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.

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.

In 1987, the band released their self-titled album, which featured the hit songs "Is This Love" and "Here I Go Again."
