The only one I really like is a song called Saccharine.
– David Coverdale
Whitesnake more than most rock bands would get a very significant percentage of women in the audience and those were the ones I’d hear the voices because from where I am on stage is a pretty good spot.
What anybody else thinks about you is really of no consequence. It’s what you think of yourself.
The other thing that was very noticeable on that tour, not so much in the video, was the new young element that were coming to our shows… I started to see some very young people in the audience… maybe 14, 15, 16 years old.
My voice is an instrument.
Most of the albums that have taken long have been related to illness and fatigue or producer problems.
I don’t avoid confrontation, people should know that.
In the last couple of years I’ve been facing down a lot of the demons of the past and trying to find out, who I am, It’s something I think I’ll be doing for the rest of my life.
I’ve never been uncomfortable putting my heart on display, my feelings on display, certainly with an audience.
With all the highs and lows I’ve had in my life, I wouldn’t change anything. So no, I don’t, this is what I’m supposed to be doing.
Artistic development is a thing of the past, sadly.
I think we have two very important missions in life. One is to find out who we really are and the other one is to taste as much of life and experience as much of life as we can.
I saw what Purple meant to people and I still hear it now when I’m in Europe. I’m always shocked that I’m still asked about Purple because it was such a long time ago.
You know, all my songs are relatives, brothers, sisters, cousins.
I probably listen to Burn more than any of them, because it was so new me, so novel. To see my name on an actual record was such an incredible feeling.
I’m the last person to ask ‘what do you remember’ from a particular time period… I like to learn from the past… not ‘live’ in it.
Hard rock may have faded from the media for a time, but I’ve always been able to make a living, if not in America, then in the rest of the world.
All my vocals were recorded at home, which was great for me. You can actually have a studio in a computer program called ProTools. I did half the record with ProTools.
The audience will make you feel like a demigod. But when you leave the stage, get back to being human.
When certain bootleg companies started off and they would take maybe ten per cent of whatever they got and help fuel new bands, which I’m cool with, I think that’s a good idea. Most of the record companies are not doing that.
The critics love to get out their knives and dine on Coverdale. But the worse the criticism gets, the more successful I become.
I’ve always loved music, very simply, as a vehicle to express myself and that hasn’t changed.
I would hope it’s better, but I’m actually acknowledging now that I want to explore all these levels from a whisper to a scream with this gift I’ve been given.
Not necessarily, a lot of my songs are firmly tongue in cheek.
I’ve always thought live albums were cop-outs.
With Whitesnake it would have been inappropriate for me to have played Deep Purple songs, although I did at the beginning because I didn’t have enough Whitesnake songs.
