Mmmm, harmonies

Yesterday, June 9, Whitesnake played a gig in Glenn Hughes’ neghbourhood — Beverly Hills, California. You can guess what happened.

And before you start speculating — no, Whitesnake is not making a stop in Long Island on this tour. you-know-whom will be in Munich when Whitesnake plays in Long Island. Still ain’t happening.

    wish Tommy was with them playing on YKOM…
    people in certain parts of the world are just too lucky when it comes to concerts and special things that happen during those gigs :>

    Oh yes they are. I have tickets to see whitesnale in Westbury New York….on Long Island. Here’s the kicker, Purple is playing the same venue that same weekend…..yes snake and purple playing same venue, same weekend on Long Island. My dream is Ian Paice and Blackmore , ok even Hughes, join in on the MK III bandwagon.

    Btw, I’m seeing DEEEP PURPLE TOO!

    Full marks for You Keep On Movin’-Too bad this didn’t happen at last year’s tribute to Jon.
    On the other hand,not even the 2 original vocalists can redeem the utter shambles of Lay Down,Stay Down (Far and away the worst song on The Purple Album )

    It’s a fairly normal LA commute, I live in Topanga these days and had a meeting in downtown LA, took an hour there and an hour back, traffic not too bad.

    Going from PV to Beverly Hills takes slightly longer, depending on how bad traffic on the notorious 405 Freeway is… can easily take twice as long.

    But then again I don’t have the impression Glenn needs to be in an office downtown by 9AM 🙂

    And PV is a nice place, high up with great views, and you get to see the gray whale migrations in early spring.

    …their chemistry has lost nothing…great going!

    I loved You Keep On Moving! Both Glenn and David sounded good on this one. Lay Down, Stay Down I think was a strange choice for a duet, especially if you let your whole band sing it together with the special quest… what’s the point then?

    I find it incredible that we get a performance like this, which is actually rather wonderful, and people think it’s cool to moan and groan about it (post 4 and 7). David is singing well at this stage of the tour (handling the DP material rather better than expected) and Glenn is still doing what he does, like no one else can.

    It’s just joyful and they work brilliantly together.

    Lovely to see them together! YKOM is great, but Lay Down Stay Down is awful. Worst track on the album. Just noise to me.

    @4 what is wrong with this crap?! it might not be the best version live,but I’m pretty sure the experience live is different.Jon Lord would have loved join “this crap” and playing some great old tune,which he was part of…. you should check yourself,before you start calling great musician crap or just go back and listen some real crap.

    YKOM sounds rather good.LDSD was crap IMO (but I didn’t like the cover on the WS album anyway)
    David seems to be in good shape,his voice sounds better today…hope it will last.
    Anyway,it’s great to see them together again!

    What do people mean, Lay Down Stay Down a bad song on Burn? It’s a great rollicking and rollicking Rock ‘n’ Roll song, with some great powerful vocals going on, backed by Blackmore who’s on fire and Lord and Paice having fun.
    Just like many other songs off of Burn (might just take your life; the weight-The Band, what’s going on here; Fire-Jimi Hendrix, Mkstreated; heartbreaker-Free, what’s going on here; highway chile; Jimi Hendrix, Sail away; superstition, jeff beck) Lay down stay down borrows the great riff from MOUNTAIN ‘Blood of the Sun’ https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EHjhn8VQ_WU

    Oops, might just take your life’s intro is from CHEST FEVER, by The Band

    Adrian @ 27 – Thanks for the info on Blackmore ‘borrowing’ those riffs, well maybe Lord also. I didn’t know about those two songs & now of course they are added to the plethora of many others. Sheesh, the way things are going with Purple & Zeppelin ‘borrowing’ so much. my youth is slowly being eroded. Two of my favourite bands sullied to a degree, for life perhaps! I am going to have to start following Justin Bieber & One Direction soon. Cheers.

    Jeff Summers says:

    Wonderful!! I saw them do both songs live together with Mk III and IV and they are equally as good together now 40 years later. Long may it continue… Believe me, they don’t make em like this anymore 🙂

    It’s cool to see those two sing together again but on the other hand it’s toe-curling how they over-egg the pudding here. Less is more, really!

    Two Words: Tommy Aldridge! He’s a beast on drums especially when he bangs on drums with his bare hands, He’s brilliant! ♡

    I still prefer listening and watching Live in Japan 1975.

    Angela…………….Ian Paice

    Tommy is ok but a basher without swing can never do a DP song right

    JohninNJ4you says:

    I think it sounds great ! The music is absolutely solidly played and you can tell the band was fired up due to the fact that Glenn was there … and ol’ Cov and Glenn sound great, as always ! Glad to see them do this song for the first time since the mid 70s ! Hope they do more ! Even an album !

    @Rock Voorne ……….Ian Paice is my favourite drummer,Tops in my eyes, DP is the most beautiful rock and roll band in the universe!
