Deep Purple live at Donau Arena (Regensburg, Germany 2013-10-25)
With positive but nevertheless mixed feelings I remiss on the performance.
Frampton+co was good and funny. But Peter: ‘mit Euch’ nicht ‘mit Ihnen’ (chuckle!). We’re all united, ain’t we?
Was Gill(i?!)an quite with it til Strange Kinda … (ie 5 th)?!
It got better and better with marvellous solos, impro. and exchange. I-An (as the Ds call him) went on to do new and interesting interpretations of his works – different, unexpected, but refreshing. Despite other reviews and rumours, Ian can still MORE than deliver – like a time served craftsman with an ever adapting style of his own.
Riffs from You Fool No One and Goin Down. Ian in 2 ‘Smokings’ (Cream then Black with dickie) …… hmmmnnn … different. (gell?!)
All very well nit together, great lights, honourable and decent homage to JON, harmonie and FUN. (oh, yes, and a lil bi a rock n roll)
P. S. well done to Rob (from Notts/Dorset!?!) and Team for somehow mastering those acoustics. Wot a bluudy challenge!
So hope to be in Stuggi on 31.10
