    Let me guess…..the Blackmore Worshippers will be pissed because it’s not about him or he won’t be on the Bolin special…..just like he isn’t in Purple anymore….Boo Hoo

    I’d be interested in hearing this special, Tommy was a special talent, unfortunately he was weak minded, hell don’t we all love to party a little, but to get that deep into Coke or Heroin or whatever it was, is beyond me!! Why didn’t he just look around and see what kind of position he was in?? To be in Deep Purple would of gave me an immediated hard on, sorry if anyone’s offended! but it’s true, Anyway we did get 1 CD out of it, DC went out of his way for that boy, to get him auditioned and all, Very sad Scenario, but I think it will be interesting to hear the interview Later BP

    Hi Bill

    I understood Tommy was not really impressed with the fact that he was in Deep Purple.

    Yeah, he probably couldn’t maintain the Hard On as Bill seems to feel was necessary for the ‘Long Term Indurance’ factor for Purple. Seems Bill is mainly relating his affection to Purple with his ‘dicular’…he he he.

    By the way Bill, Priest says he is a guy also…..(FYI).
