Ritchie Blackmore was asked by The Rock N' Roll Reporter about chances of rejoining Deep Purple, to which he replied:
"I think if they would be interested, and our schedules aligned, I would be available for one show - for nostalgic reasons.
"But I don't think Deep Purple have any interest in that. They have their niche and are not into doing things like that.
"We are friends, I've been doing my music for 20 years, and they're doing their stuff for 20 years. It's probably not likely to happen.
"Also, their management wouldn't like it, even if it was for just one show. Their management wouldn't allow it, I'm sure."
