The limited edition, deluxe photo book David Coverdale — A Life In Vision will be published by Wymer Publishing on 12 July. The coffee-table volume will celebrate the life in music of the British rock figurehead, documenting key moments and stories from his long career as frontman with Whitesnake and, in earlier years, Deep Purple.
The book will be housed in a custom-made block foil buckram presentation box and comes with a set of prints which are ideal for framing. It will be strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide, so its collectibility among rock diehards is assured. Those who pre-order the volume on 31 May can have their names printed in the book, on a dedicated fan page.
The new work comes with Coverdale in a busy time with Whitesnake, who will release the Flesh & Blood album on 10 May via Frontiers Music. It includes the single ‘Shut Up and Kiss Me.’ The band are now on the road on their 2019 world tour, which began on 12 April and arrives tonight (17) at the Aztec Theatre in San Antonio.
North American dates continue until 18 May, then they commence a European leg at the O13 Poppodium in Tilburg, Holland on 12 June. Whitesnake will be back home for the Download Festival on 14 June at Donington Park, with further European shows until 17 July. They’re also at Brazil’s Rock In Rio festival on 28 September.
Coverdale was in upbeat mood about the tour when he spoke to Billboard in a February feature. “I’ve been kind of trying to retire more times than Sinatra, and it just doesn’t seem to work,” he said. “This is going to be a necessary injection in all of us, inspiring, to do these new songs — as long as they’re accompanying ‘Still of the Night,’ ‘Is This Love’ and ‘Here I Go Again,’ of course, and they fit in beautifully.
“I can’t buy the excitement level we have right now,” Coverdale continued. “We have a group thread going on text and everybody’s just chewing at the bit to get on with it and start playing these songs for people. It just feels very fresh and very exciting and full of energy.”
