Re: Half a year later...


Hi KB,

All of them, wonderfull tracks IMO, but happen to be misplaced somehow, atleast thats what I think you mean, as I will go out on a major limb, to argue "DLG" as un matchable, by anyone, including themselves, as I sense you don't think it's them, but someone elses style of music?
I know, the funk factor, but it blows away, any funk elemented track in the history of the band, so look upon it, as a growth improvement. emoticon
I understand to some, it doesn't belong, (funk) as I felt that way with mk3 and 4, only much worse.

I know I saw a bass player the other night, who wasn't white, and he rocked the Gillan classics like John McCoy could only dream of doing... nothing wrong with the instrument being in the hands of it's rightfull culture, and still playing rock.
I guess you could call it variety, something life is dull without, and so is Deep Purple.... IMO.

Michael Bradford may be the encouraging one here, but he didn't write any of it, they may have just had his vibe going, because they were in his studio, with him there.
But I also supsect, they met him half way or so, in the area of what he is good at producing, and that would have to induce the funk into it, heavily.

Hmmm... I don't care so much about the "funk factor" (but I admit that I don't like funk). I know that Purple have been doin' some funky stuff before, especially on Fireball. It's just that I think DLG is a weak song- it doesen't go anywhere, and the chorus just makes me blush. It's THAT weak! If funky stuff is what Bradford know how to deal with best, then I hope that he will go back to producing that, leaving Purple alone. Hmmm, well... You know my feelings on Bradford by know emoticon

Unfortunately not for me. "Before Time Began" is the only song I listen to (sometimes). And again it's a slow one I like. It's the same with Bananas and "Walk On".
For me it sounds as if they've forgotten to write powerful hardrock with melody. I'm missing that in the same way as I'm missing a powerful voice. emoticon

Don't be sorry. It was to expect and I can very well live with it. emoticon

a) Not sure what you were getting at, I don't know the guy, have exchanged some warm e-conversation once, but he has dropped of the face of the planet, and has not answered to any inquiries about his input on ROTD, simply because he hasn't answered to anything at all... must be busy, as usual.
ROTD was quick produced, thats all I don't like, it leaves a polish that doesn't last, but the material is fine by me.
I happen to have a preference in this area, that isn't to my liking, nothing more.


b) That is clearly an argument for her... emoticon

"I have just finished listening to Living Loud CD after a while and what amazes me when I compare it with Rapture is that 1)Morse's playing is much more imaginative on Relentless (and I don't count the Randy Rhoads parts), i.e. in Every Moment a Lifetime - his solo is very toucht and calmed down when compared to any solo on Rapture"

same thing with his solo stuff. I guess if more DP fans bothered to listen to Steve Morse Band records, they would see he is an awesome guitar player, a virtuoso and a very emotional player. They would also see that Morse shows less than 50 percent of his capabilities in DP. Personally I feel the rock n roll formula of DP restricts him too much. But it is just a hypothesis.




If Morse shows less than 50 percent of his capabilities in DP, he should leave the band.

If what you call "the rock'n roll formula of DP" restricts him in any way he should just leave.

Personally I don't think that he is restricted in any way- he just don't know how to play hard rock. DP should not change their music just to make him fit in better. They are a classic hard rock band, not a jazzrock band! They try to do what they do best, and if the guitarist can't keep [sign in to see URL], it's time to leave.




Whatever that means emoticon
