A touching story

Blackmore's Night in Tarrytown, NY, Oct 25, 2012; photo © Nick Soveiko CC-BY-NC-SA

New Jersey Stage has an interview with Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night on the occasion of their upcoming shows in the area. Not much in the sense of groundbreaking news in there, just a bit of Ritchie being Ritchie at the end:

When asked if there was a fan or two that really touched Ritchie over the years, he replied, “Yes, there was a fan that touched me – so I punched him in the nose!”

His music may have mellowed, but he’s still 100% rock and roll at heart.

    So, rock’n’roll is associated with punching fans in the nose, eh? Blackers just tried to be funny but that one fell flat, really.

    Ritchie is so funny :)… it’s no wonder that such a young and beautiful woman has been with him for a long time in a happy marriage and business cooperation. He is a great artist-leader and a funny peculiar man.. maybe sometimes strange… but it’s never boring with him .
