Rainbow's Joe Lynn Turner and Ritchie Blackmore Reuniting This Year?

(Classic Rock) Former Rainbow singer Joe Lynn Turner reportedly said during a concert this week that he and bandmate Ritchie Blackmore will be working together again this year - even though recent attempts to cut a deal fell apart.

The vocalist talked up a Rainbow reunion during 2014, saying the time was right, that Blackmore deserved a "blaze of glory" for his rock career, and that crunch talks were to take place in December that year.

On Saturday, after his solo show in London, Turner reportedly said: "He's itching to do some rocking, and we're going to get together in the fall. Ritchie is really, really ready to rock. He still has the chops too."

He continued: "I'm not sure if it's going to be a Rainbow reunion, or a bunch of remakes - which I destest, because you can't improve on perfection. But that's what's happening." Read more here.
