Whitesnake leader David Coverdale states: "When I asked all the band members to put together their wish-list of potential drummers for us... everyone, without exception, had TA at the top of the list. Also, most of the fans who communicated their suggestions on WS.com wanted Tommy back in the band. So, without further ado, we are delighted to welcome him back with us. It seems it is our destiny to work together... this is going to be so much fun. Welcome back, TA!!!"
Aldridge states: "I can't express how honored and grateful I am to be back in the Snake fold. Working with DC & Co. has always been a labor of love. SO stoked to be back and finish what we started!!"
Says the band: "Whitesnake would like to thank all the amazing musicians who honored us by applying for the position of drummer. We were blown away by so much incredible talent and we wish each and every one the very best in their lives and careers."
