(Classic Rock) David Coverdale has stated that he's not planning to retire next year, despite his previous comments. The Whitesnake mainman had reported that he was aiming to wind up his career after touring in support of The Purple Album, his 2015 tribute record to the band that made his name.

He said in April: "This will be my farewell. I'm looking at retiring next year, on the 30th anniversary of the 1987 album." The veteran vocalist recently told Metropolis Radio "When I was mixing The Purple Album I'm going, 'Man, how long do I have to do this?' But in essence it's re-energised me. I was totally honest - I thought, 'This is probably it.' But I had an incredibly good time on tour with my musicians

"It just makes it more inspiring to look at the future for new stuff with these guys. I have no desire to hang up my rock'n'roll sneakers just yet." Read more comments about the retirement plans from a separate interview here.
