Правда ли, что известный вокалист Питер Голби (Peter Goalby) принимал участие в записи
альбома Rainbow "Down To Earth"?
Слухи о том, что Питер Голби действительно записывался для альбома Rainbow "Down To Earth" (в частности,
на треке "Since You've Been Gone"), появились после одного интервью Ричи Блэкмора,
в котором он упомянул Питера в следующем контексте:
"...We found he couldn't sing above a top A... So we sent him
Участие Питера в первых сессиях записи альбома подтвердил Роджер Гловер:
"Pete Goalby did indeed sing on SYBG, but not in France. There was a demo
session at Prentice Wood, my old house, with the Moulin Rouge mobile studio,
some weeks or so before we went to the chateau. It was an odd time because
my first wife and I had split up but it was during one of those pathetic
attempts at reconciliation and I had access to my house again for a while.
A year or so before, I had built a substantial music room there, detached
from the house, and ideal as a rehearsal space; it had a toilet and a
snooker table, both obvious assets. We had arranged the session as a test
session and most of what I remember about it is that after we had done SYBG
(not a great version) there was a long jam with Ritchie, me, Cozy and Don.
I have no idea if those tapes still exist, I don't think I have any,
although, thinking about it, I may have a reel to reel of that jam
somewhere. (I won't look for it, don't ask!)
Anyway, a few weeks later we went to the chateau and within 36 hours my
task, as producer, was to inform the hapless Pete that his services were no
longer required, something that no one got around to doing before we left
the UK. He wasn't happy.
Then of course we started recording the album without a lead singer,
auditioning about half a dozen before getting Graham Bonnet. I memorable
time and one that will get it's own chapter in the book!"
