David Coverdale Appearing on New Bernie Marsden Album
When asked about his new album, Marsden responded "Yes, and it's partly through Joe. I met with Joe's record company, Mascot/Provogue. After a few meetings, they asked: 'do you want to make a new album?' I haven't made a 'proper' album with a worldwide release since Green and Blues [Marsden's 1995 tribute to Peter Green]. But I wanted to do it properly, so I booked Abbey Road Studios in London."
Marsden was asked if Bonamassa would appear on the album and he said, " Hopefully. We need to find the time to properly record." With a follow up question he revealed that the album will include a very special guest.
"David Coverdale has graciously sung a song for me, which is, of course, fantastic. We've re-recorded "Trouble" from our Whitesnake days – it was one of the first songs we ever wrote together, and it's the first time we've recorded together in 30-odd years. David is singing as well as ever. Obviously, I've guested on some Whitesnake shows in the last few years too, so we're like an old couple now. It's just nice to be able to talk and play together as friends again."
He then reflected a little about his good memories with Whitesnake. He said, "My whole Whitesnake era was fantastic, when I look back. Even though David went off and formed the 'American' Whitesnake, they re-recorded 'Here I Go Again' [a Marsden co-write] which went to Number 1, so I can't complain. I don't have any resentment about that at all.
"And I can still go out and play with Whitesnake. The U.K tour [May 2013] with Journey was fantastic fun. Getting to hang out with David Coverdale and Neal Schon on the same gig: how bad is that?" Read the full interview here.
