Whitesnake have officially announced that bassist Uriah Duffy & drummer Chris Frazier are going their separate ways from the band after a fun filled & successful journey together.

Whitesnake wish Uriah & Chris every success in pursuing their individual musical careers & express their sincere gratitude for the exceptional contribution they both made to the legacy of the band.

Whitesnake are currently in the studio writing & recording the follow up to their award winning ‘GOOD TO BE BAD’ album, which is expected to be released throughout the world on the FRONTIERS label in Spring 2011 to coincide with their return to touring.

At this time Whitesnake are still exploring their options for the position of new Bass Player/Singer…

“One never enters into a relationship expecting it to end, but, as in other avenues of life, these things happen…Often it is not necessarily any one persons fault, it just unfolds that the relationship has naturally run it’s course…I really wish Chris & Uriah well in everything they do…they are great guys & exceptional musicians…”

“As we bid a fond farewell to the guys, it is with great pleasure we welcome Briian Tichy to the band…I’ve personally been a fan of his work since I first heard him destroy a drum kit years ago with Ozzy & thro’ his amazing career with Pride & Glory, Billy Idol & Foreigner…I have no doubt he will help take the Snake to new & dizzying heights with his personality & powerhouse playing…& I believe he will inspire me to boldly go where no singer has gone before…”
