 emoticon You didnt get one difference which makes this reaction "pointless" - I´m saying that "all DP lineups" are full legitimate Deep Purple, but musically some for me works and others dont. I´m not the one who basically says "no Blackmore no Lord no Deep Purple". I have problem with "this" statement and I´m trying to say, that lineups without Ritchie and lineup without Jon actually can have much more classic Deep Purple identity, than lineup where both of them was.



The current lineup has more classic DP identity than when Jon and Ritchie were there?Utter Nonsense !!
They started the bloody band, they created the classic sound ,how can it possibly have more DP identity when they are not there??
The classic DP sound along with Paiceys drumming required Blackmore on guitar ,SM is a brilliant guitarist but not suited to classic DP, and Jons keyboard work was also crucial to the classic DP sound ,whilst Don does a better Jon copycat than Steve does Ritchie, its still not the same, Don doesn't play with the taste nor fire that Jon did.
Basically you like a band that is obviously heavily influenced by Deep Purple but at the same time very different ,and of course past their best especially the singer!
How can this band be a full legitamate version of Deep Purple when only the drummer remains from the original lineup?
I will say though that Time For Bedlam does sound like classic DP, but then it would since its a rehash of POH emoticon



Current lineup has more DP identity (how I hear and "feel" that) than DP with Ritchie and Jon in particular era! That part "in particular era" is necessary part!




But thats just it ptr, as i said you are not a fan of classic DP, you didn't grow up listening to classic DP ,you are a fan of an offshoot band heavily influenced by DP,they share the name but thats [sign in to see URL] are now like Status Quo,ACDC,Queen or even Lynryd [sign in to see URL] like Robert Plant going out on tour with a group of well known musicians and calling it Led Zeppelin.I mean when David Gilmour and Roger Waters tour they dont call themselves Pink Floyd do they?

Why you think I´m not fan of classic DP? emoticon I´m fan of DP as WHOLE.... Why you think that being a fan of classic DP MUST lead to considering current Purple as something you described??? It doesnt work like that.

Re: My review of Memories in Rock II


They've been my favorite band since 1973. My favorite line ups will always be MKII (the best rock band of all time IMHO), followed by MKI(those first 3 albums were great and have stood the test of time), but all line ups have something to offer. MKIII gave us the great "Burn" followed up with the most disappointing "Stormbringer". MKIV's CTTB the band was full of energy and sounded fresh but drugs wrecked this line up. Foxbat showed that this line up had what it takes, while the Japan 1975 show, with Tommy not up to par, is worth it as Lord and Paice really kick it up a notch. As for the reunion, PS, HOBL, and TBRO are all albums I like. MKII were a bit sloppy live in the 1980's but still enjoyable, while, in 1993, they were great!! Love those shows. MKV was all right but S&M had two of the most boring DP songs of all time imho, LCA and Truth Hurts. The one boot I have of the Satriani line up is a very good show. I wonder how it would have been had he stayed in the band? As for Morse, Purpendicular and Abandon were excellent. Morse was at his best during the Abandon and Concerto tour. After this tour, they should have made an album right away, but, instead, they dropped a lot of new songs and started being a greatest hits band. Lord left and the years from 2002 to 2011 were disappointing to me. Banana's and ROTD aren't all they great but it seems that those 2011 shows with the orchestra energized them. "Now What" and "Infinite" are 2 excellent albums!! As for the live shows nowadays, I only buy them to keep up the collection. They pretty much sound the same and have mostly the same old songs with some new one's tossed in. The days when a song was stretched out are long gone but they are still better than most bands live. For folks that get into this line up, more power to them!! I'm just glad DP are still around and hope they make one more studio album.

Re: My review of Memories in Rock II


Why are we discussing the current Purple in this thread?? Shouldn’t we be discussing the horrible current Rainbow?

About Memories in rock... Heard it all, seen the vids, and I can’t come up with a better word than horrible! Thank God Blackmore isn’t a part of Purple anymore.
