David Coverdale’s Classic Jaguar Returns for Whitesnake ‘Shut Up And Kiss Me’ Video

The vintage Jaguar seen in the 2019 Whitesnake video for ‘Shut Up And Kiss Me’ is the same Jag from Whitesnake’s 1982 ‘Here I Go Again’ video.

“That is the famous one, the one from the early videos like ‘Here I Go Again’. That has been in stories for 30 years. Incredible”, David Coverdale tells Noise11.com. “I was basically sitting with my director discussing the idea of storylines. Its such a fun song. I wanted a club performance was we turned by studio into Club Snake and I said why don’t we get the Jag to pay for itself so we put it into a Jaguar dealership and cleaned it up. It is so iconic. All the people you see in the video, that was their reaction. The Famous Car!”

The ‘Shut Up and Kiss Me’ video became a family and friends affair. “Everyone in the video are friends of friends and it was a lot of fun to do. It’s a family affair. My son is in it, his girlfriend of the time, my wife is on the end of the video”, David says.

Now that the Jag has finished its work it has gone back into hibernation. “It is in a temperature-controlled environment somewhere in Reno, Nevada,” he says. “Its back in storage until some Russian oligarch wants it for his girlfriend”.

2019 saw the release of Whitesnake 13th album. ‘Flesh & Blood’ may be a new album, but it sounds like classic Whitenake. “Usually when a classic rock band plays a song from a new album there is a mass exodus to the bar,” David says. “But I’ve got to tell you they have been embraced immediately. It is refreshing for us as a band to be able to play them alongside the more classic, well-known Whitesnake songs. They revitalize the performance of those songs”.

2019 has also been a big touring year for Whitesnake. The band has played in Russia, South America, across Europe and North America. “We are all very passionate. I work with exceptionally good people, great players. Everyday we get a chance to shine. The rhythm section are kicking ass. They really give it the strength, the foundation to build. All the players are great musicians and singers and we all get on well, which is unusual for a band like Whitesnake”.

In 2020 Australia will be treated to Whitesnake live for the first time in 12 years.
