Whitesnake was once again out on a world wide tour as part of the 2016 Greatest Hits Tour. It was great to see this band again. My second opportunity to photograph this band again. To stand in the photo pit at the feet of Rock N' Roll Hall of Famer (via Deep Purple), David Coverdale is quite a rush. This is the guy who I watched on MTV in the signature Whitesnake videos. Whitesnake rock it that night in front of another sold out crowd at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. Longtime Whitesnake drummer was still with the band and was amazing on the drums. Joel Hoekstra and Reb Beach, also of Winger on guitar that night. Along with Michael Devin on bass and Michele Luppi on keyboards.
Joel Hoekstra is an amazing guitarist, probably one of the best rock guitarists to come out of the 21st century. He is also pretty lively on stage and a lot of fun to photograph. One of my favorite guitarists to photograph.
After all these years, David Coverdale and Whitesnake know how to sell out a show and put on a great sounding show.
