WHITE LION drummer Troy Patrick Farrell has left HOOKERS N BLOW, the cover band led by GUNS N' ROSES keyboardist Dizzy Reed.Commented Troy, "I've been doing HOOKERS N BLOW for some years now, and when the writing is on the wall, sometimes you've got to stop and read the writing." He continued, "There are too many other opportunities to pursue in addition to many things with WHITE LION in 2008. It's also time to play with some other people and find some new challenges musically. "Since WHITE LION is active a few months out of the year, I have time off to plan projects with some new guys and to put something different together as well as something that has some musical integrity, whether it's a cover gig or original. I'm looking forward to working with some new players." Troy can be reached via his personal site, www.drummertroy.com, or MySpace page. WHITE LION's first studio album in 16 years, entitled "Return of the Pride", will be released on March 14 via Frontiers Records. The CD was produced by Mike Tramp and Claus Langeskov during 2007 in both Australia and Copenhagen.
