Whitesnake - from Blues to Rock: the 80's

Whitesnake001The first major change in the band's line-up occurred right after the recording of 1982's Saints & Sinners album, when most of the band (including lead guitarist, Bernie Marsden and drummer, Ian Paice) were fired. Marsden was replaced by Mel Galley (of Trapeze fame), while Cozy Powell became new drummer. A few months after these events, Jon Lord decided to leave the band to reform Deep Purple, but he played on sessions for new album, Slide It In.

After another major personnel shift (John Sykes added on guitar), and a major recording deal with the Geffen label, Whitesnake released a re-recorded version of Slide It In for the U.S. market in 1984, which went double platinum in the United States. The Slide It In album spawned the American AOR hits, "Slow an' Easy", "Love Ain't No Stranger" as well as the album's title track - although in Europe the band had a run with other songs, "Guilty Of Love" and "Give Me More Time".Whitesnake002
