Flashback Video Of The Week
When one thinks of Whitesnake videos, it’s always ‘Here I go again’, with Tawny Kitaen dancing on the hood of the car.
At JACK, we like the video that was released prior to the big hit.
‘Still of the Night’ has it all; great riffs, crazy jams and all the Jimmy Page rip offs you could ask for.
It also has Tawny Kitaen.
The good days continued for Whitesnake for 5 years after this video, then the band became another one of the many ‘Hair Bands’ that felt the destructive punch of the Seattle Grunge scene.
But unlike many other ‘Hair Bands’, Whitesnake has some credibility.
David Coverdale was the lead singer in Deep Purple before Whitesnake, hardly a ‘Hair Band’.
Whitesnake is alive and well and playing gigs now, just not to 16,000 fans every night.
Now, it’s more like 600 every other night.
