He was born on September 22, 1951, in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, England, and grew up in Redcar. He first gained recognition in the early 1970s as the lead singer of the hard rock band Deep Purple before embarking on a successful solo career and forming his own band, Whitesnake.

     Coverdale's career began in 1973 when he replaced Ian Gillan as the lead vocalist of Deep Purple. He recorded three studio albums with the band, "Burn," "Stormbringer," and "Come Taste the Band," before the group disbanded in 1976. During his tenure with Deep Purple, Coverdale developed his unique style of blues-based rock and roll, which would later become a signature sound of his own band, Whitesnake.

     After Deep Purple, Coverdale formed Whitesnake, which quickly gained popularity in the United Kingdom and the United States. The band's first album, "Trouble," was released in 1978, followed by "Lovehunter" in 1979. In 1982, Whitesnake released their self-titled album, which contained the hit single "Here I Go Again." The song topped the charts in the United States, propelling the album to multi-platinum status. The album also included the hit singles "Still of the Night" and "Is This Love."

     Throughout the 1980s, Whitesnake continued to release successful albums, including "Slide It In" and "Whitesnake." The band's lineup changed frequently, with Coverdale being the only constant member. The band's music continued to evolve, incorporating elements of glam rock, hard rock, and heavy metal. Whitesnake's live performances were also legendary, featuring impressive guitar solos, powerful vocals, and a high-energy stage presence.

     In the 1990s, Coverdale continued to release solo albums and worked on various side projects. He also reunited with Deep Purple for a short period, performing on their 1984 album "Perfect Strangers" and their 1987 album "The House of Blue Light." In 2003, Coverdale released an album titled "Whitesnake - The Silver Anniversary Collection," which celebrated the 25th anniversary of the band's formation.

     Coverdale's music has influenced many artists in the rock and roll genre, and his powerful vocals and stage presence have made him a true rock icon.

WHITESNAKE Band Information:

Whitesnake is a British hard rock band formed in 1978 by the former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale. The band's music is characterized by bluesy, heavy rock riffs and Coverdale's powerful vocals. Over the years, Whitesnake has undergone numerous lineup changes, with Coverdale being the only constant member. Despite these changes, the band has remained a popular fixture in the hard rock scene, with a loyal fan base and numerous hit songs.

Whitesnake's early years saw the band experimenting with a sound that combined heavy rock with blues and funk influences. The band's debut album, "Trouble," was released in 1978 and showcased Coverdale's powerful vocals and the band's bluesy guitar riffs. The album received critical acclaim, but it was the band's follow-up album, "Lovehunter," that really put them on the map. Released in 1979, the album featured the hit song "Walking in the Shadow of the Blues," which became a fan favorite and remains a staple of the band's live shows.

These songs showcased the band's talent for crafting catchy, hard-hitting rock anthems with memorable guitar solos and soaring vocals.

Whitesnake's success in the 1980s was due in part to the band's collaborations with other popular musicians of the era. In 1987, the band released their self-titled album, which featured the hit songs "Is This Love" and "Here I Go Again." The album was a massive commercial success, and its success was in part due to the inclusion of guitar virtuoso Steve Vai, who played on several tracks. This album remains one of Whitesnake's most popular releases and is often cited as a classic of the hard rock genre.
