Got to go see Whitesnake on Friday. Great show! It was at the Chinook Winds casino here in Oregon. Prior to the actual show, went to the resturaunt to grab some dinner. Ran into Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach. Got to take a photo with them. I felt bad about that actually, I didn't want to bother them while they were eating, but my friend bothered them anyway.

We were supposed to have 4th row seats, but I mananged to befriend a lady who was where to photoshoot the concert. She was front row, she had an empty seat by her. We chatted for a while befor the concert and when the show started, I just stayed there. This type of venue is one where there is no security guards between you and the stage, so, it was quit awesome being right ther at the stage.

David Coverdale was excellent. Twice he put his mic out for me and my friend (who bull moosed his way to the stage because he seen me there) allowed us to sing into his mic. That was fun and exciting.

Got some pics from Reb and Doug.


So, that's the good stuff. The bad? My iPhone cell phone took a 100% dump on me about 30 minutes before the show. It just would not turn on. It had a full 100% charge. It just for some unknown reason stopped working as if there was no battery in it. Thus I was not able to take any pictures. I mean really? You're FRONT ROW at a Whitesnake concert and your cell phone gives up the ghost and you cant take any pictures. What a crapper.

Oh and I asked a roadie what heads Reb had, guess he plays through Marshall Plexis'. I didn't ask what Doug was playing through BUT, they were identical to what Reb had, so I'm going to assume he was playing through Plexis' as well. Reb had 4 full stacks on his side and Dough had 5. I think... It was either 3 and 4 or 4 and 5. I can't recall, but I know that Doug had one more than reb for some reason. Never asked.

Anyway, good times for sure!

I am jelaous! I have a few bands on my lists as "must see", and Whitesnake is one of them. I am happy to hear that Coverdal holds up, which cannot be said for many of the older rock stars. Coverdale's voice is really amazing as he could almost sing anything and you could just stand there and listened to it and have it make sense on some level. [br][br]Anyway, good read. Thank you:)

Whitesnake, British hard rock legends from the 80s, still have a huge fan following today consisting of a whole range of ages. Hard core veterans to fresh faced fans littered the arena to watch Whitesnake perform, unified by their love of the band. Over the decades the band has released a number of hits off of 12 studio albums, the most recent of which was released in 2015. Due to their consistency and ability to shape their music to suit the age they were playing in, the band has retained their popularity, a popularity that soared to great heights in the 80s. The band has so many hits that almost all their songs on their set list were easily recognisable: from ‘Here I Go Again’ and ‘Is This Love’ to ‘Love Ain’t No Stranger’ and ‘Can You Hear the Wind Blow’, Whitesnake drove the crowd into a frenzy and had everybody singing along, our voices mingling into one exultant chorus in the name of Whitesnake. The energy was electric.
