Anyone else a fan?

I didn't realize John Sykes played guitar and cowrote all of Whitesnake's self titled album. Coverdale really is the Robert Plant of the 80's.

I think everyone is a fan to some degree smile.gif Most folks refuse to admit though! smile.gif hehehehe. I dig em! Even liked the oooooooold stuff. They are guilty of the worst fashion/music sins of the 80's to be sure, but hey whaddya gonna do? It was the 80's smile.gif

Yeah, John Sykes was the primary guy all the way through the album that Steve Vai toured on! Some really killer rock licks smile.gif And some killer solos. Not to say there were not some cheeeeeeeesy ballads, there were. But such is life in the 80s eh?

I'm more of a John Sykes fan, Coverdale sort of kills it for me, but you can see where Coverdale gets everything from here and why Sykes didn't rub him right, cause he could do it without Coverdale.

yeah, they are (or were?, not sure if they are active at the moment) a great band that has the characteristic of having killer guitar jobs on every album. My favorite album is 1987. Steve Vai also recorded on one of their albums, he has been part of the band in the 80's.

This is RAD! I'm sure Vai gets a lot of love around here,
But for me
Nothing cooler than a dude shredding on a les paul.

Zakk Wylde comes to mind. . . . .

and other les paul shredders we can name?

actually I'm going to start a new thread about les paul shredders. I think that would be fun.

Along time ago on the way to a construction site in an Iroc, my uncle used to blast here I go again. I loved it. That song later became one of the first performances I played at a coffee shop. Cock rock can rule!

I love a bit of the 'Snake... my two fave albums are probably Slide it In and Slip of the Tongue altho I haven't heard them all.

A lot of people don't like SOTT because of Vai but I think Vai's playing elevated it from being just another 80's hair rock record.

And I think Coverdale is even better than Plant.

They even tried to write their own 'Kashmir' with Judgement Day.. which I also find a better song.

It's all about personal tastes isn't it ? smile.gif

Great bands to learn music from - both Whitesnake & Led Zepp. Anyone fond of the current line up of Whitesnake, btw?

Well,

Doug Aldrich Rules!
Tommy Aldridge still plays like he's 20 years old
Reb Beach played guitar in winger. . . not bad

and then some other guys.

Not a bad crew to have.

I saw whitesnake twice in 1989 and in 2010.
The 1989 gig was by far the better one - really cool 80ies metal with 2 great guitar players - vandenberg and vai!



the show had everything a 80ies rock/metal show ahd to offer these days...

1987 and slip of the tongue are two great albums but 1987 rules!

Buddy of mine is always preaching Deep Purple on me. I didn't realized Coverdale was on a few albums. I think I'm going to pick up a copy of Burn soon.

Anyone a fan?
