Rock News for Tuesday 12th January, 2010

*Possible Exclusive!!!*
Is Blackmore back to ROCK?!

OK, I guess don't get too excited as I'm sure it's nothing but, just maybe there's a slim chance that Mr Ritchie Blackmore may have seen the light ... and is ready to rock again!

Today on Ritchie Blackmore and Blackmore's Night website I noticed a very recent posting for January that said simply just this ... "Back in the Studio with Pat Regan at this time!!"

If you know Producer Pat Regan's background, he's worked with Warrant, Mr. Big, Kiss among others and previously with Blackmore on both Rainbow's "Stranger In Us All" and Deep Purple's "The Battle Rages On."
I've got to say this could be something special!!!
