Re: Coverdale vs. Hughes, then and now.


I've alway's been undecided between the two,and I beleive
neither of them were exactly right for Purple.
On the other hand I'm glad they were in the band for the simple reason that it's why I came to know of them.


When it comes to the funky blues soul factor I'd say Glenn
get's my vote but for leaning more toward rock David is much better. emoticon

Au contraire, Hughes' voice was far more distinctive than Coverdale's, totally unique amongst rock singers, and he's a million times better today than he was then if you can believe it. You can say Coverdale had one of the best voices for a rock singer in the 70s but it's nonsense to say it was unique.

Have you only heard the 3 Purple albums he sang a few tunes and backing vocals on or have you heard his solo stuff too?...that burries anything Coverdale has ever done vocally and then pisses on it's grave. emoticon

That's a matter of taste.

To my ears, David alway had the much more sympathical voice. Male, rough and he did no "castrate-shrieking".

More power, more range, more stylistically diverse...

There's no accounting for taste but by all measurable factors, Hughes leaves Cov in the dust.
