he literally wiped his ass the the guitar and it sounded good
Ritchie Blackmore: a god, a genius, one of the inventors of lead guitar, the best guitar player of all time. I'll never forget the first time I heard a ritchie's solo.
Steve Potts
Ok I'm drunk but..... did he just play guitar with his arse?
Tree Funk Jones
Someone literally said hendrix can't control feedback when he pioneered just about every move Ritchie is using here. Love both guitarists but give people their credit where it's due. If Jimi lived to 72 all of this would've been outdated. Still both great guitarists in their own right. Amazing playing here
Strat Pack
My favourite Ritchie axe - the Black '68 Strat with maple cap neck. Fender are doing a custom shop version of this but its about 5000 dollars!
Guilherme Cardoso
How the hell did the guitar stay in tune (or almost)
This video would have been perfect if the cameraman or person focused more on Ritchie
Blue Racer
Never saw anyone play guitar with their ass before this.
I've always wondered how he stays in tune doing all of those whammy bar tricks without a locking nut.....
Alan Hamaker
Happy Birthday, Ritchie. You're the greatest. Thanks for posting this video.
Rick S
My God, what a sound!
The only difference between Malmsteen and Blackmoore is that Malmsteen knows to play guitar.
SaBi NuKi
da King!!!
Long hair, long solo....
Kenneth Robinson
Am I crazy, or did the first part of the solo (starting at around 1:40) remind anyone else of By Tor and the Snowdog? I kept expecting Ian Gillan to come in singing, "The battle's over!! And the dust is clearing!!"
Konrad Plank
Happy Birthday #70 Master! One of creators of metal! The true Mister Riff and The former Deep Purple and Rainbow

Richie Blackmore--- Deep Purple Solo----

da Master!!!

To have his lead singer, the mediocre Ian Gillian bongo for him , and the lean Ian paice play beyond human capability, while he controlled , owned and destroyed that strat is a lesson for all guitarists ! He cannot be touched! Can he?? Be honest!! Jimi, then ritchie ! Enuff said
Ritchie blackmore para mi fue el mejor guitarrista del tiempo superando a Jimmy hendrix, por sus grandes ejecuciones y tecnicas variadas siendo la base del Re quinto actual, excelentes ejecuciones.
Richard RJ Blackmore
My favourite recorded concert of DP

Francisco Maykall
Very much better than hendrix
Vivie .B
Whoever on this thread says that Hendrix was better than Blackmore needs their head examined...'NUFF said! He was nothing but a drug addict guitar player, BLACKMORE was and still is THE MAESTRO....again 'NUFF SAID!
Juan Jose Paredes
Gran maestro con una guitarra
One word 'ART'.
Greg Boardman Band
rock on
james mason
you have to be one tough strong drummer to keep up with him 8 to 10 minutes
NuclearBunny970 thats where kirk got the idea from....
Chris Jimenez
Everyone here saying that Jimi couldn't control feedback, listen to Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock and listen to some live versions of Machine Gun, then come back and say that again. 
blackmore the genius of melody
SaBi NuKi
the MASTER!!!
jumanji 1980
great sound engineer!
JJ Finkelstein
Marshall 200's right?
julio herrera
Give to him all praises and all glory.
He is the Master! The God of The Guitar!
Marcio Abad
Lo mejor de todo son las notas que toca, pues es el sonido lo que reconforta mi alma, que sea anticuado o moderno o lo que quieran, cuando lo escucho no necesito verlo. Gracias Ritchie!
Hendrix has nothing on him- at all.
Odio los comerciales de YouTube, pero gracias a esta plataforma eh podido ver joyas de video como éstas.
his playing reminds me of yngwie malmsteen a lot
Nika Guliashvili
He's great guitarist but I don't like when musicians break guitars, I'm sorry!
lady space
Oh, Ritchie <3
There are a number of strict criteria when judging the best guitarist this/that/whomever. 1. Creativity; 2. showmanship; 3. stage presence; 4. back- catalogue output; 5. effortless multi-musical-genre excellence; 6. career longevity; 7. influence; 8. eccentricity; 9. mystery; 10. high intelligence; 11. high articulation. There's more, but I'm too stoned to list any 5555555. Who is the ONLY guitarist of ALL time to fit ALL of those criteria?
Kodiak and Grizzly Bears
Perfect guitar technique!!
james mason
strat nut ..awesome
Jacob Mcdermott
I believe that Ritchie Blackmore was the height of the electric guitar showmanship. Better than Hendrix
What’s his pedalboard like ?
Cube Hire
I listened to a lot but never saw Deep Purple. Those were unique techniques. He made it sound decent using the soul of his foot and his butt.
Jelena Babic
I've never seen any guitar hold it's tuning together better than this fender.
Tia Yanger
he shud've been  inducted in the rock n roll hall of fame from before \m/
Jürgen Siefert
Best guitar player i´ve ever heard. Better then Hendrix!!
Ryan Cascardo
Is this from Made in Japan?
Todd Sloan
In '73 and '74 I listened to quite a bit of this band but knew none of this good work...!
Kodiak and Grizzly Bears
He's still the best axeman at 71.
Kodiak and Grizzly Bears
Blackmore THE GUITARIST ON THIS PLANET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kodiak and Grizzly Bears
Hendrix was useless! No technique!!
Kodiak and Grizzly Bears
Best guitarist in the world!! By far!!
Rory Gallagherfan
There were (are) five masters of the stratocaster: Ritchie Blackmore, Rory Gallagher, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, and Robin Trower. Of the five, I would consider two completely unique (not necessarily the best) Jimi Hendrix and Rory Gallagher.
Epic !
Alright...who do I gotta kill to get a copy of this show!
Evan Davidson
very unconventional him...but, of all time?...not for me...Hendrix just toasts him as far as I'm concerned...and all the modern technical players...he is one of the most influential for sure....and definitely some of the greatest riffs of all time...and some of my favorite songs...highway star, space truckin, lazy, burn,..all stellar...but as far as just straight guitar shredding,...I'm not always feelin it...he has some incredible moments...I appreciate his ability to just go out there...far out..but.....I'm a huge fan of him, but not greatest guitar player of all time....when you have jimi, jimmy page, jeff beck, chet atkins, tommy emmanuell tosin abasi, Guthrie govan, yngwie,'s just a shark tank....
Eh? Of course he's a poser, it's rock n roll - and Hendrix and Bach...both posers too, and fucking awesome both! If you've got it, flaunt it!
Stanislav Kozliakovsky
"Leo Fender made Stratocasters with an extreme angle for the tailpiece..I believe it's nearly 45 degrees, and setting it as such makes all the difference. If done so with the right amount of springs, the trem unit will always return to being perfectly in tune. I didn't believe this until the guy who fixed by guitars showed me. I called Fender to tell them, and they knew absolutely nothing about it. They just assumed that tremelo units went out of tune"
Kurt Sherrick
Brian May said no one was doing what Blackmore did with feedback and the wild guitar playing and he was doing it before Hendrix hit the scene. We forget now we are older that they we're performing to young people that like Jon Kay said at 15 we all are Born to Be Wild. Ritchie is whipping up at 15 if you didn't like a performance like Ritchie did on the video you don't like Rock and Roll. And Rock is a attitude and this is performing with a attitude to a crowd with a attitude. And it sold Millions of Albums.

Zack Brannon
right handed hendrix
Patrick Michels
It doesn't look scalloped to me. It looks like Ritchie's fav black Strat maple neck until he destroyed it on stage in Boston in 1973
gary pilgrim
Ritchie Blackmore say no more !!!!!
Daniel Alejandro
@kelsonlyqt I've downloaded this show from internet.. I love it.. but also I hate it.. it is soo anoying that everytime Ritchie begins a solo..cameraman (or Director) shows Ian's face, or Jon's hands, or Roger..or anything but Ritchie.. sooo f****ing anoying :( but the show is amazing, anyway!
Darrell Cummings
Well I see where EVH got most of his ideal playing from.

I've seen two handed tapping before but this is the first time I've seen two butt cheek tapping.
Tenho profundo respeito a todos guitarristas em geral,Ritchie Blackmore em minha concepção é uma lenda viva a nivel de tocar uma guitarra mais algo que ja esta contido em seu espirito,o cara tem o dom de dominar a situação e sem denominados recursos que a maioria dos guitarristas se prevalecem.Vlw.
Евгений Графский
более осмысленные импровизации нежели у лд
Chris Cooke
haha got some them drugs. great music purple
This man knows how to play his guitar as if he's picking off a 'violoncello' - fucking amazing!!
Awesome - Ritchie is able to turn his guitar into a violoncello instrument...!
He is perfect noise guitarist, as well as Tommy Bolin. And both are Hendrix's fans of course.
Aydin Mikayilov
Better Call Saul- Se3, Ep7 brought me here.
Rofelino Rozano
ritchie is great guitarist, but he cant produce wonderful music like jimmy page
If you know how to setup it, a old school six screw tremolo keeps in tune almost as good as a Floyd or Kahler.
