Overview of Rainbow

  • Rainbow’s music was partly inspired by elements of medieval and baroque music[8][24][25] since Blackmore started to play cello for musical composition.[20][23] During this period, Blackmore wrote a lot of Dio’s vocal melodies, particularly on their debut album.[26] Shortly after the first album was recorded, Blackmore recruited new backing musicians to record the second album Rising (1976), and the following live album, On Stage (1977).
  • Rainbow’s early work primarily featured mystical lyrics with a neoclassical metal style, then went in a more pop-rock oriented direction following Dio’s departure from the group.[1] Three British musicians joined in 1979—singer Graham Bonnet, keyboardist Don Airey and then-former Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover—and this line-up gave the band their commercial breakthrough with the single “Since You Been Gone” from their fourth studio album Down to Earth.
  • Rainbows appear in heraldry – in heraldry the rainbow proper consists of 4 bands of color (Or, Gules, Vert, Argent) with the ends resting on clouds.[90] Generalised examples in coat of arms include those of the towns of Regen and Pfreimd, both in Bavaria, Germany; and of Bouffémont, France; and of the 69th Infantry Regiment (New York) of the Army National Guard (USA).

  • A rainbow isn’t really a “thing” and it doesn’t exist in a particular “place.” it’s an optical phenomenon that appears when sunlight and atmospheric conditions are just right—and the viewer’s position is just right to see it.

    How Do Rainbows Form?

    A rainbow is an optical phenomenon which involves three processes: reflection, dispersion, and refraction.

    Is There a Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow?

    According to an Irish legend, a pot of gold can be found at a rainbow’s end.

    What Causes a Rainbow?

    If you had no idea at all about what a rainbow is or what causes it, you might actually believe some of the legends that different ancient cultures have created to explain it.Rainbows are among the most beautiful of nature’s displays.

    What happens in the water droplets?

    The sunlight shines on a water droplet.As the light passes into the droplet, the light bends, or refracts, a little, because light travels slower in water than in air (because water is denser).Then the light bounces off the back of the water droplet and goes back the way it came, bending again as it speeds up when it exits the water droplet.

    What makes a double rainbow?

    A secondary rainbow appears if the sunlight is reflected twice inside the water droplets.Secondary rainbows are fainter, and the order of the color is reversed, with red on the bottom.Credit: Leonardo Weiss via Wikimedia Commons.

    When can you see a rainbow?

    A rainbow requires water droplets to be floating in the air.That’s why we see them right after it rains.The Sun must be behind you and the clouds cleared away from the Sun for the rainbow to appear.

    Why is a rainbow a bow—or arc?

    A full rainbow is actually a complete circle, but from the ground we see only part of it.From an airplane, in the right conditions, one can see an entire circular rainbow.

    Why Is a Rainbow Curved?

    Technically, a rainbow is the upper half of a circle of light, which centers on the antisolar point, the point directly opposite the Sun, as seen from your perspective.The lower half of the circle, however, is usually not visible since the water droplets hit the ground before it can form.You may be able to see a circular rainbow if you have a high vantage point and the terrain sharply drops off in the direction of the rainbow, allowing the rain to fall down farther and reflect the sunlight from a lower angle.It is also possible to see a circular rainbow from an airplane.

    Why Is the Area Below the Rainbow Brighter?

    While most of the sunlight is concentrated at an angle of 40-42°, some of it is also reflected in the range of 0-39°.Crucially, the angle also determines the extent to which the sunlight is dispersed and refracted.For example, a ray of light that is reflected at 0°—right back where it came from—is not dispersed or refracted at all.

    Why the colors?

    Sunlight is made up of many wavelengths—or colors—of light.Some of those wavelengths get bent more than others when the light enters the water droplet.Violet (the shortest wavelength of visible light) bends the most, red (the longest wavelength of visible light) bends the least.So when the light exits the water droplet, it is separated into all its wavelengths.The light reflecting back to you, the observer with the Sunlight coming from behind you, from the water droplets will appear separated into all the colors of the rainbow! Violet will be on the bottom and red on the top.

    History of Rainbow

  • In 1974, Blackmore took cello lessons from Hugh McDowell (of ELO).[22] Blackmore later stated that when playing a different musical instrument, he found it refreshing because there is a sense of adventure not knowing exactly what chord he’s playing or what key he is in.[23]
  • In 1980, the band headlined the inaugural Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington in England.
  • In 1983, Rainbow was also nominated for a Grammy Award for the Blackmore-penned instrumental ballad track “Anybody There”.[33] Rainbow disbanded in 1984.
  • In 1984, Blackmore joined a reunion of the former Deep Purple “Mark Two” line-up and recorded new material.

  • In 1994, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and President Nelson Mandela described newly democratic post-apartheid South Africa as the rainbow nation.
  • in 1998 using a similar method but an argon ion laser beam.[53]
  • In 2002–2004, the Hughes Turner Project played a number of Rainbow songs at their concerts.
  • In 2009, Joe Lynn Turner, Bobby Rondinelli, Greg Smith and Tony Carey created the touring tribute band Over The Rainbow with Jürgen Blackmore (Ritchie’s son) as the guitarist.
