Perfect Stranglers

With slight changes to the most recent setlist you have posted, this was pretty much the same show. Being an old Purple fan, they could never stray beyond their 70s music for my tastes. They played: "Woman From Tokyo", "Ted The Mechanic", "Lazy", "Knocking At Your Back Door", "Fools", "No One Came", "Perfect Strangers" (or as Ian put it "Perfect Stranglers") "When A Blind Man Cries", Riff-raff: Who, Yardbirds, Kinks, Stones, Beatles, etc..., "Smoke On The Water", "Hush" and "Highway Star".

They can still rock, but I miss Ritchie Blackmore. Steve Morse is a great player. I met him in the early 90s and he is also a gentleman.
