Crooked spire

Bernie Marsden‘s current UK tour playing the Ready An’ Willing album seems to be going down well, including as it does some tracks Whitesnake themselves never did live, and others not heard in many a year. It’s a concept many musicians are doing these days to mixed success, but Bernie has more of a claim than most to this material, at least half a dozen of which I think we could call Whitesnake classics. Tim Summers snapped us the track list while he was down for the show in Chesterfield the other day (don’t you miss the days when someone did these in felt pen and a xerox by the way?!).  Tim adds that the singer, ex-Skin vocalist Nev MacDonald, did very well, “channelling his inner young Coverdale” without descending into parody, while Bernie and second guitarist Jim Kirkpatrick both armed with double-necked guitars for ‘Ain’t Gonna Cry No More’ was something to see.  Sold out as well.
