History

Alaska was the band of former Whitesnake and Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Bernie Marsden. Most fans got to know Marsden through Whitesnake songs Fool For Your Lovin' and Here I Go Again.
Marsden formed Alaska in 1983, initially as SOS, and released the debut album the year after. Marsden is interviewed by Tony Jasper on the British Forces radio and is criticized for not letting loose more with his playing. Vocalist Hawthorne is replaced by former Sweet Savage and Venture singer Rob Cass.
Don Airey joins the ranks for the second outing replacing Bailey who was Whitesnake-bound. Marsden splits Alaska to form MGM with Neil Murray and Mel Galley.
Marsden's band had a live DVD in 2004, simply called Alive, which was recorded at London's Roundhouse.
