Coverdale interviews

David Coverdale being interviewed for rheinhaus.com

David Coverdale was a guest on US syndicated radio show In The Studio on the occasion of 25th anniversary of the eponymous ’87 album, The conversation meandered far enough to touch his departure from Purple and management problems of the early Whitesnake days. You can listen to it online at In The Studio’s website (requires flash player).

Some time last year he also gave an interview to German TV, where he talks about his connection to that country, says ‘hi’ to his granddaughters, and speaks how the reunion with Bernie Marsden came together. You can watch the interview at rheinraus.com.

Thanks to Blabbermouth and Daniel Bengtsson for the info.

    To be precise: The TV interview was conducted in November 2011 for the “EMP Rock Invasion” series on the German DMAX channel. The ‘esteemed’ Mr. Bengtsson could have found this out by doing some research on his own, for a change, instead of repeatedly stealing my news I post as ‘Lioness’ on the Glenn Hughes forum – LOL!

    Will there be a Anniversary of Live In Japan or are they ignoring that again?

    Like a guy wrote some time ago about him and his little son who went along with his fathers passion for DP. :

    The kid has a high sensibility for the bullshit factor.
    This after comp[aring Live In japan and ROTD. : )

    I know : )

    But what do I care?

    Apart from still wanting his autograph…..

    He really lost my respect when he pulled that NAZI trick way back when I watched him live in 1994 in Tilburg with Vandenberg.

    Seeing him betray “photographerfans” in the audience to the security bu using that “I m looking into the crowd gesture” above his eyes…….

    Next to that is my grieve he betrayed the Old Snakes.
