WHEN THE WORLD WAS BITTEN BY THE HARD-ROCKING, HARD-TOURING AND HARDDRINKING WHITESNAKE, IT WAS MICKY MOODYa€™S GRITTY RIFFS AND SIGNATURE BLUESY SLIDE-GUITAR THAT HELPED PROPEL THEM TO INTERNATIONAL STARDOM, AS THEY SHOULDERED ASIDE CONTEMPORARY RIVALS, GOING ON TO SELL MILLIONS OF ALBUMS WORLDWIDE. But before Whitesnakea€”and life on the road with former Deep Purple singer David Coverdalea€”became a chaotic reality, Moody had already formed a teenaged band with Freea€™s Paul Rodgers, played with Juicy Lucy, been a founder member of Snafu and worked as an in-demand session musician. This saw him play with performers whose egos, neurosesa€”and, in some cases, supreme talenta€”led to some memorable encounters, giving him the opportunity to contribute, with some gusto, to the hedonism of the Seventies. His musical footprint has been nothing short of epic. But how did such a party-loving, excess-fueled outfit as Whitesnake conquer the mighty world of hard rocka€”and at what cost? Outrageous stories about catastrophic narcotic mix-ups and infamous groupies come as thick and fast as the banda€™s musical output itself. However, with success comes a price, and as global domination, commercial success and late-night carousing began to give way to suspicion, greed and the repercussions of excess on the road, serious fallout was inevitable. In his memoir Snakes and Ladders, Micky relates his musical odyssey with fondness and a wry sense of humour. From, guitar lessons to guitar hero, this is his story of climbing the laddera€”and surviving the a€™Snake.After the show, we wined and dined, then wined some more (courtesy of EMI), then headed for a club (probably the only one in that particular town), dragging along with us that somewhat reluctant custodian of the credit card, EMI Man.
