MK3 tour wont happen because DC cant sing live like he used to and he would be blown off stage every show - never mind the Blackmore issue. A studio release by Glenn and David would be the only viable option.

Having said that, Glenn might not sell the volume of albums or amount of tour tickets like DP or Whitesnake do, but his writing/songs on his last 3 releases are a million times better than anything the others have done or are capable of.

For Glenn to get involved with a 30 year old nostalgia trip would be the biggest backward step of his solo career and a massive mistake in my humble opinion. He plays Burn and Mistreated well enough on his own gigs so I dont need to see DP do it - although the JLT version actually opened their shows with Burn so i did get to see RB play it anyway.

Funnily enough tho, due to Blackmore and Gillans personal fallout (and the fact he fell out with DC years ago too) its probably more likely Glenn would be the ex-DP person who has the best chance should RB rock again.

....and having said that, Paul, I can asure you that RB pretty much rock in every BN show Ive seen so far which were about 8. Especially when it comes to the 2nd half of the shows. "Rock" can have various faces. Classic Rock, Heavy Rock, Folk Rock with heavy elements etc. etc. I always enjoyed him playing "Black Night with a over 3 minutes solo a lot at BN, also the "SOTW" versions as also the throwing in of ..YES...the "Burn" riff. I have posted a clip of BN showing this riff on here, i think is been nearly 2 years ago but David always says..."Search" is your friend. Gotta agree here

The bottom line is that RB NEVER lost his ability to rock and he still does. What always drives me crazy is people (not you, Paul, my brother!) judging over current Blackmore or BN and NEVER attended a live gig which is so much the opposite from the studio recordings. First get the big view ...

Beside that I totally agree with Paul again as I do most of the time

Cheers, Achim

Great minds think alike Achim!

Ive seen 3 Blackmores Night tours and yes his playing is as good as ever, especially on the acoustic guitars. Candice has a great live voice.

I'd really like to see a tour as Rainbow with Candice doing the vocals.

Interesting idea, Paul! They often played "Man on the Silver Mountain" and others in notable versions in the past.
People enjoy it a lot! All are having a great time and thats the main thing, isnt it?

LOL...listen to the crowd after 2nd verse...

Alternatively Ritchie could simply rearrange many of Blackmores nights songs and do rock versions of them.
Off the top of my head Fires at midnight, Written in the stars and Storm would all make magnificent rock tracks.

I'd love to see/have Glenn and Ian Gillan onstage at the same time, singing in unison to those awesome songs. I know Glenn's voice is still there, thank God, but since I just woke up and have to get ready for Church in just a minute or two, just how is Gillan's voice now? If I missed a recent Gillan video in this thread or others, I'll do a Search when I get home and see what his pipes are like now.

As for the Zeppelin comparison, there is no comparison. They were/are NOT Led Zeppelin without Bonzo in the drummer's throne. I've seen the poor quality vids and heard a poor audio bootleg as well, and Jason can't hold a candle to his Dad, let alone Paice or Holland. Prank/Lenny

STILL.....drinking my morning coffee in my GH/DC mug ~

After reading all of the previous posts, ranging from
totally "yes" to absolutely "no," let me add my 2 cents:

I would pay good money to see Glenn Hughes & David Coverdale
on the same stage...................playing a game of chess.

Of course, after the chess game was over,
(hopefully ending in a draw, to avoid bloodshed)
then the real fun would start..............

Lock 'em both up in a recording studio,
and don't let them out, until the new CD album / DVD was finished.

HI, this is my first post.
Sincerely, i wouldn't like this kind of commercial Reunion, just because Deep Purple and their Musicians had and have principles. We (fans) want that reunion but we have to think about the causes that make that happen

(sorry for my bad english)

Would love to see Mk III do a one off show/tour. But I think the sad fact is there's far too little interest here in the States. I'd be willing to bet most people have no memories of anything Deep Purple beside "Smoke on the Water"

The mind boggles !!

Paul

that would be awesome

but would it be a $200 a ticket deal like most reunion shows?

I can see it happening. Eventually Richie will get bored, and maybe consider doing it. I think David would do it. We know Glenn will. The great thing about it is that we know Glenn can pull it off, and David probably can too.

There is no reason why voices like these, which are amazingly still intact, should not be doing this material.
