I hadn't heard. I saw them on the Perfect Strangers tour many moons ago.

Posting Sweet Child in Time.......Nice! Someone knows them some Deep Purple.
That song is haunting, passionate, and amazing.

RIP John

Not a fan of most keyboardists, but I love some Deep Purple KB riffs! I love the classical style he often brought, as opposed to the common blues you hear a lot of. Imma Spotify some DP right now! (FYI DP stands for Deep Purple in this context, not the other DP you've heard of...)

I grew up learning Ritchie Blackmore's riffs on the guitar. A great time in music (for us old farts).
Seems like we're starting to loose some rockers at a fast pace now.
