David Coverdale Talks “Whitesnake: The Rock Album,” Possible Retirement Tour

Monday, June 22nd

Rock & roll hall of famer David Coverdale can’t wait for the world to get back to normal.

“SO I CAN DO MY RETIREMENT TOUR” David screams as he talks to the big show about COVID—19 cancelling live concerts this year. David had to cancel Whitesnake’s 2020 tour right before the pandemic hit because of hernia surgery, which he still hasn’t been able to do. “My surgeon has recommended I wait a little bit longer” he says.  

David checked in to talk about his latest release. “Whitesnake: The Rock Album” which is out now on CD, White Vinyl & digital at www.whitesnake.com.  The 16-Track collection spotlights revisited, remixed and remastered versions of the band’s best rock songs.

It includes the previously unreleased song “Always The Same.”

“It’s just a total labor of love for me” David says about reworking his catalog, “to put a fresh coat of paint on the albums I made 40 years ago.”

“It’s been really hard for me getting a sonic consistency with different albums…it’s really exciting, I got blue birds flying out of every orifice!”

WHITESNAKE: THE ROCK ALBUM is the first release in the band’s “Red, White and Blues Trilogy,” a series of fresh, new collections organized by musical themes that will include: Love Songs (red), The ROCK Album (white) and The BLUES Album (blue).

David founded Whitesnake in 1978. Before Whitesnake, Coverdale was the lead singer of Deep Purple from 1973 to 1976, replacing Ian Gillan. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Deep Purple in 2016.
