It’s been a busy day today with people quitting bands and here’s another sadness for you. Brian Tichy has announced that he’s leaving Whitesnake in order to focus on Something Unto Nothing (S.U.N.), the band he started with Sass Jordan. Bassist and singer Michael Devin, also affilated with S.U.N., will remain with Whitesnake.
Said Whitesnake mainman David Coverdale: “We are truly sad to see [Brian] go, but, we fully support the pursuit of his ambitions and sincerely wish him well. His fearless drumming brought a relentless driving edge and to our music that we fully embraced. Good luck, Brian… May the S.U.N.shine brightly on you!!”
Whitesnake has begun the search for a new drummer. There are several musicians already being considered.
A spokesman for the band said that this will not affect the forthcoming tour dates for 2013.
