The rock band, Whitesnake was formed in England, 1978 by David Coverdale, former Deep Purple vocalist. Their early material was compared to blues rock, but later they moved toward a more accessible rock style. In the 80s they released series of UK top 10 albums, Come an’ Get It, Ready an’ Willing, Saints & Sinners and Slide It In. Slide It In was released in 1984 and it became their first platinum album.
In 1987, Whitesnake released a self-titled album and it was their most successful album worldwide, selling over six million copies in the U.S. alone. It included hit power ballads like ‘Is This Love’ and powerful, heavy-rockers like ‘Here I Go Again’. In 1989, the album Slip of the Tongue was released, but it was a disappointment, even though the record went platinum.
After a lengthy hiatus, the band returned in 2008 releasing the impressive Good to Be Bad. The band’s 11th album was released in the spring of 2011 under the name Forevermore.
