Happy (belated) 60th birthday DAVID COVERDALE!

I can’t BELIEVE I missed out what date it was! Being on vacation does that I guess – you totally lose track of time, don’t even know what DAY it is. And so I somehow completely missed out on one of the most important birthdays of the year – DAVID COVERDALE turned 60!!!

My god, this man, his voice and his music has meant the world to me. Not only that, but in the past 10-15 years or so, he has always – ALWAYS recognized me everywhere, and always acknowledged it. This legendary man who has created music history with Deep Purple and then his own Whitesnake, knows who some Swedish person is, that is amazing to me.

Last time was in Belgium this summer, when he spotted me, smiled and then between two songs went: “Well hello Daniela! So nice to see you again! Looking great as always!” A small gesture like that can make your day. Especially when you feel like anything BUT “great looking” after two days in the rain and the mud. Even if he’s lying, I’m fine with THAT kind of lying, haha! :)

At Sweden Rock Festival back in June, I had the most amazing, mindblowing experience watching Whitesnake – bringing out Bernie Marsden on stage and then – Adrian Vandenberg…! I was so blown away, I just stood there bawling my eyes out! It was incredibly emotional, I cried for days afterwards only THINKING about it! And my video from that show broke every record, 12 000 people watched it in about a week!

A few years ago, he was the one to wish ME a happy birthday in Copenhagen. Those of you who know me have already seen this, those of you who don’t probably don’t give a fuck anyway but the point with this one is to show how the roles have turned this time. Now it’s my turn to wish David a happy birthday, through a video card put together by PurpleSnake. Check it out!

A few years ago it was David….

 

Now it’s me and all of us in the Whitesnake-choir from all over the world, wishing David a Happy birthday!!

Thank you David for your fantastic music, it has meant more than words can describe to so many of us. I can’t wait to see Whitesnake again this fall!

    Despite being a fan of loads of more ‘extreme’ metal and more modern bands, David is still my favourite singer/muso, and always will be. His emotion, energy, and vocals are always the ultimate ‘go to’ music for any mood, any time, and has been since my earliest memories. The fact he is still so strong and careful to deliver his best as he gets older is an added bonus. I hope I get to see him live again, but if not, the gigs in 94 and 08 were amazing, leaving awesome memories.

    You’re right… He never ages really. He just has this almost unreal charisma and there won’t be any more “Coverdales” anytime soon in music history. He’s truly one of a kind and we all love him for what he’s given us with his voice and music. Nothing short of amazing. Looks like they’re touring like crazy now, hopefully they’ll come to your (almost forgotten) part of the world as well! :)
