Ritchie Blackmore Rock Return May Be A Joke Says Graham Bonnet

(Classic Rock) Former Rainbow frontman Graham Bonnet suspects Ritchie Blackmore's promise of a return to rock could be a practical joke. Blackmore last month announced he'd temporarily set aside his folk music career for a short run of rock shows in 2016. The singer, who appeared on Rainbow's 1979 album Down To Earth, would love to reunite with the guitarist - but admits it's unlikely.

Bonnet tells Metal Mythos: "I don't know if it's fact or fiction because I know what Ritchie's like. He's a great practical joker. It wouldn't surprise me if he just said this on a whim.

"But I think if he was going to get a band back together, I think he would put the original Deep Purple lineup together. That's what I would imagine rather than Rainbow. But I don't know because sometimes he's hard to read." Read more here.
