- I can't watch this clip because I'm on dial up however I have it on
video, in fact I have all of the Cal Jam stuff , even Nugent in the
late 70's. I really admire Glen Hughes voice, his new stuff is
inconsistant but when it rocks it's amazing. He's been recording for
years for a Japanese lable. I also was not a big fan of the Come
Taste the Band album, it's the only Deep Purple I don't have and
never will. Tommy Bolin didn't impress me at all, although he did
some fusion stuff early on but it was not my cup of tea. David
Coverdale is an ok singer but after meeting him I find it difficult
to enjoy his music. He told Robb and I that he had a cheque for a
million dollars in his back pocket while he was performing at
California Jam, his first gig with Deep Purple. The way in which he
said it bothered me, but then again it may be that I didn't beleive
him. He's a very typical insecure lead vocalist, the opposite of Ian
Gillan, who I also met and found him to be the nicest rock star I've
ever met. He bought me at least a half dozen gin and tonics and we
talked for a couple of hours. A truely amazing experience.
- We're all "back to basics" this fall. It's true that it would be nice
to chat about anything except politics and wars. We all have
different taste about music, but here we found that "Deep Purple" was
a lot liked by everyone (Glen Hugues too!). "Inconsistant" is an
english word that I will use instead of "weird", in the futur :)
Chatting is making short sentences and I don't know if our chatroom
allows the cam and the mic. Would be "live" cos it's a lot more like
a conversation: "Were you at that show?", "Really I tell you: it
rocked!". Long messages are not interactives. Chatting about hard
rock and metal of all kind could be really fun.
Coverdale...I've never felt an once of honesty in this guy. I won 5$,
cos I've always pretend that he had a perm. On the video, well we see
it. Ian Gillan was a chubby cute dood and when I saw them in 1985, he
was still a great...but great singer.
Recording in a Month LIPS? Start to stress, stress is good sometimes.
- Colin went to see it and said it was great, they played all of the
Machine head album plus Strange Kind of Woman, Speed King, When a
blind man cries, Perfect Strangers and a couple of newer songs as
well. Don Airey on keyboards was fantastic, (I'm not surprised)as he
played on so many of the great English recordings most people would
be shocked to realize. Steve Morse, we all know is a great guitarist.
I didn't go because I never saw the original all together and felt
that it would be a let down for me personally speaking. I really
dislike John Sykes, who is fronting Thin Lizzy, I think he's a good
guitarist but his personality is terrible. Just the lack of respect
he had for Chris Tsangarides by banging his exwife, and basically
causing him grief for a life time. Even though this woman in John's
own words "wanted it", doesn't mean you should go forit!!! I will
never forgive him. I also think that Thin Lizzy died with Phil
Lynott, and trying to reserect the dead doesn't work for me, it's a
copy band with a couple of ex members. Thin Lizzy had Scott Gorham
later on in thier carreer, as well as Jon Sucks, I mean John Sykes,
but more impressively, such guitarists like Gary Moore, Snowy White,
or Brian Robertson have also been members of Thin Lizzy. Gary Moore
being my favourite, probably Phil's favourite as well. Anybody
knowing anything about Lizzy would know that Phil and Gary were good
friends all through Phils short life, and did some side projects
together. Gary was one of the most influencial guitarists of the
80's, I remember Vivian Cambell (Dio) playing Gary's solo Dirty
Fingers, I know it as well!! It's known to us guitarists, like Eddie
Van Halen's Erruption is known.... When I met Gary at a festival in
Belgium, I had him play it for me in the change room, although he was
kind of bored with it , it was amazing to watch so close up. Going to
this show for me would be like going to see th Phantoms of Metal

> be shocked to realize.
In the 80's we had many, many concerts here at our Civic Center. Ozzy
played one time, I think it was "Ultimate Sin" tour or one of those.
Well, we knew where the bands stayed when they were in town and we'd
always go there after the show to meet and greet. So Ozzy's band all
went out to a local club after and partied. We were diligently
waiting for them to return. We met Jake E. Lee and Tommy Aldridge.
But it was getting late so we started driving out of the hotels
parking lot down a long dark road to the highway. We look and along
the road someone is walking toward the hotel and as we pass him, we
all do a double take because it's Don Airey! I stopped my car and
offered him a ride back because it was a long road and he was a bit
wasted after partying at the club. So he crawled into my backseat and
we took him to the door. He thanked us for our service and that was
it. (I never said it was a good story!)
I was sad to hear that Jon Lord would not tour with Purple any more.
I had just seen them that summer and it was a blinding show...seeing
them open with "Highway Star" is always a thrill! BLackmore was a
real dick to us at first when we tried to meet him but he quickly
became very nice when he realized we were fans and not jerks.
- Maybe everybody want to see the original bands, but I doubt it's
possible. I've just see on TV the Black Sabbath Reunion and I was
like @_@. Each songs that they played, I was singing...I was looking
at Butler on bass, and at Bill Ward and then...to all the founding
members and I was hypnotized by the energy that was in each songs. I
will rent Aerosmith's one.
Do you mean that this woman that is the reason why Forged in Fire
didn't sound like it was supposed to...has been hurted by a DP's
guitarist? Sequels?? Life is weird sometimes...
You didn't post your "Passion of Christ" review LIPS, LOL!! Let us
