Ritchie Blackmore: A Life In Vision, Hardback Book

Ritchie Blackmore: A Life In Vision Hardback



Deluxe photo book compiled by Blackmore biographer Jerry Bloom-the perfect companion to his 2006 biography Black Knight, as it portrays Blackmore's career with photos and memorabilia from 1958 to the present day.

Not only does it feature a large selection of never seen before images but following years of research by Bloom, it also includes the most comprehensive gig list ever published of Blackmore's pre-Deep Purple career between 1958-67 with over 300 gigs detailed from his days with The Outlaws-backing Gene Vincent and Jerry Lee Lewis; with Screaming Lord Sutch & The Savages; Neil Christian & The Crusaders; and even going back to his earliest bands such as The Vampires and The Condors.

Augmented with memorabilia from the time, the book also plots Blackmore's career in photos, through Deep Purple, Rainbow and Blackmore's Night along with narrative by Bloom that puts the visual elements in context.

This is a limited edition of 1,000 copies worldwide in a bespoke, custom-made presentation box with a set of prints.
