I think he would have managed a couple of songs at the RAH without exposing himself vocally.

However, I reckon he would have been just fine performing a couple of songs outwith the rigours of a tour.

I've often wondered just what relationship DC and Jon had during the 30 or so years after Jon left WS. I don't think they had much contact and I remember Jon saying he bumped into DC in America for the first time in many years and 'didn't recognise him'. It's a real shame if they became distant as there is no doubt that DC genuinely looked up to Jon from 1973-1984.



I believe, like the Gillan band situation, WS (Incl JL) were fed up with DC’s tight reign on finances during the latter part of the 78-84 period.


RB allegedly told a friend of mine he paid jimmy Bain more than Lord was paid in WS when he found out details during the 84 reunion period. So unsurprisingly there were a few comments made in the press in the following years. Nothing major, digs….like mocking DC’s ‘learning from the past not living in it’ comment.

For example, I also recall Moody, Marsden and Lord kind of mocking DC’s lyrics and stage craft in that UK Channel 4 HM documentary around 98-99.

If I remember correctly, didn't DC buy out the debt from Purple management in 1982/83 (Coletta)? Also I think both Lord and Paice were paid much better in comparison to say the rest of the band.

I think Coverdale had somewhere in the neighborhood of a couple hundred thousand pounds of debt when he booted Coletta ... so if there was some issues with pay at the end of Lord's time with DC it may stem from that.

Lord and Paice were paid well..the other band members less so. By the time 1987 appeared DC was in a lot of debt. Good job it worked.

Review reiterates he didn't like the stormbringer taster but finds all of this much better to his surprise. States lady double preferable to the versions of Burn and Storm. Sail away v disappointed
