Looking at the history of Whitesnake, it’s pretty clear that the band was David Coverdale’s first love.

He formed it in the mid 1970s, and reformed with new line ups several times since then.  The band tours even today.  They were a sweeping commercial success in the late 1980s, during the Rule Of The Hair Band.  But before Tawny Kitain, the make ups and break ups, before all the leather and hairspray, Whitesnake was a bunch of British guys with a soulful rock sound.  Check out this classic rare clip of the band covering The Beatles’ Day Tripper.  The fashion, guitar work and harmonies are pure 70s.

One Way Ticket baby!
