The previous 3 comments really sum up to me the group that criticize Whitesnake. There seems to be 3 distinct of Whitesnake fans: pre-87 Whitesnake, post-87 Whitesnake and those who like both (which is what I would classify myself as). It seems like the majority of what I call the "haters" are the pre-87 fans. No matter what DC does he will never re-create that era nor has a desire to. To be fair it's the post-87 era that has afforded him the opportunity to still be touring to this day in places like the US, so why not keep recording that type of music. The pre-87 fans will never be pleased no matter what he does next.

Has he voice changed, yes. Does he sound as good live as he used to, no. That could be said for a lot of the singers that came out of the 80s. Joe Elliot is the same. I just received the new Europe Live At Sweden Rock CD/DVD and was surprised how raspy/hoarse Joey Tempest's voice is on some of the tracks. It's just a fact of life for some people as they get older. Like I said, I enjoy the albums with the current lineup and enjoyed the concert I saw back in August. He certainly didn't embarrass himself and with the exception of one song when he had ear monitor problems he was very good (I expected far less because of this board and was pleasantly surprised). Rather than focus on the negative I'd rather enjoy it for what it is.

And for the record I like the live version of Don't Break My Heart Again.
