David Coverdale Bio

David Coverdale (born 22 September 1951 in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorkshire) is an English rock vocalist most famous for his work with the English hard rock band Deep Purple, and his later band Whitesnake.

David Coverdale was born into a family that supported artistic expression. Upon reaching adulthood, he took up the guitar, and was briefly a student at Middlesbrough Art College. As an aspiring musician, he was largely unknown, playing in various anonymous teenage bands, living in Marske-by-the-Sea and working in a trendy clothes shop called Gentry in Redcar, Teesside, until answering an advertisement in a 1973 copy of Melody Maker to audition as a vocalist. Not until he arrived did he find the band was the famous hard rock band, Deep Purple, whose vocalist Ian Gillan had given notice to leave the band.
