I remember already being a Whitesnake fan from when ‘Slide It In’ came out. I was ahead of the times for a young kid riding bikes and skateboarding. If I remember right the local record store guy thought I would like it knowing the other records I had been buying at the time.
Then their 1987 self-titled album came out and the WORLD saw what David Coverdale had to offer on a grander stage, MTV. Being an MTV kid of course I consumed every video like a ravenous monster. After all, his videos were quite delicious.
While all my friends would crank up Here I Go Again and Is This Love for me it was 1000% Still Of The Night.
So now I tell you to crank this classic tune from Whitesnake 1987 up and rock.
Whitesnake – Still of the Night
Whitesnake are a rock band formed in England in 1978 by David Coverdale, after his departure from his previous band Deep Purple. Their early material has been compared by critics to the blues rock of Deep Purple, but they slowly began moving toward a more commercially accessible rock style. By the turn of the decade, the band’s commercial fortunes changed and they released a string of UK top 10 albums, Ready an’ Willing (1980), Come an’ Get It (1981), Saints & Sinners (1982) and Slide It In (1984), the last of which was their first to chart in the US and is certified 2x platinum.
