    Not a bad song, but hope production will sound better in a final version.
    Sounds like someone in the production chain likes a lot compression, like tons of it :>)

    I dunno how many million times Glenn has recorded the same song… Is he in competition with Ac/Dc (ok they got better ones) or Coverdale to get published in the G. Book of Records ?

    Have a fun week-end everybody

    I really liked DD with John Corabi and saw them more than once. They’ve really gone downhill since (me! me! me!) Hughes joined and I won’t be bothering going again.

    That‘s almost sabbathy, the way that lava riff in the verse is slowed down, sounds like a Seventh Star outtake or something from the other albums with Iommi. I like it a lot, good chorus too, and that is not your typical „Glenn does funky hard rock“ at all.

    Glenn has cut back on his vocal histrionics and just sings. Aldrich had mentioned in an interview that that is something the Daisies want him to do.

    You name me someone who was already around in the early 70ies and still sings with that much ease in a top range. Glenn is a wonder of nature. Actually he has gained pleasant depth – the one thing where a young Coverdale was always ahead of him – as an old man.

    A new chapter in a band doesn’t always mean they have gone downhill but they are reaching out to new audiences.
    Glenn is a winner and the live shows are made of new Material and less of cover songs and that was always his ambition to take DD to the next level.
    Peace ✌️

    @ Uwe: Agree.

    @ Peter J.: You may or may not like Glenn’s music. But I really don’t think he tends to record the same song over and over again. Got most of his offerings solo, with bands or as a guest and they do differ a lot in fact – from very heavy stuff to much lighter funky things and then some…

    @7 Uwe, you are spot on! Agree on all you say here.

    Peter J @3
    Please can you gives us examples to justify your comments.
    And if he did some recycled stuff do you think it’s fair not to include every single musician for doing so.
    Let’s have some positivity in life about people’s effect and talent so life can be better.
    Our beloved Ritchie once broke down a lot of DP songs and what inspired his tunes in an interview so sometime you can’t reinvent the wheel.
    Peace ✌️

    If there is one allegation you can make against Glenn then it is how his output post-Purple has been too versatile for most people (I’m in the minority, I like it when ex-Purplites defy expectations, it’s part of what makes the band so interesting), he’s done pop,















    rock ballad classics,



    and heavy metal.


    Not to forget timeless movie soundtracks!


    If there is a word (and a curse) for Glenn, it’s eclectic. But each and every damn time you hear it’s him, no mean feat.

    My thoughts on Glenn…

    He is indeed singing well and sounds much better when restrained. There is more depth to his voice now. He continues to defy and develop as a singer.

    Doug is my favourite “modern” Whitesnake guitarist and it is a good pairing.

    But, but, but… Glenn can’t write any decent hooks or songs. Like the Foo Fighters he just makes an agreeable, musical noise. The real songs are in his past.

    Uwe Hornung says:

    “Glenn can’t write any decent hooks or songs.”

    I believe that impression has to do with the fact that Glenn uses chords in most of his songwriting (his black music-influenced penchant for suspended and 6th and 7th chords that Ritchie in his songwriting would mostly eschew, Blackmore was mostly a straight major or minor/black or white composer) which sound unaccustomed if you were raised on Deep Purple’s more classical (and dare I say: conventional) choice of harmonies.

    Glenn’s songwriting has never had an emphasis on what sounds easily accessible (and I find a lot of his music needs repeated listening to really sink in). Coast to Coast from his early Trapeze days is a case study for that, not something you would have heard on a Purple album with its many augmented and – to Purple ears – plain “weird” chords.

    And now the full visually enhanced experience for the Gamers among us (I’m not one, I lost interest after Pac-Man!), in Lara Croft style with female buttocks and an animated, younger Glenn featuring a six-pack, but sans bass …
