Well, I love both bands, but I think if I had to choose it would be Deep Purple, mainly because of the vast number of their songs that I really love.

But Rainbow are a fantastic band too. Especially gotta dig the Dio era.

Rainbow.. Although I haven't really heard enough of Deep Purple to judge fairly.

Ritche Blackmore IS A FUCKING LEGEND!!!!

MUWHAHWHAHWHAHWAHHWHAWHAHWHAHWHAHWHAHWHAHAHAA :D

A mate gave me a few songs from Rainbow so then I liked it so much I bought the Greatest Hits. Now I heard "Smoke On The Water" after I got the Greatest Hits of Rainbow and started buying songs from Deep Purple....It's hard to choose between the two... hmmmm not sure. I love them both! :D

i don't think there are any rainbow songs that are heavier than

Smoke....black night...fireball....knocking at your back door...under the gun...speed king...call of the wild...flight of the rat...highway star

blackmore's self-indulgence (rainbow ) was based more around melodies and songs that sounded more poppy - i surrender, long live rock n roll, can't happen here, all night long, since you been gone, street of dreams and can't let you go...

his selection of vocalists - ronnie james dio, graham bonnet and joe lynn turner were all on the gentler (more feminine) top-end of the scale...none of these had the sheer rock vocals of gillan/coverdale....

the albums themselves - at least the vinyl and cd copies i have are definitely mixed toward the vocals/guitars and keyboards...you can hardly hear the bass on many of em

whereas the bass/drums were very evident on purple recordings

I think Dio is MUCH better than Coverdale vocal wise but coverdale is amazing live with the way he performs and interacts with the crowd!


Dio is better than Coverdale, but Ian Gillan is much better than Dio and Coverdale together.

Purple i think, they were amazin live, and have 4 albums that are classics, not many bands have that privilege, Rainbow is a classic band imo, and Blackmore, a guitar god


Loser in the end!!!

ok.. i'll add another bit to this

as someone who has seen all the purple offshoots live
rainbow - down to earth tour
whitesnake twice 81 and at donnington
rainbow at bingley hall
gillan at reading
and purple (mk II reunion - perfect strangers) 85 - knebworth

i can tell you this:-
rainbow....they were a bit lifeless live - bonnet was a bit lacking in personality, charisma and crowd interraction...plus - apart from smashing the fender - the man in black stood at the back and played
whitesnake...he had paice and lord with him and marsden...and whitesnake were cool and bluesey - songs like fool for your lovign and ain't no love in the heart of the city were good
gillan was awesome...no easy way rocked...and bernie torme played betetr than blackmore does live
purple - the were great at knebworth...the mkII lineup buried the hatchet...but you could see that gillan and lord didn't get on with ritchie
roger and paicey just got on with it

I didn't say he's a lousy guitar player, I said he's a jerk, and everyone who's interested in Blackmore/Purple/Rainbow knows that.

By the way, you're really ugly, you know that?

Excuse me? Am I seeing this right? How dare you call Sarah ugly?!?!?!

Very pretty girl she is, more then I can say for you. Don't even cross me man, you don't want to go there. Try me, if you dare!

You can go calling me names if you want, like I care...just don't go calling my friends names. WTF has she done to you for you to call her that? How low can you sink man.... :-S

Don't rise to it, remember this guy's 28 years old and feels the need to resort to calling a girl half his age ugly, there's obviously something wrong there.

Talk about an easy question.

Deep Purple without question.
Far superior band.

Rainbow had nothing like Jon Lord...'nuff said.
