David Coverdale Net Worth: David Coverdale is an English musician who has a net worth of $18 million dollars. Born in Cleveland, England, in 1951, David Coverdale is best known for headlining the famous rock band Whitesnake. He began taking singing seriously when he was about 14 years old and joined several local bands, including Vintage 67, The Government and Fabulosa Brothers. In 1973, Coverdale auditioned for Deep Purple, and his first album with the band, "Burn", released a year later. Both "Burn" and follow-up effort "Stormbringer" went gold in the U.S. and U.K. Deep Purple broke up in 1976, and Coverdale began his solo career with his debut album, "White Snake", releasing in 1977. He and guitarist Micky Moody wrote all songs on the album. His follow-up, "Northwinds", was more successful a year later. In 1978, Coverdale formed Whitesnake with Moody and Bernie Marsden. In 1980, they released their most successful single at the time, "Fool for Your Loving", which hit number 13 in the U.K. Four years later, their album "Slide It In" charted at number 40 in the U.S. Later, Coverdale suffered from a sinus infection that put recording on hiatus. The band finally achieved their desired success in the U.S. when "Whitesnake" (1987) went multiplatinum with hits like "Is This Love" and "Here I Go Again". Whitesnake disbanded in 1990 but came back together a year later for a collaboration with Jimmy Page that produced the "Coverdale-Page" album in 1993, which eventually went platinum in the U.S. Whitesnake returned again in 1994 with a "Greatest Hits" album and again in 1997 for "Restless Heart". After another solo album, Coverdale reunited with the band in the early 2000s to tour Europe and North America. The band released "Good to be Bad" in 2008, more than a decade since their last studio album. Coverdale has been married to his third wife, Cindy, since 1997, and has one son with her. He became a U.S. citizen in 2007 and lives in Nevada.
