Ex-Bandmates Try To Take Whitesnake Guitarist's Name?

(Classic Rock) Whitesnake guitarist Adrian Vandenberg has slammed the former members of his band Vandenberg for attempting to take over the rights to his surname a second time.

He split the four-piece in 1986 in order to join David Coverdale's outfit, and insists he was fully in charge of its creative output during their three-album career. And he's branded the new action "ridiculous," "far-fetched" and "cheesy".

"Before joining my close friend David Coverdale in Whitesnake, I had my own band under my own name, which I founded, wrote all the music and lyrics for, made the album covers, designed the logo etc etc," Vandenberg says. "Here comes the surreal part: a year ago I got summoned by a lawyer representing the three guys I invited to play in my band, trying to claim my own name and trying to prohibit me from using my own name through a lawsuit. Now how bizarre is that?
