WHITESNAKE's COVERDALE Is Supportive Of Wife's New Career

March 8, 2004

When Cindy Coverdale, wife of WHITESNAKE frontman David Coverdale, decided to write a rock and roll cookbook, "Food That Rocks", she wasn't sure how her new career would go over with her husband. "After all," Cindy laughs, "he was used to being the one who got the attention while I did the wife and mother thing." But Cindy claims that David has been totally supportive and helpful. "Not only did he help me in getting to some of the contributors to the book, but now that the book is out he has been doing interviews and in-stores with us (Cindy and co-author Margie Lapanja),even though it's probably the last thing he feels like doing with a live album and European tour coming up later this year."

"Food That Rocks" is more than just a cookbook, it's the full rock and roll eating experience from tour bus recipes to backstage preferences to those recipes cooked at home. Contributors include everyone from Steve Vai to Sarah McLachlan to Ted Nugent to Joe Perry to Shania Twain and onward.

David insists it's the least he can do for her. "She's spent years running around the world with me, taking care of our home and our son. Now Cindy has a chance to do something for herself and I'm very proud of her." Of course, it isn't all business to them either. "We love to sit around and think of recipes that should have been in the book," laughs David. Among those he's thought of would be Justin Timberlake's blackened breast of chicken, Ozzy's Batatouille and Courtney Love's chopped salad with vicodin dressing.

"Maybe those can make it into Volume Two," he adds.

As previously reported, the next "Food That Rocks" in-store book signing will take place March 18 at the Virgin Megastore on Sunset Blvd. In Los Angeles. In addition to Cindy, David and co-author Margie Lapanja, others in attendance include Tommy Aldridge, Doug Bossi, Frankie Banali, Doug Aldrich, Tony Franklin, Jon Butcher, Timothy Drury, Alex Ligertwood, Marco Mendoza and John X. The artists will be signing copies of the book and of their own CDs and the event begins at 7:30 p.m.
