Coverdale buys rights to Whitesnake and Northwinds


Another Swedish magazine — Rock’n’Roll — has a 6-page David Coverdale and Whitesnake feature in issue #4, 2019. In the interview David said that he recently has bought the rights for his two first solo albums Whitesnake and Northwinds from the now defunct Deep Purple’s management companies. He also mentioned that his favourite Whitesnake albums are

  • Ready An’ Willing
  • Come An’ Get It
  • Good To Be Bad
  • Forevermore
  • the upcoming Flesh and Blood

Thanks to our editor emeritus Benny Holmström for the info.

    Some of old covs best work. Both contain great songs and his voice back then was excellent

    @1 Totally agree: I reckon Northwinds is his best work post-Purple. Soulful, bluesy, just excellent.

    Coverdale had nothing to do with Highway Star. Was written well before he was even a thought for Deep Purple

    Indeed. I treasure those albums to this day. Great work. I just wished he went on with this kinda stuff, soulful songs, piano, brass, female background singers that suit his voice so well – very enjoyable.

    Poor Coverdale, having to sing every night mainly songs from albums he doesn’t rate. When was the last time he played anything off Come An’ get It?

    These albums, in particular David Coverdale’s Whitesnake pull Whitesnake’s knickers down and spanks the living daylight out of Trouble before greasing up to kill Lovehunter. Take your snake and listen to the Coverdale vocals . Thank you
