RITCHIE BLACKMORE Impostor Fools Hospital Officials In England

According to a posting on the BLACKMORE'S NIGHT web site, a man that was admitted to the Cardiac Care Unit of Southampton General Hospital in Southampton, England last week gave his name as Ritchie Blackmore and proceeded to sell his autograph and tell folks that he was the "original" Ritchie Blackmore that used to be in DEEP PURPLE. He also managed to take advantage of local charities by posing as Ritchie Blackmore. "We understand this is not the first time this man has posed as Ritchie and he has done this in several areas around the globe," the posting adds. "If you have any information about this man-please notify the Southampton, U.K. police."

In other news, the German TV show "Die Burg" will be using the BLACKMORE'S NIGHT song "Lorelei" as their theme song. "Die Burg" is a reality show that brings people back to the Renaissance times to see how they would live back then. The soundtrack for the legendary story of Siegfried, the origin of the "Lord of the Rings", "Die Nibelungen - The Ring Of The Nibelungs", will include two BLACKMORE'S NIGHT songs: "Shadow of the Moon" and "Gone With The Wind".
