Guitarist Doug Aldrich is leaving Whitesnake .Aldrich has posted the following message on his Facebook page :Well I guess news that I have left Whitesnake was leaked
I planned and hoped DC and I could release a joint statement. We will as soon as possible, but everything happened so fast that we arent ready.
Firstly, thanks to my big bro David for such a killer run together!! So many songs, tours, projects, always inspiring and pushing each other!
Mostly I was to thank the loyal WS Choir and fans around the world. You have been so amazing to me and its been an honor to play for you with WS.
I love you guys and Ill see you all again. Thank you so very much for your unending support.
Also, not sure how or where the info started about a solo career, but this is not true or correct information.
I have no plans at this time to go solo Im just not in the Whitesnake/David Coverdale band anymore.
Ill let you guys know what Im doing ASAP, but for now please know I very much appreciate your support and will hopefully do a statement with My Brutal Brother DC shortly.
Big love for the Aldrich clan.
Aldrich joined Whitesnake in 2003 and played on 2008s Good To Be Bad and 2011s Forevermore , as well as appearing on several live releases, including 2013s Made In Japan and Made In Britain/The World Records .
Alrichs other band, Burning Rain which also features singer Keith St. John (ex-Montrose), Sean McNabb on bass (ex-Quiet Riot, Dokken, House of Lords) and Mat Starr on drums (Ace Frehley), released their third record, Epic Obsession , a year ago.
