Oh i agree But i guess im just a blackmore homer more than anything. Rainbow Rising was basically the 1st hard rock record i fell in love with and Blackmores sound .That instantly turned me into a fan and had me wanting to buy a white fender stratacastor and learn to play . I like Steve morse with the dregs and some of his solo stuff .
