Zeppelin Snaked

The following story was part of the Day in Rock Report for 5/15/08 - (antiMusic) Whitesnake enjoyed probably more press this past week than they've received in two decades. The problem is it was all about quotes attributed to frontman David Coverdale about another band. The Mirror posted a quote reportedly from Coverdale alluding to an upcoming Led Zeppelin world tour that Whitesnake might open. Forget for a moment that Zeppelin traditionally didn't have an opening act and the joking tone of the quote, now Coverdale claims he had no idea where this came from.

Blabbermouth has the story: Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale has contacted UK's Classic Rock magazine to set the record straight about his band's so called plans to go on tour with Led Zeppelin. Earlier in the week Coverdale was quoted as saying: "I'm expecting a call from Jimmy [Page] any day asking my band Whitesnake to support them on their world tour. Am I on board? You bet. Probably worth billions."

In an e-mail to Classic Rock's Geoff Barton, Coverdale requested: "May I call upon your assistance, if needed, ol' cock, to help put out this sh*tstorm that be gathering steam about me supposedly saying I'm awaiting Lord Page's call to invite me to be the supporting act on the forthcoming Led Zeppelin world tour. What f**king world tour, we ask ourselves? We're already out on our Good To Be Bad world tour, thank you very much!" Coverdale continued: "I have no idea where this started, Geoffers. But, with the wildfire of the internet, my poor ol' German publicist is fighting them off with her rusty, but trusty, Luger." - Smells a bit like the ol' publicity stunt? The mystery continues here
