wow `78 snakebite well that's gotten the little grey cell thinking...

Welll that song is GREAT but the part I love the most, and don't laugh about this is right at the 2 min 39 sec mark to 3 min and 20 sec mark where I believe John Lord is doing the keyboard bits it sounds so 70's but it makes me smile with David's breathing vocal mixed in the background.

This one I have ALWAYS LOVED, it reminds me of Burton Cummings:

Jon Lord was such a special treasure, he had a very unique way of making keyboards sound great

Here is another one which shock some folks, but it is a GREAT song and is one of David's best vocals in my opinion because it sounds very warm and natural:

"Trouble", the new video from former Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden, can be seen below. The song, which features a guest appearance by Whitesnake, is taken from Marsden's new solo album, "Shine", which was released on August 18 via Provogue as a double-LP, CD and digital download.

That is such a cool tune, Bernie and David belong in the same band, with Lord gone, they really are wasting time with a few good years left, they really should make it happen

Anyone remember Adrian Vanderberg playing with Whitesnake?

He has a new band called Vanderbergs Moonkings. Their debut album is good!

I guess I'll give them their own topic.

First I have heard that. Was Blackmore a guy who always wanted to win or something?

This is a GREAT song, when I was a kid growing up in Ottawa I would listen to this song all of the time while riding on the bus. Great times:

I believe David presented this to Jimmy during the Coverdale Page sessions, but Jimmy felt uncomfortable playing it, perhaps because it sounds like Hendrix?

This article came out the Day after David Coverdale confirmed the release of "The Purple Album".

Whitesnake's David reveals the late Jon Lord wanted Deep Purple bandmates to work together again

David Coverdale has revealed that he and former Deep Purple bandmate Ritchie Blackmore discussed the possibility of getting back together after the death of Jon Lord in 2012.

And although the idea didn't come to fruition, it may have informed Coverdale's decision to record an album of his Purple-era tracks with Whitesnake.

The singer - who fronted the Mklll and lV version of Purple from 1973 to 1976 - confirmed the launch of The Purple Album yesterday, describing it as "a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago."

Coverdale says in the latest edition of Classic Rock, on sale now. "The tragic loss of Jon made me finally realise that life is too fucking short to hold animosity, bitterness and resentments.

"So I decided to reach out to Ritchie to share the sense of grief and loss of Jon with him, and to express my gratitude to him for bringing me on board Deep Purple."

"During the conversation we did discuss the idea of getting back together in some way, which was Jon's wish."

He says he didn't pursue the idea because: "After several discussions with Ritchie's manager I felt I didn't share their vision of the project. I sincerly wished them well and respectfully withdrew."

But Coverdale adds: "During this time I pulled out the albums and started messing around with some of the songs - rearranging ideas, adding a new bit here and there."

"The bonus for me was I rediscovered my love for that time and the work all of us achieved together. Magical times."

Looking back on his stint with Purple, he reflects: "I felt I had to prove myself. I knew I had been given an incredible opportunity and didn't want to blow it."

"But, my God, I was so young and naive. Thrown in at the deep end to sink or swim. The two sci-fi lyrics I wrote for Mr. Blackmore, Burn and Stormbringer, I'd never written like that before. But then again I'd never been given music like that before."

Burn and Stormbringer both appear on Whitesnake's The Purple Album, released on May 18 in the UK (May 15 in Europe, May 19 in North America).
