In a recent interview with In The Studio with Redbeard David Coverdale referred to the illness he suffered from before the release of Whitesnake’s self-title in 1987 and his debt. “He (the doctor) put a small flashlight into my mouth… and said, ‘This is the worst sinus infection I’ve ever seen, I’m surprised you could even talk’.  I came back and prepared for surgery and a 50% chance I would never be able to perform again.” Three million dollars in debt and having just recovered from throat surgery, Coverdale put it all on the line. What happened next? Adds the frontman: “We shot three videos in two weeks, “Still Of The Night”, “Here I Go Again”, “Is This Love” and things just went nuts.”
