Ritchie Blackmore Tried To Keep His Son From Using His Own Name?

(Classic Rock) Joe Lynn Turner has exclusively spoken to Classic Rock about Ritchie Blackmore's reaction to Over The Rainbow, the band featuring Turner (vocals), Jurgen Blackmore (guitar), Greg Smith (bass), Paul Morris (keyboards) and Bobby Rondinelli (drums).

"At first Ritchie was fine about it all. Then certain people two of them who are very close to him started to put ideas into his head. Then Ritchie suddenly became very antagonistic. Things got so bad that he insisted Jurgen his own son couldn't use the name 'Blackmore'. Jurgen's full name is Jurgen Richard Blackmore it says so on his birth certificate.

"So, he ended up sending a copy of that to Ritchie, to prove he had every right to the name. Thankfully, that's all behind us now, and everything's back on an even keel." - more on this story
