I have been Whitesnake fan for 25 years now. The band was formed in 1977, so I missed almoust complete first decade. Anyway, I started to listen to them during the 80's, when a version of their older song "Here I go Again" became a chart hit. It was in 1986 when I really discovered their music. I was only familiar with their name earlier, but I somehow thought hard rock was something out of my world. Well, Whitesnake turned that upside down. I found that rock can be really melodic, on contrary of screaming and making noise as I thought it is earlier. I also realized what is rock star supposed to be - David Coverdale :-) I was a teenager during the 80's and I really loved David's hairstyle. I was trying to copy it, but I ended up something between Gizmo and Iron Maiden's mascott Eddie. Not to mention I had orange-red hair:))
Anyway I love their music.
As I was saying, I really liked their 80's music. They released two of their best albums during that period if you ask me. Self titled Whitesnake from 1987 was packed with hits. One has to be honest, there were a lot of older songs on the album, they were just arranged and produced in a different way. Slip of the Tongue in 1989 proved their superstar status. Older fans might not agree with me, I know there are a lot of them thinking that the real raw power band produced in the 70's. I didn't like official releases in the 90's , but they kept up the good work doing gigs around the world. I saw their gig in Vienna, Austria in June last year. They supported Judas Priest, and that were supportes by current line-up of Thin Lizzy so it was a great day for every true rock fan from Middle Europe to come to concert.
