After almost four decades in existence, and given their immense popularity all around the world, it’s rather surprising that, to this date, there’s never been a full depiction of David Coverdale‘s endeavors beyond his DEEP PURPLE start. Thankfully, this omission’s been corrected by now that famous Canadian rock writer Martin Popoff has released a tome titled “Sail Away: WHITESNAKE‘s Fantastic Journey” that tells the story of the band which rose from a one singer’s blues vision to the trend-setting behemoth.
The author has interview pretty much everyone connected to the group, including their priapic-joking leader, his original twin-guitar motor of Micky Moody and Bernie Marsden, bassist Neil Nurray, drummer Ian Paice and producer John Kalodner, so there’s hardly an area that remains unhighlighted – save for the future as WHITESNAKE, with a new guitarist in place, are gearing up for a new record in 2015. Must be a riveting read.
