David Coverdale, current Whitesnake and former Deep Purple singer, turns 61 this coming Sept. 22.

With a career that spans nearly four decades, Coverdale first found his fame as Deep Purple’s third lead singer in 1973. With him at the wheel, the band continued to be one of the most popular of their time.

Around the time of their break up in 1976, Coverdale went solo and recorded his first solo album, entitled ‘White Snake.’ Sound familiar?

By forming Whitesnake, Coverdale would steadily gain significant popularity, with the 1987 self-titled album that featured ‘Here I Go Again’ and ‘Still of the Night’ finally making the band a true headliner here in the states. For years, Coverdale would lead the band to many more successes (and lineup changes.)
