It had been 11 years since the last full Whitesnake studio album (okay, it was really a Coverdale solo album, but it had Whitesnake in the name) and 2 years since any new music with the four new tracks on ‘Live…In The Shadow of the Blues’. Whitesnake was finally ready to bring us a full album’s worth of new material. David Coverdale and his new guitar flavor of the day, Doug Aldrich, worked diligently to bring us an album of new Whitesnake material that would hopefully remind us of old and take us in to the future.
The line-up of the band is now…
- David Coverdale – Vocals
- Doug Aldrich – Lead Guitar
- Reb Beach – Guitar
- Timothy Drury – Keyboards
- Uriah Duffy – Bass
- Chris Frazier – Drums
The biggest difference between this album and the last live album is Tommy Aldridge is no longer in the band. I love his drumming and I have to admit when I found out, I was a little disappointed, but Chris does well on his own and doesn’t disappoint.
