Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays
Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed them.
Because it's now in print, Bill, you are the official Intellectual Property Rights holder to the term "Blackmore's Syndrome". Congratulations! There's no trophy, cash prize, or trip-for-two, but you are 100% accurate. There are just some people - in music and elsewhere in life - that just don't play / work well with others. Is it ego, insecurity, control, lack of empathy ... who knows? Some are just what my Dad used to call "overly self-impressed", and can't bend or flex to accommodate someone else's way of thinking.
All that said, there's no denying that both Blackmore and Akkerman are first-rate guitarists, so we'll just enjoy that and leave the trash curbside.
