Blackmore's Night - Top Hits of Ritchie Blackmore's Most Romantic Band
Blackmore's Night - folk-rock band Ritchie Blackmore and his wife Candace Knightformed in 1997. By the way, even before that Ritchie had managed to become a legend of classic rock with such cult bands as Deep Purple and Rainbow. As for Candace, when they met, the woman worked at a local radio station and was a big Rainbow fan. What started as a request for an autograph turned not only into love, but also into working together... As it turned out, the two were fascinated Renaissance and her romanticism, and as a result they decided to make music together! And for good reason.
Candace and Richie's creative union represents that rare case when both partners feel each other perfectly on stage and in the studio!
