Former DEEP PURPLE and current WHITESNAKE singer David Coverdale is featured in the new episode of BangerTV’s “Sam Dunn’s Metal Journeys”. Sam visits David’s home studio to talk about his life in beautiful Lake Tahoe, Nevada — bear attacks and all.
“Sam Dunn’s Metal Journeys” follows documentary filmmaker Sam Dunn as he travels the world exploring the global metal community. It continues the mission Banger Films began with its 2008 feature documentary “Global Metal”: to examine what metal means in different cultures by meeting with the musicians and other passionate metalheads who’ve devoted their lives to this music.
Banger Films‘ documentaries include two on heavy metal, 2006’s “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey” and 2008’s “Global Metal”, 2010’s “Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage” and 2009’s “Iron Maiden: Flight 666”, as well as the TV documentary miniseries “Metal Evolution”.
WHITESNAKE is continuing to tour in support of its twelfth studio album, “The Purple Album”, which was released in May 2015 via Frontiers Music Srl. The effort is billed as “a re-imagination of classic songs from Coverdale’s time as the lead singer for DEEP PURPLE’s Mark III and Mark IV studio albums.” Coverdale was DEEP PURPLE’s frontman from late 1973 to early 1976 and sang on the albums “Burn”, “Stormbringer” and “Come Taste The Band”.
