resulted in a 1993 album that was a commercial and critical success. In 2016, Coverdale was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Coverdale was born on 22 September 1951, in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Riding of Yorkshire, England.[4] Around the age of 14, he began performing professionally and developing his voice. "I don't think my voice had broken," he explained to Sounds in 1974. "And that's when I first learnt how to sing with my stomach, which sounds silly, but it's totally different from a normal voice." Coverdale started performing with local bands Vintage 67 (1966–68), The Government (1968–72) and Fabulosa Brothers (1972–73). Early career[edit] Deep Purple
Deep Purple
(1973–1976)[edit] In 1973, Coverdale saw an article in a copy of Melody Maker, which said that Deep Purple
Deep Purple
was auditioning for singers to replace Ian Gillan. Coverdale had fronted a local group called The Government, which had played with Deep Purple
Deep Purple
on the same bill in 1969, so he and the band were familiar with one another, and after sending a tape and later auditioning, Coverdale was admitted into the band, with bassist Glenn Hughes
Glenn Hughes
adding his own vocals as well. In February 1974, Deep Purple
Deep Purple
released their first album with Coverdale and Hughes titled Burn which was certified Gold in the US on 20 March 1974[5] and in the UK on 1 July. In April 1974, Coverdale and Deep Purple
Deep Purple
performed to over 200,000 fans on his first trip to the United States
United States
at California Jam. In December 1974 Burn was followed-up by Stormbringer, which also ranked at Gold album status in the US and the UK. The funk and soul influences of the previous record were even more prominent here, and this was one of the reasons why guitarist Ritchie Blackmore
Ritchie Blackmore
left the band in June 1975.[6] Rather than disbanding, Coverdale was instrumental in persuading the band to continue with American guitarist Tommy Bolin
Tommy Bolin
(of Billy Cobham and The James Gang
The James Gang
fame). As Jon Lord
Jon Lord
put it, " David Coverdale
David Coverdale
came up to me and said, 'Please keep the band together.' David played me the album that Tommy did with Billy Cobham. We liked his playing on it and invited Tommy to audition.'"[7] The band released one studio album with Bolin, Come Taste the Band
Come Taste the Band
in 1975. The album was less successful than previous records, and at the end of the tour in March 1976, Coverdale reportedly walked off in tears and handed in his resignation, to which he was told there was no band left to quit. The decision to disband Deep Purple
Deep Purple
had been made some time before the last show by Lord and Ian Paice
Ian Paice
(the last remaining original members), who had not told anyone else. The break-up was finally made public in July 1976. Said Coverdale in an interview: "I was frightened to leave the band. Purple was my life, Purple gave me my break, but all the same I wanted out."[8] Solo (1977–1978)[edit] After the demise of Deep Purple, Coverdale embarked on a solo career. He released his first album in February 1977, titled White Snake. All songs were written by Coverdale and guitarist Micky Moody. As his first solo effort, Coverdale later admitted: "It's very difficult to think back and talk sensibly about the first album. White Snake had been a very inward-looking, reflective and low-key affair in many ways, written and recorded as it was in the aftermath of the collapse of Deep Purple." Even though the album was not successful, its title inspired the name of Coverdale's future band. In 1978 Coverdale released his second solo album Northwinds, which was received much better than the previous album. But before the album's release, he had already formed a new band. Early Whitesnake

era (1978–1982)[edit]

After recording Northwinds, Coverdale soon formed the band Whitesnake, where Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody played guitar. This was originally a touring band for Coverdale's first solo album, it soon developed into a full-time band. In early 1978, the band released the Snakebite EP, which was later repackaged as a full album (titled Snakebite, released in June 1978), with the B-side taken from Coverdale's Northwinds
Northwinds
album. For the follow-up album, Trouble, Coverdale was joined by his former Deep Purple
Deep Purple
colleague, keyboardist Jon Lord. For Whitesnake's 1980 album, Ready an' Willing, drummer Ian Paice also joined the group. Ready an' Willing
Ready an' Willing
also featured the band's biggest hit up to that point, the song "Fool for Your Loving", which reached No. 13 on the British charts[9] and No. 53 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Ready an' Willing
Ready an' Willing
was followed up by the even more successful Come an' Get It
Come an' Get It
in 1981. During 1982 Coverdale took some time off to look after his sick daughter and decided to put Whitesnake on hold. When David Coverdale
David Coverdale
returned to music he reformed the band, which thereafter recorded the album Saints & Sinners. In 1982, according to British heavy metal magazine Kerrang!, Coverdale was considered for the vocalist position with Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath
following the departure of Ronnie James Dio. Coverdale declined. Breakthrough[edit] International success of Whitesnake
Whitesnake
(1983–1991)[edit]

Whitesnake
Whitesnake
gained significant popularity in the UK, Europe, and Asia, but North American success remained elusive. In 1984, the album Slide It In dented the US charts (reaching #40), but not enough to be considered a hit. In time for the US release of Slide It In, Coverdale made a calculated attempt at updating Whitesnake's sound and look by recruiting guitarist John Sykes
John Sykes
from the remnants of Thin Lizzy. Sykes brought a more contemporary, aggressive guitar sound with him and had stage manners to match. The last remaining Deep Purple
Deep Purple
connections were severed when Jon Lord
Jon Lord
left after recording Slide It In
Slide It In
to re-form Deep Purple. ( Ian Paice
Ian Paice
had left Whitesnake
Whitesnake
in 1982.) In 1985, Sykes and Coverdale started working on new songs for the next album, but Coverdale soon contracted a serious sinus infection that made recording close to impossible for much of 1986 and which had doctors thinking he might never sing again. Coverdale eventually recovered, and recordings were continued. But before their upcoming album was fully recorded and released, Coverdale had dismissed Sykes from the band.[10] The split with Sykes was, reportedly, not amicable. In many period interviews, Coverdale stated that the next album was a make-or-break album for Whitesnake, and if not successful he would disband Whitesnake
Whitesnake
altogether. During 1987 and 1988, North America was finally won over, with the multi-platinum self-titled Whitesnake album, co-written for the most part with now-departed Sykes, but including guitar virtuoso Adrian Vandenberg, as a session musician. The 1987 album has sold 8 times platinum since its release, propelled by hit singles such as "Here I Go Again" and "Is This Love", and finally made Whitesnake
Whitesnake
a bona fide concert headliner in North America. Through the late 80s and early 90s, caught in the "hair-band" era, Coverdale kept Whitesnake
Whitesnake
going with great success despite changing line-ups. In 1989 Coverdale recruited Vandenberg to record a new album, Slip of the Tongue. Vandenberg co-wrote the entire album with Coverdale, but a wrist injury sidelined him from contributing the solo guitar work. Fellow virtuoso Steve Vai
Steve Vai
was recruited, re-recording most of Vandenberg's existing parts and finishing the album. Upon release, it was a great commercial success in Europe and the US. The album peaked at number 10 in the US, and has achieved platinum status. Critical response was mixed, with Allmusic critics Steve Erlwine and Greg Prato noting that despite high sales, Slip of the Tongue "was a considerable disappointment after the across-the-board success of Whitesnake".[11] The following tour, for which Vandenberg returned to play along with Vai, cemented Whitesnake's reputation as a giant in the world of hard rock. The tour continued until the end of 1990. At that point, Coverdale had grown uncomfortable with the entity he felt Whitesnake
Whitesnake
had become, and admitted that he got "caught up in it". In one interview, Coverdale stated:

It got louder and louder, and so did I, to the point now where I have to get dressed up like a "girly man" and tease ones questionable bangs or hair and it's all becoming a bit... boring.[12]

In 1990 Coverdale sang and co-wrote (with Hans Zimmer
Hans Zimmer
and Billy Idol) the song "The Last Note of Freedom" for the Tony Scott
Tony Scott
film Days of Thunder. On 26 September 1990, after the last show on the Slip of the Tongue tour in Tokyo, Coverdale disbanded Whitesnake
Whitesnake
indefinitely. Tired of the business in general, the rigors of touring and troubled by his separation and later divorce from Tawny Kitaen, Coverdale wanted to find other values in life and took "private time to reflect" and re-assess his career direction. Coverdale and Page
Coverdale and Page
(1991–1993)[edit] In the early spring of 1991, a collaboration was set up with guitarist Jimmy Page

fame. Both parties have said that the collaboration revitalised them on many levels. This collaboration resulted in the Coverdale-Page album released in March 1993. The album was a hit all over the world reaching number 4 in the UK and number 5 in the US, and was certified Platinum in the US on 7 April 1995,[13] but the US tour for the album had to be cancelled due to slow ticket sales. After a limited Japanese tour, Coverdale and Page
Coverdale and Page
parted ways. In part, the problem had been the comparison to Robert Plant
Robert Plant
who had fronted Led Zeppelin, as vocalist, with Jimmy Page. Some of their audience criticised Coverdale, feeling he was merely a Plant clone;[1] Plant himself referred to the team-up as ‘David Cover-version’.[14] Others felt the short-lived collaboration only served to inspire Page to once again hook up with Plant, a year later.[15] Later years[edit] Return of Whitesnake
Whitesnake
(1994, 1997–1998)[edit] In 1994 Coverdale assembled a new line-up of Whitesnake
Whitesnake
(with the exception of Coverdale's musical partner, guitarist Adrian Vandenberg and bassist Rudy Sarzo, both of whom had been in Whitesnake
Whitesnake
since 1987) to tour for the release of Whitesnake's Greatest Hits
Whitesnake's Greatest Hits
album. The band again broke up after the tour. After this Coverdale once again retreated from the music business, for three years. In 1997 Coverdale returned and released Restless Heart (with Vandenberg on guitar). The album was originally supposed to be Coverdale's solo album, but the record company forced it to be released under the moniker "David Coverdale & Whitesnake". The tour was billed as Whitesnake's farewell tour, during which Coverdale and Vandenberg played two unplugged shows, one in Japan and the other for VH1.[16][17] The first of the two shows was released the next year under the title Starkers in Tokyo. After the Restless Heart-tour ended, Coverdale once again folded Whitesnake
Whitesnake
and took another short break from music. Back to solo (1999–2002)[edit] In 2000 Coverdale released his first solo album in 22 years, titled Into The Light. Even though the album was not a hit, it did return Coverdale to the music business. Re-reformation of Whitesnake

In 2008 the band (with new bassist and drummer) released its first new studio album in over 10 years titled Good to Be Bad. The band toured the album extensively. Also in 2008, Whitesnake

was cancelled so that this injury would not worsen.[19] In early February 2010, David Coverdale

Personal life[edit] Coverdale was first married in 1974 to Julia Borkowski from Germany, and their daughter Jessica was born in 1978. Coverdale's second marriage was to former model and actress Tawny Kitaen, from 17 February 1989 until they divorced two years later, in April 1991. Kitaen was known for her provocative appearances in Whitesnake's music videos for "Here I Go Again", "Is This Love" and "Still of the Night." Since 1997, he has lived with his third wife, Cindy, an author (The Food That Rocks); they have one son named Jasper.[21][22] On 1 March 2007, Coverdale became a US citizen, in a ceremony in Reno, Nevada, and now holds dual US/UK citizenship.
