The Lead Singer of Whitesnake: 'Memba Him?!

11/4/2008 5:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

David Coverdale (seen here with his identically coiffed ex-wife Tawny Kitaen) became famous for being in the '70s rock band Deep Purple, but is best known as the lead singer of the '80s hair-band Whitesnake. Guess what he looks like now!

What's with that asymmetrical smile? Did he have a stroke "back in the day?"

I can't believe I had such a crush on him in Jr. High. Yikes! I saw a few minutes of some rehab reality show, and Tawny was one of the patients. I remember thinking she was sooo lucky to be naturally beautiful, and with such a hot man. She's had some really poor plastic surgery - I didn't recognize her at first.

We all age, but I prefer to age naturally. They both look odd.

Didn't sex-kittenTawny put her high heel through her husband's foot while he was driving during a domestic dispute a few years back? Cute does not always equal stable. Date a seven and keep your foot. To be fair, it was rumoured he was fooling around.

I remember David Coverdale of Whitesnake. I saw Whitesnake and Quiet Riot live-in-concert at the Great Western Forum in 1984. I also Whitesnake and Motley Crue on May 6th,1987 live-in-concert at the Great Western Forum. I have some of Whitesnake's albums 1 on LP and 3 on pre-recorded-audio-cassette-tapes. I also Coverdale/Page on CD.

56? What's that in dog years. I guess that makes me 30 ... cool. (David Coverdale was in his late 40s/early 50s back in the Tawny Kitaen age.)

The people who grew up with him and are around his age will mostly think he looks just fine. Besides, he's famous for his soaring vocals and rock renditions. I know I appreciated Whitesnake and his vocals, as I used to warble, back. then. (but kept my day job, hehe.) I think he should be proud of his musical accomplishments. Not many rise to the level they did. I hope Mr. Coverdale has a tidy nest egg and a few current consuming passions.
