9780957570085: Sail Away: Whitesnake's Fantastic Voyage

In Sail Away: Whitesnake's Fantastic Voyage – the first ever full biography of the band – top music writer Martin Popoff tells the tale of rock legend David Coverdale, from his Deep Purple roots to the two distinct incarnations of his mega-popular creation.

Whitesnake began life as a UK-based blues rock outfit, until the lad from England’s chilly east coast departed for America’s sunny west coast in search of fame, fortune, big videos and even bigger hair. Coverdale found them all, and 1987’s self-titled album went 8 x platinum in the US alone before their bright star waned in the face of grimy grunge.

In this book – his 45th – Popoff interviewed the major players, including Coverdale himself, to piece together the band’s roller-coaster history. He follows their story through the hirings and firings, the splits and reunions and the image changes to paint an affectionate yet realistic picture of one of the giants of rock.

If you remember great tracks such as "Here I Go Again," "Fool For Your Loving," "Still Of The Night," "Slow An' Easy," "Crying In The Rain," "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City," or “Love Ain't No Stranger,” then this book is essential reading.

The Sail Away refers to how Coverdale re-invented himself by sailing away to America's West Coast and making himself right at home. He loves it, and America loves him.

“Tommy Bolin, he lived with me for three months, before he joined the band,” explains Glenn Hughes. “Tommy Bolin was a very sweet, kind, philosophical, hippie-ish, generous, loving person. There wasn’t a bad bone in his body. The only thing was, Tommy was riddled with drug addiction. I had no idea he was into the morphines and the other stuff at all. And we talked about it and he joked about it, but I hadn’t realized my friend was actually getting to be hooked on the stuff. But Tommy and I also have stuff we wrote together. He was a great guy. I mean, I was sort of into my disease as well. The cocaine was definitely drug of choice in the ‘70s, for people who could afford it. So I was in my own head at that time.” “Look, here’s the deal,” frames Hughes, on the making of Come Taste The Band, Coverdale’s third record and the last for the band before the Mk. II reunion in ‘83. “Tommy Bolin joined Deep Purple in, I think, June of 1975. In June and July we basically rehearsed in Los Angeles, pretty much three quarters of them. We wrote a couple in the studio. Then we went to Munich to Musicland Studios and, you know, Tommy Bolin had moved into my home in Beverly Hills. There were definitely two camps being set up, maybe three camps being set up. There was me and Tommy to one side, David alone, and then Jon and Ian. And it was very obvious when we went to Germany that it was me and Tommy hanging out. Tommy and I were younger and we were more free-spirited. It was basically, if you listen to the album, there is definitely a Tommy and Glenn influence on the one side, and Coverdale is doing the big voice in the middle. We were the toxic twins of the band. Tommy and I were young and we didn’t know what the hell we were doing.”
