Bernard John "Bernie" Marsden (born 7 May 1951) is an English rock guitarist. Having played with Glenn Cornick''s Wild Turkey in 1974, he then played with Babe Ruth, from 1975â76, before becoming an original member of Paice, Ashton & Lord in 1977 and then joining the hard rock band, Whitesnake. In more recent years, Marsden has toured with his bands Company of Snakes, M3 (both formed with fellow former Whitesnake members Micky Moody and Neil Murray) and Bernie Marsden''s Whitesnake, and performed with Elkie Brooks. Over the years he has taken part in a number of sessions and has released a handful of solo albums (And About Time, Too!, Look at Me Now, Green & Blues, Stacks). He has also collaborated with Micky Moody on a number of Marsden-Moody live and studio projects. On the Sweden Rock Festival on 10 June 2011 Bernie Marsden played with Whitesnake for the first time since 1981, thus becoming the second of only two former Whitesnake band members who have played with Whitesnake in recent years, the other person being Adrian Vandenberg, who also played with them on the Sweden Rock Festival.
