Former Whitesnake Guitarist Reacts To David Coverdale Claim

(Classic Rock) Former Whitesnake guitarist Micky Moody has responded to David Coverdale's claim that he refused an opportunity to shake hands.

The former bandmates parted company in 1983 following the recording and touring of Whitesnake's Slide It In album. Coverdale recently said he'd tried to make contact with Moody to settle their differences, but the guitarist "feels there's too much water under the bridge, and presumably he would rather not shake my hand."

Now Moody has responded to the comments. He tells Classic Rock: "I've just been alerted to an article on Classic Rock's news page which reads 'Micky Moody won't shake my hand.' Although it pales into insignificance when placed alongside Ozzy's 'I bit the head of a bat' show-stopper, I feel I should respond that I have my own reasons for not wishing to re-establish a working relationship.

"To set the record straight, the reporting of comments regarding my return to Whitesnake in 1983 are somewhat inaccurate.

"Beyond this, I prefer not to discuss in the public domain although, for avoidance of any doubt, my time with Whitesnake and the legacy of those halcyon days are forever part of my very soul. I also prefer, as always, to let my fingers do the talking; as experience has taught me that it's the proper and most dignified way to do things." more..
