Bernie Marsden reveals video with unseen live Whitesnake footage

Legends always stay something special in the eyes of the fans. That's surely also what Bernie Marsden has experienced some time ago. At a rough guesstimate Bernie Marsden’s name appears on a hundred albums – maybe more. In addition to a long-running solo career the Buckinghamshire-born guitarist has been a recording musician since the early 1970s via membership of such groups as Whitesnake, UFO, Wild Turkey, Babe Ruth, Paice Ashton & Lord, Cozy Powell’s Hammer, Alaska, M3 and many more.

Most recently the guitarist revealed now the video for the song "Trouble" which includes unseen live footage of Whitesnake from 1980.  Talking about the video Bernie remarks; "This video is very special. A few months ago I was given a reel of film by a fan of a Whitesnake gig at Newcastle City Hall on the "Ready an' Willing" tour in 1980. It is unique and unseen footage of the classic early Whitesnake line up. Having had the enormous pleasure of hearing David Coverdale as a guest vocalist, and Ian Paice on drums on the track it seemed a perfect time to release just a little piece of it. It's a little grainy, but it is the real deal, watch Jon Lord in classic style on the Hammond organ. Many thanks to the people of the North East in the film, and of course the whole of the Whitesnake army out there. Special thanks to Mark Smith for his camera work and great editing. Hope you enjoy it, those on tour Snake memories flood back!"


The current album of Bernie Marsden ‘Shine’ features some extremely well-known names, from Joe Bonamassa to Whitesnake singer David Coverdale and the Deep Purple duo of Ian Paice (drums) and Don Airey (keyboards). Jimmy Copley of Jeff Beck fame behind the kit and Mark Feltham of Nine Below Zero also supplies some breathtaking harmonica playing. “I can’t help it, I’ve got a lot of mates – and quite a few of them are guitar players”, Bernie laughs.
