Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
This time, we come to the end of Chris Welch’s 2008 notes in the CD insert, starting from where we left off, about what happened after Juicy Lucy, with Snafu:
“During a Snafu German tour Micky got a call from old pal from Redcar, vocalist David Coverdale. He was asked to join Coverdale’s new band Whitesnake. This evolved into one of the most successful groups of the 1980s and Micky co-wrote one of their biggest hits “Fool For Your Loving” (1980).
“Moody: “The Whitesnake experience was great because it meant I became a rock star for a few years. The camaraderie in the early days was fantastic. I had known Coverdale since the Tramline days, when he came down to the Marquee a couple of times, as our roadie. But then Whitesnake started to go sour and people got tired.”
“Moody quit and formed Moody/Marsden with fellow Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden. They also toured as the Snakes or the Company of Snakes, playing classic Whitesnake material. Micky worked with Bob Young in the Young and Moody Band and also released a solo album “I Eat Them For Breakfast” (2001).
“Micky Moody still records and runs his own band. In 2008 he embarked on a tour of Japan. “I still do gigs, but not so many nowadays, because people would rather book a tribute band than people playing something new.”

Next time, we shall see if there is anything novel in the liner notes of the CD version of the first Tramline album.
