Re: Post-induction support for current DP


Big J asked those people, who said, they wouldn't follow Deep Purple anymore. So the question was not ment for me. And regarding the "bullshit" thing: Those who sit in glasshouses shouldn't throw stones ...

Re: Post-induction support for current DP


Last time I saw DP live was on the Bananas tour and I have to say, I went just as much so I could see the revamped Thin Lizzy as I did DP. I enjoyed the show but I didn't come out of there all excited about seeing DP as I had in the past.

I was already kind of soured on DP live performances due to the reasons LiTB touched on. NW?! did re-spark an interest but I didn't see them live due to the setlists I saw [sign in to see URL] old tribute to Mk II b.s. I figured they'd release a live album or two so I picked those up and still paid less than I would for a concert ticket.

The shenanigans surrounding the RRHoF has completely soured me [sign in to see URL] it was Payne's or Gillan's fault (he did backpedal in his "open letter"), it was handled shabbily and Ritchie had remarked he considered attending until Payne's heavy handed "No" which also got back pedaled on as well. So yeah, I won't even be buying this new album. I'm sure one of my friends will buy the new album in which I'll just import their copy to my iTunes and leave it at that.

Good question. Perhaps, because I wanted to answer something to your - IMO - inappropriate answer. I didn't know there's a new rule on this board, that it's only allowed to give one's view on the original question or statement, that started the thread emoticon

Hey guys, it was meant for those that indicated they were going to stop supporting the band but anyone can chuck an opinion in - it's not exclusive. emoticon

Re: Post-induction support for current DP


As for me, the induction hasn't really changed my support for the band. I didn't go to the 2009 Glasgow gig, went to the orchestral one in 2011 and didn't bother with the last one in 2013. The reason being that I've become a kind of casual fan of Mk8, not the diehard as I was of earlier line-ups. I'll buy the records, but won't necessarily catch them live. I have found over the last ten years or so that there has been a real improvement in the music scene and sadly there are many other bands who are more of a priority gig-wise for me now than DP.

I've become a fan of some fabulous bands/artists recently - Opeth (who are simply stunning live), Purson (check them out - like a cross between DP Mk1/early Mk2 and Curved Air), King King (great blues rock), Crystal Breed (superb German prog-rock band with similar guitar/keys interplay to Ritchie and Jon), and many more. Some of the other older bands I find more thrilling than current DP too. I never miss an opportunity to see UFO live as they are on great form just now. Conversely to DP, I don't keep up with every UFO album release but I do try to get to every gig. Michael Schenker is on blistering form and I see Temple Of Rock whenever they tour. Foreigner live were a revelation - awesome live band.

Purple family like Glenn and Whitesnake are higher on the gig priority list too, as well as Rainbow of course.

So, all in all, the induction has had little effect on my support. Will I see them again? If time and finances allow, probably yes, and I would almost certainly go to a farewell tour if it was publicised as that. Are they the same vibrant force that Lars described in his speech - no.

I also haven't seen the band live for years. But that has to do with my personal health, I'm not able to stand for more than some minutes without getting an awful pain in my back. On the other hand, music doesn't play the roll in my life, like it did in the early seventies, when I was young. I did go, when Don Airey played near me, and it was fantastic. But I do buy the records. And to be honest: I prefer listening to NW or Rapture over Machine Head. Because they are fresher, I haven't heard them thousands of times.

Re: Post-induction support for current DP


Friedhelm, we have often discussed about DP and will no doubt do so also in the future, but just wanted to let you know I am really sorry for your back [sign in to see URL] what you say, it must be really annoying, and it certainly is more important than who does what in/out of DP. Keep spirits up, even when I sometimes sound harsh!

There were some posters on here who said they wouldn't support DP in future, particularly when the Blackmore camp said Payne had blocked Ritchie from attending.

Do you still feel the same? Would you support DP in future by buying albums and gig tickets?

Just interested now the dust has settled a bit.


The HOF thing was a special occasion which for me has no relevance concerning the question whether I want to see The Touring Band live. They did SOTW with Steve playing Ritchie's solo note by note, probably as a tribute to him. He won't do that at a "usual" live show, and if he did, it wouldn't make much sense.

So for me, nothing has changed because of the HOF thing (except for my hope of seeing them perform with Blackmore one more time having gone lost, but that's not the topic of this thread). I will stay away from their shows as well as I did since 1996.
