It would be nice if Glenn and DC were to turn up for the show.

It's a great pity Ritchie has said he is not willing to turn up, it would have been great to bury the hatchet once and for all. However you have to respect Ritchie's position and he was very public with his grief after Jon's death (very moving interview on BBC radio 4's Brief Lives programme)

I assume they were invited. Let's wait and see for last minute confirmations.

Meanwhile the great Bernie Marsden has been added to the guest list.

Just yesterday I found an interview with Jon from 2011. He said then that he still had close contact with Ian Paice (of course, as brothers-in-law), Ian Gillan and Ritchie Blackmore too.
When asked about all the discrepancies in the band, his last reply was

"What do all these frictions mean compared to fighting cancer..."
