Doogie White   with La Paz

Falkirk, Scotland    February 8, 2009


Well guys, fun in Falkirk for sure. I long held the view and have often written in forums that Doogie White was the best of all the Rainbow Singers because he had to work the hardest to do his own material and then cover all the other other guys who went before him. A big job for sure and one which he has ALWAYS carried off with great aplomb.

So the opportunity to see Doogie in a small venue, near Edinburgh was not to be missed. This was the very best 5 I've spent in a long long time. Doogie was in really great voice and sang all the old Purple and Rainbow like his life depended on it. It was really obvious that Doogie and the guys were doing this for the enjoyment value and that made all the more interesting. Doogie was fantastic in ever sense and at close range, you could appreciate his vocal ability fully. He can sing, oh how he can sing.

It's easy to understand why Ritchie wanted Doogie in Rainbow, he has a great range and power and a superb timbre in his vocal. Definately one of the best British Rock Singers around at this time. Sad that as yet he hasn't got the full recognition he really deserves, but it will come I'm sure.

The set, was a mix of Purple and Rainbow material covering various eras including of course SIUA which is close to Doogie heart. The band were great and played really well, the guitarist was no Blackmore, but then who is! He played very well anyway and did a mix of bits of Blackmore mixed with his own solos, which is always best and the bass/drums/keys were seriosuly tight and sounded great. All in all a really good night, well worth the drive home in the snow!

On arrival at the gig I went and introduced myself, and a drummer friend, to Doogie White, and we then spent the next 30 minutes in conversation with him, buying him a beer, before it was time for the show! This was a revealation for sure. Doogie is one of the most pleasant and most genuine people I've had the good fortune to meet in this business. A totally down to earth and entirely normal guy who enjoys his singing. A hard working musician, no front, no bull.

Respect due and respect given.
He is an entirely top guy barr none.

Thanks for a great night Doogie.
