Great interview. And what an adult thing to say about the Ritchie issue. In contrast to how most rock bands deal with ex-members, with the brothers in Pasadena as Exhibit A.

quote:
Ritchie Blackmore has mentioned his interest in playing one last show with the band. How do you feel about that?

Well, he's one of the founding members of Deep Purple. Fans would love it. It would be nice, I think, to see closure with everybody involved, and the bad feelings put aside. I think they'd all get a kick out of it if they could get past the psychological barriers. I am a fan of music, I'm a musician. I am not a politician.

Now, a lot of people would feel intimidated, to have somebody come who's likely to play over them, standing in front of them and stealing the spotlight or whatever. But I thought, a lot of people would love to see this. And at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I thought Ritchie Blackmore was going to show up. He could've played three songs, but I ended up doing them, because he didn't. That was up in the air.

There have been a lot of bad things said and done amongst the guys, and anyhow, it is like the ice has to be broken. I think that once that's done, they'd all have a great time. But I don't know how to go about doing that. Anyway, as far as I am concerned, all members, past and present and future (laughs) of Deep Purple, are welcome.

You don't mean these guys, hiuh?!?!



As the years passed I thought Blackmore was done with rock, but in 2016 he fired it back up. He has made a few statements regarding doing a show with DP. I have seen and heard a few interviews with Ian Gillan over this year where he has mentioned he has had contact/spoke with RB and things sound like they might be ironed out to a degree. So you never know.

There would never be a full blown reunion, at this point . I think for the most past DP is shutting down after this tour. Ian sounds like he is putting it to bed . I heard and read things from Paice, Glover and Airey where they are more up in the air with it. I guess more so done with the heavy touring aspect. I guess a final show with RB might be cool if everyone is clicking musically, which I don't think it would be a problem with pro's like them.

I don't really follow Purple closely, but some of the things I've seen or read seem like they (maybe just Ian) have been fairly strong on the touring coming to an end (eventually...after this long farewell tour). But they also seem like they have been coy about the future beyond when the touring stops, as if they might still do one-off live shows such as festivals or perhaps even short residencies at smaller venues in bigger cities.

If they did do something like that, or even on this long farewell tour, seems like they could do with RB what the Stones did with Mick Taylor on the 50th anniversary tour (except more than 1 song, and not always the same songs). Assuming they could work things out or call a truce.
