Steve Morse Would Like To Play With Ritchie Blackmore Again

Steve Morse says that he would like to perform with Ritchie Blackmore, the man he replaced in Deep Purple, one more time. “Well, he’s one of the founding members of Deep Purple,” Morse told Rolling Stone. “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. 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.” Blackmore left Deep Purple in 1994. Copyright(c) 2017 All Rights ReservedLess «
