Lightbulb What is Blackmore up to?

Blackmore’s Night have said they will not be touring for the rest of this year. There is a reason for this, but we’d better wait for an official announcement!

Candice had her solo album, so now it's time for an all instrumental album by Ritchie
With songs like Son Of Alerik, Weiss Heim, Maybe Next Time, Snowman and so on

I don't expect him to start rockin' again.

Hmmm, there are lots of gigs announced on the official BN site for July and August. So far tickets are still on sale.
So wonder where dp.net got this info from.

P.S. Do you recognize Ritchie at 16? (with Mike Dee & The Jaywalkers)

@ tmc

As you can see, Ritchie DOES still rock. Though not in a way we would like him to

No setlist yet. Just heard that it was overlong and taking photos was a pain

Are you going in costume? Please upload a pic, eh!

And remember: "ein Bier bitte"

We went to see him in Derby. Great show and worth seeing. One fellow scribe had never ever seen Ritchie perform and he was pleasantly surprised that the lack of Purple and Rainbow numbers wasn't a disappointment. Thankfully I have witnessed the whole smashing range!

Even as huge a part of his career as Purple and Rainbow were, they're so far in the rearview mirror these days it's no wonder that Ritchie isn't too concerned with keeping that flame alive. And I'm sure Candice doesn't want to sing a bunch of songs from Ritchie's old catalog. Having said that, Blackmore's Night has done some really nice reworkings of "Rainbow Blues", "Rainbow Eyes" and "Street of Dreams", the latter featuring a nice workout on the Strat. I know their music isn't for everyone, but I like it a lot and my wife was just commenting a few days ago how much she liked Candice's voice. It's all good. If I want to hear classic Blackmore, I can always go back and cruise through the dozens of studio, live and bootleg albums I have from his heyday.

Having seen Blackmore's Night live, I was pleasantly surprised with Candice, but I just think Ritchie needs to play more guitar instead of hurdy-gurdy, lute and mandolin. After a while, the set becomes tedious. Not being a fan of Renaissance music myself, it may be brilliantly arranged, but after a few songs I was ready to go out to the car and listen to my iPod.

New interview out with Candice and Ritchie by Mark Vogel and nj.com.

Ritchie talks about the song "Carry on Jon"...

"... It was something to Jon, a way of saying thanks for the years. It's hard to talk about, when someone says, 'What did you think of Jon?' I'd rather play a tune. "
- Ritchie Blackmore

Here is a link to the full interview...

Blue, thank you for the link of new Blackmore interview, but it seems to me not so much news as i really expected.
Now, after an easy sunny saturday in the garden, after one or two König Ludwig Dunkel, by the way Germany's best beer, i feel in the mood to analize a bit the Blackmore artisthistory.
Well, Blackmore seems to me to be a sort of driven creator marking off from music styles he don't like, so although a terrific funky rythm player he decided to do this Bach influenced hardrockthing after leaving Purple in the 70 ties.
Although you could hear rumours he DID like 70 ty disco music, and he DID like Stevie Wonder, he was not able to take the new direction Purple had taken further than "Stormbringer".
Was he a kinda prophet about the 80ties rock theatre? And was he leaving the rockscene to make up Blackmore's Night as the most konsequent answer to the hip hop culture.
I mean ,what was the strongest opposite against hip hop than his middle- age rock.
So it was logical indeed.
But now why not open a new chapter by making a new rocksound with all the rythm qualities Blackmore is blessed with and which he can't carry through his middleage rockband!?.
I mean you don't have to go to mk3, just listen to the funky guitar strumming part in "Hard Lovin' Man" from "In Rock", awesome!!

greets
Sigurd

Here's the latest interview with Ritchie and Candice from Moscow just a couple of days ago.
It's a bit sad when a man of his age says his best friends are his wife and his cat.
On the other hand, I don't know anybody else who oozes so much black humour with such a straight face.

In the past, I have been very negative about the whole medieval/renaissance direction Ritchie had taken; however, more recently, I have grown to appreciate the music they are creating. I guess I'm either getting old or becoming more appreciative of life and what it has to offer. Also, I'll have to stop looking at the 'new moon through a pane of glass' - too many years of bad luck - now I know why !

Yes, Blue, one does mellow with age...

And so does Ritchie Blackmore. Jon's death has affected him a lot as he admits.

Quote:
...It’s a pity we didn’t get to do a few last shows with the original line up.
...He will be sorely missed. Sometimes I think it’s always the people left behind that suffer more then the people who left us.

It's also a pity that Blackmore never even considered playing a few gigs with the MKIII line-up.

Yvonne...we'll, maybe Ritchie will surprise us. I can see him playing with MKIII rather than Ian and Roger - in recent interviews, he mentions that he has regular communication with David and some with Glenn.

Who knows, maybe 2014 will be their year and possibly Deep Purple gets into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame ?

No wait ...... the Back Street Boys will probably get the nod instead !

Anyways do you see this part of Ritchie's interview a few days ago ?

Blackmore is open to playing old material again

In an interview to the Russian newspaper Kultura Ritchie Blackmore mentioned that he would be open to the idea of staging one-off shows shows playing his old material :

RB : Yes, indeed, I’m proud of what I have written in the past, and even thinking of maybe 3-4 shows playing exclusively Deep Purple and Rainbow stuff. Just to appease nostalgic feeling of Blackmore’s Noght fans who still enjoy 70-80s recordings. I will never quit what I am doing today, but such concerts could be enjoyable and a sort of a reward to my devoted fans.

There was no mention as to what personalities could be involved in such a project.


And three days ago a tweet from Candice Night to David Coverdale :

CN @davidcoverdale hi David. Just wanted to say good luck on your tour. Ritchie &I r currently touring in England. Onto Germany nxt. Speak soon !

Something is cooking no ?

What is Blackewrs up to?

he is up to stating that he would welcome playing old Dp and rainbow stuff (although he doesn´t mention if this implies DP or Rainbow members), and he is up to releasing the Rainbow Dussldorf 1995 gig on CD and DVD.
