    I wish the best for Ritchie, I mean he has no equals, but in all seriousness how many more Renaisance Fairs can one play before one wakes up and realizes that he used to be in the greatest live hard rock band of all time. Not sure what kind of spell TMIB is under but one can only hope a little slap of Mennen skin bracer finally snaps our Minstrel In the Gallery back to reality. I mean the 15th Century ended a couple years ago and now might be a good time to get out of the moat. Aint this the same bloke that played for 400,000 in 1974 and now he plays for a bunch of teary eyed weepers?

    @1

    I agree with you in term of missing Ritchie in hard rock world, but let us be honest, he isn’t in his 20’s, 30’s or 40’s any more; and he was obsessed from his early days to do this kind of intimate shows some day. I think that day came and he is 66, in my opinion to late, he should do it even in 70’s and 80’s but stay in hard rock world also 🙂 .
    What I’d like to see is Ritchie and Jon taking it for last time in all possible directions – a little bit of Renaissance and a little bit of hard rock, and some good retrospection; as one shot two legends project, with some friends, and they have them a lot, and let me not say just friends but fans and followers and admirers (Bruce, Lars and many others). That’s something to be kind of realistic and desirable thing to go on with. Still Ritchie should do one last Rainbow hard rock album, maybe in Lord Blackmore’s Rainbow. And I’m not saying in DP, because DP should’ve be something special, and not as this kind of band which is “money-making-on-old-glory-thing”, but as final statement of two legends.

    Hope Blackmore will play with Jon Lord again and more times than just for the upcoming studio version of Lord’s “Concerto”

    @BlackSparrow
    Well, considering he’s now 66, I don’t think he could be bothered to play hard rock anymore. And I don’t blame him. He does what he likes now, with someone he likes doing it with. In Purple, he did stuff he wasn’t particulary keen to do, with people he he’d rather not work with. I know what I would have chosen…

    Hard Rock Pete says:

    Yeah BlackSparrow, we all just wish and live in hope don’t we. Blackmore’s decision not to play “rock” would have to be in my top 5 “things in the world that frustrate me” list. Which coincidentally includes not buying a 1975 MV augusta 750SS when I had the chance!

    Roberto says:

    Jon Lord should invite Deep purple members to play other things instead of a new recording of the Concerto that we just know…
    Now I know what Blackmore and Lord were discussing about…

    Scott F. Feighner says:

    I’m with ya BlackSparrow…when will Ritchie wake up and smell the decaf. Question is, if he does, what does he do? Reform a watered down version of Rainbow? I doubt we’d ever see him with DP again…DP has moved well beyond Ritchie and don’t need him, and listening to Ian, (especially Ian) dont’ want him because he was a distraction.

  12. 12
    Pete. says:

    Bottom line is that Ritchie is the best out there regardless of the genre of music he’s playing. If the Blackmore’s Night bashers out there would go see a show they would hear an amazing concert of incredible music that is as much the same as it is different from some of the stuff he’s done throughout his career. A true fan that appreciates his playing would enjoy the music he is passionately producing and not protest over him not playing hard rock. Not trying to start a war of words but stop lamenting over what was and rejoice over what is.

    Lord_Raiden says:

    It will be great to see Ritchie and Jon play again, mix between Blackmore’s renaissance and Lord orchestra thing might me very interesting. I mean something like Ritchie’s acostic mix with small chamber orchestra, something like Jordi Savall done by Lord and Blackmore.
    I believe that Ritchie probably can play with Jon, but only for that way. I don’t think that he will play big rock’n’roll again.

    HZ says:

    @11

    I’d be with you on that “DP moved somewhere else thing” if they’ve stopped playing Ritchie stuff, his riffs, and start playing only Steve Morse riffs; until that time they are living on someone’s else talent, as RB defined shape and structure of Mk2 and Mk3 – well it’s only my opinion.
    IG private feelings towards RB has nothing to do with set-list and DP’s moving somewhere.

    @1 Blacksparrow,

    With all due respect, many of us characters on this site throw sooooo many OPINIONS out on all things Purple+. It’s not about no MIB equals, I could get passionately OPINIONATED (Right, Wrong, or Indifferent? :>) and espouse on how many galaxies further in the outreaches of space that the current Purple banjo player is than TMIB. It is foolish when all is said and done. Bless each and every UNIQUE banjo player ever to have strummmed in Purple or the young banjo player (He may be all of 22 years old!) I will see tonight in front of perhaps twenty club goer’s

    To quote Terrible Ted Nugent, “Am I weird?”

    Peace,

    Ted :>

    P.S. Go see the current Purple banjo player outside of The Purp’s and leave out anything Purple. And I defy ANYBODY to state that he is not a ROCKET SCIENTIST in his own right. Kind of like TMIB…. :>

    Tracy Heyder (aka Zero the Hero) says:

    Blackmore is doing His Thing, and doing it very well. He has produced many albums with BN. Something I wish Purple had done a little more of.

    I do believe he will get the itch to do something on the Hard Rock side sooner or later, but I hope it’s sooner….I would hate to see what happened to Gary Moore take place with Ritchie. Moore turned to the Blues over 20 years ago and stuck to it while leaving his Hard Rock roots behind. He even made the statement that he would never go back due to feeling silly on stage at his age playing Heavy Rock. Unfortunately, he had decided just before his death to do just that and was going to start touring a set of his songs from his Rock Days and was also contemplating doing an album……Death Struck…..never happened.

    At Ritchie’s age, the same thing is very possible….

    Hope not.

    Cheers

    Frank says:

    You know Black Sparrow, from a fan’s perspective, I’ve got to agree with you. The success RB had for so many years, and the fact that it was shared with so many people, almost obligates him to keep sharing. We don’t want it to end! However, we all have to realize he’s a human being, just like the rest of us. He’s got wants, desires and dreams, whether we agree with them or not, and the fact that he can afford to pursue what he feels is important is his right alone. Fortunately for us, he made some great music with DP, which I will never stop going back to listen to. Thank God there is always music to pursue, new and old, and I don’t believe I’ll ever be able to say that I found it all in my lifetime.

    Mark Davis says:

    @15

    Sure that’s easy to prove. Just buy the Castles and Dreams DVD and the Paris Moon DVD. There you will see and hear Ritchie playing guitar – both electric and acoustic – as good as if not better than ever. Now go get lost in a cloud of ganga smoke and try to keep re-living the 70s.

    @14

    I totally agree that the current Mark should be performing more tunes from the Morse era. They have lots of good material of their own. No, it’s not as good as the Mark 2 era, but considering Gillan and Glover’s insistance that the band is a current vital phenomenon, it is strange they only play the stuff that Ritchie wrote.

    T says:

    Interesting how “Smoke on the Water” and riffy songs like it can be linked with renaissance or medieval intervals and modes.

    Also of note is the mention of the newer, kinder, gentler type of crowd without the excesses of the hard rock genre. Candice agreed that the atmosphere is more conducive to people getting married or engaged at the shows. My own wedding included “Be Mine Tonight,” much more appropriate than either “Burn” or “Smoke on the Water” would have been, and “Mandrake Root” was just too damn long.

    A careful listen reveals a couple of swipes at his old band and management, most notably the comment about playing the same setlist over and over “like certain bands do” where “everybody on stage is full of themselves”.

    In addition, Blackmore says is able to dictate how many shows they play so his current band doesn’t have to play too many nights of the week, keeping the musicians and crowds fresh–good for everyone except the management, he says, who doesn’t get as much money–unlike the old days playing five or more shows a week.

    The language reveals a lot of the motivation behind the change in career direction. The man is doing what he’s always wanted to do, what he likes to do, and is able to grow musically. His current situation lacks the aggrevations of his former bands, most notably Purple, and he alluded to the fact that he’d grown tired of the same old same old. Having total control of direction has an advantage he did not have with former bands, and the fact that his long-time girlfriend (now wife) is a big part of the project gives it that much more appeal.

    Despite the concise nature of the interview–it was only about 20 minutes long–it went a long way to explaining Blackmore’s current position to those who still are unable–or unwilling–to understand his switch from hard rock music. He has more than earned the right to do so.

    And who knows? Maybe he will get tired of the renaissance thing and go in yet another direction. We know it won’t be R & B.

    Steve B says:

    I think we have to understand that times change, people get older, tastes change etc… its just the way it is. If life didn’t move on we would still be stuck in our caves and beating the odd drum, that’s the real “rock age” but the music was a bit dodgy! Deep Purple MK2 were imho the band that got me excited about music and changed my life (just the same as the it has for you) and it still amazes me what they did it such a short time, they came together at the right time and together made the greatest impact ever in music on me. Ritchie is an amazing musician and prolific writer of music, far greater than the meagre credit he has gotten in his life (up to now), but like me (and all of you i guess), life changes us, we slow down, we see different things and all the esoteric and new things we see and hear influnences us in many ways. BlackmoresNight write and perform incredible music, lets see them and enjoy them while we can, as well as the rest of the Deep Purple family members, whatever direction they take I will follow them down the road as long as I can….

    @14

    This guy does have a point and I believe he is right, but it never stopped Ian Gillan from singing. I’m afraid Blackmore just isn’t that brave, nor that suicidal.

    # 15

    First let me tell you..if one thing has been proved during last years, then it is Deep Purple not capable anymore of doing what they thougt they were able to.
    Last youtubes showing shows of them were so worse that Ian coulnd’n even performe SOTW in a respectable way anymore.
    Big shame for them, and also for their own material, own albums, own style…etc.
    Money, luxury and fame….
    True DP disapeared with Lord and the Blackmore guy.

    And with the black master, one has nothing to prove.Listening is enough.

    Even if the BN music isn’t your style, his music and playing has soul, tempo, melody and beauty.
    it always have.

    Even the instrumental solo’s are faster and more exiting than the hardrock copies of DP these days.

    Ritchie for.ex. just has left with Autumn Sky the billboard New Age Charts , standing in top 10 for I believe 8 weeks…

    Lord and Blackmore are still up to date, and full of suprises and worth all our love and happiness and admiration.
    They never grow old, their is music in their blood.

    For DP, I feel ashamed in their place, and I speak to in my heart of fan.
    They are just become like well payed politicians who keep the machine turning for the mob.

    Sorry, and cheers!

    Made in England says:

    @ Pete: Very dangerous territory to define what “true fans” should think, say and do….

    I consider myself a true fan….. of Ritchie’s rock work. I can also appreciate the craftsmanship in what he does now but listening to it sends me to sleep.

    I find it amusing that people are now calling his work renaissance rock…. First it was folk, then it was renaissance folk and now it’s renaissance rock. It sounds to me like people are trying very hard to include his output in the world of rock music by giving it a dubious “rock” label. Is it because they cringe a little a feeling obliged to listen to and feign a liking of renaissance music?

    @11: I think Ritchie should do what he enjoys doing. I would have liked him to have formed a more melodic rock band, recording music like Son of Alerik, Weiss Heim and Maybe Next Time. He obviously feels he’s moved into an age where he feels it’s ridiculous to pretend to be a temperamental guitar God. Ill agree that endless instrumentals in this vein would wear thin but there is – or at least was – plenty of scope.

    Danny says:

    I think Made in England nailed it. At the end of the day RB is playing what he likes to play and that’s good for him. Personally I don’t care for the music because I feel that his musical partner has no musical ability whatsoever. Perhaps had he chosen to do this type of music without the cheesy vocals or acoustically I might have given it more of a listen. It just comes across as elevator music to me. Oh well…there are always my old Rainbow and Purple vinyls to remind me of good times and great music.

  31. 31
    Larry R. Toering says:

    @11

    “IG private feelings towards RB has nothing to do with set-list and DP’s moving somewhere.”

    Of course it doesn’t, it has everything to do with marketing and promoting a long time act, and certain decisions just get made for such acts depending on who represents them, and those parties know one hell of a lot more how to do music business than the artists they represent. Of course they could try just once to go against that, but it would likely be more of a suicide mission than playing it safe in order to give the MAJORITY of the concert going public what they demand if possible. Anyone who knows a thing or two about this business would find that a reasonable fact and just the way it is, like it or not. I do hope they come and play at your house sometime though, and play whatever it is you wish them to play. It doesn’t get any more laymen than that. I guess it has to be spelled out once in a while… do I even care, probably not, as nobody tells me what to like or what to buy. So it’s anyone’s mistake if they’re following Purple and don’t like what the see, get off your ass-backward bandwagon then and find something else to do. Just deal with the facts of life in the music business, and remember, we don’t own Deep Purple.

    Ritchie doesn’t have to pretend… 8)

    This witty saying #28 reminds me though …Ritchie is a man of good taste, always,also for dressing code according to the occasion.
    i can’t help it, but spontaneous I compare with Gillan in this matter…this one has an appearance as a grandpa…what a disaster…

    Once my hero singer asked ‘where is my Robin Hood outfit’ and he hated the man in the costume…

    I only wanted they would still have had the right spirit !

    Made in England says:

    I’ve often wondered actually if his attire is purely for the stage or does he dress up like that every day? I can’t recall having seen any pictures of Ritchie over the last 10 years or so where he’s not dressed up.

    And did RJD dress up like a cast member of Willow every day?

  37. 37
    HZ says:

    @31

    Well, I never taught that any of us own DP or something like that. I purely say that “move-on-thing” isn’t really “move-on-thing”, because whenever I used to split with some girl and find myself another I wouldn’t ask her to be mostly the previous one – therefore it isn’t right to say I’ve moved on, I’ve got divorced and then act with your new girlfriend and live your old life (for example tell her dance like my old one, dress like her, and let me just correct some of the things on you I didn’t like it on my old one). In this case: play that same old tune and behave… and let me all say we’ve moved on.
    To be honest I never listened to DP because of “business???”, f… “business”; I loved them because of their music, and I’m true fan of DP and family, but it doesn’t mean that this what’s happening now is really truly DP with what they’ve started long ago – and not just musically in term of business, but as a group of people determined to give something to the world through music. Obviously today it’s just business based on old glory – mainly Ritchie’s riffs – and empty phrases like “we’ve divorced”, but let me dress my new one your old dress (probably that should be added in this sentence)…

  38. 38
    Larry R. Toering says:

    Somebody is in sad need of the understanding of the track ‘No One Came’ and what Ian meant by the Robin Hood outfit part. It was in reference to something he previously said about it, having to do with dressing the part and how far that doesn’t go… as if to say he got to where he was without a designing consultant, unlike most pop stars do when they surface. And what on earth singing and guita playing have to do with it I don’t know, why on earth compare them that way? Absolutely ridiculous! I can’t think of a person on earth who would care about such things. I just wish people would get off that. Entire liefetimes have been lived between now and when Ritchie left the rock scene. And just for good measure, a Robin Hood outfit might be a good idea for Ian by now, I have to admit, but it’s still nonsense to dwell on it or use it for your own moral victory because Blackmore is no longer with Deep Purple. Deal with the facts and don’t worry about it, they will deal with you either way.

    Most of BMN’s studio albums & promo videos are excellent. However, Fires at Midnight & Winter Carols are boring. I don’t like their live performances – Past Time Good Company, Casle & Dreams, Paris Moon. Probably BMN was long-time session project. Though those materials consist of folk songs, their records sold always better in Germany and Russia.
