Whitesnake is a benchmark for 70’s and 80’s hard rock. Founded by the vocalist David Coverdale in 1978, after his departure from Deep Purple, Whitesnake has had a succesful career almost uninterrupted up to now. Characterized by constants changes in line-up, with the founder Coverdale as the only permanent member, some of the best known hard rock musicians of both sides of the Atlantic have been in Whitesnake. “Here I go Again” was a single from the sixth record of the band, Saints and Sinners (1982). Later on, it was re-recorded for the homonymous L.P. Whitesnake (1987), with which they assaulted the U.S. market and it was based on hair spray and dizzy guitar solos. Composed by the guitar player, Bernie Mardsen, member of the original lineup , the song is a power-ballad with a sticky refrain . Whereas the 1982’s version has a smell of hard rock, blues and some soul, the 1987’s version is more heavy metal and glam- metal influenced, focused on the taste of U.S. The single reached the number 1 of the Billboard Hot 100.
