I am a huge Deep Purple fan, but I think they are horrible live now because of their guitarist steve morse. Great guitarists (like Blackmore, Eddie VanHalen, Angus Young..), they steal the show live, and it makes the show great. I was front row recently at a Deep purple show and when steve played the solo in smoke on the water, I burst out laughing and left the show in disgust! What an insult! I don't think steve morse ever played a power cord in his life! No wonder Purple have to play these small venues. Its not fair to the rest of the band- they sound great and they deserve a better guitarist. Don't let Richie win- he can be replaced, but I wouldn't let steve CARRY Richies guitar. A month after I saw DP, I saw Blackmore live at Harpos Bar in Detroit, and he was 100 times better than Purple with morse. MY dream concert would be Deep Purple with Gillan, Paice, Glover and Yngwie Malmsteen and Malmsteens keyboardist. I forgot his name. Yngwies a huge purple fan, and it would be the best.
