History

Formed by former Whitesnake guitarists Marsden and Moody in 1997 the band is predictably a hard rock band with a blues base. The band was occasionally billed as Whitesnake which, according to the group, was done by greedy promoters. Needless to say David Coverdale was not amused.
The company did some European shows at first. Scottish bassist Murray has a long history in the genre. Phillips is a famous keyboardist who has worked with everyone from Eric Clapton and Phil Collins to Sting and Elton John. He previously played in the Moody Marsden band and Bernie Marsden solo act. Lingwood is another session player who has two dozen albums and projects to his name. Swedish singer Berggren is a member of another reptile Snakes In Paradise.
The first two albums were recorded as The Snakes. However when a Norwegian vs. British rift occured within the band, the Norwegians left with the moniker The Snakes. The remaining members were left no choice but to adopt a new name.
