    Seems conflicting to focus on Blackmore’s Night, yet have so much material in connection somehow with Blackmore over the years.
    For instance, what do “GMT” have to do with Blackmore? They don’t, they just use to work with someone that he used to work with. I guess this outfit doesn’t discriminate the Purple factor. Is this fanzine endorsed? I tend to doubt it…

    We would like to cover the Blackmores Night 2008 German tour, in greater detail, in Issue 3? If fans can help with more reviews and photos of those shows, that would be great!
