Blackmore's Night interview


The new Blackmoreís Night DVD, Paris Moon, is a terrific set that captures this band at the height of its powers. Itís taken from a show in Paris last year, a country that band has never played before. Legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore is in fine form, leading the band through the Renaissance-inspired material and dazzling on several instrumentals. Vocalist Candice Night holds her own nicely throughout, standing out on their cover of ďDiamonds and RustĒ and ďArielĒ, a song with a bit of interesting history.

I spoke with Candice recently about the DVD and hereís a portion of the interview:

Morley: The Paris Moon DVD is simply excellent. I really liked Castles And Dreams, but it seems the show has just kind of gone to another level.

Candice: Oh thank you. Yeah, it just seems with this bandÖitís interesting cause, it feels so strange. Itís like once we do something at a certain time or a certain level, we feel weíve really presented the best we could possibly do at that point and then weíll do something the next year or two years later and weíll look back and say, wow, it keeps growing in leaps and bounds, you know, depending on how comfortable we all feel with each other and of course that all comes in time. You donít just realize it until you reflect on the other things that youíve put out there.

Morley: Sure. Itís surprising that thereís all that untapped potential thatís in there thatís just waiting to come out eh?

Candice: Itís wonderful actually. You know everybody in the band brings their own their little part really to the band, as well. So depending on who we have in the band at the timeÖeverybody kind of brings their own identity to it. So it always sort of keeps us on our toes and always adds their own individuality to whatever incarnation of the band is for that year or that moment.

Morley: The one thing that really stuck out though Candice, that begs the question is did Ritchie really sign off on this because he is clearly smiling during the first song (laughs).

Candice: (Laughs)

Morley: It was like, what is going on here?

Candice: Occasionally we have to hide a few things from Ritchie to put it out there. No, he does smile occasionally. (laughs) But you know what? Thatís what makes those smiles so special because they are so rare. And you know that when they do come, theyíre well deserved because heís not one of these people who smiles often, so you know, itís either very genuine or alcohol induced. (laughs) Itís good that we can joke around with each other like that on stage too. Because I was telling someone the other day, itís like what you see on stage with Ritchie and myself, itís basically how we are at the dinner table. You know if we go out to dinner, we joke around. We poke fun at each other. We just have that kind of really fun relationship where weíre really, really comfortable. So what you see is very real and very honest on stage. I donít think we could really be anyone else. So you know, thereís no posing. Thereís no choreography. Thereís no dances. Thereís no us becoming somebody else because itís a stage persona. Itís just how we are, so you know, so when we joke around like that itís just us being normal. Our normal selves. And all of our normal friends in our inner circle know us for that anyway, so itís funny to get the reactions from the rest of the world when they see things like this; the untouched, and sort of like the moody, difficult dragon for so long, so when you can the poke the dragon itís got to be a lot of fun to watch. (laughs)
