Blackmore's 1980 comments on The "New" Deep Purple


Q: Are you annoyed about the new Deep Purple?

A: "No, I think it did annoy me for about a day, I was just reading the interview with Rod Evans in 'Sounds' and he hasn't changed, he's really a nice guy, there's no malice intended. He probably wanted to make some money out of it, which he felt he might not have done in the beginning. But that's all over and now the lawyers are in and that's been stopped." - Ritchie Blackmore to Pete Makowski for "Sounds" magazine, October 11th, 1980.

Q: Oddly, Rod Evans, Purple's original singer, formed a bogus reincarnation of the band in 1980 for west coast bar gigs.

A: " I heard about that. I think it quickly fizzled when they were threatened with legal action. It was an unusual move for Rod, because I like Rod as a person - but I suppose it was worth trying." [laughs] - Ritchie Blackmore to H.P. Newquist + Jeffrey L. Perlah in Guitar magazine 1999.

I can't remember such kind words from Blackmore about any other Deep Purple singer

Interesting post. I wonder if Ritchie has ever run into Rod, or Nick Simper after they were fired from DP?
