Whitesnake announce lineup change ahead of farewell tour

Whitesnake have announced a lineup change in the band as they prepare to launch a farewell tour next year.

"Whitesnake & bassist Michael Devin have decided to go their separate ways after an amazingly successful decade together…,” shared the band on social media. “We all wish Michael every success in his life & all his endeavours. Apart from numerous tours, Michael applied his talent to studio albums ‘Forevermore’... ‘The Purple Album’ & ‘Flesh & Blood’. We sincerely thank him for being part of our journey & for all his exceptional gifts he brought to Whitesnake...

“God speed, Michael... Know we love you & will miss you... & we wish you well. Once a snake... always a snake...

“Whitesnake have secured a new bass player who will be announced very soon.”

Longtime member Devin joined the group in 2010, taking over the position previously filled by Uriah Duffy.

The current Whitesnake lineup features founder/singer David Coverdale, guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra, keyboardist Michele Luppi, multi-instrumentalist Dino Jelusick, and drummer Tommy Aldridge.

Whitesnake recently released an expanded 25th anniversary reissue of their 1997 album, “Restless Heart.”
