Rainbow's Most Spinal Tap Moment

(antiMusic) Nightwatcher recently spoke with Joe Lynn Turner about the Over The Rainbow project (basically Rainbow with Ritchie Blackmore's son taking his famous father's place). During the interview Nightwatcher asked Joe about his most "Spinal Tap" moment and got far more than he bargained for! Here is just a snippet of that classic exchange!

Ritchie really was one of the biggest jokers of all. He'd always be pulling all kinds of tricks. Whether it was krazy gluing your room... He'd krazy glue the lock to your room, so you'd never be able to get your key in. Because once the glue sets, forget about it. One time, when Chuck Burgi was in the band, we went back upstairs from the bar to get into our room really quick. I think we wanted to do some drugs or whatever we were doing in those days. We put the key in, and it froze. When we turned it, it snapped right off. Then we saw Ritchie tip toeing down the hallway. We knew he had krazy glue'd the lock at that moment. All these things were happening, always. (Laughs) But there are so many stories, too numerous to count. It was really fun though, it was a blast. Once I was accepted into the band, I was part of the jokes on everyone else. Then, you were quote, unquote, legal to join in the fun. "Yeah, let's f*** with Roger and put all of his furniture in the bathroom." (Laughs) That was another good one. You take all the furniture in the room, put it in the bathroom, with the mattress in there last. Now you've got the mattress, and you have maybe a 6 inch space through the door that you can peek over, if you can even get up there to do it. Everything's in there, lamps, everything. So, when you go into your room, and go to turn on the lights, nothing.

These guys were crazy. They used to take sh*t and wipe it on light bulbs. Your room would look completely normal, you'd turn on the light, be on the phone to home, or be writing, whatever. Then you'd smell this foul, fecal matter. You'd be like, "What the hell is this?" Then you'd realize that there was this smear of crap on your light bulb. Once it heated up, it would just permeate the room. (Laughs) Incredible. It would go on and on and on. Like garlic on your toothbrush, in case you were going to pick up some girl. You'd run into your bathroom, go to brush your teeth, so you have a sweet smelling mouth, and there's garlic powder all over it. (Laughs) And you can't get rid of that. You'd be tasting it for 4 or 5 days. - more on this story
