1. I don't think a new guitarist will change much. They will keep playing more or less similar stuff. But I understand that is what You and most fans are looking for - just hard rock without any experiments and unnecessary changes, resembling Mk2

2. Who said they are to play jazz rock? I think they should try something new, whatever it is.

3. I listen to DP and always will because they play music of high quality. But they are no longer influential in any way for me, as they are not trying to discover new territories, even within rock and roll formula. Who said that 50, 60 year old musicians should stick to what they did 20, 30 years ago? Why should not they try to create something that would push the music genre they are associated with into a new direction?

The album ROTD is great, and makes other veteran bands latest albums sound weak by comparison. emoticon



I'm not slagging the album,but the band's approach to [sign in to see URL] some rangling on my part,I can finally acccept Don and what he brings to the table,and think the album is excellent overall and a step in the right direction.

I have to agree with wrong man,Purple talk about being labeled,then as the tour grows on they cut more and more new material out and replace it with the old standbys,making claims the new stuff doesn't get [sign in to see URL],people who aren't super familiar with newer material are not going to know it as well as the oldies,it was even true with the PS tour,you have to expose the audience to it,which is why bands tour.
ROTD was a good cd,but for the life of me I won't pay to see a stagnant DP,but will always plop my money down to see Steve solo.A new guitar player will not fit the bill,a Blackmore clone will make things even more dull than they already are,but if they continue to mine the back catalog and do nostalgia tours,and it seems a large segment want just that,its what they ought to do.

1. The biggest complaint is Steve's not Blackmorish enough,and Purple cater to that segment,maybe they know best.

2. Heck,the Machine Head tour from the other year was pretty near a sell out,what does that tell you?



1. That is not my complaint! My complaint is that I don't think that Steve knows how to play hard rock'n'roll. He sounds lost! I don't want them to bring in a Blackmore clone, but a hard rock guitarist.

2. They did the MH Tour only in the US because of demands from promoters etc. The US audience don't want to hear anything new so they have to rely on the old stuff to draw a crowd. In Europe they toured the Bananas album- no complete MH here!

Third: I hope that Morse will pursue his solo career so that DP can bring in a real hardrock banjoplayer so they can bring that "DP formula" out to the fans again, and then Morse can make only "innovative, experimental and exciting" records.



I rest my case.

Re: Half a year later...


Rapture is a fabulous record.

I love it from start to finish. Best thing they've done in years, and it still sounds good 6 months later.

I hadn't listened to it for a short while, and when I came back to it, I still loved it.

The band sound together, Don Airey is on fire, Gillan is bang on form, and the songs are well structured, with ideas gelling well to form a tight, cohesive sound.

Quality record.

Uli John Roth would make a good replacement for Morse but I don't think they should be doing it anymore. On the other hand, who cares? THE Deep Purple has been buried dead for so many years now. I guess Purpendicular was their last highlight and it proved to be the best moment to stop their career as Deep Purple. Unfortunately they didn't but true fans aren't blind. You can't fool us, Mk8, no, no, no emoticon



A spirit needs faith in order to carry on, and doesn't need help in being crushed, lack of faith will do that alone, without any guidence from the nay sayers that be.
(faith is always considered blind, by the lookers in... what does that tell you?)

If Purple felt the lack of success, that some seem to think they're breeding, wouldn't they have packed it in by now, they obviously feel like they're succeeding, I know I'd knock it on the head by now, if I was unhappy, or got half the wind some of the lack of respecters are blowing around here, I'd have called it a day, some time ago.emoticon

I see thriving on the negative, and always trying to shed darkness on light, to be counterproductive, since it doesn't do any good, it's just b1tching. emoticon

Hhmm... nice to see it hasn't worn off, but tell us, how do you like the production work, or do you have no feelings at all about it?
