good interviews David, the most what Blackmore said i can underline.
Too many people didn't recognize the highmusically subtleties in purple songs, some were snubs some were fools.
When purple weren't mainstream no more, some homemade musicexperts didn't want to look uncool and were running after Mc Laughlin.
Blackmore brings it to the point, "you might expect this kinda sound if you're going to hell", like this
It must be very frustrating if the audience is freaking out when RB playing guitar with the feet and don't remark when some real divine guitar solo is going on.
Blackmore never wanted to be the circusmonkey, he easily could have been the "sexy" guitarhero, but he didn't want. Good music is too serious!!

When i look upon the Rockn' Roll decades i'd say:

the fifties were the beginning, before Elvis Presley was nothing, more i cannot say cause i wasn't alive at this time.
the sixties was the decade of illumination, in the late sixties i had suddenly
the feeling as if someone had switched the light on, really.
The seventies was creation.
The eighties was destruction, too many greedy people had smashed all down.
Since then we're crawling on the ground tryin hard to get some ray.
A few years ago, there was somethin' going on what could give reason for optimism again.
BCC and Glenn solo gives faith!
