more than,

Steve Morse and Don Airey needs Deep Purple.



Who are Deep Purple?

Like Lord said in a recent interview it was his band. Indeed it was.

After RB left, the command was clearly given to IG, because it was RB against IG (and vice versa) ever since 1984 (okay this was the second time for that setting). JL's retirement sealed that thing.

Does "Deep Purple" (referring to the fact that it is, in the end, only a name) need Morse and Airey? Well, they felt that they (first MK2 minus RB and later, MK7 minus Lord) needed to replace first the guitarist and then the keyboard player. The existence of Deep Purple does not depend on Morse or Airey, as well as their careers don't depend on DP.

But just to put things in perspective, which would you believe to be more commercially (the artistic terms are harder to debate on and it's secondary here) successful, the current line-up or if MK2 (or even MK3) would reunite? I think we both know the answer to that.

So, they'd play Ozzy Osbourne covers as Deep Purple?

Hmmm, that is an original idea.

Re: New Purple Line-up


I just wish that Deep Purple will cease to exist with dignity. That means:

- No more reunions whatsoEVER.
- No fake-line ups like today's Thin Lizzy or Queen.
- No participation from former DP members in tributes or cover bands or other nostalgia events.

The above mentioned stuff is pure cannibalization of the Deep Purple legacy/trademark/history.

If it ends, I want it to end permanently. "Ordinary" people stop working at 65, and that's it. They don't return to work now and then just for the fun of it, do they?

Sigh. I love the Morse era Purple. It ain't Richie, but it's good. People have made good points in thread, points I'd rather ignore, but needed to hear. Purple is stil a great band - let's enjoy that, no matter the membership.

Couldn't agree more. Make mine a Darjeeling!

Its a lovely day, so let’s all sit out on the lawn and have some nice salmon sandwiches made from brown bread with the crusts trimmed off.

But to ensure the best of order, decorum and thing like that, someone had better make sure any accompanying cucumbers have been peeled, sliced and put on a plate.

At least their consumption should not require anyone to get out the TCP! emoticon

a) If Deep Purple is/was to come to an end, I can second this emotion.

b) Maybe it is 'cannibalization' - but as long as the 'cannibals' are in Deep Purple, it's their right to 'cannibalize' themselves. You, or anyone else, isn't forced to watch or listen to the 'cannibalization', though.

c) I can second that emotion too.

d) Some do, some don't. I've discussed this with lots of folks that retired, and some of them still wish to work - even as a 'part-time' worker, just to keep themselves busy. Whether that can be considered 'for the fun of it' or not, is open to each observer.
 A lot of occupations have mandatory retirement ages, but I've never heard of an 'official' retirement age for musicians. Just as an example, Grace Slick chose the age of (approximately) 50 for herself to retire from the rock 'n roll music scene. It seems that Blackmore chose (approximately) the same age - for all intents + purposes. It's an individual choice for each musician, which makes it fair enough, in my view.

Re: New Purple Line-up


I guess many of us can't shake from the feeling that the legend and magic of Deep Purple has somehow gone away, and that's because of the recent carnation of the band.

I wish the guys separately all the best. But now I feel I wish they stopped playing as Deep Purple long time ago and pursued solo careers.

I don't agree they should stop at 65. Being a musician is like being an actor, a painter. You don't stop working, and I'm glad. If only they didn't perform under the name of DP. They can record Bananas, Plumbs, whatever, but not under the name of DP.

--> Of course. We are not forced to listen. But to me, it's like some low-fat or low-carb products. Not totally inedible, but indeed tasteless and really not worth paying for.
