Recently in an interview on Appetite for Distortion, Whitesnake legend David Coverdale shared more details on the upcoming farewell tour. He indicated that it’s not the end of Whitesnake.
The interviewer asked the following question:
“Before we conclude, can you put to bed the recent headline that Whitesnake could continue without David Coverdale?!”
Here is what Coverdale replied:
“Well, no, no! The circumstance is that the music’s going to continue, and I’m still going to be doing projects, very likely with these guys. I’m just not going to tour. I haven’t even spoken to the band in depth. We have a daily text thread with each other which is mostly amusing themes. Really, I don’t know. See, I work with Foreigner, my good friends if they’re coming over for the 2022 European tour; if Mick Jones isn’t on there, there isn’t an original member there, but the audience loves them.
Why? Because they love the music, and the music is played respectfully. I don’t know. These are questions I’ll talk to the band. They might go, ‘f*ck you, DC!’ You never know! I’m truly excited because we have some new flavors to bring out, which I think is going to be an amazing addition to an already kick-a*s cake!”
