ritchie statement in new bn cd


“When we first started this Renaissance musical journey 20 years ago, it began in the most unlikely of places. A darkened recording studio, in front of a raging fireplace with mountains of snow outside and a band of rockers doing their backing tracks for a completely different CD in a completely different genre. Yet, there we were, gazing out that window or into that fire, playing the acoustic guitar and writing lyrics; while the rest of them existed in their world, we were the only inhabitants in ours. Inspired by all things from another century we never truly felt at home in this one. Not until we created our own musical escape that helped us co-exist. Allowed us to dress as our spirits wanted, portray the dreams and visions we imagined within the realms of music, which had no boundaries. We were free. Each song took us down another pathway through the wilderness…fed our hungry souls. We knew we were alone there, but we were at home and comfortable. And then…one day…someone heard our music in the darkness. They asked us if we wanted to share the music with the rest of the world. We thought about it for a long time, it was a whole new path. We had melded together music from eras gone past with lyrics of modern day faerie tales, creating a new genre. We weren’t sure that anyone else would be interested. Besides sharing this side with the world exposed us deeply. Left us open and incredibly vulnerable. But we decided if even 1 other lost person felt their home within our songs, then it would be worth it. It was never for popularity, for radio play, or for money. It wasn’t about filling seats at concerts. It was strictly what our hearts called for. The songs flowed out of us and now we find ourselves looking back 20 years later over so many CDs, so many DVDs and so many fans worldwide. To perform in a 12th century castle courtyard with the moon rising above you, singing songs you created with thousands of people, many of whom are dressed up in garb…if you experience something like that once in your life, count yourself blessed. We have been lucky enough to experience that each time we perform. And it is pure magic. Candice Obviously our music will not be played in commercial radio or in the latest dance clubs. We like to think that our music comes from a place where music is more sacred, organic, fresh, green and woody, communal, not processed. Renaissance mock rock and folk textures, imagination not just regurgitating the past for the purists but living it and feeling the pain and passion of the day. Transcending the mundane to the peaceful living in a fairy-tale existence, pondering the mysteries of life and death. Pleasure not pressure.”

It makes it all sound like such a romantic tale of the wandering minstrel doesn't it just! All carefully constructed and written to evoke sentiment etc etc. The only bit that's missing is the strap-line..............

"Please Buy into our fantasy world",

because it will help our CD and ticket sales oh and there's merchandise available too.

It touching stuff but undoubtedly just complete and utter marketing b*llocks!

it has to be said BBS Ritchie has hardly been short of money either at the start of BN or now. hence there's some truth to what he says.

True, a guy who have sold way over 100 million albums with Purple and Rainbow alone can't be poor exactly..

Imagine the money just from radio play.

No way he have ever been short of cash any time since 1970 or so.

Jon, please don't be mad again but as mentioned in the previous thread this must be comment #1425 of you nagging about Ritchie's financial gains.

Re: ritchie statement in new bn cd


Ok guys I tell you what ..........

I'll be like you all are...........
I believe every word Blackmore wrote in that piece and I agree hes sooooo fantastic in every way.......
Is everyone happy now?!

Back in the real world. I said nothing whatsoever about Blackmore needing money or about whether he did or didn't make money on this or on anything else at all.

In common with all artists his presentation is designed to encourage and foster certain beliefs about the product and to create certain images for the listener or [sign in to see URL] is the entertainment business after all..... so it's supposed to be fantasy that they create.

So like it or not this lot is just another example of the quality marketing bullsh1t that's employed to encourage the fans. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, just saying that what it actually is. It boils down to the same thing which I said originally

"Please Buy into our fantasy world",

So whats wrong with that?

Gatts, no disrespect intended but I've not mentioned financial gain here at all.

I know money makes the world go round.
But to me it isn't necessary to mention with every post concerning Blackmore that he's doing it for the money.

Deep Purple is doing it for the money
Justin Pieper does it for the money
and so on

Re:


romantic statement - I bet someone wrote it for him emoticon emoticon

I really don't get why people go on debating about whether they do it for the money or not. No one does this for free. Simple as that. It's fair to say that some acts are more money driven than others, but when it all comes down to it; if there wasn't money to be made, INSERT NAME HERE, would cease to exsist.

Well, obviously he isn't starving, but having sold millions of albums is no guarantee that you're "rich". Many seemingly successful artists don't see much money because they are screwed by the manager or record company. And sometimes the money they do get disappears due to poor investments, large expenses etc.
