  • Ritchie Blackmore - gypsy?

    I am a really big Ritchie Blackmore fan and I have been wondering for a while if Ritchie Blackmore is a gypsy? I mean, there are several Deep Purple, Rainbow and Blackmore's Night songs that have a title about gypsies or some words in the lyrics. And every Deep Purple song related to gypsies have been recorded during the time Blackmore has been in Deep Purple.

    Do anyone know anything about this, if Blackmore in anyway is related to gypsies?

    He's about as much of a gypsy as the Band of Gypsies were.
    Punk rock is a work ethic.

      Also, the Grateful Dead weren't, at least in their early years, actually dead. Oh, and Floyd was more "British colored" than a true pink.

                    No, I'm pretty sure his wig is a gypsy.

                      That has been trained to stay remarkably still.
                      It's a good trick when you get it right, training a midget gypsy to sit on your head.

                        I heard that he badly mistreats his midget gypsy - stays still out of fear?

                          Why? Is his midget gypsy named Gillian?
