  • :bouncer: If anyone deserves this, it's RJD! :clapper: Knowing Ronnie and his dedication to his fans, I guess he sits on his cloud now, shaking his head and saying: "Are you sure, this is for me?"

    Willem, do you know that Ronnie got his first gold record for the Butterfly Ball - and he gave it back?! Because it was in the name of Roger Glover. Ronnie was so annoyed about this that he returned the record!! And... he got a new one in his name. Well done, Ronnie! There is a clip about this on youtube, I'll make a quick dash and see if I can find it...

  • Hi Lioness,
    Nice words you said about RJD! The video fragment, I have seen on Dutch television, years ago. I must have some old copy on VHS. In Holland we had originally the single Love is all, with a cover were only Roger Glover was mentioned (with Guests). Many people thought that Roger was the singer with that GREAT VOICE. But we know better ;)

  • If you want to see a different side of Ronnie, check out his performances of Sitting In A Dream and Love Is All, live at the Royal Albert Hall with Deep Purple and a full orchestra. Great stuff! :claphands

  • Indeed excellent stuff. he did that also in 2000 with Deep Purple on tour: Concerto for Group and Orchestra. He did four songs and some singalong on Purple stuff :thumbup:
