I really liked the last Whitesnake album. I thought it was a strong effort, and it played to the band's popular late 80's sound. Personally, I would have preferred something closer to 'Slide It In', which managed to juggle a hard edge with the band's bluesier leanings. That album, along with 'Ready An Willing' are Coverdale's best under the Whitesnake banner, if you ask me. And I wish he'd revisit that older material in concert, instead of pretending the band started in 1984.

BOC holds a special place in my heart, and like you I've seen them more times than I can count. Last time I saw them was about a year and a half ago. I saw two shows in a row, and there were only five songs that were repeated (for obvious reasons)- Godzilla, Reaper, Burnin' for You, Cities On Flame and ETI. I think the band does an exceptional job of keeping the setlist fresh for themselves and the fans. But there is material I wish they'd revisit that I doubt they'll ever do again for one reason or another.

I've thought the same about Glenn at times, but then I'll see that he's done a show where he pulls out some nugget from 'Seventh Star' or the 'Burn' album. So you never know...
