"Here's a song for ya"! - David Coverdale's flagship, Whitesnake's best lineup must be this one in 1990. With the incredible Steve Vai and the amazing flying dutchman Adrian Vandenberg on guitars, this super duo must be hard to outdo at the time. Mr. super-curls Tommy "The Animal" Aldridge behind the drumset and with a great bassplayer in Rudy Sarzo who acted as the groups pacemaker. What can go wrong?
This is a 30+years celebration of this magic show at the Castle Donington in front of 70,000 people and it's available on DVD with 5.1 sound as well...Yeeehaa.

By comparision, I've been seen and experienced a concert by WS on their currently ongoing Forevermore tour and it's quite clear that Coverdale's voice was better in 1990, and with 30 years of touring, Davids voice is getting more and more worn and corroded every year and the man is 60 this year, so how'll you sing at that age? Perhaps this is how we shall remember Whitesnake, when they were on the top and created something memorable rather than a replay of the past.

Something that's recurring at all my Whitesnake concerts is these fucking drumsolos. Fun on the DVD, not fun on the CD. On a live album it's hard to be enthusiastic over a drumsolo. That's the only down point on this otherwise wonderful and perfectly produced album.

This is a monumental footprint of one of the 80s decade's best live bands and I'll put my children (and in the future any grandchildren) in front of the screen and let them watch the making of real rock history when the DVD is at home.
