Classic Rock Pic From The Past: Ritchie Blackmore – 1981

Greetings from the Windy City: Photo Mark Weiss

This hair-raising shot of eternal Rockbrat favourite Mr Blackmore is priceless. What is going on here ? Surly Blackmore looks as miserable as all hell standing outside this dingy Holiday Inn, arms folded and hoping to get back inside his hotel room quick. ‘Here stand next to this white shit box’ the photographer asked. Sure why not ! Looks kinda blustery so whatever glue he used for the rug was doing an admirable job. This is circa 1981 by the way and taken by Mark Weiss who went on the be one of rock’s premier lensmen in the 80’s. Next !
