The Turner Sandwich!

I think I found new OTP.

Yes, I am reasonably sure that Ritchie does indeed kiss his arm.

Oh my goddddd I think I finally sleuthed out when/where the David Coverdale/Ritchie Blackmore backstage brawl took place. It was after a Rainbow concert in Munich when Cozy and Don Airey were still in Rainbow, so by process of elimination, it must’ve been:

16.02.1980 Olympiahalle Munich Germany

As for why David was in Germany – at the time he was still married to his first wife Julia and maybe he was with her visiting friends and family (and crashing Rainbow concerts). It would seem that she was the woman with him who was trying to pull Ritchie off him!!! Who cares about McGregor/Mayweather, can we get Coverdale/Blackmore Round 2 on PPV? 

Deep Purple (and adjacent) ‘wife swapping’

I’ve joked before about the rampant girlfriend/wife-swapping going on in Deep Purple and what I like to call “Deep Purple adjacent” bands (bands with significant member overlap with Deep Purple: Rainbow, Whitesnake, and post-Ozzy Black Sabbath). It is truly astonishing. It’s like all these guys wanted their bandmates’ girlfriends.

Vickie Gibbs left Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath) for Jon Lord (Deep Purple). Her twin sister Jacky married Ian Paice (Deep Purple).

Karen Ulibarri dated Tommy Bolin (Deep Purple) then married Glenn Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath).

Wendy Walters first married Aynsley Dunbar (Whitesnake), dated Ian Paice (Deep Purple) and later married Ronnie James Dio (Rainbow).

Jennifer Brooks was married to both Craig Gruber (Rainbow and John Sykes (Whitesnake).
