This is an unauthorised biography that looks beyond the myth and
the rumours of this most charismatic but misunderstood of rock
Guitarists. Ritchie Blackmore's early days saw him mixing with
colourful characters like Screaming Lord Sutch, Joe Meek and Jerry
Lee Lewis. Then he became a defining member of Seventies legends
Deep Purple, creating the rock anthems "Black Night" and "Smoke On
The Water". Over the years Blackmore's moodiness and eccentric
behaviour, his three marriages and his clashes with the law have
earned him a reputation as one of rock's most abrasive figures. Yet
there are many unexpected sides to this complex man. "Black Knight"
has been written and researched by Jerry Bloom, a fan who first met
Ritchie more than twenty years ago and has followed his varied
career ever since. The result is a biography rich in detail and
full of surprising insights.
