Sweet satisfaction

Live track from a Whitesnake show in Glasgow in 1984 was posted today. This version of Ready an’ willing will be included on the 6CD+DVD Ultimate Special Edition of Slide it in that we profiled recently. This was one of the last Jon Lord’s shows with Whitesnake before leaving to reform Deep Purple.

Thanks to BraveWords for the info.

    Glasgow 84 was not Jon Lord’s last Whitesnake show, in fact it wasn’t even the last show of the UK tour. Jon’s final appearance was April 16th in Stockholm.

    I remember the local radio station played a chunk of this concert soon afterwards. I saw them at Edinburgh the previous or next (I can’t remember which) night.

    Glasgow 1984 was on March 1st.

    This was ONE OF the last Jon Lord’s shows with Whitesnake.

    The final Jon Lord show was, exactly as John Grogan wrote: 16.04.1984 – Stockholm or as DC said “Good Evening Las Vegas” 😉

    I saw WS with Galley, Lord, Murray, Powell and Sykes. The only redeeming factor was Neil’s return, he knew so much better what and how to play than Colin H. who was an ill fit at the best of times, he had no grasp of heavy rock (he’s a talented bassist for other music). Sykes was so overeager and overcharged at the Offenbach gig I saw, all his solos were horribly out of time. Galley tried to keep a straight face about it as did Jon, but they must have been wondering. If you are used to the solid timing of Glenn Hughes or Ritchie Blackmore …

    DP reunion or not, it was clear that this particular line up wouldn’t last much longer – and I for one had no regrets about its demise.

    And of course, Sykes’ contributions to the 1987 success are invaluable, but he had a steep learning curve. Before WS, I had seen him at the final Thin Lizzy gig in Nürnberg, they were an absolutely horrific shambles and Sykes also out of time in his soloing. Maybe DC liked his hair.

    @11 I don’t disagree. Sykes is not a guitarist I rate (personally) and I can imagine that he was chosen for his appearance as much as anything else. It’s not a great lineup but its still nice to hear these snippets of history.
