DAVID COVERDALE’s coil is ready to STRIKE ‘InTheStudio’ for the 25th anniversary of the 1987 WHITESNAKE album

I usually don’t post press releases but this is Coverdale after all…

Dallas, TX – March 20, 2012. North American syndicated rock radio show InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands celebrates the 25th anniversary of one of the best-selling hard rock albums in history, Whitesnake ’87. After eight studio albums in 10 years Whitesnake had managed to keep hard rock relevant, in an ever- changing ‘80s rock market in the UK, while America had yet to fully embrace the band. Bandleader/singer/songwriter  David Coverdale was sidelined with a potentially career- ending chronic sinus infection midway through this project.  Coverdale reveals to show producer and host Redbeard just how serious his health scare was.

“He (the doctor) put a small flashlight into my mouth… and said, ‘This is the worst sinus infection I’ve ever seen, I’m surprised you could even talk’.  I came back and prepared for surgery and a 50% chance I would never be able to perform again.”

Three million dollars in debt and having just recovered from throat surgery, Coverdale put it all on the line.

“We shot three videos in two weeks, “Still of the Night”, “Here I Go Again”, “Is This Love” and things just went nuts.”

InTheStudio is syndicated on over 50 radio stations throughout North America. The WHITESNAKE/ InTheStudio program will air the week of March 19th.

  1. That is an amazing David Coverdale story for certain. I’m happy that sinus infection didn’t sideline his career… I couldn’t imagine the 80’s Hard Rock & Heavy Metal explosion without him and Whitesnake.

  2. Straight fo the heart is a killer Whitesnake song from that era with a fantastic guitar solo!

  3. I remember him at the time having “nodules” in his throat and there was some doubt as to whether he would sing again – there was a long delay between Slide it In and 1987….
