Name the Riff

Posted on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 at 10:07AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments2 Comments

So, one of my hair metal tunes of the moment is Whitesnake's "Still of the Night."

The thing that drives me crazy is the song's baseline.

 I know it's Led Zeppelin inspired.

It's well documented that David Coverdale is obsessed with Zepplelin.

The question remains...did Coverdale steal the famous guitar parts from the eclectic (and fabulous!) "Kashmir?"

It's the question of the day...and our first installment of "Name that Riff."

ace song Allyson, was jus flickin froo ur 1st post's n noticed this.

in my opinion the first parts of stil of the night r poached from black dog by Led Zeppelin with the whole guitar asking and voice answerin thing and the riff is also quite fiddily like black dog. Then when it brakes dwn to the drums n synths wi Coverdales random screams and such that reminds me of whole lotta love breakdwn. the huge riffage that follows could b influenced by Kashmir right enuf too.

hope this has helped (that is if ur even still wondering ha ha)
