Genre
Heavy/Glam Metal/Hard Rock

This afternoon in the Metal Digest office we’re cranking up one of the biggest rock albums of the late 80’s with Whitesnake’s self-titled 1987. In many respects, this is the album which polarised Whitesnake fans as those loyal to that old-blusey pub sound felt alienated by the big American sound of tracks such as ‘Still of the Night’ and ‘Bad Boys’ with even reworkings of ‘Here I Go Again’ and ‘Crying in the Rain’ give those fans a reason to moan. However, David Coverdale and John Sykes had little reason to complain, this album catapulted the band into superstars and darlings of MTV with its famous videos featuring the now late Tawny Kitaen scantily dressed and writhing seductively. So this afternoon, crank up the volume be a bad boy and go under the cover of moonlight!
