Re: Gillans obsession with Blackmore


What I'm sure about is the chemical mix of Mk2 was highly volitile (in the latter stages anyway). Isn't Mr Blackmore a spent force now, why would we want him back? He's been put out to pasture by his woman, he only plays his guitar for Goths.

Yes..and I'd be willin to say that if RB decided to show up on Purples doorstep, Smiley would be given the axe in a heartbeat.

Re: Gillans obsession with Blackmore


 I think Blackmore is missed by the fans but I meant the band misses him, and yes the volatility was there and would be there today if Ritchie was still there ( bring Jon back ) but it is that same volatility that made Purple what it was. Blackmore was the catalyst that ignited the fire. They say that the band is much happier now without Blackmore than with him, but that unhappiness, for me, made Purple a better band. Blackmore's presence allowed for the musical competition within the group that made Purple rock.

Re: Gillans obsession with Blackmore


There was a televised Dp concert I saw in the '70's (might have been Don Kirshner or something) where Ian Gillan missed a high note (admittedly, back then it wasn't too common), and he looked over at Blackmore apologetically. When there was a live song on Kirshner, from Mach III in 1974, I saw Coverdale do the same thing to Ritchie (of course, Coverdale probably had to do that a bit more than Ian). It reminded me of the incredible "After Hours" video where, when Ozzy Osbourne misses the high notes in the M8 to "ICrazy Train", he looks over at Rhoads with a similarly pained expression. I get the feeling that Iommi, Blackmore, and Rhoads were recognized as such strict, highly advanced musicians that their singers always felt that they had to keep giving 100% musically all the time.

There's a lot of truth in this, but the problem here is that they've stated the band wouldn't have survived another year of RB participation because it was going downhill too much within the band.
So up to a certain degree some tensions might push a band forward somehow and are a motivating factor but as it seems they've already been beyond the border.

Not that I dislike the thought, but I dare to doubt that, because this decision is up to certain people and not to our desires.

True. I LIKE Steve Morse's playing, and maybe I've been damned unfair not checking out anything other than the Blackmore DP releases. I keep hearing "Purpendicular" is VERY good, with alot of guitar and keyboard shredding. Still, I resisted checking out the Bolin material because of my Blackmore fixation (he's what kept me listening to DP even on some of their more mediocre overall material), and for now I remain undecided in regard to Morse-Purple.
