Whitesnake are one of rocks most successful, enduring and complicated rock bands. Formed in 1978 by ex-Deep Purple frontman David Coverdale, the band soon became one of Europes most successful live acts before Coverdale decamped to America and relaunched the band in the late 80's with the multi-platinum success 1987. Since then the band has become established as a leading rock act around the world. In 2015 the band released The Purple Album, a reworking of classic songs from David's Deep Purple days. The subsequent world tour was one of the bands most successful, starting in America and finishing in the UK at the end of December. Rufus Publications is delighted to annouce the first ever official Whitesnake book, a 300 page plus visual chronicle of the band as they played on this spectacular tour. The book is available in two editions, including a fully signed version and will ship in December 2017.
