Whitesnake Plan New Album

No, it's not Poison. Whitesnake will release Flesh & Blood in 2018. This album will be available via Frontiers. As with all things Whitesnake, I'll probably be a first day buyer of this new album.

And... it'll be great.

Kick ass lineup here. Coverdale always seems to surround himself with the cream of the crop! 👍

Also, Sorry to go off topic, but Happy Birthday in Heaven to Randy Rhodes,one of the biggest influences in all my years of playing the guitar.

Will certainly catch them on tour this year with Foreigner! Hey Jeff; Call Don and get the original Dokken together for this fun summer tour. One can only dream....

Gary hits the nail squarely on the head. Coverdale definitely surrounds himself with high quality musicians, so there is a good chance that this new record will be tasty.

Kixchick ... Super Stroke will have to do in lieu of any full Dokken reunion, it seems. At least with Lynch, Pilson and Brown it makes three-quarters of the classic lineup.

Since Coverdale can’t sing his way out of a paper bag these days, you can bet his vocals will be punched in. Which also probably means this album WILL sound good.

Are they that hard up have to rip off other bands album titles

Bill F., they were going to call it _Skin & Bones_ and put Coverdale's face on a pirate flag. But that was a bit too on the nose.

Metalboy! has it right: what is the point of having a great cast of supporting players if: (a) your singer sounds like a choirboy eating glass; and (2) your singer is not aware that mic thrusts are not only age inappropriate, but skeezy as hell?!?! At this point, Coverdale should hang it up or release an album of covers, with the lead single being a cover of Cher's "Believe."

When you are largely reduced to being a studio act (oh, recall the days of Powell and Sykes and Murray, or even earlier), perhaps that is the tranche into which you should exclusively pour your efforts into. And/or reduce your tour load to one-offs and festivals so as to accommodate broken pipes that can't handle the rigors of touring. All of which is to say, I suspect a new album means a new tour.

. . . one too many "intos." My life for an editor!

Yes, HIM, but if you re-read my comments, you’ll see I said this new album WILL most likely sound GOOD (primarily due to auto tuning and aggressive editing)!

Another bit of your good sense working its way into my post. I heartily agree! I only crib from the best.
