When are you going to make Blackmore understand that he has to reunite Rainbow with you???? The last line up was way to good to just fade away like that... emoticon

Doogie's work with Yngwie has to be heard to be believed, some incredibly wicked stuff there, both live and in the studio, absolutely freaky, and complimentary to his cosmic sound... and nothing like Rainbow, even when covering them, just out of this world sounding.

Re: Short notice


 I heard one song on late night American radio of Widdleview with Dougie from thier first album together and it was literally a mess and there was no way it attracted me to even give anything else another listen.It also had a clip of an interview with Doogie going on about the lp,which actually kept my attention prior to the song being played. Afterwards I wished I would have left the search function on on my car radio that night.
 Same old Widdleview.
 I even asked Doogie here if he had any power over suggesting to Widdleview to play something significant to which he replied that he's the boss and there's no changing him.
 It didn't even sound like Doogie singing. It was much worse.

Re: Short notice


Mess = your comprehention level concerning this subject... how do I know? Because once I comprehended it through may listenings, it did click, and I do find it clinically amazing, so if thats anybody's thing, it's worth checking into.
Yngwie is an advanced guitarist beyond words, but that doesn't mean you have to like him, just deal with the fact.
