Bluebirds flying out of every orifice

An interview with exuberant, name dropping bon vivant David Coverdale was featured on an episode of The Eddie Trunk Podcast that was posted on December 3. It was meant to promote Back to the Bone, but a long and entertaining interview covered a lot of history. My favourite bit is probably about Cozy Powell, who showed up one day to persuade Coverdale to join the Michael Schenker Group, but “after a night of fun and frolicking” ended up as a drummer in Whitesnake. Or is it the story of him reconnecting with Ritchie? (And for what it’s worth, he shares JLTs conviction that Blackmore will be rocking one day again.)

He has also mentioned that Whitesnake is working on a new album with release some tome in May-June next year, and a US tour to follow.

The interview starts at around 20:20 into the podcast and continues for about 50 minutes.

    Check out 3 more ‘Deep Purple’ related programs on the site. Steve Morse, Glenn Hughes and Joe Satriani. Glenn Hughes chats about Ritchie needing to do something Rock oriented among other things. Joe Satriani talks about his time in Purple and how he thinks Steve Morse is perfect for the job and other things. Steve Morse talks about his solo stuff and Purple and other things.

    Eddie is a great interviewer and Coverdale is a master interviewee. Looks like another ‘Blackmore to play ROCK’ cheerleader has risen along with JLT. Funny how 3 EX Blackmore singers are all neck and neck throwing out their bait. JLT, Glenn Hughes and now Coverdale. Maybe this ain’t such a bad idea? Ritchie collaborating with all of his EX singers on a NEW hard rock/heavy blues album. JLT, Coverdale, Hughes, Doogie, Bonnett, Gillan and (if somebody can find him) Rod Evans.
