Is it possible to track down Rod Evans ?


Hello , just got back to a DP forum ( been away since THS forum closed ) and while listening to Book of Taliesyn yesterday ( i´m a huge fan of DP mk 1 ) i was wondering if finding out Rod Evans is as difficult as we think it might be, i remember some posts on the old forum about someone trying to find out where Rod Evans was, i think that there are a lot of people dying for a Rod Evans interview, i mean we have lots of info on every Purple member, but Evans vaporized since the 1980 incident , i myself would love to have him on THS on a small interview. One other thins i was wondering , since the internet is such a common thing i belive that Rod wouldn´t resist to search "Deep Purple" or "Rod Evans" on any search engine, i mean he must know what´s going on with Purple.
 The thing is , does he want to be found ? And if he doesen´t we should respect it ! But still it would be great to hear something from him !

Rock On

I remember you from the old forum,welcome back Johnny. emoticon
As far as Evans goes,there is a thread I believe in this section a few pages back that deals with this,our resident MrEd lives in northern CA,where Evans is reprted to be working in the medical feild.
There is also a thread called
"the markI advocation syndicate" that would be glad to have your contributions in light of keeping the great thread that it is,thriving.emoticon

Hi Johnny!

Well, that should not be too hard I think.

Try Rodney Evans if Rod doesn't work... emoticon

The last trace of Rod, I think, goes back to 1999. It was Larry Rhino Reinhardt, who apparently contacted him asking if he was interested in joining the new edition of Captain Beyond. Unfortunately he was not interested.
On the other hand, Jon Lord said that he dreamt about getting together all living members of DP for a one-off event. This means that he considered also Rod Evans, so someone from the band's surrounding must have a more or less direct contact to Rod...
And finally - here on forum there are some people who live in California. Go and try to track Rod down and give us an account of what you managed (or failed) to do...

It doesn't mean that at all. Jon's statement was about a "dream", not a "plan". There's a big difference. (It was bad reporting of his words, basically.)

I dream of having Ritchie Blackmore play in my living room but I don't have any direct contact with him.

That would be great if Lord could make his dream come true and have all dP members together on stage.

I too dream I could spend a night with Paice...drumming together emoticon
