Re: Still Dreaming of Yngwie With Deep Purple


RS, that's nasty from you! emoticon

But I agree with the majority: it would be a nightmare. Yngwie was a DP fan when he was a kid, but now he'd probably treat DP members with 'hey, who's the real star here' attitude.

And no, DP does not need any more shredding drivel, there's been plenty already.

Yeah, to replace one soulless shredder with even a worse one is hardly a great idea... emoticon

Also it's a total myth that Yngwie sounds like [sign in to see URL] does borrow equipment ideas, such as Strat with scallopped neck, [sign in to see URL].. And his vibrato is excellent and was probably copied from Ritchie (and Jimi) but other than that he doesn't sound anything like Blackmore. Actually, one of the most disappointing aspects of being a Yngwie fan, is the lack of hummable song within a song guitar solos. Blackmore is the king of this and Steve Morse is also great at it. It seems like most of the time with Yngwie it's almost always the same solo. I love Yngwie, but I call it like it is.

 I tend to think that the people who think he sounds like Blackmore have never really listened to either one and just go by the cover of the book.
 I have never heard any resemblance, even when the Widdley One plays Blackmore penned tunes.

 Unfortunately, the whole fabric that made up the DP that I loved is gone. DP to me was a powerful, menacing entity. You had Gillan screaming, Blackmore being Blackmore and Lord rockin his organ while Paicey, quietly and unassuming, looked like an octopuss behind his kit holding all the mayhem together.
 Even when DC and GH joined they still had that powerful, menacing attitude.
 The whole band smiling and laughing just takes away from the DP attitude and it shows most in the music. Even when they rock like on HOP or Bananas, it still sounds forced and unnatural and of course the last piece of the menacing attitude remaining, Gillans screaming, is long gone, in fact that was the first thing I noticed missing when the reunion happened.
 Maybe the Widdlevie's attitude is what might give them a kick in the ass again, if he can just channel his talents and moods into his playing and not just widdle away. But then again, Don is just too happy for that attitude as well and lacks that menacing quality and power in his playing. He's just adequate,instead of blowing you away like JL used to do. This band needs an attitude adjustment. [sign in to see URL]'s nice that they all get along and have fun, but the music is suffering severely. There's no drive or hunger (although Widdlevie could add to the hungry part).

The Mk2 members have admitted that the no-smiling image was conciously made. Of course, from 1972 on and again from the late 1980's on it wasn't an image anymore.

I was glad to see DP become a happy unit again after RB left. They deserved it. But the smiling thing should not have anything to do with music, apart from that if you're happy, you can often play better (depends on the personality of course - just think of RB on TBRO tour...).

When Morse was criticised early on for his playing style not suiting what the critics saw as proper hard rock sound, the apologists said 'but he smiles so much'. Yes, that's a very musical argument. But the fact that SM (and the rest) smiles, does not take away anything from the music as such, either. Perhaps they're too old for that 'pissed-off-is-cool' image (and no, I'm not implying that the smiling thing is as conscious effort as the 'sulky' image of the early 1970s... or am I? emoticon ).

Re: Still Dreaming of Yngwie With Deep Purple


Okay, I ahve to admit it would be interesting to see Yngwie in Deep Purple, but only for one show.

Like some people said above, YM does not play or sound like RB. He can do a RB impression somewhat close (listen to GOB on YN's live album), but the differences in style, sound and touch are still obvious.

 It's not really a matter of pissed to be cool. It's just that Hard Rock has attitude and you need attitude to make people feel it. DP, smiles and all, have lost that attitude. The DP of yore sounded so natural playing hard rock and then switching over to jazz or blues in a heartbeat and back to hard rock. Just look at the changes in Speed King. There are changes in that song from heavy rock to jazz to blues in the solos and naturally back to even harder rock than what they started with and it all flowed so nicely and effortlessly. That's what's missing.
