If you’ve not yet seen the rejuvenated Rainbow, with a youthful 74-year-old Ritchie Blackmore, then do so as there’s really no guarantee he’ll be doing this for years and years to come!
Ritchie, as master, conducts the happenings in a quiet way and radiates something inviolable – showing here some of the most timely Rock music ever made
Kennedy Street and Kilimanjaro are pleased to announce Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow will be returning to tour the UK in June 2017.
All Our Yesterdays, the tenth studio album from folk rock band Blackmore’s Night introduces the listener to their distinctive sound with the title track which manifests the sounds of Singer Candices’ Russian origins. Although it’s a catchy folk tune it wouldn’t be the greatest opener in my opinion.
The first single I bought was Gillan’s “New Orleans” when I was 15 yrs old. It was therefore a huge honor for me to recently have the chance to interview Deep Purple vocalist and legend Ian Gillan. Deep Purple are always touring, and was no surprise to have to catch up with Ian via an international call to his hotel room in Belgium.
The music is very lovely and certainly takes some skill to perform, but much like many of Blackmore’s old school fans, I long for the day he brings out the Fender full time and gets back to shredding.
I guess in a way it works for Blackmore and company, I mean always being the secretive and private person that he was from his more commercial days with his previous bands, the man was a mystery all in itself. As unique and odd as anything you will ever admire, but his guitar playing and musicianship was genius!!!.
