Whitesnake - Is This Love



A music video was also made, featuring Coverdale's then-girlfriend actress Tawny Kitaen. The music video, which was directed by Marty Callner, depicts the band playing the song on a misty stage, intercut with scenes of Coverdale singing, Kitaen dancing and the two of them together. Due to Coverdale firing the other members of the band before the album was released, he is the only Whitesnake member present on both the recording and in the music video; this was the case for all music videos released for songs from the 1987 album (except for "Here I Go Again", Vandenberg performed the guitar solo on the recording and later appeared in the music video as well).




Whitesnake - Is This Love



"Is This Love" reached number 13 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart.[8] It also peaked at number 38 on the Adult Contemporary chart in the US;[9] despite this, in the years since, "Here I Go Again", which did not chart on the AC chart at the time of its release, gets more airplay on adult contemporary stations, most notably iHeartRadio-owned stations.


Ive heard this song before when i was like 10years old. Im 38yo now. I heard it again today.Brings back memories.Its a great song, but compared to other 80s rock ballads, isnt as popular .But this song is such a good song.


The album was generally met with positive reviews. According to music journalist Mick Wall, the album "wasn't just best Whitesnake album, it was one of the best rock albums of its era", while "Here I Go Again" became a "signature tune for Coverdale and Whitesnake. It's pretty, with beautifully soulful lead vocal for sure, but it's the 'My Way'-type ingredient of the lyrics ... that does it to ya every time".[45] J. D. Considine favorably writing for Rolling Stone argued that although the album is perhaps lacking in originality having "every worthwhile mannerism and lick in the heavy-rock vocabulary" and a mixture of styles reminiscent of Led Zeppelin, Scorpions and Foreigner, "what makes it such a guilty pleasure, though, is that Coverdale isn't simply stealing licks; he and guitarist John Sykes understand the structure, pacing and drama of the old Led Zeppelin sound and deserve credit for concocting such a convincing simulacrum".[62] Steve Huey and Bradley Torreano writing for AllMusic gave both North American and European versions the same rating of 4.5 stars out of 5, being "a collection of loud, polished hard rockers, plus the band's best set of pop hooks",[55] however felt the European version is superior due to better tracklist flow and two more songs, especially "Looking for Love", which "a nice slow build to a blustery chorus makes this a classic David Coverdale ballad".[56] The 20th,[61] and 30th anniversary,[35][63] reissues were also favorably received. The exception to these reviews was Robert Christgau, who in his negative review deemed that "the attraction of this veteran pop-metal has got to be total predictability. The glistening solos, the surging crescendos, the familiar macho love rhymes, the tunes you can hum before the verse is over--not one heard before, yet every one somehow known".[57]


WHITESNAKE founder and lead singer David Coverdale had 16 tracks remixed and remastered for this collection, including "Is This Love", which was a hit, reaching No. 9 on the U.K. singles chart and No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. "Is This Love" was WHITESNAKE's second-biggest U.S. hit after "Here I Go Again", which topped the charts.


WHITESNAKE will team up with the SCORPIONS for a North American tour this summer and fall. The two-month-long Live Nation-produced trek will kick off on August 14 in Toronto, with additional concerts in Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, Dallas, and Denver, among others. Also appearing on the bill will be the Swedish band THUNDERMOTHER.

I've just uploaded 4 rigs, presets might be a better term - they are tweaked rigs OF OTHERS that nicely fit this great Whitesnake tune, which my band plays. I take no credit for the amp or cab profiling, which were wonderfully done by people more talented than I. I merely tweaked settings for playing this one tune.


The harmonizer patch is my favorite - use it playing the higher note, versus the lower which is preferred by many, including Paults, whose guidance helped me with this patch. Thanks Paul! It is for use in Em, the original key. Note: you will probably need to turn volumes down according to your guitar. I will re-tweak the volumes and re-upload on the Rig later. I hope you enjoy!


A lot of people on this forum was picking on me for my profiles, but I have found at least 7 recently uploaded profiles that the actual profile was made for about 3-3,5 years ago and some of them have my name (KB) as amp and cab creator.


I earlier compared this high volume to the Egnator Armaggedon - I meant the Marshall JMP86 Aldrich by Peter W. Have you tried that rig ? Amazing tone, killer really... but talk about loud!! I wonder how he got it so loud without clipping.

DrBertson - please take note of the changes I made to the original post which began this thread. I hope you, and anyone else reading, will not be offended in any way. You and others have done some fabulous work that is greatly appreciated.
