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.
