Whitesnake – Classic Rock Pick of the Week
The Whale time machine is ready to rock back into the past. Ready to go? Let’s set the date to October 10th, 1987. That’s when a rock group named Whitesnake, had a number one hit on their hands.
That song was Here I Go Again, and it had just landed atop the US singles chart. David Coverdale takes the honors as the person who wrote the song. The tune was released on Whitesnake’s album, ‘Saints & Sinners’ which came out in 1982 to little success, and then again in 1987 on the album ‘Whitesnake’, where it became a number one jem. Sometimes it just takes a second try or tweaking to make a song become a hit.
The video for the song had two versions. The first in 1982 and the second in 1987. For this week’s Classic Rock Pick, enjoy Whitesnake performing Here I Go Again along with some help from the audience at a 2006 London concert.
