    They were asked to do Live Aid, but Ritchie said no without even consulting the band!

    But apparently the banjo player did not want to be involved.
    They did play Live8.

    Purple were busy on tour in 1985. It’s a lead time biz. They had plans.

    Once again no RB. I remember all the negative comments aimed at IG and BP when it was lauded that Ritchie was being pushed out of attending the RRHOF ceremony. This is Ritchie in reality. He never attended any kind of awards other than in the early days, when the management and record company probably insisted that he attend. His contribution to the success of DP is unparalleled. We all know that, but he is a very single minded guy and does exactly what HE chooses to do.

    Blackmore was right, Live Aid = total crap and waste of time.
