Marshall Amplifiers have been the corner stone of many a practise room, live performance, studio and bedroom essential for many musicians over the last fifty years. Ranging from Jimi Hendrix right up to Lemmy Kilmister being well renowned users, the amps have become something of legendary status. 

So what better way of celebrating the fact that these fantastic amps have been around for fifty years that showcasing the talent behind the airwaves, with a collage of talent here tonight all playing songs of their own, and many they made their own.

WHITESNAKE

6′TH OF JUNE 2011

Ice Hall, Helsinki

Whitesnake released their latest album NEVERMORE in March. The album has received great response and it marks the bands return more into its bluesy roots. The band has been regular visitors here in Finland since their rebirth in 2003 and this tour didn’t make any exception. It seems that there’s still good demand for Coverdale and his Snakes when approximately 4000 fans found their way to Old Hall in Helsinki.

WHITESNAKE -David Coverdale & Doug Aldrich

January 24th, 2007

DAVID COVERDALE & DOUG ALDRICH

David & Doug came over to Europe on last November to do a promotional tour supporting band’s recently released "Live.. In The Shadow Of The Blues" live album. What made this promo tour extremely cool was the fact that in addition of doing tons of interviews Doug and David spoiled their fans with playing selected acoustic gigs and Swedenrock Rock kick off party in Stockholm was luckily one of those places. There are lot’s of activity in Whitesnake camp and which is the most important thing is the news that band is currently working on brand new studio album, bands first in ten years, which should be released on next summer.

WHITESNAKE Guitarist Doug Aldrich

November 15th, 2006

DOUG ALDRICH

Douglas "Doug" Aldrich�s career as a musician started in the mid eighties when he joined the band Lion in 1985. Although they did succeed quite well they never made it to the big time and the band slowly disbanded after three albums in the late 80′s. Doug then worked briefly with such names as Hurricane and House of Lords before he formed Bad Moon Rising together with his former Lion band mate Kal Swan. Bad Moon Rising released three albums in the 90′s but they split up in 1998. Burning Rain was formed later on the same year and actually they still exist although there has not been too much news from their camp lately. In early 2002 Doug decided to agree to Ronnie James Dio’s offer to join as a fulltime member of Dio and soon he was in the studio recording guitar parts for the upcoming "Killing the Dragon" album. Although the album and following tour were really successful, Doug surprisingly decided to leave Dio and join David Coverdale’s new version of Whitesnake in the end of 2002. The Whitesnake reunion has been very successful. The band has done several world tours and last spring they released a new DVD "Live … In the Still of the Night". A new Whitesnake live album "Live… In The Shadow of the Blues" will be released later this year. The new album will also include four brand new studio tracks, the bands first new music in eight years, written by Doug and Coverdale. This interview was done last July. I met Doug during Whitesnake’s stop in Finland a day after their sold out concert in Helsinki and here are the results of out lengthy discussion about his current activities, past and future. The story continues….

Tampere Ice Hall, FINLAND

Review and pictures by Marko Syrjala

The "Live: In the Still of the Night" tour landed Finland for the first time in September 2004 when band played in the front of a sold out crowd in Helsinki. A couple of weeks later they returned to play one show in the far North of Finland in Oulu and now they are here again playing a show in Tampere and still there is one more gig left in Turku tomorrow. So in total there are four Ice Hall gigs within three months in Finland by Whitesnake. So the question is, is this band popular or not?
