Ritchie and I would meet for a third time when I was assigned to interview him for the cover of Guitar Player [September 1978]. Blackmore was holed up at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood and when I first entered his room the shakes began. I didn’t know which Ritchie I was going to get: the rude one or the cool one.

Thankfully, I was greeted by the latter. He was remarkably open, funny and emotionally engaged. Maybe he was simply in a bright mood that day and knew that I was there to interview him for the cover of the biggest guitar magazine in the world at that time and treating me like some second class citizen wouldn’t be in his best interest.
