  • Well, It's clear that the GH & BD set was the highlight of the night, just because the people are talking about it, and the Glenn tribute "This time around" put the hair up, but, Jon's will would have been to see all DP members of all ages togheter on stage... I wonder why it couldn't be

  • :cool: the three titles Glenn performed for Jon Lord were terrific good, and in "This Time Around" Glenn gave us an extra version that showed again his deep musicality :bow:
    Thanx for that, the reverb of this celebration will last a long time i think :D



  • Why didn't Glenn take part of the encore Hush.
    Everybody returned except for Glenn.

    It would have been great if Glenn and Ian G. had sung Hush together.

    The same goes for Micky Moody, Bernie Marsden en Neil Murray.
    They could have played some WhiteSnake songs together, but for some reason Micky doesn't want to perform with Bernie.

  • although the latter wants to fall in again, but Moody wants to stay fallen out :confused: :confused: :confused:


    That is really no surprise when one pursues the history of (British) Whitesnake.
