Can you believe it, we’re not dead?! Well, of course you can believe it, because if you are reading this, you’re clearly alive, and as any awesome Dose of Metal reader, you should know better than believing every stupid thing some crazy asshole tells you.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, and I finished watching the home sex video I taped last night with three hot lesbians, we can move to the more important things, like metal, and our favorite thing to do on a Sunday (except taking beer shits), and it’s doing the recap of the previous week in form of interviews. I got to interview Alex this week, so what are you waiting for, read on!
Frontman of Whitesnake, David Coverdale was recently interviewed with AOL’s Noisecreep, in which he stated that he refuses to believe that people don’t purchase albums any more and only download illegally. He goes on to claim that he’s a huge fan of using itunes and Amazon.
In fact, apparently he’s such a big user of Amazon, that they recently sent him a hand-written letter to thank him for his business.
In other completely unrelated news, apparently Whitesnake‘s new album, Forevermore, sold around 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week. Hmm… Whitesnake sell 12,000 copies, frontman David Coverdale receives hand-written letter thanking him for his business. Coincidence? I’m thinking a certain someone just made a purchase of 12,000 albums from a certain band.
And in case you care about the debates between physical media vs digital, or legally downloading/buying vs illegally downloading, more information on the story can be found at Blabbermouth.
Whitesnake (pictured above) have a new album in the works. It’s called “Forevermore” and David Coverdale had this to say about the title: “Don’t forget, ’tis ONE word.” It’s pretty hard not to forget that, David, as I don’t really care and neither does most of the world.
Joey Jordison is on the cover of Rhythm Magazine and you can get it here. I know what you’re asking yourself: Should I get it? Well, aside from an in-depth look at his gear, Joey also talks about his many projects. In other words, no, no you shouldn’t.
The Damned Things‘ debut album sold 6,200 copies in the United States in the first week of release. It’s apparently #1 on the Top New Artist Albums chart which means out of all of the noobs, they’re the best selling. Not bad for a band with members of Fall Out Boy in it.
Pantera and Damageplan roadie John Graham tells his story working with Dime in both of his bands, as well as being a roommate with Vinnie and other stuff. Read interview here.
If you’re like me, there’s nothing you want more than to read 240 pages about how a bunch of guys looking like girls made a career out of screaming high notes.
So you’ll be dying to know this amazing and insightful book, called “Whitesnake: The Definitive Biography,” will hit stores in the spring of 2011, for only $272. Of course, if you think that’s a bargain and would like to pay more, a more expensive edition with a flight case will be available.
So what are you waiting for? GO.
When asked how they manage to look like that in 2010 and not get beaten up on the street, the members of Whitesnake had no comment.
