson Airplane) should be praised (like life of rock boheme), when they are actually embarrasing.... same goes for Miami 69 etc.

quote:


Abou Mark II: Again it seems to me that the classic lineup, doesn't have much impact on you either, it's just my perception about the very short general comment you have on them. emoticon


That´s NOT correct perception. I just made general statement, because I think nothing else need to be said. BTW - please notice that I´m writing about Mark 2a period!!! My negative comments towards RB are completely unrelated with Mk2a (69-73) period, but these negative comments affects my position about Mk2b/c era.... but in this case I reviewed ONLY the classic period - 69-73 era. And for that era, it´s exclusively about
"on one side, he was absolutely stunning - and in terms of DP career unbeatable...." this part of comment!

quote:


Years or decades from now, rock bands and artists will be remembered mostly for their music they left us, not their attitude, it is reserve for books and movies. Most of rock and roll artists have egos, but thats rock and roll.


You still dont get it. Everyone needs to have some sort of "ego" to become successful.... The issue is, when this ego battle inside the band leads to destruction instead of creativity. As I wrote here - you may see only the good positive creative side of Ritchie... fine, but for me, there is dark side of his personality too... and that´s when he brought my favourite band near to absolute destruction. Ritchie is not only creative personality, but also very destructive character (as Jon Lord mentioned - when Ritchie refused ideas of all other members and then was commenting that he was the only one who was bringing the ideas to band). That´s when the ego issue starts to be danger... emoticon It´s like when Roger Waters left the band... and made legal actions against them (when they decided to continue without him) - that´s typical destructive action of epic egoist.



An hour of performing with him could destroy the band, maybe, maybe not. Ian not wanting to play with him is also an ego.

He is not returning to the band, even if Steve Morse left the group. It's just a few minutes performance if he decides to attend. If Ian extended his hand, just like David did with Ritchie, then the healing will begin.

If I was Ritchie, I'm not gonna attend the ceremony, knowing that nobody would talk to me, I'm gonna watch them perform for a long time, would make me look stupid while sitting on a chair, being called for SOTW like I'm just a guest.

Why would Ritchie attend when he is not considered part of the family, but an ex-wife.

Fans don't know who is in the band they are paying to see???I find that hard to believe? How often have you went to a gig where you don't know the names of who you're going to see??I think you do a disservice to the "casual DP fan" and music fans as a whole!they are NOT in general mindless morons who just roll along to any gig to see whoever playing??



To be honest: I don't visit many concerts. But the only ones, where I knew, who would be in the band, were DP concerts. If I go and see another band, I go for the music and not for the people on stage.

So your one of the people who attended the 1980 Bogus Deep Purple concerts. emoticon emoticon

1. For me it ain't a srange concept.

2. "What made you want to find out who was in DP?" Because I'm a fan of this band.

3. "Have to say if I'm going to pay to see a band then i have to like them and know them well enough to pay the kind of money were asked to pay for tickets in my country."
I think, that's a strange concept. I go for the music the band plays. I'm not interested in celebrities or stars.

4. "Maybe you're rich and money is no object?"
Now that would be fine. But as I said, I don't go to many concerts. And most of them are very cheap. For example, the last one cost me 22 Euros. It was Don Airey. And I really didn't know who would be on stage with him. Now you may say, I went because of Don Airey, so I am interested in certain "stars". Yes I am. Because I'm a Deep Purple fan and I will go, if anybody of them plays near me. Because I know, I will have an evening with enjoyable music. For example when I once was on holiday in Italy, I drove from coast to coast to see Don Airey with a DP cover band. By the way: They played for free. Except for the price of fuel it cost me nothing. Said that: Most probably I would have gone 1980 to see the bogus purple. Because of Rod Evans. And maybe it would have been the only time, when I would have been disappointed.

Why is it strange? I do that all the time. The last concert I went to, there were four people in the band and three of them I had never heard of before. Sure I could have looked up their names on the Internet, but what would be the point when I didn't know them from Adam? I'm going to a gig not a trivia contest. All I need to know is that I've heard this band's music and fallen in love with it.

And sure, once you get to know the band you inevitably learn trivia like their names, and that's useful because you can then follow the individuals to other bands, and the individual maybe even becomes more important than the band you discovered them in. But it starts when you discover the BAND, not the individual.

Why a strange concept? If the music touches me, I go to a concert as it is about feeling. When I go to smaller concerts, I often don't know each musician. Also with bigger ones: I had no clue about the current line up of Uriah Heep the few times I saw them. Same for Wishbone Ash - although I like both bands. I also don't really care who will be on stage as Thin Lizzy or Manfred Mann's Earthband in June. It's about music and not necessarily about names. If I like it I'll go again. If not, then not.

Must be just me thats strange then? emoticon
If i heard a band that i really liked who's music touched me enough to make me want to buy a ticket to see them ,then i would want to find out who the band members are.I mean in this day and age thats a really easy thing to do .If its a well known name band like Thin Lizzy or Uriah Heep then i think its only natural to want to know what the lineup is?isnt it?
