antimatter Posted January 24, 2004 Share Posted January 24, 2004 What's your take on this guy? I haven't really seen many mentions of him on this site, although I may have missed them. I just found a CD that I used to have on vinyl. It's 2 concerts, one from 70 and one from 72. There's a song from 70 where DP plays a song called Wring that Neck. Blackmore and John Lords do some back and forth battling that is just brilliant. at least to me. The guy had some great riffs, clasic rock gems, as well great skill. When I watched a new Deep Purple DVD with Steve Morse on guitar, it made me realize how good Blackmore was. No knock on Morse, the man is amazing. Just that I miss hearing Blackmore. I know he still plays with his wife(?) doing Renaissance-inspired work. Not exactly the Rock he used to play. What do you think of the man? Legend? Jerk?
