David Coverdale: I Greatly Regret Never Playing This Whitesnake Song Live

David Coverdale talked about Whitesnake's monumental record "1987," saying in a new video:


“John’s [Sykes] soloing and playing on the album is truly landmark stuff and so influential to a lot of people I know. I hope he’s very proud of it, because I am.”

Focusing on the album’s “Straight for the Heart” song, David added:

“It’s a straightforward love song. We’ve never, ever played it live, and it’s one of my big regrets.

“We were gonna tour this year, 2017, and play the entire ’87 album, which was really exciting for me. But, we toured 2015, 2016, I was exhausted, so we made a choice to make a new studio album, and do another seven projects at the same time. Dear god, help us.”
