Guitarist Reb Beach (WHITESNAKE, WINGER) has issued the following year-end update:
"Well, it was a great year with the WINGER boys. We toured all through Europe, and had a great run in South America. I am home now, and looking forward to writing something cool.
"I recently went to Tahoe to record the new WHITESNAKE record. It was a great experience. I worked closely with Doug [Aldrich, guitar] and David [Coverdale, vocals], and we got some great solos. I did a lot of singing as well and I even had the honor of doing sort of a duet with David.
"The record sounds fantastic with some classic WHITESNAKE-type songs.
"I want to announce that I am playing in New York City at a jazz club called Iridium on December 27th. Click here for more information on the show. It is a tribute to Les Paul, and I am in some great company with the other artists who have done it. Todd Rungren, Jeff Beck, Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, and Slash! Come down if you can, it should be great fun.
"I am booking a clinic tour for the latter part of January in Italy. I will play Rome, Florence, Venice, Pisa, and Bologna plus a few more. I will [announce] the dates when I have them.
"I am thinking WHITESNAKE will tour the world again in the spring, so I look forward to seeing all my friends around the world again."
WHITESNAKE has set "Forevermore" as the title of its new album, tentatively due at the end of March 2011 via Frontiers Records.
