Understood. However, it brings up a question. To be realistic, singing DP tunes in your 70's is no easy feat. If my theory of Alice is right, and he is double tracking, would it be acceptable for DP to do it as well? Wouldn't accept it when they were in their youth, but now, why not?

I mean, Alice showed me that ensuring a good show is sometimes more important than authenticity.... after a certain age.

In case of DP only 100% live show. I accepted that in some sort of way in case of Roger Waters The Wall Show - which was more like theatre show with live band, but in case of DP? No, unacceptable suggestion.

I agree with this view, but what happens when the vocals are clearly not acceptable, for example the current shows in the US?

Agree with you.

- Last point, Edgar Winters was a nice surprise. I never heard of the band before, but I recognized some songs. While not my kind of rock music, the old man sang incredibly well, especially for his age. He even did the guitar/vocal duo, and not badly... was it to show up Gillan maybe?




Edgar was doing this kind of thing before Gillan was even in Purple,and the guitar/vocal "duel" between Blackmore and Gillan was "inspired" by Edgar Winter and White Trash's "Roadwork" LP. I was surprised Winter still had as much range as he does. Having seen the Purple and Cooper, I was really looking forward to Winter's set, and I wasn't disappointed.

To be honest, painful as it is to say this, Purple probably was the weakest of the three. Gillan was not doing well, and it drug the set down a bit. The instrumental part was good as ever, depending on one's view of the current lineup. That being said, I found myself trying to dislike Purple's set, when I pretty well know what to expect from them live. They dropped "the Surprising", but then, I don't think Gillan could have done it much justice that night, anyway. And, it was great to "see" they guys again, as always.

Minor quibbles aside, I had an AMAZING time! I've wanted to see Edgar Winter for eons, and he didn't disappoint. Still has a great voice for a guy his age,much of his range still intact. I just saw Alice in November, and his set is always a lot of fun. Nita,the girl Alice has on guitar, kept lobbing her pics into the audience. She managed to lob one 13 rows back,bounce off the guy behind me and land in my buddy's empty seat,so I ended up with it. Steve could only manage 5 rows with heavy gauge [sign in to see URL] The crowd was into Purple, and sadly, adding Pictures of Home was probably a good idea, it went down well. A bunch of people sang along to Time For Bedlam, though, at least from where I was,so........

Would I go see them again,after this? Probably. The thing is, I can't help suspect that Big Ian's problem's at this stage are more down to a lack of endurance for long slogs than anything else. Saw him two years ago, totally different performance for the better. I think they would be better suited to do a handful of festival dates and pick a few weekends like the Frankie Valli's or Tony Bennett's(who's still working at age 90). I don't see any need to "quit",but in the future,they'll have to pick their spots.
