Agreed mate. His best stuff was with DC on 1987 and although the 2 Blue Murder albums were great...there has been nothing of real worth since. Im not suggesting Sykes is not a great writer...but...his best written songs were definitely with DC on 1987 album while Coverdale himself has written or co-written 100s of absolute classics without JS.

P.S Sykes only wrote 1 song for Thin Lizzy

P.P.S 1987 is still the best all round Whitesnake album i think.
