I needed to see Mr Lord one last time, and set off for the show
asking myself if would it be worth it...well, of course it was!
The band were very tight and Ian Gillan was in magnificent form,
with When A Blind Man Cries the highlight of the first
half, especially when Ian sang "from his soul". The whole song
was just perfect Purple.
arrival of Mr Lord was brilliant, coming after Don had done
a reasonable solo spot (the Star Wars theme was a bit dodgy!).
I think it's now time to move on. Steve has been in the band
long enough not to have to play a show comprising 90% Mark 2
