Too true.And on the ninth of next october it will be 9! years ago that I watched you performing with them on the "Rockpalast" gig.
Music/concerts in general are very significant marks in our life which tell you how time goes by.
WS in december 1980,my first Purple family concert - now ain't that shocking... emoticon

Still almost three years away from celebrating seeing your version of Rainbow at the Birch Hill Nightclub in New Jersey. It was incredible seeing the band up that close and still being able to hit the bar without missing a beat. You were pretty cool hanging around the pub area afterwards and chatting with the lads. I also met Mick Cervino in attendance that night and stood and talked to him for quite a while. I had no idea he was about to join Blackmores Night. I just remember him talking about being on holiday from Italy and coming to America to see RBR.

Doogie, I reckon you were actually the best vocalist Rainbow had, because you combined the best of all the others in a single package. You did really well doing all the old material. I have a great live recording of you doing Oceans of Time followed by Mistreated, from somewhere in Germany, just brilliant stuff. Also the overall sound during your era was much much better and Ritchie's playing was/still is getting better as he gets older.Hunting Humans and Black Masquerade, from the Circus Knights recording were mega. Keep up the good work.

I'm a Scottish Fan, as well, so "keep yer sporran tight", as we say ! ..... and you know what I really mean !

If history were to repeat, first we need Blackmore and Lord to join up and offer Gillan, Glover and Paice a job in their Deep Purple reunion, then after a year Ritchie would leave (due to musical differences with Gillan of course) and then put together Rainbow with Doogie.
