Richard Hugh Blackmore was born on April 14, 1945 in the English town of Weston-Super-Mare. The first instrument – an ordinary acoustic guitar – was presented to Ritchie at the age of ten by his father, and it was his father who insisted that Ritchie not only learned to strum on six strings, but also take classical guitar lessons.
