Whitesnake's David Coverdale: Then

"Here I go again on my own" is the chorus of Whitesnake's biggest hit -- and it's also a pretty good description of David Coverdale's career. The British singer got his big break in 1973 as a replacement vocalist for Deep Purple. After that band fizzled out, Coverdale (pictured in 1981) began touring as a solo artist, forming the band that would soon become Whitesnake. British heavy metal fans loved the band, and in 1987, Whitesnake broke onto the U.S. charts with rock anthems "Here I Go Again" and "Is This Love." After disappointing sales for their follow-up album, the group split up in 1990 -- and Coverdale's marriage to Whitesnake's favorite music video girl, Tawny Kitaen, ended too.
