He still sounds great when he's not trying to sing his lungs out.

Very nice. Like Gillan, he still sounds quite good when he isn't trying to sing like a banshee.

Sorry- but can't agree. DC was a wonderful singer and many of us have been privy to some great acapella performances of this song and others over the years. He just sounds so weak here and he's really having to try very hard to keep the tune. My other half (who's not a big fan, but did like DC's voice) heard me playing this and the first thing she said is "Oh my God, is that David Coverdale. He sounds awful".

It just just doesn't come naturally to him anymore , he can't change gears through his range and his spoken voice is deeper and more powerful than his singing voice.

His voice is not in best shape anymore. But I loved the song. I think his voice fit perfect for ballads and/slow tunes (Only my Soul, Behind the Smile, Sail away, Sailing Ships). I can‘t listen to Highway Star (Mark 4).

I think he sounds OK here. He's singing into a phone mic and playing guitar at the same time. No compression, no mixing, no nothing. As raw as it gets. His voice is older but I think he's fine doing this stuff. Sammy Hagar, on the other hand....sounds awesome.

Sammy at Home

Just found this. Rather good....

Sammy sounds excellent as always. Check out his birthday bash from last October. He still cranks it out like he is 42 instead of 72. Always a fun time listening to Sammy.
