Bernie Marsden - Trouble (Feat. David Coverdale) - Official Video

“I’m very happy to have reconnected with David a few years back. When I asked him to sing this reworking of ‘Trouble’

[the title song of Whitesnake’s debut album in 1978] I expected him to say: ‘Oh, get your people to talk to my people’ but instead he replied: ‘Absolutely, dear boy’. His lead vocal was very different to the laid-back feel of my original backing track so we re-did the whole thing, and when it came to putting some drums on it there was only one person to call, that bloke from Deep Purple [Ian Paice]. We also put the Hammond organ part in as a tribute to Jon [Lord, the late Deep Purple/Whitesnake keysman].”

Shine, the new album by Bernie Marsden, is out now on Provogue!

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. Though there’s a tendency to pigeonhole him as a blues-rock guitarist, each of Marsden’s acts had its own individual flavour.

Although Marsden was wary of flooding the credits with too many special guests, ‘Shine’ does feature 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.
