Dynamic Duo

Coverdale/Page, featuring former Whitesnake star David Coverdale and ex-Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, is making big news with its "Coverdale/Page" debut album that, musically, takes a page out of the old Zeppelin book. It entered at No. 6 on the pop chart and premiered at the top of the hard-rock chart, bumping perennial favorite, Pearl Jam's "Ten." Also, to no one's surprise, "The Bodyguard" soundtrack bounced back into the top pop spot after being outsold for a few weeks by the Sting and Clapton albums.
