Re: Doug Aldrich leaves Whitesnake


I think RB can pretty much return to his SIUA style of playing, although his rock playing has become more predictable since then using the same runs and so forth. I think they should do something other than pure hard rock though. A more bluesier affair catering to DC's voice? I think they could both shine there.

Page has been saying he has a lot of new material for 10 years, yet he hasn't come out with anything. To then have him reunite with DC just seems too farfetched to me.

Re: Doug Aldrich leaves Whitesnake


Don't forget the other factor here will be money. In Whitesnake David can take the lion share and pay his collaborators accordingly. If he partners with Blackmore, Page or someone of that ilk then the income will have to be divided more evenly. I'm sure Sykes will hold out for a big slice as well.

For a new project to work with a big name for David it will indeed have to be an arena style approach to produce enough greenbacks for all concerned.

Good point Wojak. This bodes for another shredder emoticon

Re: Doug Aldrich leaves Whitesnake


I think Page is a non-starter. Jimmy is 70 now and DC couldn't sing any of the CP material anymore anyway. Even though Ritchie's no spring chicken either, he might be ready for one last shot at the big time- or at least big time compared to Blackmore's Night. I'd love to think DC and Ritchie could do something, even as a one off- but if he had something up his sleeve with Ritchie, why has he been jamming ideas with Doug?

Indeed Oldtimer. Somehow I think a reunion with RB is just too unlikely.

Re: Doug Aldrich leaves Whitesnake


Jimmy has been in Boston all weekend giving the commencement speeches at Berklee as well as receiving an honorary doctorate. When asked what his plans were, he said "to find people to play with" as he mentioned he has a wealth of material to choose from.

I see Jimmy a more likely choice than Ritchie, but as far as I'm concerned DC couldn't go wrong either way.

Re: Doug Aldrich leaves Whitesnake


I think C/P was very much a product of the early 90s, both were at loose ends at a point when JP was still active as a musician and DC still had the voice sort of. To have them reconvene 20+ years later to reunite what was very much a one-off just seems too unlikely, even though they're still friends.

I could see them doing a LZIII style album...1/2 electric, 1/2 acoustic although he could do that with Ritchie too.

Re: Doug Aldrich leaves Whitesnake


Some great comment and thinking. Alas, I think, probably what will happen is very little! As has been mentioned here, and on other threads, DC doesn't do that much - be it 2 albums in 12 years, or on the reissues, we rarely get anything of note. He has some health considerations, and his family is important to him. He is at a time in his life where naturally people slow down. And DC cant really slow down much more!

I'd love to hear many of the things folks have mentioned. But, if we get 1 or 2 of the suggestions, we would be very fortunate.

You might be right but I'm curious about Doug's big plans comment and his reference to the David Coverdale Band... We will see of course.
