English rock and blues guitarist Bernie Marsden (best known for his song-writing with WHITESNAKE — having written, or co-written with Coverdale, many of the band’s biggest hits — including “Here I Go Again“) — will be headlining next year’s HRH BLUES FESTIVAL.
The other great Whitesnake guitarist — Micky Moody — will also be appearing.
Bernie Marsden got his first professional gig with UK heavy metal outfit UFO. He then went on to play with Glenn Cornick’s Wild Turkey in 1974, before he joined Babe Ruth in 1975.
Bernie joined Whitesnake in 1978 and contributed to eight albums — from Snakebite (1978) to Saints and Sinners (1983).
Guitarist Micky Moody is also a former member of Whitesnake and also Juicy Lucy and Snafu.
He has performed alongside almost ‘anyone who is anyone’ in the business, from Eric Clapton, Alvin Lee and Rick Wakeman to Jon Lord, Newton Faulkner via Uriah Heep, Alice Cooper and many others.
Recently he has been active with Snakecharmer (we reviewed their superb album here.)
Other headliners for HRH BLUES 2016 include THE YARDBIRDS, DR. FEELGOOD and TEN YEARS AFTER.
Plus LARRY MILLER (Larry is covered in our latest print-copy edition ‘Summer Blues 2015’) and VARGAS BLUES BAND and THE GRAVELTONES.
