Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow A Dream Come True To David Keith

(Classic Rock) Ritchie Blackmore's new Rainbow band drummer David Keith says that he has always hoped to get the chance to play rock music with the Deep Purple guitar icon.

Blackmore has lined up three rock shows for next year, during which he will play hits from his career with Rainbow and Deep Purple. Keith is joined in the lineup for the shows by bassist Bob Nouveau, Stratovarius keyboardist Jens Johansson and Lords Of Black vocalist Ronnie Romero.

Keith works with Blackmore in his folk project Blackmore's Night and he says he's thrilled to be part of his return to rock. Keith tells Deep Purple Italia: "There is a section of the Blackmore's Night live show where Ritchie puts on the Strat for a few songs, and we crank up the rock'n'roll. The energy on stage is amazing, and I often found myself thinking, 'Man, I wonder if he's considering doing some rock shows, because this is f***ing fantastic.'

"I guess you could consider the last few years with Blackmore's Night my audition. Ritchie approached me one night recently after a show, and casually mentioned that he was thinking of doing some rock shows, and that he'd like me to play them if I was interested. I was in shock. I thought, 'He's really going to do this, and I get to be a part of it.' Unbelievable." Read more here.
