Whitesnake: Slip of the Tongue (Geffen)

Bud Scoppa, Spin, February 1990

A VENERABLE Brit rock band whose only constant was crusty-throated journeyman David Coverdale (his main claim to fame being a 1973-1976 stint as Deep Purple's front man), Whitesnake seemed to have slithered under a rock for good when their record company decided to give the act a new coat of scales.
