I have never really been a big Whitesnake fan until early 2010 when my former bandmate Nick “Blaster” Hansen lent me the Whitesnake DVD “Live: In The Still Of The Night”. It opened up my eyes to how much of an awesome vocalist David Coverdale is, and how cool Whitesnake songs actually are. I quickly became obsessed with the live version of “Here I Go Again” from the DVD. It’s a lot heavier than the original 80’s album version, and I began singing it to myself all the time.
It didn’t take me long to decide to record my own version of the song, just for fun. I based my version on the live one I’d come to like so much. I kept it pretty similar to Whitesnake’s, but added my own little touches here and there, and changed the ending to my liking. I also made sure the keyboard sound was really huge.
The recording was done in bits and pieces, because unfortunately I hardly find the time to get into the studio. I eventually finished off the song in May 2010, and proudly stuck it on Facebook to show my friends.
