I understand the Kalodner influence came in when Moody was still in the band, ie to late 1983.



He's wrong (about Lord's wages that is). One of the problems was the way certain members were paid compared to others but Lord and Paice were earning well after DC and a lot more than the others.

Re: Bernie Marsden Book


Still on the 'book' related theme, I'm still undecided about whether to order the new Whitesnake In Full Flight book. On the plus side, it's all photograph's from the 'classic' era, but it's not cheap. And why do they think anyone would want the flight case it comes in! There have been a few Purple related books of late that I'd love to have but they have been too pricey- particularly the Rufus Stone ones. This ones a little more affordable but I think I'd prefer to wait on some reviews before parting with my cash.

maybe, but how do you know? this acquaintance who knew Ritchie in the 1980s told me directly that when he heard how much Jon was being paid in WS he allegedly said 'I paid XX more in Rainbow'. I've no reason to doubt him.

You’re right about the flight case, i bought the Knebworth book. It’s totally useless, probably some deal to get rid of them. The book itself was normal size, nothing like as big as say Didi Zills books. I’m sure the content is of good quality however

Because I asked and was given an [sign in to see URL] more than one band member.
It wasn't the best paid band in the world back then but the purple dudes did OK.

Re: Bernie Marsden Book


ok, Jon was quite derisory about DC in the late 90s, I spoke with Micky Moody in a pub in Twickenham at the time, and he mentioned Jon came across as bitter about his WS days. in the same interview Marsden did likewise I recall, all changed since he re connected with DC of course. Micky of course, still bears a grudge.

All true. I think Jon thought he left WS at the wrong time to be honest. David went on to great success for a time, as we all know. Both Bernie and Micky were pretty narked for a long time with David and then they too fell out with each other (money??). A shame Micky didn't respond a few years ago to DC's reaching out.

I understand Bernie and David have dealt with the "issues" as a result of re-connecting. Its the only way.

Re:


from the Whitesnake biography by Simon Robinson published in 1989 "..Lord, who had been fed up earlier in the tour when he'd discovered Cozy was being paid twice as much as he was..." circa 1984

I think you hit the nail on the head here. I always thought Whitesnakes success from 84-90 (in a relative sense) may have affected the perception of early Whitesnake from former players. I'm going to leave Micky Moody out of this because I think his issues with DC are deeper.

I think Coverdale had an emotional attachment to Lord he didn't have to other members because of how kind Lord was to him when he started out in Deep Purple. That comes across in the way Coverdale wrote about him and in his eulogy on youtube. I think that may have been why Lord survived in Whitesnake longer than others.

Re: Bernie Marsden Book


Does anyone know precisely what Micky's issues are with DC? Even Neil Murray has 'reconnected' amicably with DC recently, which only really leaves Micky from the classic line up. Does Micky have a particular beef with DC that's worse than Bernie and Neil had? Or is he just more stubborn about accepting the olive branch?
