Tommy Aldridge has replaced Brad Tichy behind the kit for Whitesnake, the band has announced. The switch marks Aldridge's third stint with the group.
"I can't express how honored & grateful I am to be back in the Snake fold," Aldridge said in the 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!!"
David Coverdale added his own sentiments on Aldridge's return to the site:
"When I asked all the band members to put together their wish list of potential drummers for us, every one, without exception, had TA [Aldridge] at the top of the list."
Aldridge's first time with the group came from 1987-1991 and he rejoined the band for their 25th anniversary tour in 2002. Catch him and the rest of the band on dates from May 1 to June 10 when they tour Japan and Europe.
