Send lots of money

A new Ritchie Blackmore Youtube channel, ostensibly official, was inaugurated on June 23, 2022, with this unlisted video. It promises weekly updates of which not much has materialized since then:

Thanks to Akemi and Amass.jp for the heads up.

    RB seems completely & utterly disinterested. I won’t hold my breath waiting for new content.

    Ritchie’s a scream. The only thing that rivals his guitar playing is his sense of humor (humour for you Europeans). Between Ian Gillan’s sense of humor and Ritchie’s, you almost have to wonder how those two ever got into a row. But I know they had some hilarious and fun moments together – especially on stage – many of which are captured on video or audio. I look forward to propping my feet up, eating popcorn and watching my favorite comedy duo in Ritchie & Candy having at it. Tallyho!

    Classic Blackmore, bless him. We have to laugh, especially in these times. He is correct in saying that the guitar does sound wonderful & that hat, cannot beat it. So old & antiquated, the hat I mean, ha ha ha! Cheers.

    A new nut for man his age is a welcome thing.

    No shame in saying ‘send lots of money’
    But what is shameful that this has come this level when other members with links to DP are getting rich from constant touring using the DP umbrella โ˜”
    Very Sad to see Ritchie in this clip. He looks like a broken man.

    According to a tweet on Candice’s twitter page from July 3rd…

    “Dont forget to sign up for Ritchie’s official channel on Youtube! Beginning Tues!”

    But which Tuesday, we don’t know…maybe the 5th??

    Good to see Mr. Blackhat has not lost his sense on humour during the plague. Actually, I think he has gained some more. For what does he need all the money he is begging now?

    The hat is for stashing all the money in. Cheers.

    MacGregor says:

    Adel @ 5 -I am not sure if you are aware of royalties from songwriting. Unless a songwriter or a co-songwriter accepts a payout for future royalties & someone else has not managed to manipulate the system, any past songwriting member should be entitled to a portion of future royalties. That can also include songs being performed live in concert. Something like that if all is above board, so to speak. Cheers.

    I’m sure Ritchie never needs to worry about money again, he’s done plenty well, college tuition for Autumn and Rory will not be an issue. That is definitely not the reason he is doing this. Looks more like something his better half would talk him into to be more of a presence in social networks. Their ability to tour is finite due to Ritchie’s age, but online gigs can be a possibility for much longer.

    MacGregor @9
    Wow….thanks for the info.
    Actually that’s means the mules are working hard to bring the black horse ๐ŸŽ enough hay.
    No wonder he keeps saying Carry On ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Peace ๐Ÿ‘โœŒ๏ธ

    I love English football (Premier League), English rock.. and English humor. Ritchie makes a copy of the last two theses.. and he also played football well (clip Perfect Strangers). What a man ๐Ÿ™‚ long live RB !

    Adel @ 11 -indeed, they are working overtime those mules, he he he. As we know from previous comments over the years Blackmore has nothing to do with the internet etc. As soon as I noticed the story, I thought someone else is behind this no doubt. I am glad he mentions that he has nothing to do with it. Good humour though. Cheers.
