Whitesnake.com

Obviously, Whitesnake.com is the band’s, and David Coverdale’s, official website. What is cool about the website is that is scrolls from side to side. Sorry, small details like that amuse me! Anyway, there is a large MEDIA section with live songs and videos. The FEATURES section gives you all the latest Whitesnake news & tour info, there’s a BBS and an online store. The section I enjoy the most is the ARCHIVES. It has a cool discography from David’s Deep Purple days to present, there are interviews, magazine covers, photos and even games! You can tell that Coverdale has taken the time to make sure his website is unique and fan-friendly.

WANTED

Whitesnake – Lovehunter (1979)

This is a quick add in to my WANTED list. I own this CD but I need a replacement because there is a big scratch on the disc! I was playing it the other night and about halfway through it started skipping like crazy! Pulled it out and noticed the scratch. I’m usually on top of these things and I have no idea how it got scratched, maybe when we moved into this house? I tried a CD fixer but it didn’t work…..so it goes on the list! This is also one of my favorite album covers of all time.

Whitesnake – Starkers In Tokyo (1997)

I’ve passed on this live unplugged album for a long time. I’ve seen it plenty of times in the local record shops but, because it’s a Japanese import, the price ranges from $20-$30 depending on the store. It’s just David Coverdale singing and Adrian Vandenberg on acoustic guitar performing for a small audience in Tokyo, Japan. I’m a sucker for “unplugged” albums so this is something I want to hear.
