Doogie White Appreciation Society


I reckon we ought to start of the DWAS. When you look at all the Rainbow vocalists, they've all been really good, top of the pile performers, with superb voices. Thenyou get to the final line-up of Rainbow so the poor guy who has to sing in that line-up has really BIG boots to fill and no mistake. Like everyone before him, he has to sing his own songs and take on the tracks from the other guys who went before. SO the last guy in has the hardest job.

Doogie White, to my mind, has been the very best of the Rainbow Singers, because he very successfully did his material and then did serious justice to ALL the previous singers. He's obviosuly a singer who is gogin to be aroudn the rock scene for years to come to so I reckon everyone who is/was a Rainbow fan should now get behind DW and give him the sort of push that Rainbow used to get from it's fan base. Rainbow's time really is now long past and it won't happen again, whereas Doogie still has mountians to climb and summits to conquer and looks like he still has the appetite, stamina and real desire to do it. Doogie is a great vocalist and he'll lift which ever band he's in, cream awlays floats to the top eventually and this guy WILL get there, but we should all help him succeed.

SO come on people support the man, he's the future of hard rock Rainbow style.

He is no doubt the most adaptable singer Rainbow ever had. Just too bad the mid 90's lineup didn't last a little longer.

I agree! Also IMO I think Doogie should take Cornerstone and run with it, That band has some serious potential! I still listen to Once Upon Our Yesterdays all the time!

Plus he is the only actual member of the Purple family who posts here and the old board from time to time.

Well by golly we should all join the DWAS straight away.
 I agree that he is very adaptable and his scream at the end of Ariel can certainly give Gillan (in his prime) a run for his money. I am however, growing tired of the standard stage persona of most singers these days. The leather pants, bare chested with vest open and the nonsensical sing-alongs. Either I'm getting old, or the persona is getting old. To me, although he is very adaptable to all three prior to him, I still don't get the same spark from his voice and own style as I do with Dio, Coverdale or Bonnet's studio recordings. But it is great to have a good singer singing the old RBR & DP tunes rather than watching that Squeely one send nails thru my head. Too bad he wasn't around when Gillan was canned in 88 or 89. He would have done the back catalogue justice and maybe that lineup could have lasted a bit longer and then dissolve with grace, rather than in dying into oblivion as a tribute to times long gone.

Doogie is a good singer and it's a shame that Rainbow didn't last with him... if that era Rainbow would have had a drummer similar to Cozy Powell on Stranger in Us All, it would have been an all time great record... it's the drums, in my opinion, that kills Stranger in Us All...

Doogie sings well with Yngwie, just saw him recently with Yngwie in Sayerville NJ, and that was a great concert...

Yngwie isn't as thick sounding as Blackmore, though... but Yngwie's guitar is sometimes more ear splitting...

Rudy Sarzo was there too and it was great to see all three on stage... Rudy added to Yngwie's playing and gave it a thicker sound... Doogie, Yngwie and Rudy... you guys should make an album... with TOMMY ALDRIDGE!! (that is if you can get him from WS)

Re: Doogie White Appreciation Society


I'd join the DWAS appreciation society any day, anything the guy has done from the Chain demos to the Gary Hughes' Once A Future King rock opera has been uniformly excellent and of course Cornerstone has been one of my favourite bands of the last few years (and Human Stain one of my fave albums ever perhaps!). Long may he continue!

Re: Doogie White Appreciation Society


I dunno... When SIUA came out I had a big fallout with hard rock moving into alternative stuff for a few years. The kind of mid-90s desease lots of people suffered at the time. So I got the tape without even knowing the line up! The first song started and I almost took him for JLT. In the end I thought: here's some guy who sings like a cross between JLT and Dio but lacks their personality and emotion. A typical euro metal vocalist (you know the kind that Yngwie likes). Very good techicaly (and very stable live) but still far from the first league. Since then Doogie's rating grew in my book mostly because of amazing Humain Stain album (Now that was GOOD!). He did plenty of crap over the last few years (Iron Maiden covers anyone?) and a few decent records (The last Praying Mantis CD)and I guess he's still searching for his own FACE. But yes, while I rate him miles below Dio/Bonnet/Turner - he's got the voice and has potential. I'm not joining DWAS yet, but I wish him good luck in his career and I'm definetely buying the new stuff with the guy. Too bad I can't trace his Gephsimane MP3 anymore. I would love to hear this one!

 It figures that years after I move out of Old Bridge, they get a great rock club with top quality acts. I saw Rainbow in 97 just down the road from there at the Birch Hill, but living in Penciltucky now doesn't really afford me the pleasures of seeing bands that I normally would have gone to see just to check them out. Nowadays I only travel for DP or Blackmores Night since the club scene up here consists of a few hillbilly bars.
