Brian Tichy, the band’s most recent drummer, left the band in early January 2013, after breaking his collarbone in a biking accident. Tichy stated that he was leaving the Snakes to pursue his band SUN, in which he plays guitar.
Tommy Aldridge has been Whitesnake’s drummer already for two separate stints; one in ’80s and the other beginning in 2002.
Coverdale posted the announcement on Whitesnake’s website,www.whitesnake.com, yesterday.
Coverdale stated: “When I asked all the band members to put together their wish-list of potential drummers for us…every one, without exception, had TA at the top of the list…Also, most of the fans who communicated their suggestions on WS.com wanted Tommy back in the band…So, without further ado, we are delighted to welcome him back with us…It seems it is our destiny to work together…This is going to be so much fun…Welcome back, TA!!!”
Tommy Aldrige said, “I can’t express how honored & grateful I am to be back in the Snake fold. Working with DC & Co has always been a labor of love. SO stoked to be back & finish what we started!!”
