whitesnake were the band that did "here i go again" and i think their singer did a record once with jimmy page.
David Coverdale, the singer in question, was the singer in Deep Purple after Ian Gillan. Whitesnake were quite popular in Britain and Europe in the 70's and early 80's, and definitely had a harder sound than they are remembered for here. I imagine many a greasy haired headbanger would have had a few Whitesnake records sitting alongside the likes of Thin Lizzy and Rainbow back in the day. Almost all of the early albums also feature Jon Lord and Ian Paice from Deep Purple, who were amongst the old-timers that Coverdale fired from the band so that American girls would be more interested in the group - and it worked.
