    if it wasn't for Richie Blackmore I'd have never discovered the new "medieval" section of the catalouge





    In all seriousness, I have seen the guy play with DP once and he absolutely ROCKED! I mean come one, the guy wrote one of the most recognised guitar riffs ever - Smoke on the water!!

      Rainbow Rising is one of the best CD's out there IMO. I'm proud to say I own his signature Engl too!

        Blackers contribution to music? Hmm, he is one of the founding members of Deep Purple. Also, his amazing skill at judging talent in other musicians has helped propel the careers of Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, David Coverdale, Ronny James Dio etc .

        Songs by Blackers?

        He cowrote everything on In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head, Who do we think we are?, Burn, Stormbringer, Perfect Strangers, House of blue light, Battle rages on & all the Rainbow albums.
        He has inspired literally thousands of teenagers to learn to play guitar; some of those kids are now professional musicians in their turn. He is also the second most famous user of the Stratocaster, thus indirectly helping Fender sell truckloads of the axe to all the aforementioned teenagers. If one person can inspire thousands of others to learnt to play a musical instrument, that in itself is a huge contribution to music.

        He also changed how rock music is composed/performed.

        He used to be a moronic ****************************, but he has apparently matured thanks to his fourth wife. The singstress in Blackmores Night.

          I've always been a fan of Blackmore.
          Made in Japan is a great album.
          Rainbow was great (I preferred Rainbow over Deep Purple )
          He has a style of his own.

            He made it acceptable for guitar gods to be totally intolerable.

            Before him every great guitarist had to at least pretend to be an o.k. kind of human being.

                When thy warm sweat should leave me cold,
                And my worn soul find out no bliss
                In the obscenities I kiss,
                And the things shameful that I hold.

                My nostrils sniff the luxury
                Of flesh decaying, bowels torn
                Of festive worms, like Venus, born
                Of entrails foaming like the sea.

                Yea, thou art dead. Thy buttocks now
                Are swan-soft, and thou sweatest not;
                And hast a strange desire begot
                In me, to lick thy bloody brow;

                To gnaw thy hollow cheeks, and pull
                Thy lustful tongue from out it's sheath;
                To wallow in the bowels of death,
                And rip thy belly, and fill full

                My hands with all putridities;
                To chew thy dainty testicles;
                To revel with the worms in Hell's
                Delight in such obscenities;

                To pour within thine heart the seed
                Mingled with poisonous discharge
                From a swollen gland, inflamed and large
                With gonorrhoea's delicious breed;

                To probe thy belly, and to drink
                The godless fluids, and the pool
                Of rank putrescence from the stool
                Thy hanged corpse gave, whose luscious stink

                Excites these songs sublime. The rod
                Gains new desire; dive, howl, cling, suck,
                Rave, shreik, and chew; excite the ****************,
                Hold me, I come! I'm dead! My God!

                      The first time I listened to real Rock music as a teenager was Deep Purple. I learned guitar listening and imitating Blackmore.

                      He's a Legend.

                      I am not the only teenager who was inspired by him- but like someone mentioned here- perhaps millions!

                      Malmsteen learned guitar by listening to Blackmore.

                          Dude that song is awesome -- I fast forward staight to the the slow solo and it has to be one of the best leads I've ever heard. When the second part kicks in it is just incredible!

                          Not that hard to master the first part....the second is where the challange starts

                            The solo's of Highway Star, Still I`m Sad f.i. are immensely Bach inspired - but to get deeper into this, you need to ask somebody who knows more about theory.


                            I don't know much about theory, but I'm a fan of baroque music.
                            Richie's songs definately have more than a slight touch of Baroque music, like J.S.Bach, in them.

                            If you want to listen to something by Bach connected to Blackmore, don't listen to big orchestra stuff. Just go for something with less instruments - like something with just one piano, violin or guitar (yeah, he also did some stuff for "guitars"!)


                            Off topic: listen to the 70ies dutch band "exception" (or ecseption or something like this) which plays classical music with "rock" instruments. Great!!

                              Move it up a half-step, and play all inversions. (Is that the correct term?) 2 note, 1 fret power chords.

                                Sweeet Child in time o' mine? ;-)

                                Song is just called "Child In Time"...absolutely gives me goosebumps, especially the Nobody's Perfect live version. Me and my wife hooked up over that tune :-D

                                I love Gillan's screams as well as Ritchie's playing.
