Joe Meek night

In the early 1960s Ritchie Blackmore started out as a session player for Joe Meek’s music productions and performed in several bands. He was member of instrumental combo The Outlaws and backed Heinz (playing on his top ten hit JUST LIKE EDDIE), Screaming Lord Sutch, Glenda Collins and BOZ among others.

It is almost 40 years since Joe Meek died (3rd Feb 1967). A special commemoration night at the National Film Theatre in London will occur on Friday 9th February 6.20PM NFT2.

THE FLIPSIDE is a new initiative at the National Film Theatre. Our mission: to seek out film and TV that is weird, wonderful, offbeat, unseen, outrageous and downright unlikely; from the trashy to the terrific; combining main features with way out extras in search of strange new worlds of cinematic experience. Groovy pop musical with David Hemmings and Steve Marriott. Fab sounds from Heinz, The Outlaws, Jennifer Moss, Gene Vincent and many more. Plus Joe Meek speaks, and live footage of the Honeycombs! Plus rare colour film of Screaming Lord Sutch in his blood-drenched heyday, and The Tornados dressed as robots! Afterwards, in the NFT Café Bar (free admission): DJ Big Beat Kris spins far out Meekian waxings until midnight!

    […] While Page’s legacy in the studio in the early 60s is/was common knowledge, I never knew Ritchie was a session guy. He was a very happening guitarist by the time he was 18 though and he was […]
