I'm certainly no Whitesnake hater, up until and including 1987 they could do no wrong for me. But imo, his voice was on the wane on the Slip Of The Tongue tour and it's just got worse & worse. Now of course I know it's going to get worse as he gets older but what's frustrating is that just when you think he's started going in the right direction with Restless Heart/Starkers In Tokyo, a more bluesy direction that will suit his voice/years better - he goes and abandons it for the 1987 "heavy metal" Whitesnake. He just can't do those songs justice anymore.

As for the current line-up, yes they're all great musicians (love the Lion albums with Doug & of course all the Winger stuff) but for me, it's just not the Whitesnake I like. Just listen to the version of Don't Break My Heart Again on the Live...In The Still Of The Night DVD from a few years ago & compare it to the version on Come An' Get It, 'nuff said.
