Finally a long overdue documentary about guitar virtuoso Ritchie Blackmore, a treat to all guitar music lovers, this film does not disappoint.

Ritchie Blackmore has always been a bit of mystery, a sort of untamed guitar player with brilliant technique and feel. And even though he wrote some of the most famous guitar riffs and solos in the history of rock music, he is still not talked about enough in my opinion. For example, whenever you come across all those Top 10 guitar players of all time lists, his name is never included That is why it's great that we got this film.

Most true Deep Purple, Rainbow and Blackmore's Night fans will already be familiar with most things mentioned in the film but it's still great to see the man himself talking about them. Ian Gillan is not included in the interviews as you might have expected but it was nice to see Jon Lord, David Coverdale, Glenn Hughes and others talk about working with Ritchie.

I only wish the film was longer so we could maybe learn even more about the inspiration behind his brilliant music and where and when certain riffs and solos were written and maybe take more time to get through all the songs and albums, other than that, it's great.

If you admire Ritchie Blackmore, you just need to see this.
