Ritchie Blackmore Should Focus On Deep Purple Reunion Says Bonnet

(Classic Rock) Graham Bonnet believes Ritchie Blackmore shouldn't waste time on trying to stage a Rainbow reunion - and he should instead try to settle his differences with Deep Purple.

But the vocalist believes there's an even better option available. He tells Classic Rock "If he's really intent on rocking out again, then Ritchie should contact Purple, bury the hatchet with Ian Gillan and get back with them.

"Ask yourself, what would be bigger? A Rainbow reunion with me or Joe, or Purple with Ian and Ritchie?" Read more here.
