VIDEO: Whitesnake tease upcoming announcement

Whitesnake have issued a video teasing an upcoming announcement on February 25.

The band may reveal details on that date regarding their first project with former Night Ranger guitarist Joel Hoekstra, who replaced Doug Aldrich following his exit last spring.

“One of the first, if not the first, guitarists to put his name forward after hearing that Doug Aldrich had left the band, was an exceptionally talented musician whom we had met briefly last year when his band opened for Whitesnake in Arizona,” revealed Coverdale last August.

"Everyone was very impressed by him, not only for his ability to play amazing guitar, but, also, his very agreeable personality & he was definitely foremost in our minds when we began to search for Doug’s replacement in Whitesnake.”

“We jammed together & were mutually impressed enough to ask him to join Whitesnake on the spot,” he added. “This was May 30th. 2014.”
