Good documentary!

About the "caucasian Hendrix", Mister Ritchie Blackmore, with whose music I grew up and lived all my life, I know all over Deep Purple, Rainbow and Blackmore's Night. I finally learned from this movie what it was actually why he left Deep Purple, for the second time, because he can no longer supported Ian Gillan, as a man and as vocalist. The truth is that we think and feel the same, David Coverdale and Joe Lynn Turner, are far beyond Gillan's worth. I liked Deep Purple, with Gillan, when I was young and teen. As an adult, I prefer Blackmore's Night. And, I totally agree with what Gene Simmons, from Kiss, says at the end: all who enter and play in bands, they do it for fame, money and chicks, Ritchie Blackmore has entered into this, for the music!
