Sad news from the rock world.
David Coverdale says that 2021 would be an “appropriate” year for him to retire.
In a new interview with the Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station, he said:
“I have a feeling it’s gonna take a little while to get things back to any semblance of what we knew before. So what we have to do is think outside the box. I have to get this surgery and get up and running. And what better age for the WHITESNAKE lead singer to go out and retire on — 69. [Laughs]”
Pressed about whether he is really thinking about hanging it up next year, David said:
“I’ve always written songs that challenge me as a vocalist, and I’m 68 now. So I think 69 would be appropriate for WHITESNAKE‘s lead singer [to retire], wouldn’t you?”
