Talk of the day (Record Store Day, Whitesnake, Rainbow etc)

Posted: April 13, 2019 in About this blog, Classic Rock, Deep Purple Family, Magazines, Talk of the day, TV & Movies

I will sum up some of the more interesting stuff under this headline on a regular basis in the future (part of the new look of this blog, courtesy of the EU).

RECORD STORE DAY

Well, today is the day so if you have a record store worthy of the name in your neck of the woods, now is the time to pay a visit. I have friends who are carpooling for this, spending a good chunk of the day visiting a neighboring city (and why not).

WHITESNAKE

Loads of magazine covers out there now and there will be plenty more as the new album arrives in May. Current favourites include Sweden Rock Magazine (3 2019) and BURRN! (May 2019) from Japan. Sweden Rock Magazine goes to town with over 30 pages spread over two issues. The guy that slaps a chick on the ass in the new Whitesnake video “Shut Up & Kiss Me” is Coverdale´s son Jasper (and she is his actual girlfriend). Also, David has put out his Nevada home for sale and it is quite a palace (worthy of an Emperor of Rome). Him and wife Cindy is moving to a new place. Word is also out that there will be a nice “Slip Of The Tongue” box as well. Happy days.

RAINBOW

Looks like Rainbow is set to release a new version of “Black Sheep Of The Family” digitally on iTunes and Google Play on April 26. I guess it might turn up as a bonus track on the next Rainbow live release, and I think it is a fairly safe bet that they will eventually put something out from the upcoming tour.

SMOKE ON THE WATER

The Deep Purple classic “Smoke On The Water” is featured in a bombastic version in the new “Hellboy” movie. Nice to see that Milla Jovovich is in it.
