I agree! Except for the last part, it makes a difference.
Look at these examples....... Which would you choose.

This one?
DP Mark IX
Ian Gillan
NOBADI WHO - new guitarist, young energetic will have Gillan grasping for air, very cheap, will always say yes, low cost, song writing inputs and ideas is almost zero!
Roger Glover
Don Airey
Ian Paice

------ or ------

This one?!
DP Mark IX
Ian Gillan
JEFF BECK - new legendary and iconic guitarist, not cheap, but songwriting inputs and ideas will be great!!!
Roger Glover
Don Airey
Ian Paice

Choose!

Re: Mark IX?


What are they going to do? Stick around until they have to wheel Gillan out in a wheelchair so he can hack out a lung? IP's health issues will catch up with him and he will just be a pale shell of himself. Steve will retire because he doesn't want his hand problems to reduce him to what Tommy Bolin was after a hotshot.

I think that they are done after this so-called 'Long Goodbye Tour'. Don and RG are in good enough shape and will continue to do things. Steve will cut way back and play with the Dregs sparingly to keep himself somewhat healthy. What is left of IG's voice will finally give out and I think that he will be the first to go IP will have to decide if he should just dial it back and maybe do his Big Band stuff enough to keep busy, but not enough to cause him to have another stroke or something similar.

Either way, I think that they're done. I'd like to see them on this tour one more time and remember them as the band that I love and not some creaky old fogeys that are hanging on too long.

Again, my answer would be it doesn't matter. SM brought loads of new ideas to the band and they still don't play his stuff.
As long as Gillan can hack and wheeze and forget the words to every song that's all people here want.

Re: Mark IX?


I have to say that I hope there are no further iterations of the band. If one of them, Steve most likley, leaves, it is probably time for them to wrap it up. Which given the name of the current tour sounds like is the plan.

I saw them four time from 1998-2004. Those shows were all excellent. The 1998 tour is easily one of the best concerts I have ever seen.

Then I saw them last year on the tour with Alice Cooper. I won't call it horrible, but there is simply no comparison tot he previous shows I have seen. They were a shadow of their former selves. Wrap it up with a degree of dignity. Its time to be done.

I still think that you keep forgetting that they need "inside" positive chemistry… I think that Simon McBride name mentioned before is quite a good possibility "after" DP - I can imagine IG touring with Don´s band regularly after DP.

I'm not saying it's a good way to do, but look at Phil [sign in to see URL]'s practically wheeled on stage. So yeah, maybe Ian Gillan will do the same.

As for Ian Paice, and for having seen him up close a few months ago (in a very small venue), he still looks and sounds very healthy. Yes, he had health problems, but he's still fit and able.

Again, I'm not saying it would be great to see them tour till they're on their last moment (like Lemmy did), but it might be what they WANT to do...

Re: Mark IX?



Further to my earlier post, the point of formulaic. Why is it assumed if Morse goes a new guitarist is needed ? Carry on without a guitar, let RG play guitar, get a sax player, a flautist, a string ensemble à la ELO, it doesn't matter. The riot inducing performances of the 70's are long since irrelevant. In the 76-84 period DP were overtaken by new wave, NWOBHM, thrash etc. Times changed, they didn't. You probaly know I'm not the biggest IG (of now) fan but his take on CIT with IGB was so, so beautiful. So many paths were open, none were walked down.

Mea culpa. excluded this from my post. The point is in their own projects JL went to orchestras / big bands, RB went to rennaisance minstrels, IG went to jazz rock, IP went to session work with Velvet Underground (!) and RG went to a Butterfly Ball and ensured profits for acid dealers for many years to come.

I never of thought of that! I also remembered that other great bands did it.

When Black Sabbath failed to get Bill Ward, they continue as a trio recording their last album "13" and instead they hired Brad Wilk as guest musician or something, but correct me if I'm wrong, Brad Wilk is "not" officially a member of Black Sabbath only Ozzy, Tony and Geezer is.

The Who continues as a duo of Townshend and Daltrey and recorded "Endless Wire" with guest/hired musicians for the recording.

It's cheaper, but I don't think thats good for DP.
