When it became known that Vivian Campbell had left Whitesnake and been replaced by six-string master Steve Vai in 1989, the rock world and guitar fans everywhere waited with bated breath for the new line-up's first album together. Vai was supposed to join forces with Whitesnake's other guitarist, Adrian Vandenberg, but a freak injury to Vandenberg's hands prior to the sessions meant that Vai handled all the guitar duties himself.
While the album wasn't on par with such past releases as 1984's SLIDE IT IN and 1987's smash self-titled release, SLIP OF THE TONGUE was another hit--the band, and especially singer David Coverdale, was once again in fine Zeppelin-esque form. A re-recording of an earlier UK hit, "Fool For Your Loving," was an MTV favorite, while such raunchy rockers as the album-opening title track, "Cheap An' Nasty," and "Kittens Got Claws" fitted in well with the then-thriving party/glam metal climate. Once the world tour for SLIP OF THE TONGUE wrapped up, Coverdale would quietly retire Whitesnake.
