I think there are influences from every era of Whitesnake.
With a sold out arena tour, Def Leppard return to the UK and Ireland to deliver what they do best. Slick, polished, note perfect shows with visuals to die for…
Coming on stage to the backing tape of ‘My Generation’ by another institution The Who, with the immortal line “I hope I die before I get old”, it has to be said that Sir David of Coverdale is looking quite spritely.
Last year a grey cloud hung over the Whitesnake camp following the departure of guitarist Doug Aldrich. Thankfully, a year on that cloud has turned to a healthy purple glow, thanks to some prompting from David Coverdale’s’ missus. What had started as a possible Blackmore/Coverdale venture, eventually collapsed and the legendary vocalist was ready to let it go. But wife Cindy intervened, and hubby done as he was told. And The Purple Album is now reborn and ready to fly. Back in 1973 Coverdale was given the hugely daunting task of replacing the irreplaceable Ian Gillian in Deep Purple.
Everything is under wraps and top secret in that department. The only thing that I can tell you is that its is really cool. Its great, straight ahead rock&roll. Blues inspired rock that you have known and grown to love coming from Whitesnake. We are not going to hit anybody with a formula change and move to smooth jazz. Working with David so far has been great, he is just an unbelievably great guy

Here it is folks…. The best album of 2011 winner is FOREVERMORE by WHITESNAKE!! “What?” I hear you saying… “But it’s only March, how can he do that?” Well, I guess there’s a possibility of a better album coming along some time this year but man it seems unlikely so for now just stick with me…
