Gary Graff of Billboard has interviewed the legendary Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple and Rainbow fame regarding Blackmore’s Night, and his future.
Here is an excerpt:
Ritchie Blackmore has caused a stir with his planned return to rock next year. But the Deep Purple co-founder and Rainbow leader asserts that will be short-term, and his primary allegiance is still to Blackmore’s Night, the medieval folk-rock group he and wife Candice Night have fronted since 1997.
“My main concern is Blackmore’s Night. That will be ongoing for a long time, hopefully,” Blackmore tells Billboard.
