Official Ritchie Blackmore:
Premiering on the official Ritchie Blackmore Youtube channel today (7/19/22). Ritchie Blackmore – On Showmanship
We used to work under Don Arden, who was our agent. He’s the father of Sharon Arden, who is Sharon Osbourne. He had a reputation; I don’t know if you know about the reputation of hanging people out of windows. He could frighten people. He was known as like a mafia guy, but I never saw it. But there was always that atmosphere of you don’t mess with Don. Otherwise, there could be a problem.
