Best At Ballads


 There may not be all that many ballads in Deep Purple's song catalogue - of course, this all depends on each listener's definition of what a ballad is - but they're there. Who do you think was the best ballad singer* of Purple's vocalists? Criteria: The singer's performance has to have been recorded and released while a member of Deep Purple and been on a Deep Purple album


*Yes, Funkified Hughesites, Glenn's listed as a choice in the poll! emoticon

Re: Best At Ballads


I'll go with Rod Evans!
Don't know if he's the "best" in this company (that would take some), but I think ballads was the strongest parts of his repetoire. That could go for Coverdale too, Soldier of Fortune could be way enough to win any such poll, but really I think Evans' take on ballads like Help, Lalena, and, nonetheless, Anthem, will do for the gold medal here.
Then silver to DC, and bronzemedal to Glenn Hughes for Holy Man.

Re: Best At Ballads


 I could go with about five of the choices and still not be completely convinced I made the right choice.

I took Bolin on the strength of "Dreamer"

 Thier names are there as a sort of concession to those who like thier T's crossed + thier I's dotted at all times, is all. They all were in Deep Purple, all had thier voices recorded on at least one Deep Purple studio album track...plus it gives the poll that air of lightheartedness that I'm famous for...I didn't space/capitalize/puncuate the 'Iam A. Stain' thing properly, either...so there went that joke right down the drain... emoticon ...the hell with it, Milan - don't vote...that'll teach me a lesson! emoticon ...and it might teach Purple one, too - who knows? emoticon ( emoticon / emoticon )
