BraveWords senior writer and respected metal author Martin Popoff has released his first book of 2015, a WHITESNAKE biography entitiled Sail Away: Whitesnake’s Fantastic Voyage.

From the back cover of this UK import, published by Soundcheck Books:

"In Sail Away: Whitesnake’s Fantastic Voyage - the first ever full biography of the band - top music writer Martin Popoff tells the tale of rock legend David Coverdale, from his DEEP PURPLE roots to the two distinct incarnations of his mega-popular creation.

WHITESNAKE began life as a UK-based blues rock outfit, until the lad from England’s chilly east coast transported the act to America’s sunny west coast in search of fame, fortune, big videos and even bigger hair. Coverdale found them all, and 1987’s self-titled album went eight times platinum in the US alone before the band’s bright star waned in the face of grimy grunge.

In this book - his 45th - Popoff conducted 30 interviews of major characters, including Coverdale himself, to piece together the band’s roller-coaster history. He follows their story through the hirings and firings, the splits and reunions and the image changes which have enabled Coverdale, through his WHITESNAKE vehicle, to position himself firmly within the pantheon of hard rock greats. If you’ve rocked out to anthems like “Here I Go Again,” “Fool For Your Loving,” “Still Of The Night” or “Slow An’ Easy” this is essential reading."

Says Popoff: "Yes, for the job at hand, I interviewed (and many of them multiple times) David Coverdale, Bernie Marsden, Neil Murray, Micky Moody, Adrian Vandenberg, Steve Vai, John Kalodner, Doug Aldrich, Keith Olsen, Ian Paice and many others, and did my usual album by chapter, ever song touched down upon, job on ‘er. So what are you waiting for... Come An Get It!"
