The man in black

Mr. Blackmore, that is. One of the guitarists who had a big impact on me (along with Tony Iommi, Steve Jones, Ron Wood, Pete Townsend, Ron Asheton, and Keith Levene).

Wring That Neck, Bilzen (1969)

16th Century Greensleeves, Munich (1977)

He may be a screwball megalomaniac with a bad Louis XIV hairdo these days, but the man can play. Hooray!
