download-poster-newThere’s just no stopping David Coverdale these days despite that rogue Joe Lynn Turner suggesting he occasionally lip-syncs and the fact that he’s really far too old for the rock and roll lifetsyle!

Live Whitsesnake remain one of the most consummate rock acts on the planet and last year’s studio offering Good To Be Bad suggested there’s plenty of life left in the old dog – or snake yet.

After 2008’s sumptuous co-headline tour with Def Leppard, Coverdale is back with his good buddies from the Steel City and back on the Donington stage he knows so well. Here’s something on Whitesnake for ya…

Name: Whitesnake

Formed: 1977

Home Town: Saltburn via the world

Essential Track: Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City (1978)

Essential Album: 1987 (1987)

Secret Weapon: Doug Aldrich, note-perfect US guitar God.

Why Download: If Def Leppard can do it so can Whitesnake. And Cov loves a good night out at Donington.

Live Rating: 9/10 If Cov’s on song he can’t be beaten. Allegedly.
