After seven years in the band, keyboard player Timothy Drury thought the time was right to quit Whitesnake and pursue a solo career. Here's his farewell letter:
"For over seven years now I have been fortunate enough to travel the world, to play and sing my heart out and to share the stage with David Coverdale as a part of Whitesnake. During that time I have been inspired and filled with such a great sense of the beauty that the world has to offer and also with the joy that music can bring to an audience. More than ever, I see the value of what I can express as a composer and producer, photographer, songwriter, singer... as an artist. That is why I must now say my goodbyes to you all and take my leave to pursue some very important creative projects that have been brewing for some time now.
UK hard-rockers Whitesnake have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

Michael Devin commented: "It's an honor to be welcomed into the Whitesnake family. I'm a big fan. Whitesnake is notorious for exciting musicianship, David's history is rich, and I'm very proud to be here."
Whitesnake have officially announced that bassist Uriah Duffy & drummer Chris Fraizer are going their separate ways from the band after a fun filled & successful journey together.

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.
As posted by Whitesnake, a couple of days ago on 12 August:
"Unfortunately, last night at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver, Whitesnake had to cut their performance short due to Mr Coverdale experiencing considerable pain in his vocal chords. He was immediately taken to a specialist for examination. The specialist discovered that David was suffering from severe vocal fold edema and a left vocal fold vascular lesion. He was instructed to cancel all performances for the next two weeks & then undergo a further examination. The doctors told us we were fortunate this was caught at a stage where no apparent permanent damage has been caused. We therefore regretfully have to announce that Whitesnake will not be appearing on the remainder of the US tour with Judas Priest, Whitesnake sincerely regrets any disappointment this may cause."
