Unbelievably this is Whitesnakes first full length official Biography EVER! Many have released non official Biography's and copy and paste books about the band, but now this is the definitive history of Whitesnake with the bands members, former, and present telling their stories ,and opening the tin of Hard Rocking tales, what can I say other than Martin Popoff has done a stellar job and what do you expect from this consummate , established Canadian Author, this book Rawks! Whitesnake formed in 1978 after North East Golden Boy David Coverdale left Deep Purple.
The band have had many ups and a few downs ,but despite the downs these hard rock monsters are still going strong in 2015. Having amassed sales of over 30 million the band has an ardent hard core following and this book will please and enthral you whether you are a fan or not .
There are contributions based on the many many Interviews Martin has conducted over the years numerous interviews with David Coverdale, Neil Murray, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Steve Vai , Adrian Vandenberg, Keith Olsen , John Kalodner, Doug Aldrich, Ian Paice and others who have contributed to one of the biggest Hard Rock giants illustrious history.
The book highlights the many hiring's and sackings, reunions, breakups , and reformations. If like me you were a teen in the eighties when "Still of The Night" and "Here I Go Again" were regular features on MTV, and always wanted to know certain facts you will love this tome ! Its a must have ! Make no mistake! Its a book to savour "Forever More".
