Biography

Whitesnake are an English rock band, founded in 1977 by David Coverdale (formerly of Deep Purple). The band's early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple but by the mid 1980s Whitesnake had moved away from the early blues influenced hard rock to a more commercial heavy metal style. Whitesnake was named the 85th greatest hard rock band of all time by ... Read more in Amazon's Whitesnake Store

Customer Reviews

David still has great pipes and Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach were born to be Whitesnake guitarists.
M. B Harrop
On first listen, I thought there were a couple of good tracks... After having heard it a half dozen times now, I love the entire album.

THE BAND: David Coverdale (vocals), Doug Aldrich (guitars), Reb Beach (guitars), Uriah Duffy (bass), Tim Drury (keyboards), Chris Frazier (drums & percussion).

THE DISCS: (2008) Disc 1: 11 tracks clocking in at approximately 59 minutes. Disc 2: 7 live tracks clocking in at approximately 42 minutes (recorded songs taken from the DVD "Live: In The Still Of The Night" from 2006). Also on Disc-2 is a 4 minute video "Ready To Rock". Included with the discs is an 18-page booklet containing song titles/credits, song lyrics, one band photo, and thank you's. Recorded at Casa DALA (Los Angeles) and Snakebyte Studios (Lake Tahoe, CA). All songs written by Coverdale/Aldrich. Label - SPV / Steamhammer.

COMMENTS: I approached this album with hesitation upon release. I had to know if Coverdale and Company could still push it to the limit. Or, if they'd gone limp and flooded this disc with sappy power ballads geared toward their female audience and perhaps the dentist's office. With that being said - I was pleasantly surprised by this album. 8 songs rock hard. 3 songs soft. As an old school rocker who grew up in the 70's, I'd like this album a tad bit more if it had only one or two ballads. Coverdale, plain and simply, sounds old on these sentimental songs (57 years old in fact). The softer songs include "All I Want All I Need" (for some reason I keep picturing creepy old Herbert from "Family Guy" singing this), "Summer Rain" (the worst song on the disc - pure Vermont sap), and "Til The End Of Time" (a bluesy and folksy album closer - even though the album doesn't close on a hard rocking power chord... this is a beautiful acoustic song and Coverdale makes it work). The rockers are glorious - and there are a lot of them.

This album is exactly what you would expect from Whitesnake. Great vocals, ripping/wailing guitars, pounding drums. There are eight rockers and three power ballads. All thriller and no fillers at all.
The album has a fresh energy to it that brings Whitesnake into 2008 with a kick.
I highly recommend this album to all who love to rock.
CRANK UP YOUR SOUND SYSTEM and enjoy......

Being a hardcore Deep Purple fan for 35+ years I knew who Whitesnake was WAY before mainstream America discovered them complements of shallow MTV posing. And by that statement you can tell I was a little disappointed in the hair metal poser direction Coverdale took the band after the late 70s - early 80s line-up broke up; when they changed from a pretty good blues-rock band to just another Led Zep/Sabbath clone band. While I'd never say it wasn't fun to listen to, I really got tired of his shallow posing vanity show and it got to the point where I simply couldn't watch him and preferred just to listen to the CDs instead!

And, after hearing the first track on "Good to be Bad" I was even more disappointed...heck, it's such a BLATANT rip-off of the Allman Bro's classic "Whipping Post", with a different chorus, it's nothing less than disgusting!! The verse phrasing, even the organ itself is such an exact copy I expected to hear David sing "sometimes I feel, sometimes I FEEL..." at any moment!! While I do think it's a catchy tune and definitely listenable I thought, wow...here he goes ripping other bands off again, not an original idea in his head!!

But, as the other tracks played I became more and more impressed and track #5, the title track, sunk its hook in me on the very first listen!! So now I have to say that I am impressed and heartily agree with my fellow reviewers...Coverdale and the boys have produced a heck of a come back album!! In fact I wouldn't hesitate to say it's one of the best comebacks I have ever heard!!! And I'm telling everyone I know about it too!

WHITESNAKE'S Good To Be Bad includes some of their best new material in quite a while, of course American release of new material has been somewhat sparse of late. Coverdale and the current lineup featuring the guitar duo of Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach are solid, slick, and polished. The songs are tight and include all of the classic "Snake" influences of hard rock, blues, ballads, and all in between. Very good lyrics, melodies, and musicianship throughout, whether it be the hard rockers or ballads. I am a Whitesnake fan and have been for quite a while and admit to some bias, but I highly recommend this CD for anyone who loves great heavy duty rock played in a very polished and professional way, yet still fun and exciting to listen to. Keep it up guys.

After seeing the band live four short years ago, I wasn't sure what kind of new material Coverdale and the gang could produce. The live performance put me off, mostly because of DC's strained, screechy vocals.

It must have been an off night.

This album rocks. I mean really, it does. If you are a fan of 1987's "Whitesnake", this will take you right back there. It's not modern sounding at all, and that is brilliance of it. There are actually places on there where you could swear John Sykes is still with the band. Terrific solos, LOTS of guitar work. See? Some musicians STILL know how to play! How refreshing.

Sit down, Nickleback. You, too, Fall Out Boy. The big boys are back, in a big way!

Whitesnake has never been about deep, intelligent lyrics. The songs are filled with cliche' driven, romantic, "cock" rock. Just bluesy, soulful Zeppelinesque grooves.And what's wrong with that? Feel-good rock is about air-guitar glory and escapism. David's voice has lost some range, but he controls it nicely and handles his vocals with style. Don't worry though, he can still hit the necessary high notes.

Good album. Can't wait until their touring mates Def Leppard hits with SONGS FROM THE SPARKLE LOUNGE next week. They should bring that show to the states!
