Whitesnake's David Coverdale Learned Old Snakes Can Learn New Tricks

(Classic Rock) David Coverdale has recalled how he embraced a more commercial form of rock music as he made Whitesnake's 1984 album Slide It In.

He experienced a eureka moment after A&R icon John Kalodner determined the order of tracks on the A side of the record.

And put together with advice gleaned from producers Keith Olsen and Mutt Lange, it charted a course for Coverdale's career over the decades to come.

The first time he heard the album played on radio, he was sharing a hire car with drummer Cozy Powell. "We were blown away," says the vocalist. "I said to Cozy, 'You can teach an old snake new tricks.' And that was the beginning of me embracing compression." more on this story
