Hell yeah! I like Whitesnake.! What kinda question is that?@@ lol
David Coverdale is the man (even though he and his voice is aging... happens to ALL of us)
I'll go out on a limb to say those vocals probably aren't live. Anything of Coverdale I've heard live over the last few years he's sounded horrible. Love ain't no stranger sounds like they are playing it in the wrong key and way too fast. Aldrich is pretty stellar.
dude... he's 68 years old... you should be so lucky lolol
Great band, IMO. Followed them going way back, before 1987.
For high gain tones, the "Whitesnake" release is top notch, IMO.
Coverdale doesn't have the same voice (who would?!?) but one of the strongest rock voices ever, IMO.
Exactly, that's probably why he should stop touring. Metal in your late 60's generally doesn't work that well especially being a vocalist.
ALSO- has there ever been another singer that's aligned with so many amazing guitars!?!?!?
I'd rather go out on a limb to make that comment.
They were great when I was younger. Nowadays they only play those 2 or 3 songs on the radio.
Then again, it's like Black Sabbath, there's basically two songs they ever play on the radio.
if this was a poll I'd check yes
guys... I'm 56 years old and I played a big opening gig for a big band last night and some of the songs we did were Night Ranger's 'Don't Tell Me you Love Me', 'Dirty White Boy', 'Be Good To yourself', 'Separate Ways', 'Ballroom Blitz' and even Yes's 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart' and with our band members in their 40's and 50's those vocals are killers... let alone 68? sheeeeesh lolol
I'm not sure what that has to do with my post
Hell yes! Love Whitesnake. The pre-Sykes era is some often overlooked great stuff, as well.
The pre-1987 WS reminded me of Bad Company in a good way.
The ‘87 WS album with John Sykes was incredible and I wished there would have been more.
Since then, I haven’t given anything a second listen, as it seems to me that the songwriting is not there.
Players/performances are great, though.
The guys playing them have been pretty good too.
Going to see them April 22. Killer guitar players, great catalog, David Coverdale has an iconic voice... they were one of my favorite bands in the 80s. I know I had a poster or two on my wall. Never saw them live, so I'm happy to finally get the chance.
You said you'd "rather go out on a limb to make that comment" so I assumed (you know what that makes me) that unless you meant to say that you'd "rather go out on a limb THAN to make that comment" that I assume you agree with him that David Coverdale should probably stop touring... That's what that has to do with your post. Please forgive me if I'm wrong
Ah yeah, I thought you were referencing the radio comments.
Nobody has worked with more guitar monsters than Coverdale.
Sykes, Aldrich, Beach & Vai alone are almost enough to make that claim.
Throw in Hoekstra, DeMartini, Campbell & Vandenberg, and it's no contest.
Oh, and then there's two unknowns named Blackmore and Page who are pretty good too.
