Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Dubbed the 'man in black', guitarist, Ritchie Blackmore found fame with Seventies rock giants, Deep Purple, then walked away from them to create Rainbow, only to abandon them and form another band in 1997 - Blackmore's Night. Read how he handed his resignation in the middle of Deep Purple's 25th anniversary tour. This book shows how during his career, he became involved with Lord Sutch, Joe Meek, Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee Lewis, Freddie Starr and Tom Jones. It talks about his love/hate relationship with Deep Purple's lead singer, Ian Gillian, his moodiness, antics on and off stage, his reputation as a 'hire and fire' merchant, his three marriages, police chases, imprisonment and passion for football.
