Brian Tichy Explains Exit From Whitesnake
Whitesnake have begun the search for a new drummer, with several musicians already being considered. A spokesman said the lineup change will not affect forthcoming tour dates for 2013.
Now, Tichy has posted the following statement regarding his plans: "My decision to leave Whitesnake has already been announced by David Coverdale but I wanted to at least give a bit of my own explanation and be clear on why this decision was made because it is a simple yet heavy one; heavy cuz it involves jumping off a cliff while you were seemingly and supposedly fine on solid ground. It's a reason that you will only understand if you exist with any amount of dreams, goals, ambition and desire to get to that place you haven't been.
First off, Whitesnake will obviously be fine without me. I gave 100% while in the band, with full intent on making David and the Snakes proud I was behind them as their drummer. If still in WS, I would yet again be giving DC and the guys 100% in 2013, and I'd have a blast doing it! I will never complain about being paid to be an adult that plays in the bands he used to practice to since he was 9 years old! And I will never ever give less than 100% when behind a kit of drums because it is my life. It ties everything together for me. The change of musicians in bands is nothing new. My idols left this band too. But I do think my reason is a little different than the others'. more on this story
