5.0 out of 5 stars Love 1987? then you'll love this, 21 May 2009
This review is from: Blue Murder (Audio CD)
1987 by Whitesnake is one of my favourite albums and the whole guitar style and sound literally blue me away. The guitarist was John Skyes and many say when he left (was sacked) from Whitesnake they never did return to the form of that album. Whether bitter or not he almost replicated the "Whitesnake 1987" sound on his Blue Murder debut. Songs like opener Riot and closer Black Hearted Woman could have easily made it onto the Whitesnake album and you can almost hear Coverdale singing them. Saying that John Sykes voice is almost as good. Praise must also be given to the supporting musicians on this album especially the bass player Tony Franklin who makes an excellent contribution. If you like guitar based hard rock/metal then this is a definate purchase.
