August 2013 • David Coverdale guests on a re-recording of Trouble on Bernie Marsden’s new solo album due out later this year. Apparently it was supposed to be a sort of acoustic rendition, but DC’s vocal was so powerful Bernie went away and revamped the backing to suit. Ian Paice also guests on the album, as does Joe Bonamassa. But then it’s his label!

WHITESNAKE • Bored with your network and cable TV? Then you’ll be pleased that there’s a new TV channel devoted just to Whitesnake. If you thought that was already available (what else is Dave TV?), get yourself over to his Lordship’s website for details. Coverdale is working on both DVD and CD editions of a new live release, recorded on the band’s last world tour.
EMI called to say they’ve had some of the Whitesnake box sets turn up; although officially deleted if anyone missed out drop Ann an email and she’ll get you a price.
Three more vinyl reissues of Whitesnake albums are on the way too; 1987, Slip Of The Tongue and Slide It In. They’re all in gatefolds and use the remastered audio which has never been issued on vinyl before. There are a few extras; Slide has the non album b-side; and 1987 has a couple of non album alternate versions. Each one is presented in coloured vinyl – white, marble and red respectively.
