    All Whitesnake fans unite here.

    Whitesnake is one of those bands that has dabbled in both Rock n Roll / Hard-rock kindof music as well as Hair Metal.

    Personally I like the Hairmetal albums/songs, and actually it was the hair metal scene that lead them to popularity.

    John Sykes and Steve Vai have lended some fabulous guitar work with equally fabulous guitar tones.

    Albums to looks out for:
    Slide It In
    Slip of Tongue

    and oh - you can check out Greatest Hits if you dont wanna take risk with three albums (PM and thou shalt be rewarded).

    BTW the name Whitesnake is inspired by a piece of human male anatomy.

    Me..........The biggest Whitesnake Fan out here :D . I have with me all of their collection and listened to all of their songs even before the MP3 days.

    My favourite album is Ready n Willing which has most of the Classics..

    The pair Bernie Marsen and Micky Moody on guitars were really cool..And Neil Murray :nw: :nw:

    At point of time it was 3/5 Deep Purple with Jon Lord on Keyboards, Ian Paice on Drums and David Coverdale on Vocals. Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover would have completed the Line Up. Their guitarist Bernie Marsden was recommended to Whitesnake by the man Ritchie Blackmore himself....Talk about job recommendations...

    Whitesnake's best albums were pre-1987. Adrian Vandenberg is a much better player than he chooses to show. and that was the case in Slip Of The Tongue.

    ^ But Steve Vai overshadowed him then.

    Where did Vai overshadow Adrian Vandenberg. Those two never played together. The songs were written by Adrian and played by Vai. Very similar to Mustain writing Kill 'em all and Hammett recording it. But Vandenberg was not fired, he had some ligament problems due to which he couldn't play guitar. Sad to say that Vandenberg has almost quit the music scene...:help:

    i have just heard/remember three songs by them: "is this love"..simply amazing song and another is "still of night", which is also not bad. then "here i go again" i find it ok-ok..
    would definitely like to know about other songs by dem..so which r ur faves?

    "ah..those days! long haired men jiving wid their guitars"

    I meant to say that Vandenbergs songs were played by Vai. Just like the two of them played Sykes songs. No he's not given up. He made a cameo with Whitesnake at the Arrow festival. I was lucky enough to be there on my visit to Europe. The bad news is that he is still suffering from the injury on his right hand. It's so bad right now that he can't even hold a pick and picks with one of his nails. He still made good on his solo though. Doug Aldrich (who's a damn great guitarist) looked in awe of being able to play next to him.

    I mistook Adrian = Vivian Campbell. :eek::

    Forgive me. Am not good with names.

    Vini you forgot to add spandex-lycra wear and make-up on face

    Mishtoook again...Vivian Campbell never played with Vai too :p: :p: ..Vivian Campbell played with Adrian Vandenberg... And now you tell me, whom did Vai overplay :aggre: :aggre: ...Maybe he overplayed the Drummer. He'd have given a guitar to drummer and then won a guitar duel with him.....:think: :think:
