Blackmore Interview

  • A rather extensive interview with Ritchie a couple of days ago, speaking about Dio, Rainbow, Purple and the making of Machine Head.

  • Unbelievable, these two...

    "It was a pressure- I mean, uh- a pleasure!"

    Did he fool anyone into thinking that that was a slip of the tongue, I wonder?

    Anyway...good to hear that he gets along with Glenn, David and Paicey... :rolleyes: You'd never know it from what the rest of them say! Glenn has done several interviews recently where he says that the Mk. III reunion never happened because no-one had the guts to "call the man in black."

    And I believe Glenn.

  • :cool: 2013 will be 40 years "Burn" and there are some serious words about a great surprise, ..who knows. Not in this interview, but in other pages.
    Hearing the song "Burn" again and again in my car this time i'd say the keyboard solopart has got to be played real good, but live you need two keyboarders to play the final Bachstyle-lines like on the studio record.
    Jon Lord was alienesk.
    Derek Sherinian did it terrific on the BCC Live over Europe, he used a different synthsound that was good taste.
    I'd like to hear (and see) in the middle of the keyboardsolo the noise of the hammondreverb like firing up a rocket.
    On stage at this moment the keyboardplatform could move over the stage like a f...g Michael Jackson showeffect, ha ha!! :lol:

    Yeah, it could be that Ritchie and DC talked about the Burn anniversary. It is even more likely that they talked about the memorial for Jon next year. I guess you've read what his family has posted?

    We wanted to say thank you so much for all your beautiful, kind words and sensitive thoughts. We have been amazed and overwhelmed by it all.
    It will continue to be a comfort to us that his music moved so many people across the world.
    We do plan to honour his memory with a special event in 2013.
    Many thanks,
    Vicky, Amy and Sara



    I really hope that all Purples, past and present, will be able to put their quarrel aside to honour Jon on that special occasion. It's the least they can do for him and it's the only thing they can do for him.

    I agree. It's the least they can do. Life is short and for some, over. Put ALL the BS aside and do something cool. You'll never have another chance again. Finality sucks. This band made you ALL what you are. Have fun with this. Its only a one time thing.

  • Thanks for posting the Blackmore-Night interview. This brings back memories. I remember seeing Rainbow on Mar-6, 1997 at an old converted ballroom in Milwaukee called 'The Rave' (still doing concerts). The acoustics were terrible for this small venue (lots of concrete & plaster). I remember a Teac real-to-real running in front of Richie during the show.

    TheSet list included: Spotlight Kid, Long Live Rock'N'Roll, Mistreated, Wolf to the Moon, Difficult To cure, Still I'm Sad, Man on the Silver Mountain, Black Masquerade, Since You've Been Gone, Perfect Strangers, and ending with BURN.

    Lineup was Blackmore/White/Smith/Morris/Miceli.

    I didn't remember all this, the songs and lineup I retrieved from this site:

    Thanks for the memories :singer:

  • This is a short interview (in English) with Blackmore's Night on the Dutch TV show "De Wereld Draait Door" from 2006.

    Ritchie admits that he had no fun ("is for Disney") when he was with Deep Purple (but the camera shows a smiling Ritchie when he was on stage with them) and that he took up the guitar because he has a tormented soul (aha).

    Funny little clip, gives you an insight to Dutch humour. Watch Ritchie's eyes! :D

  • 'I have a bad reputation, but I don't mind'

    In honour of Ritchie's 70th birthday on April 14, The Guardian uploaded an interview conducted in 1978.

    My favourite LP would be Machine Head followed closely by In Rock and then Burn.

    The solo was too bad to be Page; it had to be Dave Davies



    Ritchie's opinion of the solo in "You Really Got Me" cracked me up, even though I love that song. LOL

    I have my day job, delivering newspapers on my bicycle.

    ;) Before the Rainbow gig in Munich June 12, Ritchie (and Candice) talked to Rock Antenne Radio about financing Blackmore's Night and a lot more.

    Lots of laughter guaranteed! :thumbup:
