Now it makes sense why Coverdale picked new guys


I just saw an M3 video from their Web site and it became clear why Coverdale will never tour with the "classic" lineup.

The years have not been good to Marsden in particular and Coverdale is too aware of image in this industry to tour with guys who are overweight and looking rather old. (Neil Murray isn't a pretty picture, either.)

Personally, I don't care what my favorite musicians look like. Most bands I like have been around forever and I'm long past high school where looks might have mattered.

When Coverdale announced his reformed line-up, I figured he just wanted to work with new people. But now I figure he was more concerned with the way the band looked on stage.

Certainly image was a factor for the albums in the late 80's, but I guess I was naive enough to think that enough time had passed that the music and history of the band would be the most important things, not how photogenic the band is.

Am I being too cynical?

I think european audience would not mind if Coverdale played with Moody, Marsden & Murray. Quite opposite!

In America that would never work. Like it didn't in the late 70's/early 80's...

While looks aren't really that important.....I'm glad all of the bands I saw this year that had 50 year olds...still looked in shape and fantastic and like rock stars should look. (Boston, Springsteen, Scorpions, Coverdale, Glenn Hughes, Ritche Blackmore) I mean who wants to look at a bunch of fat bald bastards?

You just can't pull off playing Still Of The Night with a shining bald pate and a huge beer belly, sad but true. emoticon Having said that and fully understanding the unwritten law of going out with a young looking band David could have made far more adventurous choices than the ones he did eventually make concerning his associates...

God forbid what David would look like without the bleech in his hair and his brand new teeth though.
It reminds me of when he joined Purple and they made him wear contact lenses and sent him to the dermatologist. emoticon

ALL KIDDING ASIDE YOU HAVE TO ADMIT HE TAKES GOOD CARE OF HIMSELF.

I'm sad that he joined plastic surgery.

Hang on there, we don't really know that, indeed some closeups of his face reveal a guy that's definitely showing his age, the wrinkles and all that stuff are more than visible.

But I do know since a few days Christos.I read credits of him,thanking his personal surgery assistent.
The thing is,I saw the man too many times in my life,sometimes from a very close distance and I swear,this is not the mans face I used to know.

No wonder Jon Lord couldn't recognize his old bandmate at first,when they bumped into each other in a bar in the US not long ago.Think about that...
They've worked and toured together for so many years.
