Re: When Whitesnake Was an Actual Band.....Way Back When.


I know I've been a little rude, and I'm italian so my english sometimes could sound a little bit heavier that it really is in it's real intentions, I know I'm in a minority but it's the same old stuff, a kind of generational misunderstandig, I'm 32 and I feel the same with young kids thinkin' that now rock means Linkin' Park and similar.

That doesn't means that things they change, often getting better, here in Italy you can find thousands of unknown band playin' better that the old WS line up(and I don't wanna know how much they are in us or uk!), if in the art time pass usually is not useless, and I think about the concert of the video called FourPlay, 4 example, the songs are great but don't forget that at the same time there were people called Balckmore, Jeff Beck, and the following year went out an Lp from a band called Van
Halen so if you LIKE something it's clear no one can say nothing about it but if we talk about the real value of the people playin' the early WS, except for the duo Lord Paice, they were no more than average musicians you can find in every crowded and smokey pup in the world, and your ears can tell the truth.

It's not about the artistic side of a musician, I love Tom Waits but he isn't a singer and not a pianist indeed, I was talkin' about the skill of the band and with this sight no one can tall me that those good fellas, not in the idiomatic meaning off cours, can do something better than the last musicians DC had in the last years.

I don't need to denigrate Moody to understand Reb Beach it's just another galaxy, if you are onest u know that's true and still sayin' "I don't give a damn my best is Moody" and I can't tell nothing about it....de gustibus non disputandum est.

Hope no one is gonna take this bad!

love and peace

Cris

It is a well known fact that there are unknown musicians in this world who are brilliant and even better than some of the famous ones.
I watched WS from the early hours on and this band was firing on all cylinders when it came to live performances.
Second is,I liked them because they were different to 99% of what has being around at that time.
Early WS was never fashionable,when petty things started creeping into the current rock-scene like wearing leather 'n chains,being a guitar hero band which all led into a dead end street - so the whole scene started to shrink and to disappear.
The main reason for me being disappointad when 1987 appeard was that there was only the name of a band with a strong character/personality left.Make up and posh'n nice videos became important.
Have you ever seen early WS live?I mean not on a video.
I don't think so,because otherwise you wouldn't give such a statement.

...well sometimes it's hard to explain but I'll try, I wasn't talkin' about why for each and every of you the early WS are worse or better than the last, it's different.

I'm son of the 80' and for my eyes and ears musicians like mooody are simply too trashy, and even in the 70's there are thousands of better players, and I don't wanna talk about the green suite of marsden, they make me laugh at the first glance, more consider that they could never even think to play the same tunes as Sikes, Vandemberg, Vai, Beach, Aldirch (and many many more).

If you are honest the simply fact is that the ol WS line up wasn't such a big deal even for that times, but when in a band there's a frontman like David with songs like fool for your lovin' and here I go also my grandmother could be on stage.

You like it well I respect but don't try to fool me, If I was in a show of the late WS surely I'd have been screaming and shouting each and every song can't deny, but time pass thanx god and the panama hat an rayban sunglasses of moody are very very far!

1987 is one of the greatest Rock album of the 900, surely not a nerds band but rock pure and simple, rock sometimes is more than notes on a sheet...

I don't think anyone who's bothered to respond to your borderline "trollings" could be bothered attempting to "fool you" into anything. You've just admitted to the fact that style is more important than substance to you, and that's your right to feel that way. Just don't expect too much support for the view on this forum.
Just a question - were things too dead on Coverdale's fan forum, where only praise of the current lineup is allowed? emoticon

Average,hmm,so:
DC = No
JL = No
IP = No
NM = No

So it's the two guitar players you have a problem with.
But talking about average,Slip Of The Tongue,the album,
that is.

...it's very easy to call "trolling" everything is not in our point of view, not very mature but surely easy, I don't know the existence of a DC fan forum in this board I'll go to see,thanx for tellin' me about it!

Anyway as the grat Ozzy sung I don't wanna change the world, don't want the world to change me so doesn't matter, yes style is very important when you play live 'cause art is also visual, but no one here has been able to say "...yes they sucks but we love them...", would have been better.

So I'm sorry if someone felt my posts somehow offensive but that's life, something people see things in different way, that's all folks.

Cheers emoticon

p.s.
Dear Leslie, Slip of the Tongue is an average masterpiece, just like 1984, Machine Head, Image and words, and few others.....obviously IMHO!

Just for the record, it was described as "borderline trolling". Yes, it's one thing to have preferences and/or differences of opinion along with different favorites - it's another matter when people's preferences or opinions are needlessly denigrated. I'm quite sure you don't see it that way, seeing as you did the denigrating, SotT. It would be advisable to think your posts through before you jump ahead and post them, and read thoroughly any responses they generate.
And yes, you've put yourself over the borderline with the questioning of maturity. I think your response pretty firmly establishes whose maturity may be in question here - yours, in case you weren't clear about it. I will give you kudos for generating responses, which it's become apparent is the whole point.

To TrollPrincess - no offense to you intended, my dear. And none taken, I hope.

No, to be earnest: Sorry if I nerve you with my interventions... But maybe I can't resist.

...I've always been the black sheep of the family accused of never knowing right from wrong... emoticon

I repeat maybe my posts seems harder than they really are, english is not my language, anyway the real problem is that as I can see people out there think that since the 1987 album WS are not the real WS when for me, and other million people to be correct, it exactly the opposite.

So maybe is useless to talk about this, that's my fault I should have know better...

Love and Peace Really!

Cris
