BERNIE MARSDEN - David Coverdale To Contribute To New Solo Album Page 3

"Look At Me Now and And About Time Too... I think more drummers bought those albums than any other people," chuckles Marsden, asked about Phillips and Powell. "The second time around, it's almost like a Whitesnake album really, without David, you know. I think I brought in a couple of mates to play, but Cozy played on a couple tracks, which was great. And it was just done very quickly. But I like the album now. There's some kind of vibe about it, that it shouldn't really have, because it was done fairly quickly. But maybe that's the secret-in and out. I like the song 'Look At Me Now'; should have been a Whitesnake song. I was naive enough to think, no, I'll keep that one for me, but Dave would've done a great job on that. And I would've sold a lot more copies (laughs)."

Were any of them put forward as Whitesnake songs, from that second album?

"Only 'Look At Me Now', and David expressed some interest in that, and I said, no, that's the title of the album, need to keep that one. I'm the big loser in that one, really (laughs)."
