David Coverdale appeared in a new episode of SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk”, where he discussed Whiteshane’s future after more than a year after the band canceled several European shows and pulled out of a previously announced North American tour with the Scorpions.
About the Whitesnake current status, Coverdale explained:
“Well, my band and I are in touch all the time. There is still a Whitesnake and there are still offers coming. I can’t entertain anything until I get my physical aspect together.
“I had a fall recently, which I don’t think helped my… I’ve got two torn rotator cuffs, which would certainly compromise my performance,” he explained. “But arthritis, all this kind of stuff’s kicking in.
“My heart goes out to Steven (Tyler]) after (the recent Aerosmith tour) cancelation. It’s so awful, getting older and having this burden of responsibility to try to be as good as you can so you don’t disappoint anybody. And I know how he feels and I sent my love to him through our friends, mutual friends.
“But I can’t commit to anything until I know how my health is. The last thing I wanna do is go on tour and have to do what happened last year, which was come home, tail between my legs. It was heartbreaking. And being sick for a year didn’t really help matters.”
