Whitesnake (UK)
#1
yup...there had to be a thread for these guys. surprised there was not.

Whitesnake is as you know are the brain child of former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale and formed Whitesnake after the split of Deep Purple. being formed in 1978 (well, yeah).

while Whitesnake is very known for their 1987 hit self titled album even Slid It In they did have a a great following in Europe with their earlier, more Deep Purple-sounding records like Trouble, Lovehunter, Ready an' Willing, Come an' Get It and Saints & Sinners. all pretty good albums.

of course Whitesnake might be all David Coverdale but Whitesnake had it's fair share of well known Musicians, Mel Galley (ex-Trapeeze), Neil Murray (ex-Black Sabbath), the late Cozy Powell, John Sykes, Adrian Vandenberg, Steve Vai, Rudy Sarzo, Tommy Aldridge, Doug Aldrich, Vivian Campbell and last the late John Lord and Ian Paice, the guys who really tied those early Whitesnake albums to Deep Purple.

Past 6 months or so I've spun the s/t a lot. It's a fantastic record. Yeah, it's got a lot of the radio singles on it, but they are good songs + John Skyes? Come on.

i've got no beef with the 1987 record, it was my introduction. it has some great songs on it and i still listen to it...thanks to getting it back with the recent CD Reissue (i had accidentally broke my original copy back in 2008).

found out about this last night. i hope it's a solid record, i have not kept up with any of Whitesnake's modern stuff, almost wanted to buy the Forevermore album when it was a new release at Walmart, but never did cause i did not know if it was worth getting. but i'll see with this one.

Quote:WHITESNAKE has set "Flesh & Blood" as the tentative title of its long-awaited next album, due in early 2018 via Frontiers Music Srl.

WHITESNAKE's David Coverdale told Ultimate Classic Rock earlier in the year that the band has "never had such an immense amount of positive material" for a new release. "I've worked, for the first time as writers, with [WHITESNAKE guitarists] Reb Beach and with Joel Hoekstra," he said. "Because when Joel came in, we were doing 'The Purple Album', of course. And not only do we have great Coverdale/Hoekstra and Coverdale/Beach songs, but we have the three of us combining [as writers]."

He continued: "The songs are fucking excellent. We have eighteen or nineteen extraordinarily positive, potent, juicy classic WHITESNAKE songs, from balls-to-the-wall [rockers] to blues, to epics to ballads. It's kickass. It's definitely got me fluffed up."

WHITESNAKE will celebrate the release of "Flesh & Blood" by embarking on the "Juke Box Heroes Tour" next summer with FOREIGNER and Jason Bonham.

According to Coverdale, another project that is in the works is a DVD that was filmed during WHITESNAKE's tour in support of the group's latest disc, "The Purple Album". That effort, which was released in May 2015 via Frontiers Music Srl, was billed as "a re-imagination of classic songs from Coverdale's time as the lead singer for DEEP PURPLE's Mark III and Mark IV studio albums." Coverdale was DEEP PURPLE's frontman from late 1973 to early 1976 and sang on the albums "Burn", "Stormbringer" and "Come Taste The Band".

Coverdale told Ultimate Classic Rock about the upcoming DVD: "It's fucking fantastic. It's kickass. To promote it, we've put together WHITESNAKE as you've never seen them before on a video for 'Burn'. It is un-fucking-believable. It's a full-production video. The people at Warners who have seen it, they're mindblown by it. We worked with a young, hip gunslinger Canadian director called Tyler Bourns. And he's kick-fucking-ass. He did all of the videos with us on 'The Purple Album'. He's the head of our video creative ops and a great guy as well."

WHITESNAKE's self-titled album, also known in some countries as "1987", which was certified multi-platinum and featured the smash single "Here I Go Again", turned 30 this year and Rhino celebrated the occasion by releasing four new versions, including an expansive boxed set.
