David Coverdale says he has projects planned for the next 3 to 5 years and one of them is a Whitesnake Farewell album.
On an episode of the Totally 80’s podcast he said that he wants former members to be on the record.
He plans to start working on it as soon as he’s finished with The Purple Album which celebrates Deep Purple.
He said, “I'm soon to be talking with my band about the idea of a farewell Whitesnake studio album and to invite some former members to participate to make it more complete.”
He went on to say: “I think, rather than just farewell to this current chapter, it's farewell to a lot of guys that have been involved. I'm not interested in trying to do it on my own. It's a collaborative band thing. I see the big picture. I want the best for all of them.”
Last year, Whitesnake had to cancel several European shows and pulled out of a previously announced North American tour due to what was described at the time, as Coverdale's “continued treatment for a persistent upper respiratory infection.”
