Whitesnake return as ageing blogger relives his youth!

Top Marsden and fan, middle Marsden and Murray and bottom Whitesnake circa 1978.

Re-living my youth, last night I saw "M3 Classic Whitesnake" at The Brook in Southampton and very good they were too!

The band consisted of original Whitesnake guitarists Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody and bass player Neil Murray (who also played with Black Sabbath and Brian May amoung many others.) The line up was completed by Jimmy Copley on drums (ex-Jeff Beck, Tears for Fears), Mark Stanway on keyboards (ex-Magnum) and Stefan Berggren on vocals. The set list included Don't Break My Heart Again, Fool for your lovin', Here I Go again, Crying in the Rain, Slow and Easy, Hit and Run, Lonely Days and Walking in the Shadow of the Blues. In between songs there was much banter from Marsden and the quality of the music was excellent despite the band having no time to reherse as the singer had only flown across from his home in Sweden that morning!
Afterwards I heard Bernie comment how pleased he was at how the show had gone; they are playing a few more dates which can be viewed at
For those that are interested Micky Moody also has just published his biography (which is very funny in parts) at
Thanks for a great night!
