Creativity and borrowing
As a big fan of Whitesnake (and David Coverdale), I was always aware that he “borrowed” heavily from blues – both music and singers.
However, in this interview, DC confesses to borrowing from spaghetti Westerns too!
I realized that “borrowing” and improving doesn’t have the same stigma in music! Especially, if you compare music to other arts (and God forbid, technology). There are no patents when it comes to on A-B-C.
