Podcast 391 – Bernie Marsden on the blues boom, “mailbox money”, UFO and Whitesnake

Bernie’s memoir – ‘Where’s My Guitar?’ – is just out in paperback and this highly entertaining encounter with the old rock and roll trouper features his early bands (Clockwork Mousetrap, Skinny Cat), Cream and Fleetwood Mac at Dunstable’s California Ballroom, auditioning for Renaissance and East Of Eden (then turning the job down), ‘secret police’ on the Wild Turkey tour, thumping Phil Mogg, Mickie Most’s butler and Rolls Royce car phone, sessions for Hot Chocolate, the Spinal Tap moment of Whitesnake’s Lovehunter sleeve, the extraordinary tale of his co-writing Here I Go Again and the perils of trying to prise Tony “Dear Boy” Ashton out of a pub.
