Tommy Aldridge, Whitesnake Reunion: Drummer Rejoins Group
Once a snake, always a snake?
This will be the third time Aldridge is back in the group, and he couldn’t be more than excited to play again with them.
“I can’t express how honored & grateful I am to be back in the Snake fold,” Aldridge said in an announcement on the band’s website. “Working with DC & Co has always been a labor of love. SO stoked to be back & finish what we started!!”
On the site, David Coverdale shared mutual feelings.
“When I asked all the band members to put together their wishlist of potential drummers for us, every one, without exception, had TA [Aldridge] at the top of the list,” he wrote. “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!!!”
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Aldridge was part of the group from 1987-1991, and during their 25th anniversary tour in 2002.
Whitesnake is set to tour overseas May 1-June 10.
