Late Night FDL: Soldier of Fortune

Whitesnake – Soldier of Fortune

Former Deep Purple frontman David Coverdale has resurrected some of his oldies on Whitesnake’s soon-to-be released The Purple Album…

Whitesnake have released a music video of the classic Deep Purple track, “Soldier Of Fortune”, as a preview of their upcoming May 19 release, “The Purple Album.”

It’s the fourth tune issued in advance of the record, following “Stormbringer”, “Burn” and “Lay Down Stay Down.” The group’s 12th album sees frontman David Coverdale re-recording classic songs from the Deep Purple Mark 3 and Mark 4 records he appeared on: “Burn” (1974), “Stormbringer” (1974) and “Come Taste The Band” (1975).

In addition to Coverdale, Whitesnake’s current lineup includes guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra, bassist Michael Devin, keyboardist Michele Luppi and drummer Tommy Aldridge.

And speaking of Deep Purple…

Deep Purple have topped a Rolling Stone magazine readers’ poll of the top 10 acts that should be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2016. Almost 50 years since they formed in Hertford, readers named Deep Purple as the act they most want to see honored by the Cleveland-based institution with close ties to the magazine.
