David Coverdale is 69 today. His broken marriage turned into a huge song for Whitesnake.  the song was  “Here I Go Again” written about a dozen years before it hit number-one in America. It was originally on Saints and Sinners and re-recorded for Whitesnake in 1982 and 1987 respectively. It was # 1 the Billboard Hot 100. Here is David Coverdale.

 

“‘Here I Go Again’ was a document that I wrote in Portugal, much earlier than you guys heard the song. It was, I think, 12 years old when I had a number-one in America with it. That was documenting the break-up of my first marriage, when two people who at one time were very much in love turned into cat and dog. What I would do in those days was rent a house in the South of France, or the Caribbean, or whatever and take like a writing holiday. That particular song was in Portugal.”

25 years ago, eight and a half years after its release, George Thorogood and the Destroyers‘ Live was certified platinum for one million sales on April 21st, 1995. He’s bad!  That phrase was the inspration to his song...
