Whitesnake are an English hard rock band formed in 1978 by David Coverdale, after his departure from his previous band Deep Purple.

By the turn of the decade, the band's commercial fortunes changed and they released a string of UK top 10 albums, Ready an' Willing (1980), Come an' Get It (1981), Saints & Sinners (1982) and Slide It In (1984), the last of which was their first to chart in the US and is certified 2x platinum.
