He's Not All Bad,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Knight: Ritchie Blackmore (Paperback)
A great read from start to finish, very well researched too. I think I read another review on here stating there was a lack of insight, but I don't think so. The media portrays him as moody and difficult and perhaps he can be at times, but there is a sensitive side to Mr Blackmore that will surprise many. There is one story in particular that is very, very touching and reveals a tender side to Ritchie that most are unaware of. Gillan doesn't have a kind word to say about him, but then he's doesn't strike me as a particularly pleasant character himself. To sum up Ritchie I would say he's a prankster, perfectionist, virtuoso and entertainer - we don't get rock stars like him any more. Deep Purple are a shadow of the band that they were without him.
