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.”
