well, then I listen to the boots.



It can be an enlightening experience listening to bootlegs of a show you´ve been to years after you attended it. It can be very disappointing as well, but it also can bring back a feeling(if captured well) you didn´t even remember anymore...

Years ago when I didn´t had access to the internet I couldn´t track down bootlegs of the gigs I´ve been to as fast as I can now. So it took me years to hear shows some shows again. Now I go to a show and not long after that I have it on CD, which is incredible actually.

For the numerous club gigs I´ve been at, I´m afraid there´s only my memory that can keep the experiences alive(which can also be a good thing).

People are different and luckily I can get the feeling back although not knowing the setlist. Time doesn't matter for me in that case.

Btw. asking questions like I said to atle doesn't automatically mean that he shall ask me.

But I'm happy to ask you questions! So when was the first time you saw Deep Purple, and what was Big Ian wearing? emoticon

How can we improve the forums?

By keeping subjects in the relevant sections.
That might help. Tst. emoticon

By finnishing the JLTBS crap. Lots of Purple fans avoid this place like a plague because this "joelene morphrodite etc" [sign in to see URL] insults their IQ and good taste (of humour) even if they are not JLT fans at all. emoticon And anyway most JLT fans somehow happen to be Purple fans at the same time! Not to mention it will give the so called Gillan purists enough free time to finally start seriously discussing Gillan's amazing solo career/records (which happens awfuly rare here) emoticon Why not introduce John McCoy-is-cooler-then-Lemmy-Society instead? emoticon

I actually doubt, that there are that many people avoiding the forum because of people telling the truth about the Squeeler. I don't see many Gillan fans avoiding it either, though I've been critisizing him a lot lately.

YES, there are quite a few!

P.S.
Critisizing is one thing (I feel free to post critical views on Gillan, JLT, RB etc, but in a civilized way), living out your Beavis and Butthead alterego is another one!

This is something we have just started to work on, and are trying to eradicate in these forums! emoticon

As pointed out, there are not the facilities to support this, but we do have a bootlegs section where you may be able to sort somrthing out with like-minded traders!

Isn't only a matter of staying out of those few topics. Though I am not particularly fond of JLT, I regularly find it less than amusing, when I read the same over an over again, but I don't think it's a reason for not going to the forum. Unless of course they're JLT fans in search of a forum, and not DP fans who has one, if that's the case then...

Don't get me wrong on this, I just think it's overreacting when some insults towards highly paid pro musicians are not allowed. The Old Rusty Nail, [sign in to see URL]. Gillan, The Sqeeling JLT, The Only one Solo Morse, Lazy Paicey along with Blackmore's Nightmare are all highly paid pro's and must be able to take the flak. The same goes for the fans.
