Doogie White solo album


"As Ronnie is off with Tony Iommi, touring and working on a new Heaven and Hell album I thought it was time to do some writing with my good friend Mr Craig Goldy. We have written 5 songs together. I have also been working with Paul Logue from Edens Curse. In total we have 16 killer tunes to work on. I have assembled the great, good and unwashed for this. We started in the autumn last year, kicking ideas around. Between us we have come up with some dynamic and aggressive songs covering a colourful spectrum of hard rock. The drums were recorded in Florida late last year and we are now laying down the guitars, bass and keyboards.
 
So far I have secured the awesome talents of Craig Goldy and Pontus Norgren, Rudy Sarzo, Neil Murray and Greg Smith, Patrik Johansson and the very splendid Derek Sherinian. In addition to these guys Rata Blanca's guitarist and mainman Walter Giardino has agreed to play on a couple of songs. It's early days but the album is coming together very nicely. Its good to be stepping out and not be in the constricts of a band situation where the demands of others sometime outway the sensibility and understanding of the songs. I believe the work we have done so far is interesting, different and valid. Fook me!! I sound like an over enthusiastic sales man, but its true, this will be an album that covers many aspects of the music that I have enjoyed over the years and then some.
 
I have also contacted my old friend Ritchie Blackmore's management to asked if he would be interested in playing on a song or two. Hell we could even work on some of the ideas we had for the aborted follow up to SIUA. While I dont think he will, I thought it only polite to ask

Well, if you succeed with it, you will be remembered as the man who brought Ritchie Blackmore back to R'n'R. I would buy all your albums in double copy and I would even face my wife to have a poster of you hanging in our bedroom.

Sounds VERY promising......and if you get Blackmore to do R'n'R again, and maybe a Rainbow reunion with you and the lads, I will personally nominate you for the Nobel Peace Price, a Golden Globe and an Oscar (even if it's not in my power to do so, I will make it so, damn it)!!! Hell, I will buy at least five copies of ALL albums you've been involved in over the years too!!!

Good luck, Doogie emoticon

Why do you have to go through his management can you not just talk to the guy himself or are you not close enough to him as that? have you not kept in contact since Rainbow?

You should know how Ritchie operates, especially these days, a little better than that... start by considering the source, she isn't easy to deal with.

Doogie already explained that Ritchie was completely isolated by his management-in-law.

I have a feeling Ritchie might call you after DP just got paid all that money to perform private concerts in Germany and Russia...

anyhow, as for the work with Goldy, Sarzo, Smith and the others... CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR IT!!!

Now, what do you think Blackmores mother in law would say if he did that??? She would go bananas, and probably spank good ol' Blackers until it really hurts...

 I think in the interests of politeness we should allow DW, should he choose, the privilege of answering the question without our speculations/guesses/whatnots.
