Whitesnake scored a huge hit with their 1987 power ballad “Is This Love.” However, frontman David Coverdale recently revealed the tune was intended for a different artist. “The original idea was for Tina Turner,” Coverdale explained in a newly posted video released via the Whitesnake TV YouTube channel. “My friends and associates at EMI Records were looking for songs to follow up Tina's astonishing success story. The album with 'What's Love Got to Do With It' was huge, global, and they were looking for songs.”
