Re: Forum interview with Nick Simper


Hi Nick,

Do you still feel concern-more or less- about the current Purple releases and general work?

Have you bought or received any "new" releases, such as "Bananas" or the "Listen, learn read on" box or the remaster serie (mark I,II,III) or some of the Sonic Zoom releases?

I wish you had release more albums, your work with dP and Warhorse is [sign in to see URL] wonderful it must be to be part of such a great band-musically speaking, as I have no idea of the REAL inside atmosphere.

Cheers

Nick,

If DP MK1 was brought together to play one song, what song would you most want to play?

Re: Forum interview with Nick Simper


Hi Nick, thanks for this opportunity (and thanks 'englishrob' for arranging this)!

1. With many outstanding bands (musically) being almost ignored in favor of the pre-fab 'packaged' bands currently being spotlighted by the media, what do you think of the current state of health of the world's music scene? If not favorable, do you think the 'tide will ever turn' back to media support for the best groups musically, instead of the current 'popular', 'chart-topping' acts?

2. Are you open to hearing new original material that might appeal to you and -- if so -- and the 'right' new, original music were presented to you, would you consider being a part of it?

Thank you once again -- and best of luck to you, always!!!!

:-)

Re: Forum interview with Nick Simper


Nick

On leaving Purple you reportedly took a lump sum in lieu of future royalties. Was there ever a chance to re-negotiate this to obtain an equitable share, especially in light of the Mark 1 remasters releases?

Re: Forum interview with Nick Simper


Hi again,

Were there ever "embryos" of Mark II songs played by Mark I?

I doubt they did, they made a whole clean slate. If they had any material Ritchie probably kept it hidden, but Nick will know.

One more Nick:
In an in depth Simon [sign in to see URL],way back when his fanzine was still called "Stargazer" you mentioned how heavy you guys were live,and how things leaned alot more toward what mkII went on to be [sign in to see URL] mentioned that "Shadows",(at the time just a 45 gathering dust in the vaults)how then did you feel about the final product when it got a release on "The Anthology" compilation?

I also enjoyed the part where you spoke about how if you guys had the studio time that mkII was getting,things would have been alot different in terms of impact.
I can only imagine you guys doing any better than you did,those albums are still [sign in to see URL] has done nothing to tarnish them,had it been after the turn of the decade,the technology would have sealed them in a higher regard,but mkI fans can only be so lucky.
First class playing you did Nick,you have got to be just about the most underrated bassists in the history of rock.
