Whitesnake – Flesh & Blood

To write an introduction about Whitesnake is a waste of time and space. If you’re clueless about this band, then google because if you are, you probably have been – and still are – living under a rock somewhere. When Whitesnake now releases a new record, the first one with all originals featuring guitarist Joel Hoeckstra (Night Ranger, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Cher), the question isn’t whether they have recorded the best album of their career, equaling classics like Come An’ Get It (1981), Slide It In (1984) or even 1987 because let’s face it, that’s never gonna happen, no the question is how it will stand up to later releases after the come back, like Bad To Be Good (2008) and Forevermore (2011). I don’t even count the Deep Purple covers album The Purple Album (2015) debacle. No matter which era of Whitesnake you prefer, I think all Whitensake fans are at least a bit interested in how relevant Whitesnake are in 2019 – especially when you consider David Coverdale’s reduced vocal abilities of the last decade or so.
