Jimmy Page take note. This could happen to you. It's already happened to Robert to some extent.

Actually, after she stops playing that god-awful trumpet instrument and Ritchie starts to play the recognizable intro, it's OK - she can sing too. It's just weird. I wonder what attracted him to renaissance music?

It's NOT okay. He and his music have been completely emasculated.

I always thought he played a lot like Jimmy Page with fewer mistakes.

As far as how he got interested in that music, I think that singer is his wife.

She has his testicles in a little suede pouch that she wears on her hip.

She doesn't seem to know a great deal about the recording of their music or her husbands guitar collection. I think the age difference between them is something like 27 years.

Some respect for this underrated guitarist who is much better tna the holy trilogy Beck + page + Clapton together.
Zack Wylde once said that Blacmore and Taylor needed some more justice among guitarists,and that they were very underrrated...........

One thing that's very cool with Blackmore is that no matter what guitar and amp he uses -- a Strat or a 335 -- you instantly hear it's him. It's amazing how he gets that sound every time. It's more recognizable than Mick Taylor's playing, and that says a lot.

Blackmore's Knight makes me cringe, though. Especially his wife's singing.

That's why they call Yngwie Malmsteen for "Blackmore without a brain"

Well with Rainbow,he used to come onstage with Greensleeves playing. So he's always kind of been into that kind of stuff.

Absolutely one of my favorite players. And even though he plays fast, I never considered him to be a shredder, it is always very melodic and bluesy, maintaining a great tone; not just scales up and down.

I always love these threads, I bet there are 1000`s of people who read this board who just laugh to themselves and think "no point discussing with these people". I would love to hear what Keith Richards thinks of Richie Blackmore, probably he would just snort and laugh. Crap music then, crap music now. I didnt see a great deal of mention of Richie in Keiths autobiography.

Without a doubt, always on my top five! One of the best.

Some sources claims that here is recording with Keith Richards, ... not sure:




both, Nico Zentgraf and Felix Aepply have deleted that entry about this 1965 recording, so looks that this session with Keith never happens.

"Ritchie Blackmore was notorious for doing terrible things to people"
funny story anyway:

She has one of her lute strings wound tightly around his scrotum.

A talented guitarist but the route he has taken with his career over the last years with the Renaissance stuff is just too weird for me.

It's a cautionary tale. One minute, you're a God of heavy metal thunder. Some chick working at a radio station on Long Island is asking you for your autograph. Next thing you know, she's in your band, or rather, you're in her band, and your career is being managed by HER MOTHER, who's had your "family jewels" made into a pair of earrings.

The music may not be to your taste, but everything is well played etc.

Anyway, Ritchie's always been a bit of an eccentric and uptight fellow, but the beautiful Candice Night seems to have given him true happiness and peace of mind. The kind that the genuine love of a great women can bring...

Their music seems to be a manifestation of that union.

While it was over 30 years ago I consider Ritchie Blackmore the greatest guitar player I've ever seen, Even better than SRV.

Deep Purple with Blackmore is classic. My favorite line up is with Gillian on vocals, and it is a shame the two just couldn't stand each other! Hated probably. I did see Rainbow in the 80s and it left me cold. Just sounded like corporate rock. They weren't back with Ronnie James, but with Joe Lyne Turner, they blew. Good concert, but better when Blackmore did Purple tunes. He is a fluid player that combines classical with great riffs and hammers it home. The tone he has is stupendous and very unique. Made in Japan is one of those classic 70's rock albums that is a must own.

Seriously, she's done what even Yoko Ono could not do. It's the equivalent of John meeting Yoko, and then never playing rock and roll again, but only collaborating with his wife on "experimental" albums like Two Virgins, for the rest of his life.

Maybe she's worth giving up rock music for! spinning smiley sticking its tongue out
